Riverside Resources and Partner Morro Bay Resources Drill 251.2 g/t Silver and 0.79 g/t Gold Over 9.5 Metres at the Penoles Gold-Silver Project in Durango, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2014) - Riverside Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RRI)(PINKSHEETS:RVSDF)(FRANKFURT:R99), is pleased to announce the results from an additional six (6) drill holes that were completed at the recently discovered Jesus Maria South Zone (the "Zone") at the Peñoles Project (the "Project") in Durango, Mexico. The Company believes that these results confirm the continuity and extent of the near surface Zone away from areas of historic mining.

The assay results included the following highlighted intervals:

  • 9.5 m interval averaging 251.2 g/t silver and 0.79 g/t gold (JM DDH 14-27)

  • 15.85 m interval averaging 123.7 g/t silver and 0.22 g/t gold (JM DDH 14-25)

  • 6.25 m interval averaging 304.6 g/t silver and 0.17 g/t gold (JM DDH 14-26)

The final six holes of the program were drilled over a strike length of approximately 200 metres, to the east of JM DDH 14-24 (see Riverside's press release dated June 9, 2014), and successfully demonstrated good continuity of mineralization at the Jesus Maria South Zone. The area tested by these six holes lies within the area where Jesus Maria and Jesus Maria South start to merge (see Figure 1). All six holes (JM DDH 14-25 through JM DDH 14-30) encountered significant mineralization, as can be seen in the table below:

Riverside's President and CEO, John-Mark Staude stated, "Riverside is pleased with the final results of this latest round of drilling at the Jesus Maria South Zone, with all holes intersecting a consistent trend, grade and estimated width. We are very pleased with all of the progress and partner funded exploration and drilling that has taken place at the Peñoles Project, and believe there is still significant upside and growth potential with a number of compelling targets either untested, or open in multiple directions."

About the Peñoles Project:

The Peñoles Project is located in the Durango silver-gold belt in north-central Mexico and is currently owned 100% by Riverside. The recently completed drill program was conducted pursuant to a commitment by Morro Bay Resources Ltd. ("Morro Bay") to perform $750,000 of exploration work on the property during the first part of 2014. Morro Bay can complete its option to earn an initial 51-per-cent interest in the property by paying USD$1.35-million in cash to Riverside and paying USD$1.5-million worth of Morro Bay shares (or cash at Morro Bay's option, provided that if the market value of the Morro Bay shares is less than five cents based on a 30-day volume-weighted average price, such payment must be made in cash) by June 30, 2014.

According to Morro Bay, all drill cores were placed in numbered boxes and transported to Morro Bay's secure core facilities by the drill contractor. Following detailed core logging all core was split using a diamond bladed core saw under the direct supervision of Morro Bay's geologic staff with half of the core kept on site in the original core boxes. All drill samples were sealed in numbered plastic bags and transported to Inspectorate America Assay labs facility in Durango City for prep work and analyzed at their facilities in Reno. Inspectorate America is certified for the provision of assays and geochemical analysis (ISO:9001-2008). All samples were prepared using standard industry prep methods followed by fire assay analysis and aqua regia digest for trace elements. All samples with greater than 10 g/t Au or 100 g/t silver were additionally tested by fire assay with a gravimetric finish. Morro Bay has included appropriate industry certified standards and blanks within the drill core sample stream in addition to the standards and duplicates included as part of the Inspectorate QA/QC program.
