Yorbeau Initiates 2011 Drilling Program

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2011) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. ("Yorbeau"')(TSX:YRB.A) is pleased to announce that it has initiated its 2011 drilling campaign. The program for the first several months of the year will be largely focused on the Augmitto deposit in order to permit the completion of a resources calculation compliant with NI 43-101. 

At the Augmitto deposit, which is located at the western end of the Company's Rouyn property, the program will include some in-fill and definition drilling as well as the testing of deeper targets. These targets have been identified following the recognition of important controls for gold mineralization based on the recent re-interpretation of historical drilling and structural data. 

Yorbeau plans to drill about 10,000 metres of NQ core on the Augmitto and Cinderella portions of its Rouyn property during the first six months of 2011, initially with one drill rig which will be joined by a second rig in the coming weeks. 

The current program also comprises three holes totalling 750 metres of drilling on the Beschefer property which covers the immediate eastern extension of the same stratigraphic package that hosts the Billiton B-26 copper-gold prospect. The Beschefer property, which is composed of 257 mining claims covering an area of approximately 4,000 hectares in the Beschefer Township, is prospective for gold and base metals and is located about 15 km south east of the formerly producing Selbaie Mine. Yorbeau owns a 100% interest in 120 of these claims and an 80% interest in the remaining 137 claims.

The qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 is Laurent Hallé, P.Geo., who has reviewed and approved the content of this release.
