Yorbeau Intercepts 14.00 Grams Gold per Tonne Over 6.7 M (0.408 Ounces Gold per Ton Over 21.98 Feet) in Drilling on the Augmitto Block

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2007) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) is pleased to provide the following update on its recently initiated 2007-2008 drilling program which is being carried out on the Augmitto, Cinderella, and Lac Gamble Blocks of the Company's Rouyn Property.

Hole 07-S-421 is located on section 5325E and is the second hole for which results have been obtained in the current drilling program. The most promising section of this hole has returned a weighted average grade of 14.00 g/t Au over 6.7 meters at a core depth of 18.0 to 24.7 meters. Visible gold is observed in quartz-carbonate-tourmaline veinlets in carbonatized and silicified ultramafic rocks (green carbonate ore). Disseminated sulfides (pyrite and arsenopyrite) are locally observed in the mineralized zone.

Detailed results for hole 07-S-421 are as follows:

(i) Length along core axis


Of great interest is the fact that Hole 07-S-421 is located in an area of the lower B zone where the historical resources calculation attributed an historical weighted grade of 0.134 oz/t over 12 feet (9.2 g/t over 3.66 m).

Hole 07-S-422, the third hole in the program and which is on the same section as hole 07-S-421, also intersected the lower zone B in green carbonate ore and returned a weighted average grade of 4.65 g/t Au over 6.3 m at a core depth of 90 to 98.2 meters, including a 1.7 m section along core axis averaging 7.54 g/t from 94.6 meters to 96.3 meters.

Detailed results for hole 07-S-422 are as follows:

The results reported in this press release are from the first phase of a minimum of 5,000 meters of definition drilling on the Augmitto Block intended to validate gold grades. A drilling exploration campaign consisting of 10,000 meters will follow to target new gold structures and to demonstrate the continuity laterally and at depth of the mineralized zones comprising the Augmitto historical resources.

To date a total of 25 definition holes have been drilled. We look forward to reporting additional results on these and future holes as assays results are received.

The qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 is Paul Blanchet, geological engineer. Samples were analyzed at Laboratoire Expert at Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec using the metallics method.
