Riverside Signs Definitive Agreement and Outlines Exploration Plans at the Swift Katie Project in British Columbia, Canada

Riverside Signs Definitive Agreement and Outlines Exploration Plans at the 
Swift Katie Project in British Columbia, Canada 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 --  
Riverside Resources Inc. ("Riverside" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:
RRI)(PINKSHEETS: RVSDF)(FRANKFURT: R99) is pleased to announce that
Riverside Resources (BC) Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of
Riverside, has signed a Definitive Agreement with Valterra Resource
Corporation ("Valterra"), for the exclusive right and option to
acquire an undivided 80% interest in the Swift Katie Property (the
"Property"). This agreement will be undertaken as part of Riverside's
exploration alliance with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Antofagasta
plc ("Antofagasta"). Swift Katie is an 80km2 copper-gold-silver
porphyry property located seven kilometres southwest of the town of
Salmo, BC, in the Nelson Mining District. The Property has
approximately 80 drill holes, completed between 1987 and 2010, of
which the majority were drilled to define the Katie copper-gold
porphyry deposit; the Katie deposit to date has been tested over a
2.5km by 1.5km area but remains open in several directions. (See
Project Details below for more information.) 
Antofagasta has approved an initial Year 1 budget of $600,000 for a
summer 2014 exploration program which will include mapping,
prospecting, soil sampling and follow-up diamond drill testing of
highly prospective areas within a 3km by 11km corridor of favourable
geology, geochemistry and geophysics. The program will be designed to
evaluate, delineate and test copper-gold porphyry targets outboard of
historically defined zones. Encouraging results obtained from due
diligence work completed by Riverside in the fall of 2013 identified
a new, high priority target 2km south of the historically defined
Katie copper-gold porphyry deposit. The newly identified "Swift"
porphyry target is characterized by a 2km by 2km multi-element soil
anomaly underlain by a favourable geophysical signature; this
forested area has limited outcrop but porphyritic intrusive rocks and
altered volcanic rocks were recognized by Riverside geologists within
and adjacent to the target area. The program will aim to discover new
areas of copper-porphyry mineralization through drilling and
geochemistry moving towards an aggressive Year 2 exploration program
in 2015. 
President and CEO of Riverside Resources, John-Mark Staude,
commented: "We look forward to working up and refining drill targets
along the highly prospective porphyry corridor at Swift Katie. We
anticipate the program to commence in late spring and progress
towards drill testing during the summer months."

dated October 31, 2013. 
Swift Katie Property Details: 
The Property is located within the well-mineralized Quesnel Terrane,
in a geologically favourable area of south-eastern British Columbia
that historically has hosted several important mining camps. Three
mineral showings are located within the Property and for many years
were explored separately in claims with different ownership; the
claims were amalgamated into a single property for the first time
under Valterra. There have been numerous geological, geochemical and
geophysical surveys completed on the Property with some of the most
significant work funded by subsidiaries of Noranda and Falconbridge
in the 1980s-90s. These programs identified several exploration
targets, with the most advanced prospect being the Katie deposit, an
alkalic copper-gold porphyry deposit which has been tested by 71
drillholes to date and remains open in several directions. Historic
drilling at the Katie occurrence covers an approximately 2.5km x
1.5km area with several untested soil, IP, magnetic and resistivity
anomalies in close proximity to known mineralization.  
At a district-scale, the Property covers an 11km by 3km trend - as
seen in airborne magnetics - that remains virtually unexplored
(outside of the Katie occurrence) for copper-porphyry targets to date
and hosts significant exploration upside and potential for new
discoveries. The Property is located in an infrastructure-rich area
of southern BC (roads, rail, power, and proximity to the Trail
smelter), where a milder climate allows for a long field season,
extensive road networks allow for low-cost exploration, and is
situated in a favourable region of the province that has a strong
community of experienced people on which to draw.
