Kimber files Form F-3 shelf registration statement for future financings in the United States



    VANCOUVER, June 4 /CNW/ - Kimber Resources Inc. (AMEX:  KBX, TSX:KBR) has
today filed a Form F-3 registration statement with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission. This filing, when it becomes effective,
will allow the Company to make offerings of common shares (the "Equity
Securities") up to an aggregate initial offering price of US$20,000,000 in the
United States for an indefinite period from the time the registration
statement becomes effective. Equity securities may be offered in amounts, at
prices and on terms to be determined based on market conditions at the time of
sale and set forth in an accompanying shelf registration supplement. The net
proceeds from the sale of the Equity Securities will be used for exploration
of the Company's Monterde, Pericones and Setago properties, advancement of the
Carmen deposit and for general corporate purposes, including funding potential
future acquisitions and capital expenditures. The Equity Securities may not be
sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration
statement becomes effective. This news release shall not constitute an offer
to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of
the Equity Securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale
would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the
securities laws of any such state.

    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 deposits have already been
identified. 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. Further, reconnaissance exploration
carried out in 2007 has identified a number of new exploration targets on
Kimber's properties in the Sierra Madre. 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.
