Riverstone Discovers New Gold Zone on Kao

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Riverstone Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RVS) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new gold zone on the Kao property in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The new discovery is located approximately 4.5 kilometres northeast of the Kao Main Zone, which returned excellent results from the Company's Reverse Circulation ("RC") drilling program in March 2007. Significant surface samples collected from the new zone returned values ranging from 1.35 g/t gold to 28.8 g/t gold. The new discovery appreciably increases the potential of the Kao property and the Company is planning an aggressive drilling program to further test both of these attractive gold zones.

The surface samples were collected from an area of artisanal gold workings that occur within a broad gold-in-soil anomaly. Samples were collected from quartz veins and mineralized wallrock over an area approximately 900 metres by 700 metres. Assays that exceed 1.0 g/t gold are reported below:



----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Type of Sample Grade (g/t gold)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Grab 1.43
Grab 1.35
Grab 13.7
Grab 28.8
Grab 1.25
Grab 5.97
Grab 1.42
Grab 2.59
Grab 1.01
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The new zone appears to have the same northerly trend as the gold zones 4.5 kilometres to the south. The Main Zone was tested in March 2007 with a RC drilling program, which confirmed the presence of multiple, parallel gold zones. Both zones are open for extension in all directions. Significant results from the drilling program were reported in News Releases dated April 4th and 16th, 2007, and are summarized below:

The Company maintains a rigorous quality control program involving the use of repeat assays, check assays at independent labs, and the use of verifiable blanks and standards from an accredited Canadian lab. All RC samples were assayed using standard fire assay with atomic absorption techniques, at the independent Abilab Burkina SARL laboratories in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, which is part of the ALS Chemex group.
