Everton Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EVR; Frankfurt: ERV) and its partner Azimut Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AZM) are pleased to announce the discovery of a new mineralized zone grading up to 24.6 g/t gold on Opinaca A and the identification of additional new high priority targets along the Claude-Manuel corridor on Opinaca B, in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec near Goldcorp's Eleonore gold deposit (initial indicated gold resource of 2.8 million ounces). At the beginning of September, a 2,000-meter drill program is scheduled to commence at the Smiley Target on Opinaca A, approximately 4 kilometers north of the Eleonore gold deposit.

Opinaca A

Follow-up prospecting and sampling carried out this summer has led to the discovery of the Charles Target on Opinaca A where anomalous to high grade rock chip sample values ranging from 0.1 to g/t to 24.6 g/t Au were returned over an area of at least 500 m long by 100 m wide. Results of 92 rock chip samples and 3 boulder samples collected within the mineralized zone are as follows:

  • 10 samples yielded values higher than 1.0 g/t Au, including values of 24.6 g/t Au, 16.7 g/t Au, 2.4 g/t Au, 1.6 g/t Au, 1.4 g/t Au and 1.3 g/t Au. Visible gold was observed on the outcrop where the 16.7 g/t Au sample was collected;
  • 7 samples returned values ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 g/t Au;
  • 15 samples returned values ranging from 0.1 to 0.5 g/t Au; and
  • 63 samples returned values less than 0.1 g/t Au.

An additional 66 samples have been collected and their results are pending.

The Charles Target is a northeast-southwest trending mineralized zone located in the central part of Opinaca A. For the location of the Charles Target, please visit Everton's website at The Charles Target consists of garnet and sulphide-rich, chloritized and silicified metasediments in contact with pegmatitic intrusions. The mineralization is composed of up to 20% pyrite, arsenopyrite with minor pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite associated with garnet and chloritic zones.

Another gold showing located 5 km southeast of the Charles Target was also discovered. Preliminary results returned 3.9 g/t Au in metasediments cross-cut by pegmatite veins.

Opinaca B

Comprehensive prospecting and rock sampling along the 10 km Claude-Manuel corridor has identified additional new high-priority targets on Opinaca B. Several rock samples collected along that corridor returned significant gold values over a strike length of 3 kilometers grading up to 6.1 g/t Au, 4.5 g/t Au, 1.7 g/t Au and 1.2 g/t Au. The mineralization contains up to 5% pyrite and is associated with silicified and chloritized metasediments with quartz and pegmatite veins.

To follow-up geochemical anomalies and to identify new exploration targets, an extensive trenching program continues along the Claude-Manuel corridor in conjunction with ongoing prospecting and sampling programs on both Opinaca A and Opinaca B.

Rock samples were assayed for gold by Laboratoire Expert Inc in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec using FA-AA. Multi-element ICP scan assays will be completed by Activation Laboratory in Ancaster, Ontario.

This press release was prepared under the supervision of Marc L'Heureux, P.Geo., Everton's Vice-President of Exploration, who acts as the "Qualified Person" as described by NI 43-101.

Everton is well funded and actively exploring in the Opinaca region of James Bay, Quebec where Everton has amassed one of the largest land claims adjacent to Goldcorp's (NYSE:GG, TSX:G) Eleonore gold deposit where Goldcorp recently announced an initial gold resource of 2.8 million ounces. Everton is also actively exploring in the Dominican Republic adjacent to where the world's largest gold mining company, Barrick Gold (NYSE/TSX:ABX) is partnering with Goldcorp to develop, at an estimated cost of $2.3 billion, the Pueblo Viejo deposit, that contains 18.1 million ounces of gold, 2.6 billion pounds of zinc, 358 million pounds of copper and 88 million ounces of silver.
