ASHBURTON SIGNIFICANTLY EXPANDS LITHIUM LAND POSITION COVERING HISTORIC LITHIUM SHOWINGS

August 27th, 2015, VANCOUVER, B.C. ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired additional ground contiguous to its recently announced GC West property, known as the “Boulder Property”, which covers the main GC lepidolite showing.

The Boulder Property covers 18 unit claims totaling 904 acres (366 hectares), which now increases Ashburton’s land position to 1,457 acres (590 hectares), located approximately 14 kilometers W-NW of Revelstoke, BC, Canada. This new addition encompasses the “GC” lepidolite Minfile showing, which is comprised of a coarse-grained lepidolite-bearing (lithium mica) pegmatite dike hosted within a mica schist. Additionally, the GC showing is also prospective for gemstones.

The Boulder Property has seen only limited exploration activity. Sampling taken in 2013 returned values of >2000 ppm lithium (indicating the samples exceeded detection range) from two samples in the GC showing area (BC Assessment Report #34293). The property was also mapped in 1968 by G.A. Wilson (BC Assessment Report #1794), however the program was directed at copper, zinc, and molybdenum mineralization and no samples were assayed for lithium.

“The encouraging lithium numbers from past sampling that covered the prospect makes for an exciting opportunity for Ashburton’s near and long term growth. The prior sampling results show significant grades of lithium bearing host rock. Combining these claims with our previously announced claims on August 19th gives Ashburton an exciting target to exploit. We anticipate work to commence in the immediate future.”

The acquisition terms to acquire a 100% interest in the Boulder property are cumulative cash payments of $15,500 plus 2.7 million shares over 24 months. A 2% NSR will be granted to the vendor with an option to purchase back one percent for one million dollars.  The vendor will retain precious and semi precious stones rights discovered on the property.

About Lepidolite (Lithium)

Lepidolite mica is a uncommon mica and ore of lithium. It typically forms in granitic masses that contain high amounts of lithium. Lepidolite has been mined In Canada at the Tanco Mine, Bernic Lake, Manitoba. There is active research directed at more efficient processing of lepidolite ores by companies such as Lithium Australia NL (previously Cobre Montana NL) of Australia.

Lithium has numerous industrial applications, in products such as heat-resistant glass and ceramics, lithium grease lubricants, and flux additives for iron, steel, and aluminum production. More recent and better-known applications of lithium are for use in battery applications as it has the highest electric output per unit weight of any battery material. Lithium-ion batteries are the default choice for most personal electronics and most electric cars today such incuding the Tesla cars. The advent of these new applications has resulted in rapid growth projections for the sector, along with high demand for new deposits.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Mr. Case Lewis, P.Geo., director of Ashburton and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

ASHBURTON ACQUIRES NEW LITHIUM CLAIMS

August 19th, 2015, VANCOUVER, B.C. ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired the GC West property, prospective for lithium mineralization, approximately 14 kilometers west- northwest of the City of Revelstoke, B.C.

The GC West property is located approximately 135 meters west of the “GC” lepidolite Minfile occurrence (BC Minfile 082M 024). The GC occurrence is comprised of a coarse-grained, lepidolite-bearing (lithium mica) pegmatite dike hosted within a mica schist. These occur within a gneiss unit which trends from the GC occurrence onto Ashburton’s GC West property, according to historic reports (B.C. Assessment File # 1794).  Since the historic work in 1968, no further exploration activity had been reported in the area until the adjacent property, host to the GC showing, was sampled in 2013.

The company intends to commence a work program shortly to trace the lepidolite-bearing unit onto its GC West property and to delineate prospective areas for economic lithium mineralization.

Lithium-ion batteries are the default choice for most personal electronics and most electric cars today such incuding the Tesla cars. The advent of these new applications has resulted in rapid growth projections for the sector, along with high demand for new deposits.

“The acquisition of the GC West property represents our initial step in building our lithium assets," stated Mike England, President of Ashburton. "There is a strong indication that the lithium bearing pegmatite mapped and sampled on the adjacent property trends unto the GC West claims. Demand for lithium deposits is strong and expected to increase significantly in the near term, and progress made on the processing of lepidolite ores makes this style of mineralization an attractive exploration target. Management is very optimistic about the potential of this new prospect and plans an aggressive work program shortly.”

Purchase price of the GC West Property, from two arm's-length vendors for a 100% interest, is 2.2 million shares. A 0.5% Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) will be granted, which can be purchased at the Company’s option for $250,000.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Mr. Case Lewis, P.Geo., director of Ashburton and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

April 23rd, 2014, VANCOUVER, B.C.ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (TSX-V: ABR) (ARB-FRANKFURT) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) announces it is arranging an initial work program to commence the 2015 field season on its 100% owned Hackett property in the Sheslay Valley. The Hackett property is contiguous to the Doubleview Capital Corp. (TSX-V: DBV) Hat Cu-Au property.

The 2,130 hectare Hackett claim group adjoins the eastern and northern borders of the Hat property.  During last season flyovers at Hackett, a large gossanous zone along the western portion of the property was observed from the air and will now be the subject of an early work program. The western edge of Hackett is within 1,000 metres of Doubleview’s discovery drill holes that indicate the strong potential for a copper-gold alkalic porphyry-type deposit (see Doubleview Capital Corp. news release, February 3, 2015).    

Approximately 300 metres west of the Hackett, on the Doubleview ground adjoining the southwestern border of the Hackett property, assays from the historical Hoey showing report up to 6,600 parts per billion Au and historical aeromagnetics on the Hackett property define a magnetic high on the southern claims (W. Thompson, 1988, B.C. Minfile report No. 18158). No drilling has ever been carried out on this property.

“We look forward to resuming work on the Hackett property this season.” states Mike England, CEO of Ashburton Ventures. “The Sheslay region of B.C. is an exciting area and with the success to date of Doubleview’s Hat project, and our proximity to their discovery, we feel we have excellent potential here.”

The technical contents of this release were approved by Ashburton director Case Lewis, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
