"Our discovery efforts continue to reward us and our shareholders. Today's results show these are some of the best holes we've seen yet," said Andre Audet, President and CEO of Everton Resources Inc.

"Combined with our previous results, our geologists' growing understanding of La Lechoza Prospect has led to a more targeted drilling program intent on discovering higher grades and thicker intercepts," Mr. Audet added.

"Ultimately, the value of our decision to focus our business activities almost entirely in the Central Dominican Republic has been endorsed by EVR stakeholders. The assays appear to support our decision too," he said.

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 Ampliación 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.
