OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 20, 2007) - This news release is intended for distribution in Canada only and is not intended for distribution to United States newswire services or dissemination in the United States.

Everton Resources Inc. ("Everton")(TSX VENTURE:EVR) is pleased to announce that it completed its previously-announced private placement of 10,000,000 Units at a price of $1.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of $12,500,000.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share (a "Unit Share") of Everton and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of Everton at a price of $1.65 until August 20, 2008, provided that if the weighted-average price of the common shares of the Company on the TSX Venture Exchange is equal to or greater than $2.50 for 20 consecutive trading days, the holder will have 30 days to exercise their warrants failing which the warrants will expire, provided that such expiry date shall be no earlier than June 21, 2007.

The brokered private placement was completed by a syndicate of agents led by Orion Securities Inc. and including Canaccord Adams Inc. (collectively the "Agents"). In connection with the private placement, the Agents received cash commission equal to 6.5% of the gross proceeds of the Offering. The Agents also received compensation options (the "Compensation Options") equal to 6.5% of the total number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Compensation Option entitles the Agents to purchase one Unit at the Issue Price until August 20, 2008.

Everton will use the net proceeds from the Offering to fund its further exploration and development in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec, to further advance the Company's exploration activities in the Dominican Republic, and for general corporate purposes.

The Unit Shares, the Warrants, Compensation Options and the securities issuable upon exercise thereof are subject to resale restrictions until and including June 21, 2007.
