Apr 9 2013 12:00AM



TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/13 -- Deveron Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: DVR) ("Deveron" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired an initial stake in Boreal Agrominerals Inc. ("Boreal"). Deveron has purchased a 6% interest in Boreal, which owns and operates a significant carbonatite quarry near Sudbury, Ontario. (Please visit:

Boreal is a private company that explores for, tests, develops and produces organic-certified agromineral fertilizers and soil amendment products, targeting the purest and most reactive minerals that are superior for organic as well as conventional farming enterprises.

The carbonatite product is referred to as Spanish River Carbonatite "SRC". The material is designated by the Organic Materials Review Institute in Eugene, Oregon, as "OMRI Listed" and therefore may be used in certified organic production. SRC has also passed the various Ontario and British Columbia Ministry of Environment tests which are required to have the product included as a compost amendment at various major landfill/composting sites and as a soil amendment in those jurisdictions where parks, playing fields, lawns, forests and gardens are being legislated as chemical free.

The calcium carbonate (CaCO3) in SRC is one of the most reactive calcium carbonate products (aglime) available in bulk in North America. With additional credits for its other macro/micronutrients (including phosphorus and potassium), and high activity clay, SRC is one of the best quality, and the only magmatic high-calcium aglime available within North America's Agricultural Core.

"Our mission is to be leaders in the development of a complete line of natural agromineral fertilizers and soil enhancers for sustainable agriculture and soil restoration," stated John Slack, Boreal CEO. "We are pleased to have Deveron as an active investor/partner and look forward to working with them as Boreal ramps up sales and production."

"To their credit, over the past number of years, Boreal management has done most of the heavy lifting in terms of acquiring a potentially massive carbonatite deposit, testing the product and then educating the market place as to its merits. Boreal is now at the point where sales are about to ramp up and they expect to be cash flow positive this year. Organic farming is the fastest-growing sector in North American agriculture. We are excited to be part of this story and may increase our ownership in the future," said Jim Pirie, Deveron CEO.
