Cabo Awarded Deep Drilling Contract for Cypress Development's Broulan Reef Project

North Vancouver, BC – Cabo Drilling Corp.’s (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) Ontario subsidiary, Cabo Drilling (Ontario) Corp., of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, has been awarded a contract by Cypress Development Corp. (TSX-V: CYP) for 15,000 feet of NQ core drilling.  The drilling will occur on Cypress’ Broulan Reef gold project, in the Bruce Channel area, in Red Lake, Northwestern Ontario. 

The Company will utilize a JKS Boyles BBS-75 diamond drill capable of drilling to depths of 2,400 meters.  Cabo anticipates the rig being mobilized to the Broulan Reef property in September 2007.

The program will commence from a drill site established on the eastern boundary of the property.  A deep “mother-hole” will be drilled at an approximate angle of 80 degrees, to the northwest corner of the Broulan Reef property.  The geological target is the Balmer Assemblage of rocks and the mother-hole will enter the Balmer Assemblage at its shallowest point on the east side of the property and continue in the Balmer Assemblage of rocks to the northwest corner of the claim group.

Once the mother-hole has been established to depth across the property, Cabo will drill a series of holes wedged off the mother-hole to explore the north half of the property.  Cypress intends to drill a 2nd mother-hole from the same general location on the east side of the property.  This second hole will be directed generally south-southwest across the Broulan Reef property to explore the known major geological nose fold on the Broulan Reef property.  Cypress plans a series of wedge holes from this 2nd location as well.

Cypress Development Corp. is a diversified precious and base metal exploration and development company based in Vancouver, British Columbia, with properties in Red Lake, Ontario, Canada, and in Nevada, U.S.A.
