Yorbeau Holds Annual General Meeting

20,000 m drill program is underway on strong anomalies identified by IP survey

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) today hosted its Annual Shareholders Meeting at the Omni Hotel in Montreal. Chairman David Crevier emphasized the new direction the Company is taking in terms of exploration on its promising 12-km-long Rouyn property straddling the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break (CLLB).

Mr. Crevier also outlined the achievements of past President and Director Georges Bodnar and the valued expertise brought by recently nominated Board member Gerald Riverin. The Board of Directors was elected by shareholders and includes Dr. Louis R. Bernier, Georges Bodnar, David Crevier, Richard J. Renaud, Philip Renaud, Dr. Gerald Riverin and Dr. Thomas L. Robyn.

The Company initiated a structural study of strategic sectors on the Rouyn property over the last few months. Ground geophysical surveys (magnetic and induced polarization-resistivity) were conducted to identify near-surface high-priority drill targets (less than 100m depth) along the 90% portion of the CLLB on the Company's Rouyn property that has never been explored in detail.

"We are very excited about the results, as a high number of strong anomalies were identified by the survey", said Dr. Thomas L. Robyn, President and CEO. "We have identified multiple drill targets that could be related to ore zones that we expect will plunge to significant depths", he added.

The objective of the IP survey was to locate areas that exhibit the geophysical characteristics associated with major gold deposits elsewhere along the CLLB. The survey generated 39 anomalies identified as "prospecting anomalies" and 19 identified as "drilling anomalies". These data were combined with the results of the Company's ground magnetic survey, where certain magnetic lows indicate alteration of the bedrock, to select high-priority targets for a 20,000 m drilling campaign which is already underway.

The Annual General Meeting presentation will be available on the corporate web site at www.yorbeauresources.com.
