Foundation Acquires 100% Interest in the Coldstream Gold Project, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2011) - Foundation Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FDN)(FRANKFURT:S52) ("Foundation" or "Company") and Alto Ventures Ltd. ("Alto") have entered into a binding Letter of Intent pursuant to which Foundation will acquire Alto's 40% interest in the Coldstream Gold Project. The Coldstream Project is host to a number of significant gold targets including the East Coldstream deposit which has a NI 43-101 resource estimate of 763,276 ounces gold (30.5 million tonnes at 0.78 g/t gold) in the Inferred and 96,400 ounces gold (3.5 million tonnes at 0.85 g/t gold) in the Indicated categories (see Figure 1). This consolidation in ownership gives Foundation a 100% interest in the property.

"We are very pleased to acquire the remaining 40% interest in the Coldstream Property which is a substantial step forward in the development of the Company," states Foundation's President Ike Osmani. "Further, this consolidation of ownership enhances Alto as a strategic shareholder and creates additional value for our existing shareholders."

In consideration of the acquisition of Alto's 40% interest, the Company will pay aggregate consideration of $2,500,000 payable through the issuance of 10,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.12 per share and $1,300,000 in cash over a six month period. On the Closing Date, Foundation will pay to Alto $350,000 in cash and issue Alto such number of common shares, up to 10 million shares, as will not result in Alto becoming a control person of Foundation. Within six months of the closing date, Foundation will pay to Alto $950,000 in cash, subject to a potential three month extension period, and issue the balance of any common shares due to Alto. As part of the agreement Alto will vote in support of management for a period of three years and will not tender its shares to any take-over bid not recommended by Foundation's Board of Directors.

About the Coldstream Project

There are currently five (5) known significant gold mineralization areas occurring within the claim boundaries of the Coldstream Property that are currently subject to aggressive exploration and development campaigns by the Company (Figure 1). The exploration targets include: East Coldstream Deposit, Iris Zone, Goldie Zone, Span Lake deposit and the Burchell West prospect. Of these, the East Coldstream Deposit is the most advanced of all other targets for which a NI 43-101 resource estimate of 763,276 ounces gold in the Inferred and 96,400 ounces gold in the Indicated categories has been calculated and reported on September 20, 2011. The 6,410-hectare Property, located along the Trans Canada Highway 115 km west of Thunder Bay in northwestern Ontario, occurs within the western Shebandowan Greenstone Belt (SGB) of the Wawa Subprovince which is host to some of the richest gold mines in Canada (e.g., Hemlo gold camp).

Gold on the Coldstream Property occurs along 16 kilometres of the 25 kilometre long, northeast-southwest trending North Coldstream-Moss Lake deformation zone and its subsidiary structures.
