MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) - Yorbeau Resources Inc. ("Yorbeau"')(TSX:YRB.A) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first two drill holes of a 10,000 m drilling program at the Augmitto sector of its Rouyn property, Quebec. The program for the first several months of the year will be largely focused on the Augmitto deposit in order to permit completion of a NI 43-101compliant resource calculation during mid-June. The Augmitto deposit is at the extreme western end of the Rouyn property that covers a 12 km strike length along the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break.

Although assays are pending, both holes penetrated the target zones identified during 2010's core re-logging and data compilation, which are the hanging-wall zone, Upper and Lower Piché zones, and footwall zone. Visible gold has been observed in several intercepts together with other characteristics of the gold zones, such as the occurrence of brown tourmaline, arsenopyrite, quartz veining and strong silicification.

Beschefer: Four drill holes totaling 377 metres were completed on this property during February, 2011. The program was aborted because of technical problems in deep overburden combined with an unusual warm-up which softened the ground and caused the drill rig to become unstable and unsafe to operate. Sufficient work was completed that the entire Beschefer land position remains in good standing. The Beschefer property covers the immediate eastern extension of the same stratigraphic package that hosts the Billiton B-26 copper-gold prospect.
