Kinbauri Intersects 4.45 Metres Grading 39.1 g/t Gold & 1.6% Copper

Drill Results at El Valle in NW Spain Exceeds Expectations

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) - Kinbauri Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KNB) ("Kinbauri") is pleased to announce that it has completed the exploratory phase of its underground drill program at El Valle, Asturias in northwestern Spain. The latest set of drill results have exceeded expectations with numerous high grade intersections, including:

- 39.1 g Au/t and 1.6% Cu over 4.45 metres

- 85 g Au/t and 8.2% Cu over 2.35 metres

The objective of this exploratory drilling program was to delineate enough resource within Area 107 and the Black Skarn zones at El Valle to support a minimal six-year mine life. Kinbauri's management is encouraged by results from the completed drill program and has commissioned an up-date of the NI 43-101 resource estimates for these two zones to determine whether the mine life threshold has indeed been exceeded.

A total of 6,273 metres were drilled during this resource expansion
program. Results from the final five holes are summarized below:

(1) See Schedule A for relative location; (2) True thicknesses are estimated to be 85 to 95% of intervals for 07KV1015R, 07KV1022, 07KV1023 and 07KV1024; 55% of intervals for 07KV1021; (3) A107 is Area 107 and NBS is Black Skarn North.

Complete results from the underground exploration program are reported in Schedule B and posted on Kinbauri's web-site, Area 107 and the Black Skarn Zone were targeted for this exploration drilling program because of the continuity of their gold and copper mineralization and proximity to existing mining and milling infrastructure. Kinbauri is now in the midst of completing 500 metres of drifting in order to access Area 107 and Black Skarn where 24,000 m of underground definition drilling is planned. Coincidental with the later part of this definition drilling program, engineering and mine development plans will be completed to allow development work to begin in 2009 and ultimately the recommencement of production at El Valle.

The drill programs are being supervised by Mr. Santiago Gonzalez-Nistral, Kinbauri Espana's senior geologist, with quality control being provided by Dr. C. F. Gleeson, P. Eng., Kinbauri's Vice-President of Exploration: both are qualified persons as defined by N.I. 43-101. Details of Kinbauri's Quality Assurance Program are reported in press release of July 19th, 2007.

This press release was prepared by Dr. V. N. Rampton, P. Eng in his capacity as a qualified person. Dr. Rampton will record a "Beyond The Press Release" on the Company's official Investor Relations Site at, where these developments will be discussed in detail. The recording is expected to be available on or after October 18th, 2007.
