Vancouver, Canada, January 20, 2006 – Solomon Resources Ltd. (SRB:TSX-V) is pleased to announce that it has received the cash proceeds of A $ 1,100,000, from the release of environmental bonds previously held by the Western Australia Department of Mines. The bonds have been replaced by Integra Mining, the purchaser of Solomon’s Randall’s Tenements (see Solomon News Release dated August 2nd, 2005). Solomon has also received 6,967,485 shares of Integra stock, initially priced at A $ 0.071 per share.
