About Aton Resources Inc.:

Aton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AAN) is in the business of exploring for and developing potentially economic gold deposits in the Central Eastern Desert of Egypt in the Arabian Nubian Shield ("ANS"). The Company's 100%-owned concessions, Abu Marawat and Fatiri, between them cover 2,772 km2 of underexplored ground. Evidence of gold and copper mining in the concessions dates the many surface workings to pre-historic (Bronze Age) and Old Kingdom (Pharaonic), through Ptolemaic, Roman, Early Arab times and into the European Era of the early to mid-20th Century. Three historic gold mines occur within the two concessions: British miners produced gold at Sir Bakis, Semna and Abu Zawal into the 1950s.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
