VANCOUVER, June 09/PRNewswire/ – First Star Resources Inc. (TSXV: FS) (“First Star”) is pleased to announce the results of its 2011 winter drilling program on its flagship property, LMS, in Alaska. The LMS property is under Joint Venture with Corvus Gold Inc. (A spin off from International Tower Hill). (TSX:KOR.to – News). The LMS claim block is located in the Goodpaster Mining District of Alaska and consists of 92 State of Alaska mining claims covering 61 square kilometers.
In March and April 2011, First Star Resources drilled two NC core holes totaling 640 metres within the Camp Zone area of LMS. While drill hole LM-11-40 was successfully completed, LM-11-41 had to be abandoned due to technical difficulties. Highlights of drill hole LM-11-40 include 21.2 m grading 5.8 g/t gold and 12.6 g/t silver in the gold-bearing graphitic quartzite breccia, including 5.2 m grading 21.4 g/t gold and 33.5 g/t silver.
CEO John Campbell stated. “We are very excited about the results of the 2011 winter drilling program at LMS. High grade gold and silver grades over significant intercepts within the graphitic quartzite breccia clearly demonstrate the potential of the Camp Zone area. We just started with our 5,000 metre summer drilling program at LMS and are excited about the potential the LMS property has to offer”.
