Orphan Boy Resources Inc.: Coombes Court Motion Defeated

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 17, 2005) - Orphan Boy Resources Inc. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ORS) reports on the following developments:

The Corporation is pleased to announce that it was successful in defeating a motion filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia by Ronald A. Coombes on behalf of a dissident group (the "Coombes Group") seeking various remedies under the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia). The motion by the Coombes Group was dismissed by the Court for a failure to follow the mandatory provisions set out in the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia).

As a result, the meeting called by the Coombes Group (the "Dissident Meeting") is not in compliance with the notice requirements set forth in the Corporation's articles and the statutory requirements prescribed by the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and the Securities Act (British Columbia).

The dismissal of Mr. Coombes' motion by the Supreme Court of British Columbia lends further support to the Corporation's position that the Dissident Meeting called by the Coombes Group for December 2, 2005 was invalidly and improperly called. The Corporation maintains that the only validly called meeting is the one set by the Corporation and scheduled for January 12, 2006 with a record date of December 8, 2005. The Corporation expects a conclusive resolution to this matter very shortly.

The Corporation is also pleased to announce that the British Columbia Securities Commission, after submissions by the Corporation, removed certain misleading press releases filed by the Coombes Group on the Corporation's SEDAR profile.

On behalf of the Special Committee

David Martin-Smith, President, CEO & Director
