April 28th, 2010, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V) (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) reports that the assay results have been received from the 1,006 m diamond drill program completed in March, 2010 on the Chukuni property in Red Lake, Ontario.  While the drill program was a technical success in explaining the source of the IP anomalies as above average sulphide concentrations the program did not encounter significant gold values.

Drill hole CH10-04 did encounter anomalous Pyrite-Chalcopyrite mineralization in the form of stringers and disseminations in a weak discontinuous alteration envelope of chlorite and staurolite over a core length of 95 m.
