June 22nd, 2011, VANCOUVER, B.C. – ASHBURTON VENTURES INC. (ABR-TSX:V) (ARB-FRANKFURT)  (“Ashburton” or the "Company”) is pleased to announce that the 2011 work program has been established and mobilization to the site will begin prior to July 1st, 2011. The White Gold property is situated north of and immediately contiguous with the “Golden Saddle” claim groups where Underworld Resources had their new gold discoveries in 2009. This property area was then acquired by Kinross Gold Corp in early 2010.

The area of the White Gold Property was soil sampled in 2009 and the results from this sampling campaign have highlighted a significant gold, copper, zinc and arsenic northwest-southeast trend that extends across the Ashburton claims to the boundary of the Kinross White Gold claims. The 2011 White Gold property exploration includes trenching with detailed mapping and sampling followed by a selective drill program.

UTM Exploration Services Ltd. of Smithers, BC has been contracted to provide exploration support and geological services for White Gold.

The technical contents of this release were approved by Dr. Tom McCandless, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration for Ashburton and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Ashburton Ventures is a junior exploration company actively seeking mineral opportunities for the benefit of all its stakeholders.
