    After two years with Kimber, Mr. Darren Klinck, Vice President of
Corporate and Investor Relations has accepted a position with an Australian
company. Mr. Klinck has been a key member of Kimber's staff and made a
substantial contribution to the success of the Company and its recognition
among investors. We thank him for his dedicated and effective work and we wish
him well in his new appointment. To aid with the transition, Mr. Klinck has
agreed to provide assistance informally with handover to his replacement and a
new CEO, once they are appointed.
    In accordance with Kimber's policy of providing annual grants of
incentive options to employees, the Company has granted 550,000 options to
directors, officers and staff of the Company at an exercise price equal to the

    About Kimber

    Kimber Resources Inc. holds a 100% interest in the Monterde and Setago
properties located in the Sierra Madre of northern Mexico as well as the
6300 hectare Pericones property, which is located about 100 kilometres
southwest of Mexico City in Estado de Mexico. All projects are free of
royalties. On the Monterde property, the Company has two principal objectives:
to find and develop additional mineral resources & to advance the Carmen
deposit to feasibility. The Carmen deposit, an underground mine in the 1930's,
is a typical low sulphidation epithermal system, is oxidized and hosts the
majority of the resources on Monterde. As at the data cutoff (February 15,
2006) for the most recent resource estimate, total mineral resources from
three deposits at Monterde are 23.6 million tonnes containing 648,000 oz of
gold and 33 million oz of silver in Measured, 9.9 million tonnes containing
250,000 oz of gold and 8 million oz of silver in Indicated, and 7.1 million
tonnes containing 180,000 oz of gold and 5 million oz of silver in the
Inferred category. Approximately 120 holes have been drilled at Monterde since
this estimate was released. A target generation program directed at
identifying additional epithermal systems is underway on the property. Until
the commencement of this program, less than 5% of the 28,000 hectare property
had been explored by modern methods. The Setago property covers an epithermal
system some 30 kilometres west of Monterde. The recently announced Pericones
property contains wide-spread silver mineralization. A first pass sampling
program reported two-metre chip samples of up to 420 g/t Ag from old workings
and up to 332 g/t Ag from surface.
