Riverside Resources Reports Drill Results From Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project, Arizona

December 30, 2009 - Vancouver, British Columbia: Riverside Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRI) ("Riverside" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has completed drilling and received assay results from all five holes on its 100% controlled Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project in Arizona. The drill program successfully substantiated a portion of the historic data, while testing the geologic model at depth. Drilling targeted the southern portion of the 4 km² surface gold anomaly and was not focused on duplicating previous work by twinning historic drill holes. Riverside completed five angled diamond drill holes on the property for a total of 1,125 meters to a maximum true depth of over 200 meters in any one hole; intercepts are summarized in the table below.

Drilling identified continuous mineralization in all five holes, confirming the presence of an extensive mineralized body to a depth greater than more than double the depth of that previously recorded in historic gold assay drill data. The drill program targeted mineralization that is associated with the geologic models found at the Herradura Mine (Newmont Mining Corp. Industrias Penoles), Mesquite Mine (New Gold Inc.), and El Chanate Mine (Capital Gold Corporation). Disseminated gold mineralization appears similar to that found with this drill program on the Sugarloaf Peak gold project¹. All of the mentioned deposits are large low cost open pit gold mines extracting low grade gold near surface.

"The focused drill program on the large mineralized body at the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project has helped Riverside begin to delineate the character and dimensions of a portion of the mineralized area as well as to better understand the geology of the gold system. During the drill campaign our team continued to explore the large surface footprint and has identified new, higher grade zones, on the northern, eastern and western extensions of the project through surface sampling. These zones will be studied in future work programs as we target high grade zones now with greater understanding of the mineralization controls. We look forward to seeing the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project advance as we begin to better interpret the mineralization controls and continuity of the strong alteration system," commented John-Mark Staude, President & CEO of Riverside. "Riverside is strategically positioned to grow with C$2,900,000 in the treasury and fewer than 22,000,000 shares issued. In the coming month Riverside will continue to grow while advancing the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project."

Drilling Details:
Gold mineralization with continuously strong hydrothermal alteration was intersected in all five drill holes, confirming the presence of an extensive mineralized gold system. The mineralization includes shallow oxides transitioning to sulfides at varying depths of 10 to 15 meters from the surface and deeper zones along shear zone structures. All five drill holes confirmed the presence of an extensive mineralized gold system with gold mineralization from the top to bottom of the holes. The intervals below have been determined using a 0.2 g/t gold (Au) cut off with a maximum gap of two meters between intervals below the cut off grade. Historic results prepared by previous companies on the property presented the data using different parameters which identified longer intervals with no cut off grade. Riverside's parameters show numerous shorter intervals from the drilling rather than extended intervals.

Intersections were calculated using a length weighted multiplication of gold grade multiplied by the sample interval and then divided by the total interval. Intervals were calculated at a 0.20 g/t (gram per tonne) Au cut off using a maximum of 2 meters of internal dilution.

Drilling was conducted by Brown Drilling Company and intersected wide zones of mineralization within an altered rhyolite unit. The mineralization appears to be controlled geologically by both shallow and steeply dipping structures and quartz stockwork veining. This stratigraphic unit and associated structures have been traced across the property in surface mapping and extends for more than 3 kilometers NW-SE along strike. This undrilled structural corridor gives more than six other drill target areas that remain to be tested. In addition, mineralization has been sampled to the north, east and west of the historic resource outline. Riverside will continue to follow up with further exploration work in early 2010.

Riverside Resources drill program was managed by Mr. H. Andrew Daniels, P.Geo. Vice President of Exploration for Riverside and a Qualified Person (QP) under National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101). Mr. Daniels has verified and approved the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information. Samples were prepared and assayed at Inspectorate Laboratory, Sparks, Nevada. Analysis for gold was done on sawn half core samples using 30 gram fire assay (AA finish). Drill core was HQ size (64mm) and drilled at angles of -45 and -60 degrees to the south (180 degrees). Drill collars were located using hand held GPS and, following drilling, were permanently marked with steel pins. Standard reference materials and blank samples were inserted into the sample stream in accordance with industry best practices prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the assay data.

*These estimates at the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project are of historic resources and the Company's geologic team has not yet completed sufficient work to confirm a NI 43-101 compliant resource. Therefore, the estimates cannot, and should not be relied upon. The Sugarloaf Peak historical, non-43-101 compliant resource estimate was reported in N.R. Dausinger Jr, 1983 and N.R. Dausinger Jr., 1987 using a polygonal estimate of all drill holes that had gold assays and there have been no subsequent resource estimations. Dausingers' reports are included in Goldsmith, 2008, 43-101 Technical Report on the Sugarloaf Peak project. The report describes a number of historic non-NI 43-101 compliant resource estimations including 100 million tons at ~ 0.5 g/t gold average grade for a total of 1.5 million ounces gold from shallow drilling averaging less than 130m depth. A more recent report describes a higher grade historic, non-NI 43-101 compliant, estimated resource of 60 million tons of ~ 0.6 g/t average grade for a total of 1.2 million ounces gold with mineralization open to depth and along strike. The historic estimates appear reliable based on the data available at the time and are relevant for the volume of mineralization drilled at that time. Additional drilling that was completed subsequent to N.R. Dausinger Jr., 1987 and prior to 43-101 procedures has not been taken into account as there are no rock sample material remains, and no attempt been made to calculate a new resource estimation. Dausinger's estimation is at the inferred resource level of certainty and includes tons, cut-off grade, average grade at various levels which is consistent with the CIM definitions. This historic resource estimation along with other estimations is summarized in the NI 43-101 technical report, which is filed on www.sedar.com.

1There is no certainty that a similar deposit exists or will be developed on the Sugarloaf Peak Property.

Riverside Commences Drill Program On Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project, Arizona

October 19, 2009 - Vancouver, British Columbia: Riverside Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRI) ("Riverside" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced drilling on its 100% controlled Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project in Arizona. This drill program will target mineralized zones within the non NI 43-101 compliant historic resource* (News Release Nov. 14, 2008) as well as new higher-grade zones (News Release September 9, 2009) outside of the historic resource area. One focus of the current drill program is to compare previous historic reverse circulation drill data with core drilling. This will add to the understanding of the geology and structure, and will further advance the project on its way to potentially becoming known as a significant gold system similar to that of the Mesquite Mine and other active gold mines in the region.

"The Riverside team has been active over the summer collecting samples from the project in order to confirm the presence of a large gold body at the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project. This drill program will enable Riverside to substantiate some of the historic drill results as well as potentially identify new gold zones.", commented John-Mark Staude, President & CEO of Riverside, "By successfully managing the Company's joint venture business model, adding high potential properties to the portfolio and completing focused drill programs on the most exciting targets Riverside has continued to add value for shareholders."

The company has contracted Brown Drilling of Kingman Arizona to complete the 1000m diamond drill program on the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project. The project will be drilled to a depth of approximately 200 meters in order to expand the depth of the known gold assays.

Technical Details:
The current drill program consists of five HQ diamond drill holes targeting a recently identified thick horizon of altered sulphidic "welded" rhyolite tuff and is associated with high grade surface gold values. These values have reached upwards of 11.83 g/t in recent rock chip sampling (News Release September 9, 2009). This unit appears to form the southern limb of an overturned anticlinal structure and has been traced for over 1km on surface.

Thus far the Company has encountered oxidation and leached sulfides consistent with surface alteration in the drill core. Samples are now being logged and split and Upon completion of the drill program the drill core will be sent for assay following 43-101 procedures. Results are expected by the end of December.

Riverside Resources Acquires The Maravillas Gold Project In Durango, Mexico

November 18, 2009 -- Vancouver, BC: Riverside Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX-V: RRI) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Maravillas Gold Project in Durango, Mexico. The Maravillas Property is a large 340 km2 concession that the Company acquired through the use of its extensive mineral and geologic database. The Property lies within the Mesa Central Region of Mexico, which is subject to the Precious Metals Exploration Alliance (the "Alliance") that was established by Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") and Riverside in early 2009 (News Release January 22, 2009) and accordingly, Kinross may elect to participate with Riverside in this opportunity at its discretion. Exploration on the Property has identified a large structurally controlled gold anomaly at surface with various centers of mineralization which Riverside is now actively exploring. Chip samples on the 33,984 hectares (340 km2) Property have produced gold grades ranging up to 1.5 g/t gold, 77g/t silver, and 1.5% copper.

"Riverside's Mexico Exploration Team has been actively assessing potential projects, with the use of Riverside's Mexican Mineral Database and local knowledge. The Company continues to be operator of the Alliance's exploration activities with various prospective projects actively being evaluated." Commented John-Mark Staude, President & CEO of Riverside, "With strong neighboring deposits such as Mapami and San Sebastian, the Maravillas Project has a location that is fitting for a new discovery."

Maravillas Gold Project:
Maravillas is located west of Penoles's historic Ojuela Ag-Pb-Zn mining operation on a north-south trending structural corridor parallel to the Ojuela and Descubribora/ Km 66 districts. The gold mineralization identified so far on the Maravillas Property is related to jasperoid occurrences controlled by a regional system of thrust faults with nearby and likely related silver and copper mineralization. It is most likely associated with a series of porphyritic intrusive dikes and sills. The intrusions are dacite porphyry, similar in mineralogy and textures to the intrusions at other significant metal districts in the Mesa Central such as the Penoles District, San Martin Zacatecas, and Velardena. The intrusions are interpreted to be of Tertiary age and mineralized the Jurassic-Cretaceous sequence of shales and limestone. A silica-alunite alteration zone that contains gold and silver mineralization occurs along the border of a graben structure and is associated with Jurassic volcanic rocks. Riverside's current program of sampling and mapping aims to delineate the extents and tenor of mineralization in order to identify the high impact target in the area.

About Riverside Resources:
Riverside is well financed, with over $3,200,000 in the treasury and 21,855,080 shares outstanding.

Riverside Receives High Grade Gold Exploration Results From Expanded Target Zones On Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project, Arizona

September 9, 2009 - Vancouver, British Columbia: Riverside Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRI) ("Riverside" or the "Company") is pleased to announce new exploration results from its 100% controlled Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project, Arizona. The Company has been active over the summer completing drill targeting, detailed mapping, expanded geochemical sampling, and drill permitting in preparation for the fall drill program that will target higher grade gold zones on the exposed 4 km² gold anomaly near surface. New geochemistry combined with more than 2,000 historic surface gold assays acquired for the property indicate the surface expression of the gold mineralized system may, in the opinion of the Company, be more than twice the size of the original drilled area. This data has brought the project to the forefront of Riverside's portfolio and illustrates the potential for Sugarloaf Peak to become a significant low grade Jurassic gold system similar to that of the Mesquite and other active gold mines in the vicinity.

The Company is pleased to report that geochemical rock chip sampling undertaken at Sugarloaf Peak in July has confirmed the presence of higher grade mineralization in outcrops and has further extended areas of previously sampled surface mineralization. Twelve of the highest grade chip channel samples out of 200 returned assays greater than 1 g/t over 1.5m and a further four samples returned assays greater than 2 g/t over 1.5m. The highest surface chip channel assays include results of 11.83 g/t, 5.18 g/t, 2.19 g/t, and 2.13 g/t over 1.5m.

In light of the recent higher grade gold results, Riverside has better defined targets to test the large gold body* in an upcoming drill program expected to begin in the fall. Riverside has received the necessary permits to begin the drill program and will be working to build the necessary access roads and drill pads in the coming weeks.

Technical Summary
Approximately 200 rock chip samples were taken along six widely spaced traverses which crossed the Sugarloaf Peak stratigraphy and interpreted main structures. Rock chip channel samples were collected at approximately 50m spacing or where outcrop was encountered (in areas of colluvial cover). Assay results have indicated that twelve of the more than 200 samples contain greater than 1g/t over 1.5m and a further four samples contain greater than 2 g/t over 1.5m. The maximum grade of 11.83 g/t is the highest recorded rock chip sample on the property to date. The samples on the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project show that the gold mineralization appears to be hosted by a sulphidic "welded" rhyolite tuff unit, that forms two limbs of a gently west plunging anticlinal structure. Higher grade samples appear to be associated with zones of quartz veining within this tuff unit. Major northwest shearing and echelon shear gashes concentrate higher grade mineralization similar, in the opinion of the Company, to that found at the Herradura Mine.

Pursuant to the Company's stock option plan, and subject to the TSX-V approval, the Company has granted 895,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.39 to certain Directors, Officers and Consultants of the Company.

The technical content of this news release has been prepared and supervised by H. Andrew Daniels, P. Geo who is the Company's Qualified Person (QP) under National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101).

QA QC Procedures: The Company has implemented a quality control program to ensure best practices in sampling and analysis. Duplicates, standards and blank samples are randomly inserted into the sample stream. Samples were delivered in secure, sealed bags to Jacobs Assay Labs in Tucson, Arizona for analysis. Gold is determined by fire assay with atomic absorption finish.

*These estimates at the Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project are of historic resources and the Company's geologic team has not yet completed sufficient work to confirm a NI 43-101 compliant resource. Therefore, the estimates cannot, and should not be relied upon. The Sugarloaf Peak historical, non-43-101 compliant resource estimate was reported in N.R. Dausinger Jr, 1983 and N.R. Dausinger Jr., 1987 using a polygonal estimate of all drill holes that had gold assays and there have been no subsequent resource estimations. Dausingers' reports are included in Goldsmith, 2008, 43-101 Technical Report on the Sugarloaf Peak project. The report describes a number of historic non-NI 43-101 compliant resource estimations including 100 million tons at ~ 0.5 g/t gold average grade for a total of 1.5 million ounces gold from shallow drilling averaging less than 130m depth. A more recent report describes a higher grade historic, non-NI 43-101 compliant, estimated resource of 60 million tons of ~ 0.6 g/t average grade for a total of 1.2 million ounces gold with mineralization open to depth and along strike. The historic estimates appear reliable based on the data available at the time and are relevant for the volume of mineralization drilled at that time. Additional drilling that was completed subsequent to N.R. Dausinger Jr., 1987 and prior to 43-101 procedures has not been taken into account as there are no rock sample material remains, and no attempt been made to calculate a new resource estimation. Designer's estimation is at the inferred resource level of certainty and includes tons, cut-off grade, average grade at various levels which is consistent with the CIM definitions. This historic resource estimation along with other estimations is summarized in the NI 43-101 technical report which is filed on www.sedar.com.
