    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 100% owned and free of
royalties. On the Monterde property, the Company has two principal objectives:
to advance the Carmen deposit to feasibility and to find and develop
additional mineral resources within the Monterde property. The Carmen deposit,
an underground mine in the 1930's and a typical low sulphidation epithermal
system, is oxidized and hosts the majority of the resources on Monterde: 1.356
million gold-equivalent ounces in Measured & Indicated and 0.263 million in
Inferred. Total resources on the Monterde property are 1.515 million
gold-equivalent ounces in Measured & Indicated and 0.422 million in Inferred.
An exploration program directed at additional resources has identified two
drill targets. Until the commencement of the exploration program, less than 5%
of the 28,000 hectare property had been explored by modern methods. The Setago
property covers an epithermal system some 24 kilometres west of Monterde. The
Pericones property contains wide-spread silver mineralization with promising
grades within old workings and elsewhere.
