Ashburton Extends Yukon White Gold Agreement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX VENTURE:ABR)(FRANKFURT:ARB) ("Ashburton" or the "Company") announces it has negotiated an extension on its agreement to acquire a 100% interest on the River Au prospect in the Yukon Territory immediately adjoining ground held by Kinross Gold Corporation after their acquisition of Underworld Resources in the White Gold District. In consideration for a one-year extension the Company will pay the vendor 300,000 common shares.

Two phases of soil sampling by Aurora Geosciences out of Whitehorse were conducted in 2009. The second phase at the River Au prospect by the Aurora crew tripled the sampling density to 50-meter centers on lines spaced 100 meters apart in the areas of the earlier anomalies. The in-fill sampling detected several new anomalies ranging up to 95 and 150 ppb Au and expanded the anomalous area to the north and south. A trend of gold anomalies ranging from 25 to 150 ppb Au has now been detected on most of ten parallel lines across some 1100 meters of northerly slope. Individual lines have gold anomalies across as much as 150 meters of sampling, suggesting that multiple structures may be responsible for the soil anomalies.
