Six of the diamond drill holes reported herein (DDHs 08KV1083, 1093, 1095, 1098, 1100 and 1102) are in-fill holes drilled on 25m centres within the Central Area of BSN. As expected, results confirm continuous substantial thicknesses that should allow BSN to be economically exploited through bulk mining. DDH 08KV1093 marks the inner edge of the BSN on section 3 (see Schedules).

DDH08KV1094 is on the most westerly section being drilled on BSN during this in-fill program and confirms the probability that the skarn mineralization continues for some distance to the south, potentially adding substantial resources at El Valle.

In other corporate news, Kinbauri is pleased to announce that it recently received a VAT (Value Added Tax) refund in the amount of $1.6M from the Spanish Government and is currently awaiting infusions of $750,000 from government subsidies; in addition $360,000US is pending from the sale of gold residue recovered from cleanup of the mill's gravity circuit. Kinbauri is now well capitalized with the $1M from its recent private placement with Anglo Pacific Group (press release of April 23, 2008) and the $7.5M royalty payment (press release of March 10, 2008) that is expected to close by next Monday. It can now complete its 23,000M infill drilling program ahead of schedule and subsequently commence an aggressive exploratory drill program at its El Valle and Carles properties in search of additional resources. The pending feasibility study, to be completed this year, will allow Kinbauri the alternative of financing the remainder of its pre-production development by non-dilutive alternatives.

The underground drill program at El Valle is being supervised by Mr. Santiago Gonzalez-Nistal, Kinbauri Espana's senior geologist, with quality control being provided by Dr. C. F. Gleeson, P. Eng., Kinbauri's Vice-President of Exploration: both are qualified persons as defined by N.I. 43-101.
