Kimber increases concessions on Pericones and Setago and grants stock options

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Kimber Resources Inc. (AMEX:  KBX, TSX:KBR)
announces that it has received the Pericones concession title, Ampliacion La
Guera. As a result of this grant, the total size of the Pericones property has
almost doubled to a total size of 11,890 hectares. In addition, Kimber has
been advised that two concessions, adjoining Kimber's Setago property, have
been issued to Kimber by the Mexican government. Kimber is currently awaiting
receipt of the title documents. These new concessions will more than triple
the total land package at Setago to approximately 10,000 hectares.
    "The additional concessions granted to Kimber at Pericones and Setago
substantially increases our exploration holdings in two prospective areas,"
said Gordon Cummings, President and CEO of Kimber Resources. "These new
concessions greatly enhance the size of two of our existing Mexican
properties: Setago, 24 kilometres to the west of Monterde, and in the heart of
the prolific Sierra Madre gold-silver belt, and, Pericones, in the vicinity of
a number of significant silver-gold properties south west of Mexico City."
    Kimber also advises that, subject to regulatory approval, it has granted
a total of 500,000 stock options under the Company's 2007 Stock Option Plan to
directors and officers of the Company at an exercise price of $0.79 per share.

    About Kimber

    With the addition of the new Setago concessions Kimber will own 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, 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 11,890
hectare property targeted for silver, located approximately 100 kilometres
southwest of Mexico City.
