TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2011) - Nebu Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NBU) -


Nebu Resources Inc. ("Nebu" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NBU) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the right to earn a 100% interest in an extensive, highly prospective land position (the "Mallard Property") adjacent to the north of the Augen Gold Corp.'s Jerome Property, and northwest of Trelawney Mining and Exploration Inc.'s Cote Lake Property.


-- The Mallard Property covers 11,600 acres (290 mineral claim units) in
Mallard Township
-- Covers the location of historic gold occurrences and the extensions of
historic gold occurrences
-- Diamond drilling on or very near the Mallard Property (exact locations
for some holes uncertain at this time) returned gold values of up to
0.20 ounces gold per ton over 7.1 feet (6.9 g/t over 2.2 meters) and
0.054 ounces gold per ton over 20.5 7 feet (1.9 g/t over 6.25 meters)
(Noranda - Beryl Resources)
-- One hole drilled to test a parallel gold zone approximately 366 meters
to the northeast on the Mallard Property assayed 0.155 ounces gold per
ton over a 12.6 foot core length (5.3 g/t over 3.84 meters)
-- Just east of the Mallard Property, historic drilling in 1959 intersected
gold mineralization that assayed 0.20 ounces per ton gold over a core
length of 13.5 feet (6.9 g/t over 4.11 meters)
-- Other parallel, northwest striking shears, quartz veins and gold
occurrences have been reported on and near the Mallard Property, none of
which have been properly evaluated
-- The Mallard Property covers 9 kilometers of the large shear zone and
geological terrain intruded by felsic intrusions
-- Extension of the shear zone between the two gold occurrence areas is
largely covered by overburden and has never been drill tested over the
4000 meter interval
-- Extensive areas of strong shearing, strong carbonate alteration and
quartz veining reported on and near the Mallard Property in limited
historic data
-- Most areas of gold mineralization on and near the Mallard Property
remain mostly untested
-- Historic ground geophysical surveys indicate the presence of
chargeability anomalies in the area of the historic gold occurrences
indicating the likely presence of significant accumulations of sulphide
mineralization in proximity of the gold occurrences
-- Several areas of known felsic intrusions similar to the main host to
gold mineralization on the Trelawney and Augen Gold properties to the
-- Comprehensive exploration program to commence immediately
