Riverside Resources and Partner Mexigold Corp. Begin 2,000 meter Drill Program at the Catrina Gold Project in Durango, Mexico
November 22, 2011 – Vancouver, BC: Riverside Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX-V: RRI) is pleased to report that drilling has commenced at the Catrina Gold Project in Durango, Mexico. Riverside and partner Mexigold Corp (TSX-V: MAU) recently completed trenching at Catrina (Mexigold Press Release, November 9, 2011), the results of which were interpreted as showing two previously identified key targets (Catrina and La Dura) as being connected as one large open pit style gold-silver target. The connected Catrina-La Dura target is a northeast trending target covering a 1400 meter long by 500 meter wide area, and will be one of the focuses of the current drill testing.
The drill program will test the coincident geology, geochemistry and geophysical anomalies identified at the Catrina-La Dura and Patos target areas. This drill program will consist of eight angled core holes for a total of 2,000 metres, and will test three of the existing six targets on the property.
“Riverside and Mexigold are now testing another gold-silver property in Riverside’s portfolio of over 14 projects in Mexico. This drill program is aimed at Penasquito style breccia mineralization and Camino Rojo style disseminated gold in siltstones. The Patos area with the fault structures and apparent feeder zone could host a newly identified gold district,” stated John-Mark Staude, President and CEO of Riverside Resources Inc.
