VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – June 6, 2017) – Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:RRI)(OTC PINK:RVSDF)(FRANKFURT:R99), is pleased to report initial results from the Company’s first-phase exploration program at the Cecilia Project (the “Project”) located in northeastern Sonora, Mexico. Riverside’s exploration team is targeting epithermal gold-silver mineralization hosted by a felsic flow-dome complex, which is similar in age and composition to volcanic structures such as the large Pitarrilla and San Julian silver deposits found in the State of Durango.
The sampling done to date has been concentrated at the North Breccia and Central zones, the two highest priority gold targets presently known on the property (see Figure 1 below). Thirty-three (33) of the 91 samples collected at Cecilia (approximately 36% of the total) yielded gold assays greater than 0.5 g/t gold (Au), with five samples assaying greater than 3 g/t Au. The three best rock-chip assays were 113.7 g/t Au with 288 g/t silver (Ag), 58 g/t Au with 207 g/t Ag and 8.42 g/t Au with 87.8 g/t Ag.
