Riverside Resources and Centerra Gold Report Additional Trench Results and Commence Drilling at the Glor Gold Project


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – April 17, 2017) – Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:RRI)(OTC PINK:RVSDF)(FRANKFURT:R99), is pleased to report that partner-funded drilling has commenced with Centerra Gold Inc. (“Centerra”) at the Glor Gold Project (the “Project”), located approximately 8 km west of Alamos Gold’s El Chanate Mine in Sonora, Mexico. The 2017 exploration campaign commenced at the end of January with a program of mechanical trenching that yielded long intervals of disseminated gold mineralization at surface at the Pitaya Gold Zone (see Riverside’s press release on March 21, 2017).

A 2,000 metre diamond drilling program has now commenced with the first drill-holes designed to begin testing the newly discovered Pitaya Gold Zone, as well as induced polarization geophysical anomalies that are broadly coincident with this zone of mineralization. The mechanical trenching program, which has been employing a heavy-duty back-hoe, has been halted so that the project team can focus on the diamond drilling work.
