Cabo to Drill Up to 11,000 Meters for Paragon Minerals Corporation

North Vancouver, BC – Cabo Drilling Corp.’s (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) Atlantic division, Cabo Drilling (Atlantic) Corp., has entered into a contract with Paragon Minerals Corporation (TSX-V: PGR) of Vancouver, British Columbia, to drill up to 11,000 meters on eight gold and base metal projects in central Newfoundland.

Drilling has commenced on Paragon’s Golden Promise Project (a property under option to Crosshair Exploration & Mining).  The drilling program will consist of 3,750-meters (23 holes) and will target the Jaclyn Main Zone (2,950 meters) and the Jaclyn North zone (800 meters).  The planned drill program at the Jaclyn Main Zone will consist of infill and step-out drilling.  The infill drilling is designed to test the grade continuity within the core of the vein system with the aim of building a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource.  The step-out drilling is aimed at further extending the mineralized zone.  The Jaclyn North Zone, located approximately 200 meters north-northwest of the Jaclyn Main Zone, has seen limited drilling (six holes, 1,197 meters) with drill intercepts of 5.24 g/t gold over 1.7 meters (GP06-51).  Drilling will consist of step-out drilling to test the continuity of the Jaclyn North Zone.

In addition to Paragon’s Golden Promise Project, Cabo will drill three of Paragon’s 100% owned base metal VMS projects (Lake Douglas, South Tally Pond and Harpoon projects) located in the highly prospective Victoria Lake volcanic belt in central Newfoundland and four of Paragon’s 100% owned gold projects (JBP Linear, Appleton Linear, New World and Mt. Peyton) located in the Gander area, Newfoundland.
