July 25, 2017 – Vancouver, BC: Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: RRI), is pleased to announce that the Company has completed the first phase of self-funded exploration at the Cecilia Gold Project (the “Project”)located in northeastern Sonora, Mexico. Riverside is targeting epithermal gold-silver mineralization within and beneath a felsic volcanic flow-dome complexwhich is similar in age and composition to the dome complexes that are associated with the large La Pitarrilla and San Julian Ag(-Au)-Pb-Zn deposits found in the Mexican state of Durango.
Highlights of Riverside’s second batch of sampling results included 8.0 and 9.7 metre wide zones of gold mineralization at the North Breccia Zone that averaged 3.90 g/t Au and 1.18 g/t Au, respectively. These intervals encompass a total of 8 chip-channel samples 1.80 to 3.0 metres in length. About 400 metres southwest of the North Breccia Zone an altered fault structure was mineralized, with a 3.0 m wide zone showing an average grade of 5.45 g/t Au. The Company’s exploration program has successfully outlined a number of priority drill targets and Riverside has now started the application process for drill permitting.
