Skyharbour Resources Ltd. : Western Athabasca Syndicate Provides Drill Program Update at Preston Property: Discovers Elevated Radioactivity and Expands Drillin

Suite 1610 - 777 Dunsmuir Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada, V7Y 1K4

April 15, 2014
Vancouver, BC - Skyharbour Resources Ltd.
(TSX-V: SYH)(OTC Grey: SYHBF)(Frankfurt:SC1N) ("Skyharbour") is pleased to
provide an update at its ongoing first-phase diamond drill program on its
flagship Preston Uranium Property (the "Property") in the southwest Athabasca
Basin. The Western Athabasca Syndicate (the "Syndicate") has drilled five
holes thus far for a total of 986 metres with three to four additional holes

All five of the holes intersected a broad, hydrothermally altered and
reactivated, structural zone. Three holes returned elevated radioactivity. As
a result of these highly encouraging early findings, the Syndicate has
decided to increase the budget and expand the testing of the Swoosh target.
The additional drilling on this target will continue until late April.
Drilling is planned to recommence in early to mid-May after breakup to test
the CHA and Fin targets.

The initial five drill holes tested the Swoosh target, a six-kilometre long
corridor consisting of geophysically anomalous areas as defined by gravity,
magnetic and EM surveys, coincident with surficial geochemical anomalies.
Four holes were completed down to depths of between 200 and 275 metres while
the fifth hole was abandoned due to poor drilling conditions. Overburden
depth varies from 4 to 38 metres and immediately overlies basement rock.

Property - Swoosh Target Map:

Three of the holes at Swoosh intersected zones of elevated radioactivity as
defined by a downhole gamma probe with the best results to date occurring in
hole PN14003 which contained several radioactive intervals; the most notable
being 802 counts per second (cps) over 1.95 metres from 186.68 to 188.63
metres downhole in a background of 80 to 100 cps. The initial three holes
also intersected multiple graphitic units within sheared and altered basement
lithologies. The alteration commonly consists of pervasive chlorite, hematite
and clay development; features which are associated with uranium
mineralization in the Athabasca Basin. A review of final assays and
geochemistry will be carried out upon receipt of results expected in May.

All holes were angle holes, drilled at -45 to -50 degrees. They were
radiometrically surveyed
using a RS-230 gamma-ray spectrometer, and a Mount Sopris 2PGA-1000 downhole
natural gamma probe. Natural gamma radiation in drill core reported in this
news release was measured in counts per second (cps). All intersections are
downhole and core interval measurements and true thicknesses are yet to be
determined. The reader is cautioned that a total counts gamma probe reading
is the result of natural gamma radiation that may come from various sources
including cosmic radiation, thorium, potassium and uranium and its
radioactive decay products. CPS values cannot be certain to correlate with
uranium grades of the rock but are a general guide of the radioactivity of
minerals present in rock placed in proximity to the instrument.

The Syndicate's Technical Team considers these findings in the early stages of
the first drill program to be a significant breakthrough towards locating
shallow uranium mineralization, and have decided to expand the initial drill
plan at the Swoosh target as a result. Two to three additional holes will be
drilled at Swoosh before breakup at the end of April with drilling to
recommence in early May.

Uranium Property Map and Regional Exploration Corridors:

The three initial target areas, out of a growing target base currently
standing at fifteen, were selected by the Syndicate's Technical Committee for
drilling based on encouraging fieldwork results and coincident anomalies from
ground gravity, airborne and ground EM and magnetics (graphitic conductors
and structures), radon, soil, biogeochem, lake sediment, prospecting and
geological mapping surveys. This drill campaign represents the first
modern-day drill exploration program on the Preston Uranium Property with
follow up programs planned for later this year given the encouraging results
to date.

Jordan Trimble, President and CEO of Skyharbour Resources, states: "We are
very excited with the early findings in this ongoing first phase of drilling
and are planning to extend the program into May as a result. The visual
signatures and elevated radioactivity seen in the core from these first few
holes confirm the prospectivity of the Swoosh target and illustrate the
strong discovery potential at the Preston Property."

The Preston Uranium Property:

The 246,643 hectare Preston Uranium Property is the largest individual
property proximal to Fission Uranium Corp.'s Patterson Lake South ("PLS")
high-grade uranium discovery and the recent discovery made by NexGen Energy
on the Rook 1 Project (see NexGen's news release dated Feb. 19, 2014). The
Syndicate is the largest land tenure holder in the southwest Athabasca Basin
region including properties strategically situated to the southwest and to
the northeast of the PLS and NexGen discoveries.

Over $2.5 million dollars in exploration has been carried out to date by the
Syndicate on the Preston property and many priority targets remain for
further follow up with both fieldwork and drill testing. The Syndicate
continues to employ a systematic, proven exploration methodology that has led
to numerous uranium discoveries in the region and throughout the Athabasca
Basin. This has been very effective in identifying numerous high-quality
targets at Preston with similar geological features and exploratory
indicators as those at the nearby PLS and NexGen discoveries as well as other
deposits in the Athabasca Basin.

About the Western Athabasca Syndicate:

The Western Athabasca Syndicate is a strategic partnership formed between
Skyharbour, Athabasca Nuclear, Lucky Strike and Noka to explore and develop a
287,130 hectare suite of uranium properties that is the largest land position
along the highly prospective margin of the Western Athabasca Basin controlled
by a single group. Under the terms of the agreement, each of the four
companies has an option to earn 25% of the five uranium properties comprising
the Western Athabasca Syndicate Partnership by making a series of cash
payments, share payments, and incurring their pro-rata amount of the total
$6,000,000 in exploration expenditures over the two-year earn-in term of the
agreement. The properties were acquired for their proximity to the PLS
discovery and interpreted favourable geology for the occurrence of PLS style
uranium mineralization. The bulk of the Syndicate land package is bisected by
all-weather Highway 955 which runs north through the PLS discovery on to the
former Cluff Lake uranium mine.

The Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan hosts the world's largest and richest
high-grade uranium deposits which have grades substantially higher than the
world average grade of about 0.1% U3O8. The Patterson Lake area has received
escalating exploration attention and claim acquisition activity as a result
of the new, near surface discoveries made by Fission which includes the
recently reported drill interval of 38.49% U3O8over 10.5 metres in drill hole
PLS14-129. Consistent high-grade, near surface U3O8assays from Fission
demonstrate the potential for high-grade uranium mineralization on the
geologically prospective yet underexplored margins of the western side of the
Athabasca Basin.

Management cautions, mineralization present on proximal properties is not
necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Syndicate's Property.
