VANCOUVER, CANADA – October 19, 2010 – First Star Resources Inc. (TSX-V: FS) (“First Star”), First Star Resources Inc. (TSX-V: FS) (“First Star”) is pleased to provide an exploration update on its second property under Joint Venture with International Tower Hill, the West Pogo Gold Project in Alaska. In September, while the company was drilling on the LMS Gold property, the company also conducted reconnaissance work on its second property, the West Pogo gold property, which included chip sampling of three traverses over mineralized rubble crops.
The entire zone sampled is approximately 40 meters wide. Assays from this sampling campaign revealed gold grades of 6.53 g/t over 6 meters and 13.05 g/t silver over 6 meters. The sampling was conducted by First Star’s exploration contractor Pacific Rim Geological Consulting of Fairbanks, Alaska. Chip samples were collected and placed in sealed bags and delivered to ALS Chemex in Fairbanks, Alaska for analysis. The results of this sampling campaign are presented in the table below.
|Sample Number||Sample Type||Sample Length||Gold||Silver|
|205349||Chip Traverse||6 meters||3.79 g/t||13.05 g/t|
|205350||Chip Traverse||6 meters||3.84 g/t||4.86 g/t|
|205351||Chip Traverse||6 meters||6.53 g/t||0.73 g/t|
VP of Exploration Dr. Karsten Eden stated. “These results are very encouraging. Gold values exceeding one gram per tonne over significant lengths were defined by chip sampling. All information thus far indicates a large mineralized system that is interpreted to be intrusion-related. An aggressive drilling program is warranted.”
