– ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V)
(ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the
“Company”)


is pleased to announce that the 2011
work program has been established and mobilization to the site will begin prior
to July 1st, 2011. The White Gold property is situated north of and
immediately contiguous with the “Golden Saddle” claim groups where Underworld
Resources had their new gold discoveries in 2009. This property area was then
acquired by Kinross Gold Corp in early 2010.



The
area of the White Gold Property was soil sampled in 2009 and the results from
this sampling campaign have highlighted a significant gold, copper, zinc and
arsenic northwest-southeast trend that extends across the Ashburton claims to
the boundary of the Kinross White Gold claims. The 2011 White Gold property
exploration includes trenching with detailed mapping and sampling followed by a
selective drill program.



UTM
Exploration Services Ltd. of Smithers, BC has been contracted to provide
exploration support and geological services for White Gold.
