Cabo Awarded 6,200 Meter Follow-Up Drill Contract

North Vancouver, BC – Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) announces that Thundermin Resources Inc. (TSX: THR) and 50 per-cent joint venture partner, Cornerstone Resources Inc. (TSX-V: CGB); have awarded the Company’s Atlantic division, a contract to complete a 6,200 meter follow-up diamond drilling program on Thundermin and Cornerstone’s Little Deer Copper Property located approximately 10 kilometers north of Springdale in north-central Newfoundland.

The purpose of the current drill program, which follows 4,940 meters of drilling in eight holes completed by Cabo in 2007, is: 1) to discover additional high-grade copper and/or copper-zinc mineralization in the western portion of the Little Deer property; and 2) to further define the continuity, grade and distribution of high-grade copper mineralization intersected in relatively wide-spaced (50 to 100 m) holes drilled in the eastern portion of the property below and along strike from areas of the Little Deer copper deposit mined in the early 1970’s.
