Yorbeau Engages Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. for Resource Estimate on Augmitto Deposit

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A)("Yorbeau") is pleased to announce that it has accepted a proposal from Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. to prepare a mineral resource estimate and supporting NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Augmitto Block on the Company's Rouyn Property.

The Augmitto deposit, which was the focus of much historical work by previous owners, lies at the western extremity of the Rouyn Property. Detailed compilation work by the Company over the last several months, which integrates new information on the geological structures coming from the drilling programs over the last two years, has led to a re-interpretation of historical drill data and the recognition of important controls for gold mineralization. The current drill program, which is on-going and focused on the Augmitto deposit, has been designed to include in-fill and definition drilling with a view to growing the Company's NI 43-101 compliant resources. It is anticipated that Roscoe Postle will be able to deliver the resource estimate during the month of June.

The Rouyn Property, which is located four kilometres south of the city of Rouyn-Noranda, covers a twelve kilometre stretch of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break. Over the last two years the Company's drill programs have shown the continuity of the ore hosting structures and rock types on the property for a distance of approximately six kilometres from the Augmitto deposit to the Astoria mine.

At the present time the Company's only NI 43-101 compliant resource is at the Astoria mine where there are 349,100 ounces of gold in the measured and indicated categories (2,000 ounces in the measured category and 347,100 ounces in the indicated category). Both Astoria and Augmitto benefit from the existence of extensive surface and underground infrastructure which would represent substantial savings in development cost in the event of commercial production.
