Yorbeau identifies unreported mineralization in historical holes with assays up to 9.7 g/t Au over 6.0 metres at Rouyn property
Montréal,July 23, 2014 - Yorbeau Resources Inc.(TSX: YRB.A) (the "Company" or "Yorbeau") is pleased to provide an update on the balance of the current 2014 exploration program atthe Rouyn project.
As part of a modelling exercise, 5 historical holes from a 1995 drilling program on the Astoria block were selected for additional sampling. This exercise has resulted in both the identification of new mineralization and the expansion of known historical zones. In particular, a significant new interval assaying 9.7 g/t Au over 6.0 m was identified in holeAS95-9037. This interval, which had not been sampled in 1995, has confirmed the current structural interpretation. The new mineralized intervals from the historic holes are shown below:
|Hole||From||To||Core length (m)||Au (g/t )|
The following Table 2 summarizes the results of the sampling program, incorporating the new assays to the historical assayed intervals:
|2014 Assay Results||1995 Assay Results|
|Hole||From||To||Length||g/t Au||From||To||Length||g/t Au|
True thickness is difficult to estimate as these historic holes were drilled from underground with highly variable orientations. However,the thickness typically represents 50 to 75% of core lengths.
The location of the drill holes is shown on the attached longitudinal section.
David Crevier, President and CEO commented "These latest findings combined with recent holes confirm that Astoria has significant untested potential.Hole AS-14-645 which intersected 9.1 g/t Au over 9.0 m (please see release dated July 8, 2014) opens up the deposit to the east and hole AS-14-636 which intersected 4.1 gAu/t over 5.0 m (please see release dated July 16, 2014) opens up the deposit at depth. Our more systematic approach continues to underscore the potential at the Rouyn Property. I look forward to updating shareholders as we position theCompany to unlock the potential at the Rouyn Property."

Samples were analyzed at ALS Chemex Laboratories in Sudbury, Ontario,by fire assay with atomic absorption and gravimetric finish. The sampling and assaying program was subjected to Yorbeau's QA/QC program that includes inserting blanks and gold standards in batch samples being sent to the assay laboratory.
