Consolidated Beacon Resources Ltd. to Hold AGM

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 05/29/09 -- Consolidated Beacon Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: KBC) announces that at its extraordinary general meeting, scheduled for June 26, 2009 (the "Meeting"), shareholders will be asked to consider to approve a consolidation of the Company's common shares on the basis of one (1) post-consolidated share for up to thirty (30) pre-consolidated shares (the "Consolidation"). If the Consolidation is approved by a special majority of shareholders at the Meeting, being two-thirds of the shareholders voting in person at the Meeting or by proxy, the directors will have the sole discretion to implement the Consolidation, provided that the consolidation ratio (the "Consolidation Ratio") is no more than one (1) post-consolidated share for up to thirty (30) pre-consolidated shares, subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

As of the Record Date for the Meeting and currently, the Company has 75,831,649 issued and outstanding common shares. If the Consolidation were conducted on a thirty (30) for one (1) basis, the Company would have approximately 2,527,721 shares outstanding following the Consolidation. The exact number of post-consolidated shares will vary depending on the treatment of fractional shares, which will occur when each shareholder's holdings in the Company are consolidated. Outstanding stock options and warrants will also be adjusted by the Consolidation Ratio and the respective exercise prices of outstanding stock options and warrants will be adjusted accordingly. At the Meeting, the Company will also be seeking disinterested shareholder approval for the re-pricing (on a post-consolidation basis) of certain stock options granted to insiders of the Company.

Management of the Company believes that further equity financing is required in order for the Company to fund its current working capital requirements and for future business purposes. It is management's opinion that the Company's existing issued and outstanding share capital is not conducive to completing such additional equity financing and that the Consolidation is required in order to attract new equity investment in the Company.

Details of the Consolidation are contained in the Company's information circular, which will be mailed to shareholders on or before June 1, 2009 and will be filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
