DDH08KV1105, lying on Section 11.5, is one of the most significant holes drilled to date at El Valle, not only because of the large thickness of high grade gold and copper mineralization, but also because of implications for increasing the extent of this "high grade skarn". Numerous in-fill holes being completed in the area east of Section 11 show similar thicknesses and mineralization (assays pending) to those found in DDH08KV1105. Taken together they indicate a horizontal mineralized body in the order of 20m thick and 100m wide in the vicinity of Section 11 and 12 that is open to the east and south; this raises the possibility that the East Area of Black Skarn North could extend to the Monica Zone and beyond. The "high grade skarn" is a result of skarn mineralization being overprinted by multiple epithermal structures.

Dr. V. N. Rampton, President of Kinbauri, commented: "With the most recent results of the in-fill drilling, we are seeing potential for a significant increase in gold and copper resources above those previously estimated. If the high grade phase of Black Skarn North continues to the east and south, this will add even more ounces to those previously anticipated".

Carles: Carles North:

Exploration drilling at the Carles mine to delineate the extent of the Carles North zone (see Schedule C: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/ScheduleC_0520.pdf) has been completed. Results for holes 07KC1001 through KC1005 were previously reported in press releases of December 13th, 2007 and January 29th, 2008. Results from the final four holes are reported below:

DDHs 07KC1003, 07KC1004, 07KC1005, 07KC1007 and07KC1008 (see Schedule) all show the continuity of the Carles North skarn Cu-Au mineralization at depth. Kinbauri is presently determining the costs of a short decline of 250m in order to access Carles North at a further 300m down-dip in order to assess the full potential of the Carles North zone.

The underground drill program at El Valle and Carles 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. Details of Kinbauri's Assay and Quality Assurance Programs are reported in a press release of February 27th, 2008. This press release was prepared by Drs V. N. Rampton, P. Eng and C. F. Gleeson, P. Eng. in their capacity as qualified persons. Dr. Rampton's web-casts concerning assay results obtained from El Valle and Carles and Kinbauri's mine development plans are available on Kinbauri's official Investor Relations Site at http://www.agoracom.com/IR/kinbauri.

Kinbauri is a TSXV - Tier 1 Mineral Exploration Company focused on the development of mineral properties, primarily precious metal prospects in northwestern Spain, Nevada and Canada.
