Clifton Star Resources Inc.: Progress Report on Duquesne Mine Project-Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2008) - Clifton Star Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CFO) -

Fred T Archibald, P. Geo. Vice president of Exploration submits:

Drillhole DQ07-21 has intersected gold-bearing zone Vein 20 between 404.10 meters and 418.30 meters with values averaging 13.86 g Au/t over 5.15 meters width with a 35.33 g Au/t over 1.40 meters within this section. Expert Labs of Rouyen-Noranda completed the fire assay with gravimetric finish. Pulps are currently being run for total metallics on gold.

Vein 10 was encountered at 368.60 meters and partial return assays indicate 15.57 g Au/t over a width of .05 meters. Complete assays from this section are expected within a few weeks. Although assays have been returned for all holes drilled they are fragmentary; however sufficient information has been received to coordinate future drilling.

Of the four deep drill holes completed to date, all have intersected significant gold values below the ninth level of the mine workings. Drill holes DQ07-18 to DQ07-20 have intersected the structure at a vertical depth of 490 meters to 530 meters and were spaced 80 meters apart. DQ07-21 was positioned 250 meters west of DQ07-19 further west than has been previously drilled. Drilling has indicated that the gold-bearing system becomes wider with increasing gold values at depth. DQ07-21 has also encountered a significant massive sulphide structure along the footwall of the main gabro intrusive complex with significant visible sphalerite and chalcopyrite.

The gold bearing structure is within a continuous system of silica rich quartz-feldspar porphyry and syenite porphyry which occurs at the contact of the footwall of a gabbro intrusive and the hangwall of an ultramafic unit. The gold is associated with a series of both east-west and north-south trending fault zones which splay off the Procupine Destor Fault. This structure continues to the western boundary of the property and is more than 3000 meters in length. The Company expects to secure a second drill in early February for infield drilling with a third drill possible for early March. Centers for the infield drilling will be 25 meters while drilling to the west of DQ-07 along strike will be at 50 meter centers.

In total the Company anticipates between 25,000 to 30,000 meters of drilling this year.
