Holes APV10-21, Holes APV10-24, and Holes APV10-29 at the Noth Manuel target returned low values.

Assays for APV11-01 to APV11-05 pending. Holes APV11-06 and APV11-09 currently underway.

The mineralization at La Lechoza has the characteristics of exhalative polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulphides (VMS) and is zoned laterally and possibly vertically. Hole APV10-20 was drilled parallel to the interpreted structure and confirmed the lateral zonation of the metal distribution and the dip angle of the structure. The stratigraphy in these holes is dominated by basaltic andesites, breccias and tuffs, and banded cherts which directly overlay the mineralized structure at Pon Hill. 

Diamond Drilling Program

This program to date has completed 3,400 metres and another 12 holes are planned during the next two months. This program is designed to follow-up on targets identified during the 2009 and 2010 drilling phases.

A second phase of the program that consists of deep drilling is slated to commence in early 2011, as soon as the adequate equipment is ready. This program will include 10,000 meters in 8 to 12 holes between 800 and 1200 meters. The purpose of this program is to test the deep portions of the mineralization system inferred to occur beneath a barren silica lithocap covering the area in the southwestern sector of the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo concession.

This press release was reviewed by Robert Wheatley, P. Geo. and VP Exploration of Everton, who acts as Everton's Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Personnel, at the project, photograph each individual core box from each core hole prior to measuring core recovery and geologically logging the hole. The core is then sawn in half with one half going to the lab and the other half kept for reference. All sample shipments are sealed and shipped to Acme Analytical Laboratories (R.D.) S.A. at Maimón for preparation. Prepared samples are then sent to the Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Vancouver for analysis. Acme's quality control system complies with the requirements for the International Standard ISO 9001:2000 by monitoring analytical accuracy and precision with the insertion and analysis of blanks, reference standards and duplicate samples. Everton's Quality Control is further assured by the use of in-house blanks. The use of certified standards and independent analysis of duplicate samples is being initiated.

Everton

Everton is partnered with Brigus Gold on actively exploring in the Dominican Republic adjacent to the US$3 billion Pueblo Viejo project, currently being developed by the world's largest gold mining company, Barrick Gold Corporation (60%) (NYSE/TSX: ABX) in partnership with Goldcorp (40%) ("Goldcorp") (NYSE: GG, TSX: G). Planned divestiture of its 100%-owned subsidiary Hays Lake Gold containing the Shoal Lake Gold Project in Kenora, Ontario is expected to provide internal funding to advance the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo project. Everton also holds an interest in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec where the Company has partnered with Aurizon Mines Ltd. who is advancing Everton's interest by funding 100% of all exploration work on one of the largest land packages adjacent to Goldcorp's Eleonore gold deposit.
