(ABR-TSX:V)
(“Ashburton” or the “Company”)


announces that results
from the Induced Polarization survey have now been received by their consultant
for the Chukuni Property in Red Lake, Ontario.   Compilation of the data has identified five potential
drill targets based on coincident chargeability/resistivity anomalies.  The potential targets include chargeable/resistive
zones in the interpreted fold nose of the Howey Diorite, the Diorite/Mafic
Volcanic contact plus sulphide bearing zones within the Mafic Volcanic unit to
the north of the Howey intrusive.   

A follow up work program is now underway to
prioritize the targets via prospecting over the geophysical anomalies.  Where outcrop is lacking soil sampling will
be undertaken to evaluate the anomalies.

The Chukuni
property lies 3.5 km south of Goldcorp’s Red Lake-Campbell Mine Complex, currently
one of Canada’s largest and richest Archean gold deposits. Goldcorp’s Red
Lake-Campbell Mine Complex produced 629,000 ounces of gold in 2008.
