Everton and Linear Define a New Gold-Copper Mineralized Zone in the La Lechoza Corridor on the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo Project, DR-Drilling to Resume in Mid-November

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2009) - Everton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EVR)(FRANKFURT:ERV)("Everton" or the "Company") and Linear Gold Corp. (TSX:LRR) ("Linear") are pleased to announce the discovery of the Central Gossan gold-copper Showing located between the La Lechoza and the La Lechoza West prospects ("La Lechoza Corridor") in the central part of the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo Project in the Dominican Republic. Drilling will resume in mid-November.

Follow-up on soil anomalies within the La Lechoza Corridor identified this new undocumented Central Gossan gold-copper Showing. Recent rock and soil auger sampling in this Corridor has yielded values up to 5.8 g/t gold and 0.48% copper in rock samples, and up to 396 ppb gold, 1,475 ppm copper and 2,970 ppm zinc in different soil samples within the Central Gossan gold-copper Showing. The samples were collected on a grid that extends for more than 200 meters in length and over 40 meters wide. Additional assays are pending.

The next drill phase, totalling 2,000 meters, is part of the 8,000-meter drill program announced by the partners in June 2009. Approximately 1,000 meters, for eight to ten holes, will test the new Central Gossan gold-copper Showing and other mineralized occurrences near the La Lechoza Prospect. Drilling completed in this area by Linear in 2005 returned 22m containing 1.0% copper and 0.3 g/t gold, including a one-meter massive sulphide zone containing 10.25% copper and 5.71 g/t gold in Hole LE-08. Moreover, the 2007 Everton-Linear trenching program at La Lechoza returned grades up to 6.65 g/t gold and 18.8 g/t silver over 22m, including 22.1 g/t gold and 48.6 g/t silver over 4m (press release September 18, 2007). This drill phase will also follow up on other selected targets on the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo Property adjacent on the western and northern borders of the Pueblo Viejo Mine's Montenegro pit. Everton has an option to acquire up to 65% on the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo Project.

The La Lechoza Corridor encompasses the geological characteristics and a metal association suite typical to that of an exhalative volcanogenic polymetallic massive sulphide system ("VMS") structurally controlled along the Corridor. Multiple mineralized prospects and showings occur along this Corridor, mostly as centimeter- to meter-scale sized boulders, sub-outcrops and outcrops of massive argillic and siliceous gossans, silicified basaltic andesites and ferruginous red jasper, which locally contains fresh sulphides and minor barite. The mineralization is associated to a NW-SE-trending shearing structure that coincides with anomalous airborne electromagnetic conductors outlined during the helicopter-born geophysical survey ("HEM") completed in 2007. A zone of disseminated and stockwork-style mineralization on surface appears to be a feeder system for the sulphide mineralization.

Everton is well funded and actively exploring in the Dominican Republic adjacent to the US$2.7 billion Pueblo Viejo project, currently being developed by the world's largest gold mining company, Barrick Gold Corporation (60%) (NYSE/TSX:ABX) in partnership with Goldcorp (40%) ("Goldcorp") (NYSE:GG, TSX:G). Pueblo Viejo is estimated to contain 22.4 million ounces of gold, 455 million pounds of copper and 131.3 million ounces of silver. Everton recently acquired Hays Lake Gold Inc., a private company with various options to acquire a 38 km2 consolidated land package located in the Shoal Lake area, near Kenora, Ontario. The Shoal Lake Gold Project is comprised of two significant high grade gold deposits: Duport and Cedar Island. Everton is also exploring in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec where the Company has amassed one of the largest land claims adjacent to Goldcorp's Eleonore gold deposit, which currently hosts an estimated mineral resource of 5.3 million ounces of gold.
