Everton Resources Initiates Exploration Programs

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 4, 2016) - Everton Resources Inc. ("Everton" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EVR) is pleased to announce the commencement of field programs in Canada and the Dominican Republic.

BLUE SKY JACKPOT Lithium Ontario

Located in the Thunder Bay Mining District of Ontario approximately 150 kilometers northeast of Thunder Bay, the lithium property hosts numerous spodumene bearing pegmatite occurrences and has lain dormant since 1955 when it was worked by the Ontario Lithium Corporation. The patented claim group was forfeit due to unpaid taxes and has subsequently been optioned by Everton Resources. This initial exploration program will focus on areas previously reported to host spodumene bearing pegmatite occurrences to locate, validate and sample these pegmatite occurrences for lithium and rare earth elements. (See news release May 17, 2016.)

The Blue Sky Jackpot Lithium property surrounds the Jackpot Occurrence, a small four claim unit group in the centre of the Everton property that is also described by E. G. Pye in his 1965 report as reportedly hosting a historic non-compliant resource of 2 million tons of 1.09% lithium oxide.

ARROYO CARPINTERO (formerly Ponton) Dominican Republic

Located 27 km east of the Pueblo Viejo mine, this concession will be the initial focus of our renewed exploration efforts in the Dominican Republic. Soil geochemistry, trenching, and soil samples have previously defined significant anomalies, along with artisanal mining having been observed onsite. This very promising prospect is located in the Monte Plata Province and on one of the few regional volcanic centers on the "Los Ranchos Formation". The concession is not located near any ecologically restricted areas, has good access and a low population density. Surface geology, soil, and rock geochemistry sampling have returned values of 4.08 g/t Au, 30 g/t Ag, 0.63% Cu and 0.67% Zn. Grid line cutting and surveying is being initiated as a precursor to a 22 km line Induced Polarization (IP) ground geophysical survey. The IP survey will cover resistivity and magnetics and should start in late August.

André Audet, Chairman and CEO of Everton, commented: "This will be a very active season for Everton. I am looking forward to report on the results of our exploration programs and to further advance our gold, copper and lithium projects in Ontario and the Dominican Republic."
