Kimber Announces Another Drill-Ready Exploration Target

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 24, 2005) - Kimber
Resources (TSX:KBR) is pleased to announce that its program of mapping,
prospecting, and sampling has developed a large drill-ready exploration
target.

This target, the "Carotare", lies two kilometres to the west of Carmen
on a parallel structure. Known for some time as one of the many
mineralized structures to be investigated, the Carotare's priority was
raised by positive results from a program of mapping and sampling.

Surface features of the Carotare make it a prime target for drilling:
The mineralized zone, as defined by alteration and anomalous gold
values, appears to be some 60 metres wide, and one kilometre in length.
Similarities to the Carmen include splays, sub-parallel structures, and
the suite of alteration minerals.

Sampling at surface has produced an encouraging range of values with up
to 8 g/t gold within a 0.1 g/t alteration envelope. Chip sampling of an
old tunnel sub-parallel to the structure yielded 2.9 g/t gold over 10
metres. Sampling of a cross-cut produced 0.7 g/t gold and 14 g/t silver
over 18 metres. The face of a shallow shaft returned 4.2 g/t gold and 35
g/t silver over 4 metres. In the vicinity of this shaft a series of 2.0
metre samples returned 6.9 g/t gold & 83 g/t silver, 1.7 g/t gold & 17
g/t silver, and 7.8 g/t gold & 31 g/t silver.

Road access is now being upgraded. Drilling on the Carotare is scheduled
to begin within two weeks.

Mr. Alan Hitchborn, B.Sc., Vice President Development, manages the field
program of sampling, trenching and drilling on the Monterde project. Mr.
J.B. Richards, P.Eng., Vice President Engineering, and designated Q.P.
for the project is responsible for quality control. QA./QC procedures
incorporate blanks and duplicates inserted at the drill site and
standards inserted after sample preparation. Drilling is by reverse
circulation. A one eighth split of each two-metre section of the drill
hole, weighing approximately 6 kg is processed by ALS Chemex at its
preparation laboratory in Hermosillo, Mexico. Pulps are analysed by ALS
Chemex at its laboratory in North Vancouver, British Columbia, using 50
gram subsamples, fire assay with an AA finish for gold and four-acid
digestion and ICP finish for silver from a 0.4 gram subsample. Highgrade
gold or silver intervals are re-assayed by fire assay with gravimetric
finish.
