Kimber Announces Board Appointment, New Directions and New Vice-President, Exploration

    VANCOUVER, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Kimber Resources Inc. (AMEX:  KBX, TSX:KBR) is
pleased to announce that Gordon Cummings, President & CEO, has been appointed
to fill the vacancy on the Board created by the retirement of Robert Longe. In
addition, the Company announces that Marius Maré, P.Geo, has been appointed as
Vice-President, Exploration for the Company. Mr. Maré is a member of the
Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia
and has a B.Sc. (Hons) and an M.Sc. in Geological Sciences from the University
of Manitoba. Mr. Maré brings more than 20 years of experience as a geologist
including the management of gold and silver exploration programs in Mexico,
Canada and Tanzania.
    Mr. Cummings, the newly appointed CEO, laid out his vision for Kimber and
the prospects for its Monterde gold-silver project located in the prolific
Sierra Madre gold-silver belt of Mexico. "I look forward to working with the
Kimber Board as CEO and a fellow Director. The Board is completely aligned in
the view that Kimber must aggressively step up the level of exploration
activity at our exciting Monterde project. I believe there is real potential
to find significant additional gold and silver resources at Monterde,
especially in the vicinity of the Carmen deposit, where we are advancing our
geologic model and metallurgical studies. We also intend to increase
shareholder value by expanding our exploration efforts to include the large
and prospective land holdings we have in the Sierra Madre and elsewhere in
Mexico. I am very pleased to welcome Marius Maré as Vice-President,
Exploration. Marius' technical ability and experience, particularly with
epithermal gold-silver systems in the Sierra Madre, will be a huge asset to
the Company in spearheading our exploration focus."
    Mr. Maré, Vice-President, Exploration commented, "I have visited the
Monterde property within the last few weeks and was impressed by the Monterde
camp and the quality and experience of the Mexican geologic team currently
being assembled. There is clearly significant exploration potential at
Monterde that warrants evaluation. From my initial review, I am looking
forward to investigating the underground potential of Carmen, where there is
potential for the discovery and definition of high grade resources in the
same, but largely untested, stratigraphy hosting other major deposits in the
area. I am excited to be joining the Kimber team at this time and look forward
to seeing the full potential of our properties realized."

    Kimber owns mineral concessions covering approximately 32,000 hectares in
the prospective Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, including the Company's
Monterde property where three gold-silver deposits have already been
identified, including the Carmen deposit. The Carmen deposit, which has been
extensively drilled, 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. In
addition, the Company has a 100% interest in the mineral concessions of its
Pericones property, a 6300 hectare property targeted for silver, located
approximately 100 kilometres southwest of Mexico City.
