DRILLING FURTHER EXTENDS MINERALIZATION AT EXETER'S CASPICHE GOLD-COPPER PORPHYRY PROJECT IN CHILE

Vancouver, B.C., January 13, 2009 - Exeter Resource Corporation (AMEX:XRA, TSX-V:XRC, Frankfurt:EXB - "Exeter" or the "Company") reports further lateral and depth extensions to the known gold-copper system at its Caspiche project in the Maricunga district, Chile. Drilling results include 372.0 meters (1,220.2 feet) at a grade of 0.85 grams per tonne gold (0.025 ounces per ton) and 0.47% copper, in drill hole CSD028. The deposit remains open to the south, northwest and at depth. New results include:

CSD028, drilled to test the southwestern limits of mineralization, which intersected:

  • 862.1 metres ("m") (2,827.7 feet ("ft")) at a grade of 0.54 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold (0.016 ounces per ton ("oz/ton")) and 0.29% copper, from a depth of 208.0 m (682.2 ft), to the bottom of the hole, in the primary gold-copper zone, including,
  • 372.0 m (1,220.2 ft) at a grade of 0.85 g/t gold (0.025 oz/ton) and 0.47% copper, from a down hole depth of 600.0 m (1,968.0 ft), and

CSD029, drilled to test the northeastern limits of mineralization, which intersected:

  • 72.0 m (236.2 ft) at a grade of 0.52 g/t gold (0.015 oz/ton), from a down hole depth of 66.0 m (216.5 ft) to 138.0 m (452.6 ft) in the oxide (gold only) zone followed by
  • 581.1 m (1,906.0 ft) at a grade of 0.50 g/t gold (0.015 oz/ton) and 0.19% copper, from a down hole depth of 138.0 m (452..6 ft) to the bottom of the hole, in the primary gold-copper zone.

Drill hole CSD028 is located 200 m (656 ft) to the southwest, and behind hole CSD016 (previously reported in a news release dated April 30, 2008 as 92 m (301.8 ft) at a grade of 0.41 g/t gold (0.012 oz/ton) in the oxide zone, followed by 626 m (2,053.3 ft) at a grade of 1.08 g/t gold (0.031 oz/ton) and 0.43% copper in the primary zone). Hole CSD028 demonstrates good vertical continuity of the mineralization and extends the known system to a depth of 900 m (2,952 ft).

Importantly, hole CSD028 identified a far more extensive zone of copper-rich mineralization than previously recognised, with intercepts greater than 200 m (656 ft) assaying over 0.5% copper. Overall hole CSD028 shows a significantly higher copper to gold ratio for the deeper part of the porphyry system (at least on this drill section).

Drill hole CSD029 is located 200 m (656 ft) to the northeast, and in front of hole CSD016. It extends the known limits of mineralization on this drill section by at least 150 m (492 ft) further to the northeast. Grade continuity of mineralization was again good, except for the final 20 m (65.6 ft) of the hole that assayed <0.25 g/t gold and <0.1% copper. This low grade rock is interpreted to represent the northeast edge of the system.

The upper half of hole CSD029 intersected strongly altered volcanic rocks, followed by early stage microdioritic intrusive rocks at depth. The fact that this hole did not intersect a significant width of "primary porphyry rock" demonstrates that potentially economic grades extend well into the wallrocks of the porphyry system.

Several holes are currently being drilled, logged or assayed (see Figure 1) and additional results will be released as they become available.

Exeter's Chairman, Yale Simpson, stated, "The results from hole CSD028 show excellent gold-copper grades continuing to below a depth of 900 metres (2,952 ft), with an unexpected increase in copper grades deeper in the porphyry system. This increase is not visually evident from our core logging of other drill sections.

"Our results to date continue to demonstrate the size potential of Caspiche and support our decision to "size the deposit" based on widely spaced drill holes. Both the oxide gold and primary gold-copper zones still remain open for expansion. Drilling is continuing, with three rigs operating on a 24 hour/day basis to meet a second quarter 2009 timeline for completing a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate."

Quality Control and Assurance
Drill intercepts presented above are drill intersection widths and may not represent the true widths of mineralization. Gold and copper assay results presented have not been calculated using a gold cut-off grade, or with any cutting of high values. All diamond drill core samples are split on regular two metre intervals and represent either sawn half HQ-size or NQ-size core. Reverse circulation drill samples are collected using a cyclone in one metre intervals; all samples are then composited into two or four metre samples. Gold samples were prepared and assayed by fire assay (50 gram charge).
Copper was assayed with a four acid digestion followed by atomic absorption spectroscopy. The primary laboratory is ALS Chemex in Chile, an ISO-9001:2000 certified laboratory. Standard, blank and duplicate samples are used throughout the sample sequence as checks for the exploratory reverse circulation and diamond drilling.

Justin Tolman, Exeter's Caspiche Project Manager and a "qualified person" within the definition of that term in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"), has supervised the preparation of the technical information contained in this news release.

About Exeter
Exeter Resource Corporation is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on the discovery and development of gold and silver properties in South America. The Company had $23 million in its treasury as at September 30, 2008.

The Caspiche gold-copper discovery is situated in the Maricunga gold district of Chile, between the Refugio mine (Kinross Gold Corp.) and the giant Cerro Casale gold deposit (Barrick Gold Corp. and Kinross Gold Corp.). Drilling is currently underway to produce an interim NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource estimate in the second quarter of 2009. The initial resource target is large, reflecting the scale of similar gold and/or gold-copper porphyry systems in the immediate area.

Exeter's priority on its Cerro Moro high grade gold-silver property in Argentina is to focus exploration on the Escondida vein, where drilling has returned multiple drill intercepts of 12-18 g/t gold equivalent* over potentially mineable widths. The results from current drilling will be used to produce a NI 43-101 compliant resources estimate, expected during the second quarter of 2009. Exeter will continue to develop its conceptual models so that on receipt of a NI 43-101 resources estimate, it can advance the project to the scoping study level.

No site work is planned on the Don Sixto gold-silver project in Argentina over the next quarter. The Company will continue to work with provincial authorities and with representatives of other mining companies, to effect amendment to the 2007 legislation that banned the use of cyanide in mining operations in Mendoza Province.

* Note: Gold equivalent grade is calculated by dividing the silver assay result by 60, adding it to the gold value and assuming 100% metallurgical recovery.
