Konigsberg Corporation Reports on Historical Bonanza Gold and Silver Grades on the Yoquivo Au-Ag Property

OAKVILLE, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 21, 2006 -- Konigsberg Corporation (OTCBB: KGBC) (FRANKFURT: F2C) ("Konigsberg" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the 2006 Exploration Program has started on the Yoquivo Au-Ag Property. Now that exploration is underway, the company would like to update shareholders on past production in the Yoquivo mining district. Konigsberg has the right to earn up to a 75% joint venture interest with Sydney Resource Corp. (TSX-V: SYR) in the Yoquivo Au-Ag property located in Chihuahua State, Mexico ("Yoquivo Au-Ag Property").

The mining concessions that comprise the Yoquivo Project are located approximately 210 km WSW of the city of Chihuahua, in the Municipality of Ocampo, state of Chihuahua. The total area of these concessions covers approximately 2500 hectares. The Yoquivo district has been worked recurrently for over 140 years, going back to the late 1800s. The most productive years of the Yoquivo mining district were between 1908 to 1926 when 728,000 grams of gold, and 75 million grams of silver were produced from steeply dipping, siliceous veins in the footwall to the main San Francisco fault/vein (this production was by the Yoquivo Development Company of New York, New York). Average grades during this peak production period are reported as 10.9 g/t Au and 1120 g/t Ag.

Selected grabs samples provided by the property vendor from the San Francisco and Esperanza Veins exposed in the underground workings returned the following results. These results are consistent with the bonanza grades reported by previous workers.

The current owner of the land has held the Yoquivo Au-Ag Property since 1956. A small-scale, fully functional 75-100 tpd gravity mill owned by the property vendor is located on site. The property is road accessible, and mapping has now started on the property.

"With substantial previous production on the property, and bonanza grades reported of over 200 g/t gold and 19,800 g/t silver, management is excited to have moved to the exploration stage on the Yoquivo Au-Ag Project. We are not only encouraged about the historical grades but are thrilled about the exploration and production of this region," stated Adam Cegielski, President of Konigsberg.
