Yorbeau Commences Drilling with Two Rigs

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 27, 2009) - Yorbeau Resources, Inc. ("Yorbeau") (TSX:YRB.A) is pleased to report that it has initiated drilling on the Cinderella East target of its Rouyn property. Two diamond drill rigs are operating to extend the zone of high grade gold mineralization discovered in this area during the Company's 2008 drilling campaign, which was penetrated by drill holes 08-CI-464 and 08-CI-467 (see press releases of September 25, 2008 and January 20, 2009).



The Company discovered this new zone in the fall of 2008 about 700 metres east of the historic Cinderella prospect. In order to distinguish between the two zones, management has decided to re-name the new zone, referred to in previous releases as the Cinderella target, as the Cinderella East target. The spatial relationships of the two zones are shown on the accompanying long section.


In 2008, with 17,000 meters of drilling, Yorbeau discovered two new zones of high grade gold mineralization in the Cinderella and Lac Gamble areas that lie between the Astoria and Augmitto deposits along approximately 5 km of largely unexplored ground. Management has decided to initiate the 2009 program on Cinderella East because of the intensity of alteration and mineralization (hole 464 returned 8.1 g/t gold over 7.0 meters core length and hole 467 returned 27.3 g/t gold over 4.8 meters core length) observed in drill core from this area. Another factor is that the Piche Group is thicker and less deformed in this area, which is important for the preservation of gold deposits that may have formed in this area.
