Niblack Resource Upgraded

Increase in indicated tonnes and metal grades

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2009) - CBR Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CBG) ("CBG"), is pleased to announce that it has expanded and upgraded resources the Lookout Zone resource by 457,000 tonnes at its 100% owned Niblack Au-Cu-Ag-Zn project located southwest of Ketchikan on Prince of Wales Island, in Southeast Alaska.

The updated resource incorporates 19 new underground drill holes completed in 2008 within the Lookout 1 (L1) and Lookout 2 (L2) mineralized zones and now comprises an indicated resource of 2,272,000 tonnes grading 2.42 g/t Au, 34.66 g/t silver, 1.27% copper and 2.36% zinc and an inferred resource of 1,502,000 tonnes grading 2.22 g/t gold, 34.62 g/t silver, 1.68% copper, and 3.43% zinc based on a US $50 Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR") block cut-off.

Key Highlight Points:

- 2008 underground program added new tonnes and upgraded existing inferred resource tonnes to an indicated resource category

- Lookout resources expanded, with addition of 457,000 tonnes

- Increased indicated resource tonnes to 60% of the total resource, up from 43% in the initial resource estimate

- Copper and zinc grades increased within the indicated and inferred resource categories

- Copper, zinc, gold and silver grades increased within the inferred resource category

- Lookout mineralization remains open along strike and down plunge

"Since acquiring the Niblack Project, the CBG team has continued to systematically compile and evaluate the project with the expressed purpose of expanding the mineral resources in order to fast track to a production scenario," said CEO and President, John Williamson.

This 2009 Niblack mineral resource estimate was prepared by Abolfazl Ghayemghamian, P. Geo., of SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc., in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in NI 43-101 and CIM resource definitions. Mr. Ghayemghamian has reviewed and approved the contents of this release.

Niblack Deposit

The polymetallic VHMS mineralization at Niblack is hosted by a thick sequence of rhyolite that currently hosts six main massive sulphide occurrences - the historic Niblack Mine, Dama Zone, Lindsy Zone, Trio Zone, Mammoth Zone and Lookout Zone. Mineralization is controlled by fold repetition of the rhyolite sequence, with the Lookout and Trio zones located on the overturned limb of a property-scale synclinal fold.

(i)NSR equals ($37.93 x Cu% + $8.80 x Zn% + $10.11 x Au g/t + $0.13 x Ag g/t). NSR formula is based on assumed values for offsite costs, metal recovery, and metal prices. Offsite costs include transportation of concentrate, smelter treatment charges, and refining charges. Metal price for gold (Au), silver (Ag), copper (Cu), and zinc (Zn) are US$700/oz ,US$12/oz, US$2.25/lb, US$0.85/lb, and estimated metal recoveries are 50%, 40%, 92%, 83% respectively. Payable metal factors are 90.7%, 89.5%, 97%, and 85% for Au, Ag, Cu and Zn respectively.

The 2009 Niblack resource estimate is based on 139,500 feet (42,520 metres) of drilling in 174 diamond drill holes, which includes 19 underground holes completed on the Lookout zone subsequent to the September 2008 resource estimate (see technical report filed on SEDAR October 27, 2008). The resource model is based on a geology model constructed by CBG from interpretation of lithology, structure and grade boundaries. To account for folding of the deposit, the geological model was divided into multiple domains each with unique search parameters. All missing assays were assigned zero grades. The assays were capped and composited to 5 feet lengths. Metal grades were estimated in Datamine software using ordinary kriging into a 3D block model with primary dimensions of 15 x 6 x 6 feet (4.6 x 1.8 x 1.8 metres). Resources are reported at a US$50 NSR block cut-off.
