TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 14, 2010) - BE Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BER) ("BE" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the third borehole in its five-hole drilling campaign commenced in September of this year. Hole #3 is located approximately one-half mile (750 metres) north of the first hole drilled in the series, in the northern region of a bertrandite zone identified by historic exploration on the property. Hole #3 has been drilled to a depth of 2,000 feet.

"We are pleased with the progress we are continuing to make at Warm Springs," said David Tognoni, President and CEO, "previous drill results have confirmed the ore thickness and grades encountered by the U.S. Bureau of Mines in the 1960's. As well, we have commenced drilling the fourth hole in our five-hole campaign."

Assays results on the Company's first drill hole at Warm Springs indicated maximum grades exceeding one percent beryllium oxide and that drilling intersected a beryllium mineralized zone in excess of 100 feet in thickness. ALS Minerals performed sample preparation and assay work on the core samples and results were disclosed by the Company in its release of December 2, 2010.
