Riverside Resources Inc. (“Riverside” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:RRI) is pleased to provide an update on the Ariel Copper Project (the “Project”) which comprises a 1,242-hectare mining concession located in northeastern Sonora, along the most productive copper belt in Mexico. Riverside holds 100% of the mineral rights to the concession and has conducted generative exploration work, which was funded through the exploration alliance with Antofagasta (see press release February 29, 2016).
As quoted in the press release:
Riverside’s President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated:“We are pleased that results of our reconnaissance fieldwork at Ariel are supportive of the possible existence of porphyry copper mineralization. Riverside continues to build upon our alliance funded work to expand the targets defined. The Project, which was acquired through claim staking at minimal cost, is ready for follow-up exploration programs. Riverside continues to progress with the Project Generator business model and uses our team of experienced geologists to acquire and work up highly prospective assets.”
