Yorbeau Intercepts 49.98 Grams Au Over 4.3 Meters

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 25, 2006) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. (TSX:YRB.A) is pleased to provide the following update on its current drilling program which is continuing at the Company's Rouyn Property, on the Augmitto and Cinderella Blocks.

The first partial results from hole 06-S-413 are as follows:

FROM (m) TO (m) LENGTH(1)(m) Au g/t
517.10 517.90 0.80 40.14
517.90 518.40 0.50 1.8
518.40 519.20 0.80 0.97
519.20 520.30 1.10 90.66
520.30 521.40 1.10 74.01

(1) Length along core axis

Without cut-off, the section between 517.10 and 521.40 meters has returned a grade of 49.98 g/t Au over 4.30 meters, or 1.47 oz/t Au over 14.11 feet.

These samples were analyzed using the metallic sieve method.

The objective of this drilling program is to intercept, at depth, the extension of gold bearing structures (the Upper, Intermediate and Lower Zones) of the former Augmitto mine between levels 8,300 and 7,900 (between 490 and 615 vertical meters).

Hole 06-S-413 is located on section 111+00E and at station 41+95S. Its orientation was 200 degrees, with an inclination of -85 degrees and has ended at the 783 meter level.

This hole has intersected the Cadillac-Larder-Lake Break deformation corridor in which the main gold bearing structures are located.

The geological setting is a group of volcano-sedimentary rocks dominated by basaltic and ultramafic flows, pyroclastics/sedimentary rocks and diorite intrusions. This sequence is intercalated within the Temiskaming Group sediments and is more or less deformed (schists) along this major regional structure. The dominant alteration is characterized by the presence of bands rich in fuschite, carbonates, chlorite, talc, albite and tourmaline.

The gold bearing structures are associated with these different types of hydrothermal alteration. Based on our interpretation, the inclination of these zones is approximately 70 degrees north.

Hole 06-S-413 has intersected the volcanic group, between 484.93 and 616.76 meters, the center of which is located at approximately 540 vertical meters from the surface. This volcano-sedimentary sequence has an estimated true width of approximately 100 meters.

Between 506.38 and 521.40 meters, hole 06-S-413 has intersected a group of brown quartz-tourmaline veins which are located in basalt, ultramafite or diorite. All rocks are altered (carbonization and albitization). The veins and veinlets from this stockwork system vary in width from 1 mm to 10 cm and are laid out between 5 degrees and 45 degrees in relation to the core axis. The estimated true width of this gold bearing structure is approximately 10 meters.

In this stockwork, we have intersected two (2) quartz-tourmaline veins with numerous occurrences of visible gold. The principal vein is located between 519.20 and 521.40 meters, is between 1 and 6 cm wide, and is laid out between 0 degrees and 15 degrees in relation to the core axis. In this vein, we have counted approximately 40 spots of visible gold.

Other results will be forthcoming to complete the interpretation of this drill hole.

Other drill holes are being carried out to verify the extensions of this gold bearing structure, at 200 feet to the east and to the west of hole 06-S-413.

The qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 is Denis Tremblay, geological engineer. Samples were analyzed at Laboratoire Expert at Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.
