Exeter Reports on Drilling at Angeles-Expands Potential of Mineralized Structure

Exeter Reports on Drilling at Angeles-Expands Potential of Mineralized Structure 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/13 -- Exeter
Resource Corp ("Exeter" or "the Company") (TSX:XRC)(NYSE
MKT:XRA)(NYSE Amex:XRA)(FRANKFURT:EXB) is pleased to announce
additional results from the Company's initial exploration drilling
campaign at the Angeles property in northern Sonora state, Mexico. 
Since drilling commenced in April, 8 holes have been completed at the
La Bonanza zone and 4 at the La Verde zone, 1.1 km to the west of La
Bonanza. Recent drill results from La Verde are encouraging, adding
additional evidence that the gold/silver/base metal system continues
on trend between La Bonanza and La Verde at depth. Surface
mineralization at Angeles on the main structure has been identified
over a total of 3.0 km of strike length.  
Subsequent to previously released drilling at La Bonanza zone, one
additional hole, AD13-08, was completed, down dip from holes AD13-03
and AD13-07 (see news release dated May 23, 2013). Highlights of
assay results from this hole include:

Higher silver values and moderately lower gold and base metal values
in the Angeles structure at La Verde, suggests drilling to date at La
Verde is within an area of different metal zoning than that
encountered in drilling at La Bonanza. Studies designed to vector to
higher grade gold zones within the system, are ongoing. Drill hole
assay results within the main mineralized structure at La Verde
include:

Drilling recently recommenced at the La Bonanza zone. Additional
drilling is designed to test the Angeles mineralized system on 150 m
to 200 m step outs along strike (east and west) from previous
drilling.  
The current program, which is about 70% complete, is part of Exeter's
$1 million committed exploration program at Angeles. The program is
largely related to a planned 2,500 m of drilling at the La Bonanza
and La Verde target areas, pursuant to an agreement whereby Exeter
can earn up to 70% in the Angeles property. For agreement details see
Exeter's news release dated March 4, 2013. 
Notes: 
1. A silver to gold ratio of 50:1 was used for gold equivalent
("AuEq") calculations. Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter
returns are assumed to be 100% for these calculations. 
2. Drill intervals reported are down hole intercepts. True widths are
yet to be determined but are interpreted to range between 75-100%. 
3. San Marco Resources is the project operator until Exeter earns an
initial 51% interest. 
4. Copper, lead and zinc values are not included in AuEq
calculations. 
5. Drill core recovery of the announced mineralized zones is
generally greater than 90%, unless otherwise noted.  
6. Drilling is proceeding with HQ drill core unless otherwise noted. 
7. Assay intervals were selected using visuals of geology and
mineralization, therefore no cut-off grade was used. 
8. Drill hole LV-03 did not intersect significant mineralization.  
Quality Control and Assurance 
Blanks and certified standards were inserted into the sample stream
as part of San Marco's quality assurance and control program, which
complies with National Instrument 43-101 requirements. Core samples
are split using a hydraulic splitter, with one half retained in
secure storage for logging, and the other half sent to ALS Chemex Lab
in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. All samples are prepared using the
PREP -31 method. 125 gram pulps are sent to ALS Chemex Lab. in
Vancouver, B.C. A 30 gram split is analyzed for gold, using the
Au-AA23 method. Sample results greater than 10 ppm are re-assayed,
using AA23 fire assay and gravimetric finish. For silver, copper,
lead and zinc, a multi-element, four acid digestion (ME - ICP 61 is
used. For initial assays of silver greater than 100 ppm, copper, lead
and zinc greater than 10,000 ppm (over limits), the OG62 method is
used for re-analysis. 
Matthew Williams, Exeter's Exploration Manager and a "qualified
person" ("QP") within the definition of that term in National
Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has
verified the technical information that forms the basis for this news
release. 
About Exeter 
Exeter is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company. Its
principal focus is the advancement of its 100% owned Caspiche
gold-copper project in Chile. Caspiche is one of the largest
undeveloped gold-copper deposits in the America's and is situated in
the Maricunga gold district, between the Maricunga mine (Kinross Gold
Corp.) and the Cerro Casale gold-copper deposit (Barrick Gold Corp.
and Kinross Gold Corp.). The Company continues to evaluate new
opportunities related to the advancement of Caspiche, and new
industry wide opportunities with the objective of securing
properties, which offer near term discovery potential.  
Exeter has completed pre-feasibility studies that demonstrate the
potential for commercializing Caspiche. The Company currently has
cash reserves of CAD$45 million and no debt.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors - The information
contained herein and incorporated by reference herein has been
prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities
laws, which differ from the requirements of United States securities
laws. In particular, the term "resource" does not equate to the term
"reserve". The Securities Exchange Commission's (the "SEC")
disclosure standards normally do not permit the inclusion of
information concerning "measured mineral resources", "indicated
mineral resources" or "inferred mineral resources" or other
descriptions of the amount of mineralization in mineral deposits that
do not constitute "reserves" by U.S. standards, unless such
information is required to be disclosed by the law of the Company's
jurisdiction of incorporation or of a jurisdiction in which its
securities are traded. U.S. investors should also understand that
"inferred mineral resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to
their existence and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal
feasibility. Disclosure of "contained ounces" is permitted disclosure
under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits
issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute "reserves"
by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to
unit measures.  
NEITHER THE TSX NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS
DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE
ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS NEWS RELEASE.
