ASHBURTON ANNOUNCES ATHABASCA BASIN WORK PROGRAMS

ASHBURTON ANNOUNCES ATHABASCA BASIN WORK PROGRAMS 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

May 30th, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces work programs for its uranium prospects, the Sienna North and West projects, set to commence in the coming weeks in the Athabasca Basin. First phase plans for both Athabasca Basin Uranium exploration Projects include conducting a property wide reconnaissance and exploration program comprised of grid based (cut and surveyed grid lines/stations) geophysical (scintillometer) surveys, soil sampling, springs sampling (radon), and float prospecting (U3O8).  The Phase I exploration program will allow Ashburton to assess current property conditions (access potential, swamp/muskeg, and lithological exposure) as well as conduct uranium exploration activities which will culminate in the planning and outlaying of a follow-up Phase II exploration program as well as the commencement of permit applications towards diamond drill testing of each of the Sienna North and West Projects. 

A number of historic regional airborne surveys are available in the public domain for the property areas and on a more detailed level, a bid is currently out with Aeroquest for Sienna North/West Property based airborne surveys (in conjunction with a larger survey of other contiguous property holders). Airborne anomalies located from review of such surveys will be considered high-priority targets for the Phase II program.

ASHBURTON ACQUIRES CLAIMS ADJOINING DOUBLEVIEW CU-AU PROJECT, BRITISH COLUMBIA 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

May 28th, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C.ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces today that it has staked mineral tenures adjacent to the Doubleview Capital Corp.’s (TSX-V: DBV) Hat Cu-Au property located in the prolific Stikine district of northwestern British Columbia. Doubleview recently announced commencement of a 2,000m drill hole program (see Doubleview Capital Corp. news release, May 2nd, 2013). The Hackett claims adjoin the eastern border of the Hat property, and cover 852 contiguous hectares. Volcanic-sedimentary assemblages and intrusive rocks on the property are similar and are believed to be part of the Stuhini Group, presently the focus of heightened exploration activity in northern British Columbia. Historical aeromagnetics for the project identified a magnetic high on the southern portion of the claims (B.C. Minfile Report #18158, 1988). Additional historical data are under review, in anticipation of mapping, sampling and geophysics to take place this summer.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Dr. Tom E. McCandless, P. Geo., Vice President, Exploration for Ashburton and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The property has not been the subject of a National Instrument 43-101 report, and Dr. McCandless has not verified the technical data disclosed in this release

The Company further announces it will not be proceeding with the option agreement with CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. announced April 25th, 2013.

(TSX-V: CXO) North Rok property located near Iskut, B.C. Colorado Resources recently announced a drill hole intercept averaging 0.5% Cu and 0.67 g/t Au over 333 meters (see Colorado Resources news release, April 25th,2013), and the new tenure is positioned roughly six kilometers north-northwest along the highway from that discovery. Including the 100%-owned Zetu claims that adjoin the northern border of the North Rok property (see Ashburton news release, May 2nd, 2013), the Company now controls roughly 1,500 hectares in this exciting new area play. Both acquisitions have been reported as having monzonite and volcanic lithologies that are similar to those presently being drilled at North Rok (B.C. Minfile Report 21760, 1992).

To earn 100% interest in the property, the Company will pay $15,000 and issue 1.3 million shares on regulatory approval and completion of a financing, with $15,000 payable and 1.3 million shares issued on or before the 1st anniversary. The earn-in is subject to a 2% NSR, of which 1% may be purchased back for $1M dollars. A finder’s fee may be payable. This transaction is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

(TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces today it has acquired a 100% interest in mineral tenures adjacent to the Colorado Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: CXO) North Rok property located near Iskut, B.C. Colorado Resources recently announced a drill hole intercept of 333 meters (from 2-335m) averaging 0.5% Cu and 0.67 g/t Au (see Colorado Resources news release, April 25th,2013). Mineralization on the Rok property occurs in porphyry-style altered monzonite and volcanic rocks, and similar lithologies occur on the Zetu claims (B.C. Minfile Report 21760, 1992). The claims total approximately 1,200 hectares, with historic reports indicating that roads crossed the acquired ground. With several areas of mapped monzonite in contact with andesitic rocks, the acquired ground has good initial geologic targets for exploration work. The acquisition was made by paying staking costs to a third party staker.
