Everton and GlobeStar Drill New Mineralized Zone at Cuance, Dominican Republic

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 3, 2008) - Everton Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EVR) (FRANKFURT:ERV) ("Everton") and Globestar Mining Inc. (TSX:GMI) ("Globestar") are pleased to announce the completion of a nine-hole drill program totalling 1,022 meters on the Cuance concession in the central Dominican Republic. To date, partial results have been received including 15 m @ 1.22 g/t Au, 2.84 g/t Ag, 0.35% Cu and 2.42% Zn (hole CUA-04) and 3.50 m @ 2.44 g/t Au, 8.20 g/t Ag, 1.37% Cu and 0.51% Zn (hole CUA-02). This drill program was located 2.5 kilometers south of Las Tres Bocas Target, located on the Loma el Mate concession (50% partnership with Linear Gold (LRR:TSX)), where 10.58 meters of 2.96 g/t Au, 104.91 g/t Ag, 2.03% Cu and 9.41% Zn was intersected in hole TBM-07.

The drill program was designed to test several soil and rock anomalies obtained from a regional soil geochemistry and mapping program and a subsequent trenching program. The trenches returned values of 1.07 g/t gold over 22 meters in oxidized material (press release of 12/4/2007). This property is located in the same VMS district as the Cerro de Maimon deposit (12 km to the West), currently being developed by Globestar Mining Corp.

The drill program encountered pervasive altered sericite-epidote-chlorite schists and disseminated and stockwork-type mineralization of pyrite-chalcopyrite-covellite-sphalerite with local secondary enrichments of chalcocite-covellite with up to 4.4% Cu (Zone I in CUA-02). Alteration assemblage includes quartz-sericite-chlorite-pyrophylite. Hole CUA-02 bottomed in mineralized rocks at 153 m.

Everton and its partner Globestar are scheduled to commence shortly an induced polarization (IP) program in the northern portion of the Cuance concession, immediately north of the current drill program area and south of the Las Tres Bocas Target, located on the Loma el Mate concession (50% partnership with Linear Gold (TSX:LRR)), where 10.58 meters of 2.96 g/t Au, 104.91 g/t Ag, 2.03% Cu and 9.41% Zn was intersected in hole TBM-07.

The samples were crushed and sieved at the Falcondo laboratory facilities (Xstrata Nickel) in Bonao, Dominican Republic and assayed by ALS Chemex in Vancouver, BC. Rock standards and blank samples were also included for assay.

In other news, a four drill-hole program has recently been completed at the Jobo Claro concession (100% Everton) located adjacent to the eastern border of Barrick/Goldcorp's Pueblo Viejo Mine. No significant results were obtained. The data is being compiled and processed to prepare for a follow-up exploration program at Jobo Claro.

Everton is well funded and actively exploring in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec where Everton has amassed one of the largest land claims adjacent to Goldcorp's (NYSE:GG) (TSX:G) Eleonore gold deposit where Goldcorp recently announced an initial gold resource of 2.8 million ounces. Everton is also actively exploring in the Dominican Republic adjacent to where the world's largest gold mining company, Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX) (TSX:ABX) is partnering with Goldcorp to develop, at an estimated cost of $2.7 billion, the Pueblo Viejo deposit, that contains 20.4 million ounces of gold, 2.6 billion pounds of zinc, 423.6 million pounds of copper and 117.3 million ounces of silver.
