OVERVIEW

Riverside has acquired 100% ownership of two large mining concessions through a lottery process. These mining concessions were formerly owned by Meridian Gold (subsidiary of Yamana Gold). The combined concessions obtained cover approximately 2,305 hectares (23 km² ) and comprises an integral part of the historic La Silla District. The La Silla acquisition was low-cost and adds a high-potential gold-silver property to the Riverside portfolio in a well-known major mineral district in Mexico.

EXPLORATION HISTORY & RESULTS

Historic exploration on the claims, now controlled by Riverside, included detailed surface mapping and 138 surface rock chip samples. The reported rock chip samples ranged from <0.05ppb Au up to 58 g/t gold and from <1g/t Ag up to 426 g/t silver. Six drill holes were previously completed and recorded by Meridian Gold in 2004 on Riverside’s El Roble vein system, which intersected zones of multi-stage white, tan, and green quartz with abundant iron oxides replacing sulphides over widths of up to 15 metres. Selected historic drill intercepts include (DDH001) 15 metres of 6.9 g/t gold and 33 g/t silver, as well as (DDH003) 1.5 metres of 5.33 g/t gold and 26 g/t silver. No historic samples exist for Riverside to confirm these assay results and therefore these results  should not be relied upon.

Riverside geologists have thus far collected 74 rock chip samples with assay results ranging from <0.05 up to 7.24 g/t gold and <0.05 to 148.4 g/t silver. Ten of the samples returned greater than 1 g/t gold (see table below for highlighted samples):

Disclosure: Initial Riverside sampling at La Silla was selective in nature and therefore may not be representative of property wide mineralization.

GEOLOGY

Mineralization in the La Silla District, which includes properties not currently held by Riverside, is widespread with many small mines, workings and indications of high-grade gold-bearing quartz veins. Precious and base metal mineralization is hosted within quartz veins, vein stockworks and breccia, similar to other mining districts in the belt including the San Dimas Mine (Primero Mining Corp.) and the Nuestra Señora Operation (Americas Silver Corporation). Individual veins in La Silla range in width from less than 0.5 to 12.0 meters, with stockwork zones locally up to 60.0 meters in width. There are a total of 31 veins identified in the La Silla District with a total strike length of 13.2 km. At least 6 vein systems totaling over 5.6 km in length occur within Riverside’s newly acquired concessions.

Riverside Owned Projects

Cecilia Gold Project

Cecilia

Riverside has acquired the option to earn 100% of two large mining concessions, creating the consolidated Cecilia gold project. The project’s concessions were previously owned by Gunpoint and Millrock Resources. The project is a low-sulphidation epithermal gold-silver project and has seen significant exploration including drilling by past owners.

Tajitos Gold Project

The 61 km² Tajitos Gold Project is located in the heart of the Sonora-Mojave Megashear Gold Belt. The Project was acquired by Riverside from a private owner and is owned 100% with no underlying royalties. Since acquiring the property, Riverside has completed multiple surface and underground sampling and mapping programs and has staked additional ground (Tejo & Cortez claims) to expand the land package. Initial exploration with Centerra is expected to include further geophysics and trenching followed by a 2nd phase with drilling.
