Everton Starts Summer Work Program on Opinaca and Wildcat Projects in the James Bay Region of Quebec

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 30, 2006) - Everton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EVR) is pleased to announce that the 2006 summer work program has started on its Opinaca and Wildcat projects, as well as on six other projects situated in the James Bay region of Quebec.

The work on the Opinaca property will be comprised of two phases, both of which will be done simultaneously. The first phase of work will consist of follow-up rock and channel sampling on the 1.7 km-long gold bearing trend, the results of which ranged up to 50.9 g/t gold on outcrops. The ground geophysical work, by induced polarization, done this past winter on the gold bearing trend showed good correlation between the high gold values and the geophysical anomalies. It also showed the possibility that the gold bearing corridor might be extended to a length of 3.4 km. The goal of this first phase of work is to generate targets for drilling scheduled to begin in July 2006.

The second phase will consist of a systematic prospecting follow-up and till and soil sampling on lake-bottom anomalies, as well as other mineralized indicators on the following projects: Opinaca, Wildcat, Pine Hill, Sakami, Star Lake, Conviac, Wapamisk and Eastmain.

The work will be done by helicopter support from the base camp located on the Opinaca project. Everton has an option to acquire up to 65% interest in the Opinaca project from Azimut Exploration Inc., but holds 100% interest in the other above mentioned projects.
