Vancouver, British Columbia - February 4th , 2008. Riverside Resources (TSX-Venture: RRI) is pleased to announce the results of its 2007 diamond drill program at Scheelite Dome in the Tintina Gold Belt, Yukon. The five-hole, 601.42 meter program focused on the Aorta structural corridor, an east-west striking zone of gently-dipping monzonite dikes and intrusion-related gold mineralization. Results, listed below, include several ten meter intervals of potentially ore grade gold mineralization and one high-grade interval.

Previous drill holes into the Aorta structural corridor returned similar long intervals of gold mineralization including 54.9 meters of 0.45 g/t (RC97-11), 43.4 meters of 0.56 g/t (SH98-10), 20.3 meters at 1.03 g/t (SH99-23), 8.9 meters of 1.81 g/t (SH99-24), and 15.8 meters of 1.88 g/t (SH98-12). When combined with the 2007 program, these intercepts demonstrate continuity of low-grade, near-surface gold mineralization along the Aorta structural corridor.

The target at Scheelite Dome is an intrusion-related gold deposit similar to Fort Knox and/or Dublin Gulch. A 2007 technical report for the Fort Knox mine reports proven and probable reserves of 159.67 million tonnes at 0.53 g/t gold. A 2006 technical report on the Dublin Gulch deposit reports an indicated mineral resource of 66.5 million tonnes at 0.916 g/t gold. Both reports are NI 43-101 compliant.

Analyses were performed by ACME Labs using aqua regia digestion on a 15 gram sample followed by ICP-MS analysis. Carl Nelson, VP Exploration for Riverside Resources, is the qualified person responsible for ensuring that the geologic information provided in this news release is accurate.

Riverside has an option to earn a 65% interest in the 108 kmĀ² Scheelite Dome property from Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. (TSX-Venture: KRX), the current operator. Maps and cross sections will be posted on the web site soon.

We seek safe harbor.
