Tres-Or Extends New Kimberlite Breccia Discovery in Quebec

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 18) –

Attention Business Editors:

Tres-Or Resources Ltd. ("Tres-Or" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:TRS) has extended our new discovery of kimberlite in Quebec, which we originally reported in a news release dated June 13, 2008. The second drill hole intersected kimberlite breccia from beneath overburden at 45 m (32 m vertical) to 130 m (81 m vertical), at an inclination of 45 degrees. At 130 m, the drill hole entered metasedimentary country rock until the end of the hole at 147 m. It was drilled from the north, and thus the kimberlite-metasediment contact at 130 m defines the southern wall of the body, which appears to be pipe-like in shape. Like the discovery hole, this second drill hole entered kimberlite directly from overburden, and thus the north boundary of the kimberlite remains open.

The intersected rock is interpreted as serpentine and calcite kimberlite carrying visually identified pyrope garnet, chrome diopside, phlogopite, and mantle peridotite xenoliths, as well as abundant limestone xenoliths (most less than 10 cm across), some of which carry fossils.

A third drill hole has begun in the center of the body, drilling vertically to a target depth of 250 m in order to determine whether different kimberlite phases may be encountered at depth.

Following completion of this vertical drill test, a second target of similar geophysical character will be tested approximately 5 km to the southwest. Kimberlite from each phase identified in the detail core logging from the first three drill holes will be tested for microdiamonds and indicator mineral chemistry, with results reported when available later this summer.

Diamond Discoveries (Canada) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary or Diamond Discoveries International Corp., has a Letter of Intent agreement to earn up to a 50% interest in certain of the Notre Dame du Nord, Quebec properties by spending a total of $1,500,000 in exploration. Tres-Or is the project Operator.

Harrison Cookenboo, Ph.D, P.Geo. a consulting geologist and a qualified person by the standards of National Instrument 43-101, has examined the drill core in the field and reviewed the contents of this news release. Dr. Cookenboo is responsible for the design and the implementation of the field programs.
