Yorbeau Resources Inc.: Follow Up on the Results of Hole no. 403

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 26, 2006) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. (the "Company")(TSX:YRB.A)is pleased to announce that it has received the final assay results for hole no. 403, being the third hole of its 5,000-meter 10-hole program aimed at testing the Larder Lake Break at depths of about 300 meters vertically below surface on its Rouyn property, located a few kilometers south of the town of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

The results are as follow:

Hole no. 403 - Section 11 200 feet east:

Zone no. 3, 'flow mineralization': 76.86 grams of gold per tonne along a core length of 0.60 meter or 2.24 oz of gold along 2.0 feet at a vertical depth of 380 meters.

This is in addition to the previously reported (press release of January 19, 2006) intersection of 12.93 grams over a core length of 8.87 meters found in carbonate rocks at vertical depth of 260 m (0.38 oz of gold along 29.1 feet).

Zone no. 3 has also been intersected in holes nos. 401 and 402 and is suggested to have good continuity along a strike length of 250 meters.

These results are believed to be highly encouraging in that this new 'flow type' gold-bearing zone has returned to date significant gold values over a strike length of 250 m. The zone is open along strike to the west and at depth.

Work is being done under the supervision of Guy Hinse, PEng, a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101. The core is sawed in halves at the Company's core shack facility located at the Augmitto mine site. One half is retained at the site for reference and the other half is sent in secure bags to Laboratoire Expert for standard 30-gram fire assay with gravity finish. Where visible gold is present in the core, the sample is analysed using the metallics method.
