    About Kimber

    Kimber owns mineral concessions covering in excess of 39,000 hectares in
the prospective Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, including the Company's
Monterde property, where three gold-silver mineral resources have already been
defined. The most advanced of these, the Carmen deposit, has been extensively
drilled and is currently undergoing detailed geologic modeling in order to
evaluate the potential for a combined open pit and underground mining
operation based on current resources. In addition, the Company has a 100%
interest in the mineral concessions of its Pericones property, an 11,890
hectare property targeted for silver, located approximately 100 kilometres
southwest of Mexico City.
