OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/21/13 -- Everton Resources Inc. ("Everton" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: EVR)(FRANKFURT: ERV)(OTCQX: EVRRF) is pleased to announce new results from the Ponton property in the Dominican Republic. Outcrop and float mineralization uncovered in two drainages in the south-central sector of Ponton have returned values of 1.7 g/t gold, 5.1 g/t silver, 0.17% copper, 1.42% zinc, and 0.16% lead. Six other samples assay are over 0.1 g/t gold. These samples were collected in a drainage where previous rock samples assayed over 0.5 g/t gold (see news release dated February 13, 2013). Everton currently owns a 50% interest in Ponton and will own a 100% interest upon the closing of its previously announced acquisition agreement with Brigus Gold Corp. (see news release dated October 24, 2012).
Assays for an additional 74 rock grab, float and outcrop channel samples collected along strike with mineralized structure containing a sulfide rich hydrothermal breccias include gold values of 1.13g/t and 1.73 g/t, and silver values of 8.4g/t and 7.3 g/t and included lead and zinc values.
A soil grid has been sampled covering the locations of interest and 143 samples are being rush-assayed at Acme Labs together with an additional 33 rock samples collected from the same areas.
A reconnaissance survey on the Jarabacoa concession (application for a 100% interest pending granting) was conducted during February and March and resulted in values of 6.78 g/t gold, 28.3 g/t silver and 1.64% copper, with other anomalous values in copper and molybdenum. Two parallel zones of gossanous metavolcanics and thick quartz veins in contact with foliated tonalities have been mapped over an extension of at least 4 kilometres. These results are being followed up by additional rock sampling and a soil grid survey is planned to cover these mineralized zones. The Jarabacoa concession is adjacent to and in the same geological setting as the "Las Animas" VMS prospect where GoldQuest Mining Corp. ("GoldQuest") has published a mineral resource estimate in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101").
Andre Audet, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Everton said, "We are encouraged by the new results at Ponton and Jarabacoa. The results to date on these properties show the potential for new discoveries in the mineral rich Dominican Republic."
