Exeter Reports on 50 New Drill Holes at Cerro Moro

Vancouver, B. C., September 1, 2009 - Exeter Resource Corporation (AMEX:XRA, TSX-V:XRC, Frankfurt: EXB - "Exeter" or the "Company") is pleased to report on progress on its in-fill drilling of the high grade Escondida Vein at Cerro Moro, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina.

Results have now been received from 50 diamond drill holes from the Escondida West, Central and East sectors, with the results of an additional 45 drill holes from these sectors awaited. 33 of the drill holes have returned significant results, with 9 holes returning the bonanza (multi-ounce) gold and silver grades that characterize Escondida. The highlights are shown in the following table.

Selected bonanza grade drilling results using a 1 gram per tonne ("g/t") gold equivalent* cut-off grade:

* Gold equivalent grade is calculated by dividing the silver assay result by 70, adding it to the gold value and assuming 100% metallurgical recovery.

Of the remaining 17 diamond drill holes completed, 10 holes returned narrow and/or low grade intersections and seven holes were poorly mineralized. All 50 drill holes are represented on the following long sections and plans.

Exeter has also completed a further 26 diamond drill holes on the high grade Escondida Far West sector. Following sample preparation and assaying, results from these holes together with the additional 45 holes from the East, Central and West sectors drilled to date, will be released.

Progress on the Escondida Fomicruz Property

A reverse circulation percussion (RC) rig arrived on site in early August to commence scout drilling of a potential northwest extension of the Escondida mineralized structure onto the adjacent Fomicruz JV property. To date three holes have been drilled, with progress delayed by the need to penetrate a layer of weakly consolidated Tertiary marine sediments up to 50 metres thick. The Company is continuing to delineate the Escondida structure, and results to date have confirmed Exeter's interpretation of the geophysical data.

Quality Control and Assurance

Drill widths presented above are drill intersection widths and may not represent the true widths of mineralization.

Gold assay results presented above are preliminary and have been calculated using a 1.0 g/t gold equivalent cut-off grade*, with no cutting of high grades. All diamond drill core samples are split on regular metre intervals or on geological contacts and represent sawn half HQ-size core. Samples were prepared at the Acme Analytical Laboratories ("AcmeLabs") preparation facility in Mendoza, Argentina and assayed by fire assay (50 gram charge) at the AcmeLabs laboratory in Chile, both ISO-9001:2000 certified laboratories.

Check assaying of all samples assaying greater than 1.0 g/t gold is completed by AcmeLabs. Samples returning greater than 10 g/t gold and/or greater than 100 g/t silver are assayed using gravimetric analyses. Standard and blank samples are used throughout the sample sequence as checks for the diamond drilling reported in this release. Standard, blank and duplicate samples are used throughout the sample sequence as checks for the RC percussion drilling.

Assaying by the screen fire assay method has been implemented in conjunction with standard 50 gram fire assaying, for diamond drill cores that contain visible gold. The procedure for screen fire assaying involves crushing and sieving of a nominal 1,000 gram sample to a particle size of 100 microns. All material which does not pass through the 100 micron sieve is then assayed. Two fire assays are undertaken on the undersize material as a check on homogeneity. The total gold content is then calculated..

Matthew Williams, Exeter's Exploration 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 has C$30 million in its treasury.

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.). Over 16,500 metres were drilled during the 2008/2009 drill season. The program focussed on delineating the external boundaries of Caspiche. An initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate was released in March 2009. A second NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, which incorporates the results from drilling completed subsequent to December 31, 2008, is expected to be available in September 2009.

On its Cerro Moro project in Argentina, Exeter recently announced an initial inferred mineral resource estimate of 646,000 ounces gold equivalent*** at a grade of 18 g/t gold equivalent***. To date, Exeter has drilled over 100 infill holes on the Escondida vein structure in order to upgrade the sectors of the inferred resource that might be scheduled for early mining. Drilling will continue through 2009. Plans include drilling of a possible extension of the Escondida zone on the adjacent Fomicruz joint venture property. Engineering, environmental and infrastructure studies are being advanced ahead of a scoping study in 2010.

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.

** Inferred mineral resource estimate of 449.9 million tonnes from the oxide and gold-copper zone contains 8.7 million ounces gold at a grade of 0.6 g/t and 375.9 million tonnes from the gold-copper zone only contains 2 billion pounds of copper at a grade of 0.25% (see news release NR 09-09 dated March 24, 2009).

*** Inferred mineral resource estimate of 1,098,000 tonnes containing 371,000 ounces gold at a grade of 10.5 g/t and 19.2 million ounces silver at a grade of 545 g/t for 646,000 ounces gold equivalent at a grade of 18 g/t gold equivalent. Gold equivalent is calculated by dividing the silver assay result by 70, adding it to the gold value and assuming 100% metallurgical recovery (see news release NR 09-14 dated July 8, 2009).
