SAO PAULO, BRAZIL--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2008) - RiverRun Resources Inc. (PINK SHEETS:RRRO) announces the execution of a services contract with Logistica y Servicios Aluviales San Lorenzo SAC ("San Lorenzo") to develop the company's 79 km2 of mining properties in the Gold Sands district of northeastern Peru. The company has the option to acquire up to 100% of the mineral rights on terms previously disclosed.

RiverRun has contracted San Lorenzo, a Peruvian Service company to supply contract services with respect to RiverRun's Gold Sands project in northeastern Peru. San Lorenzo is to provide complete mining services which include logistics and infrastructure in the project area including sourcing and supplying personnel, drilling equipment, dredges, mining equipment, logistics, exploration management, property camp, development office, administration support, exploration planning, program management, mapping, logging, drilling, a field laboratory, data compilation, data processing, interpretation of data, preparation of reports, assessment of exploration techniques, evaluation of programs, training of staff and coordination of field trips.

We intend to advance our Gold Sands exploration efforts immediately upon the completion and approval of a proposed 12-month work program by San Lorenzo and the necessary initial project financing has been secured."

San Lorenzo has begun consulting with the people and communities in the area of Peru that may be affected by RiverRun's proposed mining activities to help to identify ways to minimize the impact on the environment. San Lorenzo has engaged The Stocker Group, an international consulting firm with offices in Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Panama and Switzerland to anticipate potential issues before they arise and to work together with the local and federal communities to manage the environmental, political and social risks associated with developing the Gold Sands project.

In addition to completing an Environmental Impact Assessment, the Stocker Group has begun to carry out a Social Impact Assessment. This will acknowledge the interests of all stakeholders including the inhabitants who live in the district. It will determine relationships with the biophysical environment, historical background, population, political and social resources including the distribution of power and authority, local culture and attitudes toward the proposed project and any needs they may have including programs, reforestation, agricultural projects, job creation, school-building /education, public infrastructure and medical care.

About RiverRun Resources

RiverRun Resources is committed to building long-term shareholder value by actively exploring and developing a portfolio of strategically selected gold properties within the Amazon Gold Sands district of Northeastern Peru. Peru is the world's fifth largest gold producer and gold has been recovered from rivers coming down from the Andes since well before 1000 BC. Today, this cultural affinity for gold is in evidence in the friendliness with which Peruvian officials and citizens approach gold mining operations throughout the country. Gold mining is a way of life and RiverRun Resources' mission within this context furthers Peru's exploration-focused culture while potentially adding significant inventory to Peru's plentiful resource base.
