Riverside Resources and Partner Antofagasta Drill 23.4 g/t Gold, 0.62% Copper and 435 g/t Silver Over 1.5 Metres at the Swift Katie Project in British Columbia, Canada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 13, 2014) - Riverside Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RRI)(FRANKFURT:R99)(PINKSHEETS:RVSDF) is pleased to announce the results of a recently completed reconnaissance drilling campaign at the Swift Katie Project (the "Project") located in southeastern BC. Five diamond drill holes, totaling 1423m, were completed at the Swift porphyry target with some encouraging results. These holes tested soil and resistivity anomalies over a 1 km2 area. Spacing between drill hole collars ranges from 350m to 900m(Click here to view: http://rivres.com/images/PR_2014DH-locations.jpg).

The 2014 drill program encountered numerous zones of precious metal mineralization. Highlighted assays include 23.4 g/t gold, 0.62% copper and 435 g/t silver over 1.5 m as well as 5.69 g/t gold, 0.13% copper and 26.6 g/t silver over 2 m (both intervals from SK14-002). The Company believes these high-grade gold-silver vein intercepts warrant further exploration and follow-up, as the primary exploration objective to-date has only focused on the large-scale copper-gold porphyry potential of the Swift target. The two zones associated with the high-grade precious metals include 20-40cm wide pyrite-pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite veins at the contact between andesite and diorite. The interval from 179.5 to 181m has associated polymetallic mineralization including 0.6% lead. This polymetallic mineralization may be an indication of a transition from a peripheral porphyry environment to a proximal porphyry environment.

Highlighted drill results are summarized in the table below:

Reported intervals are core lengths, true widths undetermined.
*Gold Equivalent calculation, Au Eq =(Au g/t + ((Cu grade x Cu price)+(Ag grade x Ag price))/(Au price), was used with $1,144 gold, $15.42 silver and $3.03 copper.

SK14-001 and SK14-003 did not intersect significant copper or gold values, however hydrothermal alteration in the form of chlorite, epidote, calcite, pyrite and magnetite were intercepted in both holes. In addition, indicators of porphyry-style mineralization have been intersected, including zones of potassic alteration (biotite-magnetite) in SK14-002, SK14-004 and SK14-005. The results support Riverside's belief that there is a hydrothermal system associated with porphyry Cu-Au mineralization at Swift. These results are being evaluated along with property-scale targets to determine the next phase of work.

Riverside's President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: "The drill results are positive in finding gold mineralization and alkalic porphyry Cu-Au style alteration. With further work, we hope to further expand the known extent of mineralization and with over a half dozen targets to potentially test, Riverside looks forward to further work in the year ahead."
