Everton Announces Start-Up of Second Drill at Deep Drilling Program on the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo Project, Dominican Republic

Thursday, June 09, 2011

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, June 9, 2011 -- Everton Resources Inc. (TSXV: EVR) (“ Everton” or the “ Company”) is pleased to announce the arrival of its second drill rig to commence work this week on its pioneering, 20,000-metres deep-drilling program at the Ampliación Pueblo Viejo project (the “ APV Project”) located in the central region of the Dominican Republic.

The new drill will be used to drill for gold and copper discovery targets beneath the silica lithocap on the APV Project which is located just west of and immediately adjacent to Barrick/Goldcorp’s Pueblo Viejo gold deposit.

“Our target is the porphyritic intrusion that we believe, backed by geological theory, is associated with Pueblo Viejo, one of the largest gold deposits in the Western Hemisphere,” stated Andre Audet, Chairman and CEO of Everton.

Drilling through the silica lithocap is aimed to test the theory that underneath it lies a shallow level porphyritic intrusion that, in turn, may be associated with porphyry style copper-gold mineralization as documented in similar geological environments.

The current drill program commenced in March of 2011 when the first 600-metre capable drill commenced activities to explore mineralized structures or possible extensions of the mineralisation from the Monte Negro and Arroyo Hondo pits of the Pueblo Viejo complex.

This program anticipates drilling of eight to twelve holes ranging in depth between 800 and 1,200 metres. The new Maxidrill 18 built in Laval, Quebec is capable of drilling up to 1,500 metres in NQ size core and will be used to drill the deeper holes which are anticipated to be cut through the extensive silica lithocap that extends over 20 square kilometres west and north of the APV Project. Numerous geochemical and geophysical anomalies have been defined at surface and at depth and these are the targets to be tested. A third drill currently being assembled in Spain and it is anticipated that it will replace an older drill currently being used on the APV Project.

The company holds a 50% interest in the Ampliacion Pueblo Viejo (“APV”), Ponton and La Cueva projets (the “Concessions”), which are managed by Everton and are contiguous with Barrick’s and GoldCorp’s the US$3 billion Pueblo Viejo project. Planned divestiture of its 100%-owned subsidiary Hays Lake Gold containing the Shoal Lake Gold Project in Kenora, Ontario is expected to provide internal funding to advance the APV project.
