VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 23, 2007) - Africo Resources Ltd. (TSX:ARL) (the "Company") reported today that it has been advised that one of its former employees in the Democratic Republic of Congo (the "DRC"), Mr. Alessandro Berardone, with whom the Company is in a labour dispute regarding the termination of his employment, has ex parte and without proper notice to the Company, obtained a default judgement against the Company for the payment of damages in the amount of US$3,000,400.

Dr. Tony Harwood, President and CEO stated: "Based on legal advice received from senior counsel in the DRC, the Company believes that the judgement obtained is frivolous, illegal and unenforceable and should be set aside."
