OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 30, 2014) - Everton Resources Inc. ("Everton" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EVR)(FRANKFURT:ERV) is pleased to provide an update on the core drilling program on its 100% owned Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo concession located adjacent to the Pueblo Viejo gold mine (Barrick/Goldcorp) in the central Dominican Republic. The drill program started on March 10th and ten holes totaling approximately 3,000 meters have been completed. As previously announced, the drill program initially contemplated 10-15 holes, 200 to 300 meters deep representing approximately 5,000 meters in total.
The program is designed to test anomalies interpreted from airborne and ground geophysics, soils and rock geochemistry, geological mapping and results from previous drilling campaigns.
The drilling has intersected several intervals of moderate to strong hydrothermal alteration and sulphide mineralization. These include moderate to advanced argillic alteration, locally strong to massive silicification and regional propyllitic alteration in volcanics, minor sedimentary units and fine grained intrusives.
The core is being logged, photographed and sampled at the core shack facilities in Cotui. To date two job batches have been sent to the samples preparation facilities of Acme Laboratories in Maimon, for processing and shipping to Vancouver, BC for assaying. Drill results are expected to be released as soon as they are available.
Sampling and QA/QC procedures
The core is received at the drill sites by the Everton geologist in charge and transported by ground to the core processing facilities in Cotui, where the boxes are quick logged, sample intervals are marked and the boxes are photographed before cutting. The core is split with electric diamond rock saw and sampled in 1.5 metres average intervals. Commercial standards and blanks are inserted in the sample chain, as well as regularly duplicating samples by quartering. Everton also regularly inserts limestone samples known to have no gold or base metals mineralization for further internal control.
The cutting and sampling is continuously supervised by the geologist in charge. The samples are bagged in plastic bags, labelled and sealed. The holes are being sent to the preparation lab once each hole is completely sampled. The assay protocols used are standard of Acme Labs PRP85-250 and assay by ICP-MS code AQ200.
The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Hugo Dominguez, C.P.G., who acts as Everton's Qualified Person as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
