Riverstone Intersects 18.5 Metres of 4.10 g/t Gold at Rambo Main Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2010) - Riverstone Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RVS)(FRANKFURT:3RV) is pleased to report results from eight additional diamond drill holes on the Rambo Main gold deposit, which is one of four deposits that host NI 43-101 compliant resources on the Karma gold project in Burkina Faso, West Africa (See Map on website: http://www.riverstoneresources.com/i/maps/100907_RamboLXS.JPG). The Rambo Main is located approximately 4 kilometres south of the Company's Nami discovery. The holes were drilled to follow up on recent drilling (see News Releases dated May 3 and April 28, 2010), which intersected significant gold values.

"We are encouraged by the results of the drilling on the Rambo Main," commented M.D. McInnis, President & CEO of Riverstone Resources. "The grades are excellent and the zone is still open down the plunge. The zone clearly warrants additional drilling which will be planned as part of the Company's fall drilling program of over 20,000 metres at the Karma project."

Significant mineralized intercepts are presented in the following table. Holes were drilled towards the north at -60º, except for RADD-10-18 which was at -45º.

Key Drilling Highlights:

  • 18.5 metres of 4.104 g/t Au in Hole 18
  • 21.0 metres of 1.831 g/t Au, including 6.0 metres of 5.121 g/t Au in Hole 20
  • 8.0 metres of 2.490 g/t Au and 2.0 metres of 6.455 g/t Au in Hole 21
