Starfire Minerals Inc.: Porphyry Pearl and Langmuir South Drill Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) - Starfire Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SFR) is pleased to provide an update on activities at its Porphyry Pearl copper-gold project in the Toodogonne mining district of Northern British Columbia and its Langmuir South nickel project in the Timmins area of Ontario (see previous release of September 14, 2007).

Drilling started at the Porphyry Pearl property on August 24th and was suspended on September 29th owing to the onset of severe winter conditions. A total of 1,798 meters of NQ core was drilled in 6 holes, intersecting variably altered and mineralized monzonite. Casing was left in the last two holes (PP-07-05 and PP-07-06) to allow for potential downhole induced polarization (I.P.) surveys and re-entry for deepening pending the receipt of analytical results. Detailed logging and sampling of the core is being completed and analytical results will be released upon receipt and quality control verification.

Drilling continues at the Langmuir South project. One hole totaling 102 meters has been completed and the second hole is in progress at a depth of 51 meters of a proposed 8-hole, 1,000 meter first pass program. Both holes intersected ultramafic rocks. Analytical results will be released upon completion of the detailed logging, sampling, and quality control verification.

Starfire's Qualified Person as that term is defined in National Instrument 43-101 is Philip J. Rush, P.Geo., who is the author of this release.
