Carlaw Capital III Corp. Announces Qualifying Transaction

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 15, 2008) - Carlaw Capital III Corp. ("Carlaw" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:CW.P) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive acquisition agreement dated August 14, 2008 with JAB Resources Limited ("JAB"), an Australian private corporation, and Mr. Robert Murdoch, an officer and director of JAB, pursuant to which Carlaw will complete a business combination to acquire JAB (the "Proposed Transaction").

When completed, the Proposed Transaction will constitute Carlaw's qualifying transaction pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), and is subject to compliance with all necessary regulatory approvals and certain other terms and conditions. A comprehensive press release with further particulars relating to the Proposed Transaction will follow in accordance with the policies of the TSXV.


JAB Resources, through its wholly-owned local subsidiary JAB RESOURCES SH PK, holds five exploration concessions in Albania. The concessions are prospective for chromite, platinum, gold, copper and nickel. JAB is currently undertaken drilling on the concessions, subsequent to a program of geological mapping, old data compilation and trench channel sampling. JAB's initial focus is the fast tracking of chromite mining within Exploration Concession 1125 Kalimash, located in north eastern Albania. JAB has identified two target areas where resource definition drilling is now in progress to define an open cut chromite resource in accordance with NI 43 101. Chromite is an essential component of stainless steel and the outlook for chromite over the next few years is that the metal will be in short supply.

JAB has an experienced board of directors comprising Rob Murdoch (Geologist) Pat Scott (Mining Engineer) P.Roy (Metallurgist and Business Manager). The Executive Chairman, Mr. Murdoch, has 40 years international mining and business experience and has been instrumental in the establishing and building of a number of ASX Listed companies. JAB's management is supported by a number of experienced Albanian geologists some with international experience, and with the approaching feasibility study JAB is now recruiting mining specialists.

Albania is emerging from decades of communist rule and with the assistance of various international agencies economic reform is underway. However, JAB management is aware of the ongoing political and economic risks of doing business in Albania.

JAB has 43,439,577 shares on issue and just over $A 3 million in cash resources to fund the company's activities during the rest of 2008.
