Vancouver, BC -- Aben Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ABN) (Frankfurt: E2L) (OTC Pink: ABNAF) (the "Company") announces that it has cancelled its Property Option Agreement dated March 7, 2011 with 0890763 BC Ltd. wherein Aben had been granted an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Rude Creek Property which consisted of 127 square kilometres located in the Dawson Range of the Yukon Territories.
The Company has also cancelled its Property Option Agreement dated February 15, 2011 with Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. wherein Aben had been granted an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Rusty Springs Property, covering approximately 1100 hectares located in the district of Dawson, Western Yukon.
The Company feels that under the current difficult market conditions further property and option expenditures are not warranted on the properties as Aben intends to focus on its 100% owned Justin Gold Project in the Yukon and its 40% interest in the Mann Lake Uranium Project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan.
