About Redstar Gold Corporation

The Unga Project in south western Alaska consists of two properties acquired by Redstar in 2011: the Unga-Popof and Shumagin properties. The 100% owned Shumagin property hosts a historic (non 43-101 compliant) resource estimate of 254,000 tonnes grading 27.4 g/t gold and 127 g/t silver (SRK Consulting, 2000). The resource was based on shallow drilling in the late 1980′s that was within about 150m of surface. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current mineral resources, the Company is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.

The property also hosts the three past producing mines from the Apollo-Sitka high-grade gold vein system which produced approx. 150,000 oz. of gold from oxide ore in the early 20th century. The mine produced from a 2km structure, which extends for at least another 7km. and remains open on trend and at depth.

Redstar Gold also holds 50% of the Newman Todd Project in Red Lake Ontario. Newman Todd, currently optioned to Confederation Minerals (TSX.V:CFM), is a high grade gold discovery in the mineralization along a 1.8Km corridor within the Newman Todd Structure (“NTS”). The gold mineralization in the NTS remains open along strike and at depth. Additionally, the company has 10 properties in Nevada which it has optioned out to a partner upon which it has retained royalties and additional economic rights.

Andrea Diakow, P.Geo. is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed this news release.

On Behalf of the Board,

Redstar Gold Corp.
