Yorbeau Cuts 15.84 Grams Over 2.57 Meters

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - April 4, 2006) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. ("Yorbeau" or the "Company") (TSX:YRB.A) has recently completed drill hole no. 409 on the Lake Gamble block of its Rouyn property. The purpose of this hole was to test the Larder Lake Break at a vertical depth between 600 to 700 meters below surface.

The hole intersected in carbonate rocks a well defined quartz stockwork zone showing several specks of visible gold, and further down hole, the no. 4 gold-bearing horizon.

Assays reported are only those of the carbonate zone. Further assays are awaited for the no. 4 zone.

From 647.66 to 650.23 meters, (625 m vertical) hole no. 409 returned 15.84 grams of gold per tonne over a core length of 2.57 meters (0.462 oz/tc over 8.43 feet). True width is approximately from 80 to 90% of core length.

The zones are open both along strike and at depth.

Management is extremely pleased with the above results as they identify an entirely new area of gold-bearing carbonate rocks. Hole 409 is located on section 19 000 E in an area where the only previous work was shallow drilling completed in 1984. The hole is located 7 400 feet east of holes 401 to 403 where very significant gold values were previously intersected by hole no. 403 in both carbonate rocks, 12.93 g/T along 8.87 meters, and lower 'flow' type mineralization, 76.86 g/T along 0.60 meters, as reported in previous press releases.

The second phase of the current drilling program started with hole no 409 and is continuing.

Yorbeau's Rouyn property straddles the Larder Lake Break along a distance of 12 kilometers and is located just a few kilometers south of the Town of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

Work is being done under the supervision of G. Hinse, PEng, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101. The core is sawed in halves at the Company's core shack facility at the Augmitto mine site. One half of the core is retained at the site for reference and the other half is sent in secure bags to Laboratoire Expert to be analyzed, if visible gold is present, by the metallics method.
