Nebu Provides Exploration Update and Will Attend the Timmins Big Event

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 16, 2011) - Nebu Resources Inc. ("Nebu") (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NBU) is pleased to update its current exploration activities and outline the Company's plans for the summer and fall of 2011.

The Company is presently completing the 9th and final hole of its initial drill program (see April 27, 2011 Press Release) on the highly prospective Mallard Property in Mallard Township, adjacent to the north of the Augen Gold Corp. ("Augen") Jerome Property and northwest of the Trelawney Mining and Exploration ("Trelawney") Cote Lake Property.

The total number of meters drilled for this initial program is approximately 1500 meters. Core is currently being logged and split and will be sent for assay.

The Company will be attending The Big Event in Timmins, Ontario on May 18th -19th (Booth: Arena 1, Front 5) and will be available to discuss the current drill program and the future programs planned for the Mallard Project and other properties.

Mallard Property

The Mallard Property covers 11,600 acres (290 mineral claim units) in Mallard Tp. in Ontario Canada. Most areas of gold mineralization on and near the property remain mostly untested, in part because gold mineralization in the area was first discovered in the 1930's when access was very difficult.

The property covers 9 kilometers of the large shear zone and geological terrain intruded by felsic intrusions. A number of northwest striking shears, quartz veins and gold occurrences have been reported on and near the property, none of which have been properly evaluated.

Bowman/Hislop Property - Significant targets have been identified in the area to the west of the nearby historic Canadian Arrow Mine property recently optioned by Murgor Resources.

Burtbush Property - The property consists of 53 mining claims containing 796 units covering a nominal 12,736 hectares in Bradette, Hurtubise, Kenning, Noseworthy and Singer townships, Ontario, a continuation of the Casa Berardi Deformation Zone.
