Balmoral Commences Geophysical Program at Detour East

(Vancouver, May 2, 2011) Balmoral Resources Ltd. ("Balmoral" or the "Company") (TSXV: BAR) announced today that it has commenced a ground based geophysical program on its Detour East Property located in west-central Quebec. The Detour East Property covers a 20 kilometre long stretch of the Detour/Sunday Lake Deformation Zone which hosts the Abitibi's largest undeveloped gold deposit -- the Detour Gold deposit - on an adjacent property in Ontario. Balmoral's Martiniere West high-grade gold zone is located 25 kilometres to the east of the Detour East Property along the same Detour Gold Trend.

The Induced Polarization (I.P.) program will cover a 9.25 kilometre long stretch of the Detour/Sunday Lake Deformation Zone extending eastward from the Ontario-Quebec border. The current geophysical program will supplement existing airborne and ground geophysical coverage and aid in the selection of drill targets for a planned summer/fall drill program at Detour East. Balmoral has an option to earn up to a 60% interest in the Detour East Property from Radisson Mining Resources Inc.

Mr. Darin Wagner (P.Geo.), President and CEO of the Company, is the non-independent qualified person for the technical disclosure contained in this news release. Mr. Wagner is supervising the work programs on the Detour East Property and has conducted site examinations of the property.
