Riverside Resources Stakes the Compuerta Copper Project in Sonora, Mexico 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 3, 2014) - Riverside
Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX
VENTURE:RRI)(PINKSHEETS:RVSDF)(FRANKFURT:R99) is pleased to announce that the
Company has staked and is in the process of acquiring title to the Compuerta
Copper Project (the "Project") in Sonora, Mexico. The Project will
now be advanced under the terms of the Company's copper porphyry
exploration alliance (the "Alliance") with a wholly owned subsidiary
of Antofagasta plc. ("Antofagasta"). The Project is located 6 km
south of the Washington Cu-Mo deposit and 75 km SW of the La Caridad Cu-Mo
Mine, part of the most productive portion of the NW Mexico Laramide Copper
Belt. Early results from initial rock chip sampling conducted by Riverside have
returned up to 0.7% copper (Cu) from outcrops and the Company has received
initial approvals from Antofagasta for additional funding to carry out further
exploration and target definition at Compuerta, subject to execution of an
earn-in and option agreement. 
Exploration plans are anticipated to include further geological mapping and
geochemistry, with an airborne geophysical survey and proof-of-concept drilling
as potential next steps. As per the Alliance terms, Antofagasta will have the
opportunity to earn a 65% interest in the Compuerta Project by completing
$5,000,000 in exploration over the next four (4) years (see news release July
22, 2013). 
Riverside's President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, commented: "We are
very pleased with the progress within both of our strategic alliances with
Antofagasta, and look forward to exploration results in northwest Mexico at
Compuerta and in British Columbia, Canada at Swift Katie in the months
Property Details:  
The 200 km2 Compuerta Project is located 6 km south of the high grade
Washington Cu-Mo deposit (1.2Mt @ 1.8% Cu, 0.106% Mo)(1) in the Cumobabi
District of north central Sonora. This District is positioned close to the
productive Laramide Copper Belt, with the La Caridad Mine (1200Mt @ 0.6 %
Cu)(2) located 75 km to the NE.

Riverside staked the Compuerta property based on successful generative efforts
and follow-up field surveys, which identified Laramide age intrusive rocks with
previously unrecorded copper mineralization and zoned alteration consistent
with a Cu porphyry system. These surface expressions of a system are located at
the edge of cover and aeromagnetic data and alteration zoning suggest the
target extends under cover to the west. Riverside has collected rock chip and
stream-sediment samples during follow up visits which now confirm visual
indications of a copper system with multiple samples returning greater than
0.1% Cu and up to 0.7% Cu.
