ASHBURTON CREATES STRATEGIC ALLIANCE AND PREPARES TO COMMENCE RADON SURVEY AT SIENNA WEST URANIUM PROJECT, ATHABASCA BASIN, SASKATCHEWAN

ASHBURTON CREATES STRATEGIC ALLIANCE AND PREPARES TO COMMENCE RADON SURVEY AT SIENNA WEST URANIUM PROJECT, ATHABASCA BASIN, SASKATCHEWAN 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

June 10th, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces it has formed an alliance and will be working closely with Alpha-Track Uranium Services (Osoyoos, B.C.) to commence a  radon cup survey on its Sienna West project. Sienna West covers an area of historic Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) lake sediment samples that range from 3.9ppm to 7.69ppm uranium, with the distance between the two lakes that were sampled being approximately two kilometers. This program is expected to commence in 14 days.

The use of radon detectors to identify uranium mineralization was an integral step leading to the Alpha Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: AMW) and Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: FIS) Patterson Lake South (PLS) discoveries.  As stated in their May 6, 2013 news release; “Fission Uranium Corp., the operator at PLS, and its 50-per-cent joint venture partner Alpha Minerals Inc., have released results from an extension of the previous radon survey in January to February, 2013, that led to the target selection of the first high-grade holes drilled at zones R390E and R780E at Patterson Lake South, including hole PLS13-038.”

Radon is derived from uranium and thorium, but is a gas and has much greater mobility than uranium and thorium, which are fixed as solids in minerals. Radon migrates upward to the surface through fractures in rocks, and between grains of soil. The amount of radon and the ease with which it moves upward determines how much radon is detected at the surface. If radon is present and has open space to move through, it can travel a great distance before it decays, and be detected at the surface above a uranium occurrence.

ASHBURTON FILES FOR DRILL PERMITS ON ZETU AND NEROK CLAIMS IN THE ISKUT CU-AU DISTRICT, BRITISH COLUMBIA

ASHBURTON FILES FOR DRILL PERMITS ON ZETU AND NEROK CLAIMS IN THE ISKUT CU-AU DISTRICT, BRITISH COLUMBIA 150 150 Progressive Planet Inc.

June 5th, 2013, VANCOUVER, B.C.ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) has filed for drill permits on its mineral tenures located near the Colorado Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: CXO) North Rok property, in the Iskut copper-gold district. The Iskut district is located in northwestern British Columbia and has seen significant exploration activity since the announcement by Colorado Resources of 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). Most recently, Victory Ventures, Inc. (TSX-V: VVN) announced plans for a five-hole drill program centered on a geophysical anomaly defined by IP chargeability (see Victory Ventures news release, June 3rd, 2013). IP geophysics has played a significant role in identifying drill targets in the Iskut district.

The 100%-owned Zetu claims adjoin the northern border of the North Rok property, and the Nerock tenure is positioned roughly six kilometers north-northwest along the highway from the Colorado Resources discovery.  The tenures total 1,500 hectares and have monzonite and volcanic lithologies that are similar to those presently being drilled at North Rok (B.C. Minfile Report 21760, 1992). Drilling is anticipated to take place after generation of drill targets through mapping, sampling and IP geophysics.
