Drilling Extends High Grade Skarn at Kinbauri's El Valle Project Drills 15.2m of 8.2g Au/t, 18.0g Ag/t and 1.19% Cu Including 5.8m of 25.1g Au/t, 37.8g Ag/t and 2.04% Cu

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 20, 2008) - Kinbauri Gold Corp. ("Kinbauri") (TSX VENTURE:KNB)(FRANKFURT:3KG.DE) is pleased to announce continued results from its on-going 23,000m underground in-fill diamond drilling program at El Valle (over 75% the program is now complete). Highlights of assay results from Black Skarn North ("BSN") and Area 107 ("107") include:



- 35.8m grading 4.9g Au/t, 13.9g Ag/t and 0.80% Cu in 08KV1117,
including 5.8m grading 11.1g Au/t, 36.5 Ag/t and 1.14% Cu.

- 15.2m grading 8.2g Au/t, 18.0g Ag/t and 1.19%Cu also in 08KV1117,
including 3.8m grading 25.1g Au/t, 37.8g Ag/t and 2.04% Cu.

- 25.0m grading 4.1g Au/t, 2.8g Ag/t and 0.21% Cu in 08KV1110,
including 1.7m grading 12.2g Au/t, 2.0g Ag/t and 0.05% Cu.

- 17.9m grading 3.9g Au/t, 16.0g Ag/t and 0.54% Cu in 08KV1103,
including 3.1m grading 10.8g Au/t, 53.5g Ag/t and 1.18% Cu.

- 9.1m grading 12.1g Au/t, 47.2g Ag/t and 2.69% Cu in 08KV1120,
including 4.3m grading 23.8g Au/t, 97.1g Ag/t and 5.53% Cu.


Results from 08KV1117 on section 12 indicate an extension of the "high grade skarn" (hereafter referred to as the San Martin Zone) at least 30m further south of 08KV1105. The San Martin zone was first identified in 08KV1105 (press release of May 20th, 2008). As suggested in our press release of June 3rd, continuation of the San Martin Zone to the Monica Zone, a further 200 m to the south, would result in a significant increase in El Valle's total gold and copper resources.

Holes 08KV1116, 08KV1118 and 08KV1120 are in-fill holes located in the Central Area of BSN, where chalcopyrite-magnetic skarn is overprinted by epithermal mineralization associated with the Charnela Zone. This results in substantial Au-Ag-Cu enrichment, most dramatically illustrated by the 4.25m of 23.79g Au/t, 97.1g Ag/t and 5.53% Cu in 08KV1120. Holes 08KV1103, 08KV1110 and 08KV1119 are in-fill holes in the West Area of BSN that confirm the thickness and grade of previously drilled Au-Ag-Cu bearing skarn in this Area (press releases of February 27th, March 10th and April 17th, 2008). Hole 08KV1068 is on section 5 and is from the oxidized sector of Area 107 where gold is hosted in jasperoid breccia.

Assays from the latest ten diamond drill holes are summarized as follows:
