MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2012) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. ("Yorbeau") (TSX:YRB.A) has initiated its 2012 drilling program with an initial focus on the Lake Gamble deposit located on the Company's Rouyn Property.

The objective of the current program is to conduct in-fill and definition drilling that will aid in the preparation of a resource estimate for the Cinderella and Lake Gamble discoveries compliant with NI 43-101. Drilling on the Cinderella deposit was completed in December and the 11,000m program planned on the Lake Gamble portion of the property was commenced in the second week of January. The Company currently anticipates completing the drilling program on the Lake Gamble deposit during the third quarter, and the resulting data will be incorporated into a NI 43-101 Technical Report for both the Cinderella and Lake Gamble deposits.

Funding for the program was provided by the Company's private placement in December which resulted in the Company raising gross proceeds of $2,440,625.

The Company's 100% controlled Rouyn Property contains four known gold deposits in the 6-km-long Augmitto-Astoria corridor situated on the western half of the property. Two of the four deposits, Astoria and Augmitto, have substantial underground infrastructure and have been the focus of NI 43-101 technical reports, the most recent being the report on Augmitto which was published in October of 2011 and which is available on SEDAR. Please refer to the news release of August 23, 2011 for details of the gold resources on Augmitto and Astoria.
