Tribute Receives Final Indium & Gallium Results from the Arrow Zone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - June 6, 2006) - Tribute Minerals Inc. (the "Company' or "Tribute") (TSX VENTURE:TBM) has received the indium and gallium assays completed on samples intersecting the Arrow Zone from drill-hole GL-2006-24. The previously announced (April 25, 2006 NR) intersection of 6.4 metres (5.0 metres true width) of 4.7% Zn, 0.57% Cu, 40.6 g/t Ag and 0.16 g/t Au assayed 31.5 g/t In and 42.1 g/t Ga. This section included 4.5 metres of 6.5% Zn, 0.69% Cu, 54 g/t Ag, and 0.2 g/t Au which assayed 44.3 g/t In and 42.3 g/t Ga.

Recent Indium prices were quoted at $1,000/kg and Gallium at $650/kg. Both metals have seen explosive growth in use in the high tech industry; Indium is a main component in flat screen liquid crystal displays (LCD's), and gallium in the computer chip and solar panel industries.

High analyses (greater than 10,000ppm, 1%) for copper and zinc were submitted for ore grade AA62 analysis (4 acid dissolution with AA finish). Standard QA/QC protocols were fulfilled by ALS Chemex. The Confederation Lake exploration program is under the direction of Trevor Boyd, P.Geo., Geological Consultant, Tribute Minerals, and a qualified person (QP) for the purposes of NI 43-101.
