Yoquivo Project Yields Average Grades of 1.25g/t Gold and 72 g/t Silver From Phase 1 Surface Sampling

RICHMOND HILL, ON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2007 -- Konigsberg Corporation (OTCBB: KGBC), (FRANKFURT: F2C) ("Konigsberg" or the "Company") has been informed by operator West Timmins Mining Inc. (TSX: WTM) that it has received extremely encouraging results from its Phase 1 surface sampling program on the Yoquivo Gold-Silver Property in Chihuahua State, Mexico.

The recently completed Phase 1 surface sampling program included a total of 67 grab and chip samples collected from 3 mineralization trends on the Project, return average grades of 1.25 g/t Gold and 72 g/t Silver. Individual sample results ranged from a low of 0.02 g/t Gold and 0.3 g/t Silver to a high of 9.53 g/t Gold and 1,200 g/t Silver.

"The Phase 1 surface sampling results from Yoquivo indicate the potential of the Project to host both near surface, bulk mine-able as well as significantly higher grade vein/breccia styles of gold-silver mineralization," said Darin Wagner, President, West Timmins Mining. "The gold-silver mineralization at Yoquivo is similar in grade and character to the mine at the nearby Ocampo Deposit which reports reserve grades of 1.19 g/t Gold and 55g/t Silver and which has recently entered into production."

The Phase 1 surface sampling program concentrated on the northern portion of the Yoquivo Project area where recent geological mapping has identified a broad zone of sheeted quartz veining and breccia zones in the La Nina (Central-North) area. Twenty-eight samples collected over 700x225 m area in the La Nina (Central-North) area returned average grades of 1.76 g/t Gold and 80.35 g/t Silver (Table 1).

Vertical Zoning is evident within the Yoquivo epithermal system with just the uppermost levels of the precious metal zone being exposed at the highest topographic levels of the Property (El Dollar - West Trend). A very significant increase in silver and overall precious metal content is observed in exposure of progressively deeper levels of the epithermal system at lower elevations in the Dolores (East Trend) area.

The Companies have also been advised by Aeroquest International Limited that the airborne magnetic and electromagnetic survey of the Yoquivo Property has been completed. Final results of the survey should be received during the next two to three weeks.
