During the fall of 2010, Revolution personnel collected eight grab samples from a 20 meter long, 10 meter wide area of outcrop. Select samples include 6.23 g/t Au and 273 g/t Ag, 4.05 g/t Au and 130 g/t Ag, and 1.76 g/t Au and 898 g/t Ag. Samples range from trace values, to 6.23 g/t Au and 898 g/t Ag, averaging 1.8 g/t Au and 189.5 g/t Ag.

The Company is mobilizing a second diamond drill rig to its Champion Hills Project, located in the Carolina Slate Belt, North Carolina. The widespread extent of gold mineralization identified to-date at Champion Hills has encouraged the Company to accelerate the exploration program. This 5,000 metre drill program will test targets that have never received previous drilling and will drill test additional targets at the Loflin and Jones-Keystone areas, where mineralization remains wide open to expansion in all directions. The second drill rig is expected to be on site during mid to late June 2011.

Jones-Keystone
The second rig will be used to infill and expand results from the Jones-Keystone and Loflin targets, where Revolution recently announced thick intervals of gold mineralization, including: hole JK11-017, 40.0 meters averaging 2.33 g/t Au within an interval of 104.0 meters averaging 1.27 g/t Au (see news release issued April 13, 2011). Mineralization has been traced for over 750 meters along strike and is open in all directions. The objective of this drilling will be to provide enough drill density to complete an initial NI 43101 resource estimate.

Jones-Keystone mineralization is located along the same structural corridor as the Loflin Prospect located 2,700 meters to the west. Recently announced initial drill results from Loflin include: 70.0 meters averaging 1.10 g/t Au and 30.0 meters averaging 2.59 g/t Au (See RV News Release 2011, January 6th, 2011).

Revolution received results from the final hole at the Jones-Keystone target. JK11-023 intercepted 50 meters averaging 0.98 g/t Au, including 22.0 meters of 1.5 g/t Au.

Revolution currently has seven major target areas located on the 25 kilometer long Champion Hills trend. The Company will shortly announce drill results from the Silver Hill and Silver Valley Au-Ag-Zn-Cu volcanogenic massive sulphide targets, located on the western portion of the trend.

Jericho Hill
The Jericho Hill target (previously Kearns Prospect) is a newly discovered occurrence of gold and silver rich altered and veined sediments, with no previous known history of exploration or lode production. The area has been historically mined for alluvial gold. During the fall of 2010, Revolution personnel collected eight grab samples from a 20 meter long, 10 meter wide area of outcrop. Select samples include 6.23 g/t Au and 273 g/t Ag, 4.05 g/t Au and 130 g/t Ag, and 1.76 g/t Au and 898 g/t Ag. Samples range from trace values, to 6.23 g/t Au and 898 g/t Ag, averaging 1.8 g/t Au and 189.5 g/t Ag.

About the Champion Hills Project
The Champion Hills Property is comprised of multiple historic pits and workings within a 25 kilometer long trend in North Carolina. The Project occurs within the Carolina Slate Belt, which hosts most of the major gold mines in the southeastern U.S. Significant deposits include the Ridgeway Mine, which produced 1.5 million ounces of gold from 1988 to 1999, and Romarco’s Haile Mine project. The Champion Hills project is geologically analogous to these deposits, whereby gold mineralization is hosted within quartz-sericite-pyrite altered volcanic rocks, associated with northeast trending shear zones.

Minimal modern exploration has occurred in the Carolina Slate Belt, generally due to previous complex land tenure. Gold was discovered in Champion Hills in the early 1800’s, with small scale production from many small operations. Mining continued in the area through the 1930’s depression era. Noranda explored Champion Hills for shallow, open-pit gold deposits from 1989 to 1992, completing 23 core holes totalling 2,936 meters. This drilling encountered multiple drill intercepts ranging between 0.5 to 1.3 g/t Au over long intervals, including several holes that were abandoned in mineralization at depth. Complete historic results can be viewed at revolutionresourcescorp.com/.

About Revolution
Revolution’s 2011 exploration program at Champion Hills is performed under the supervision of Robert McLeod, P.Geo, Director of Revolution and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Drill cores are cut in half using a diamond saw, with one half placed in sealed bags, and delivered to ALS-Chemex facilities in Reno, Nevada. A sample quality control/quality assurance program utilizing standards and blanks, as well as third-party check labs has been implemented. Contents of this release were prepared by and approved for release by Mr. McLeod.
