Verbina Announces Final Drilling Results on Vanward Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2008) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES

VERBINA RESOURCES INC. ("Verbina" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VUR) is pleased to announce that it has received the analytical results for the samples from 14 additional diamond drill holes completed on the Vanward Project high purity quartz zone.

The 14 holes were drilled in the second stage program over a strike length of approximately 75 metres within the central part of the zone. The purpose of these holes was to further define the size, shape and the contacts of the high purity quartz zone and also to provide additional material for sampling and analyses.

All holes were drilled within the high purity quartz zone. The core lengths noted and sampled are representative of the zone but are not and should not be considered to be true widths. Based on the drilling to date, the quartz body strikes N20 degrees E, dips east and has a true width in the order of 20 metres in its upper part which then narrows to about 10 metres at a depth of 100 metres.

Quality Control

The Company has a quality control program to ensure best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. Zones of high purity quartz are visually identifiable with a composite sample being taken from the zone within each drill hole. Commencing at the start of the high purity quartz zone and continuing to the end of the zone, at each one metre interval a 10 cm piece of BQ size drill core is removed and cut in half longitudinally. One half of the core is replaced in the core box and the other half becomes part of the composite sample which represents the total zone and is analyzed.

The drill core composite samples are transported in sealed, plastic sample bags to the ALS Chemex Prep Lab located in Sudbury, Ontario from where the pulps are shipped to the ALS Chemex Assay Laboratory in North Vancouver B.C. ALS Chemex is an ISO 9001-2000 registered laboratory.

The Company's Qualified Person (QP) for the Vanward Project is L.D.S. Winter, P.Geo., CEO and a Director of Verbina. The sampling was carried out by Mr. Winter and he has assembled the technical information contained in this news release.
