Weststar Resources Corp. Announces Analytical Results From Axe Property

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX-V: WER) (the "Company") is pleased to announce favorable analytical results from drilling operations on the Axe project, an advanced stage project with a known porphyry copper resource. The property consists of 21 mineral claims (119 claim units), located 20 km north of Princeton, British Columbia.

Within the West Zone, three drill holes were drilled to test a gold anomaly located in 2006 drill hole A06-05, which returned 49.5 meters grading 1.29g/t Au, including 3 meters grading 9.64g/t Au. Analytical results for the West Zone drilling are now available and selected results are listed below. Drill hole A09-01 was intended to undercut A06-05, but was abandoned short of its target due to tightening. Drill hole A09-03 was drilled 50m south of A09-06 and intersected significant gold mineralization associated with pyrite. Drill hole A09-04 was collared north of A06-05, and drilled at an azimuth of 065 degrees. This hole intersected a thick calc-silicate unit, but may not have intersected the mineralized West Zone fault structure, which appears to be a north, northeast structure.

The 2009 drill results based mainly on drill hole A09-03 suggest a steeply dipping, westerly structure with gold and associated pyrite. As surface drilling has proven to be very difficult with historical poor recoveries within the Axe property, trenching should be an effective method to evaluate the gold-bearing target.

The present results warrant additional exploration, including trenching south of drill hole A09-03. A permit for trenching within the West Zone will be applied for in early 2010 for fieldwork expected in early May. Additional 3D-Induced Polarization geophysics is being contemplated to extend and close IP chargeability anomalies that are open to the east and south of Weststar's 2005 3D IP grid. Permit applications are also being made for additional roadwork to target additional chargeability anomalies in the east of the property.

As a result of the 3D IP data interpretation, Weststar has also acquired Rita Copper Property. The 100% interest in the Rita Claims property has been acquired from an arm's-length vendor. Acquisition costs are a total of $15,000 and 2,500,000 shares. The property is subject to a 2% NSR, of which 1% can be acquired by the Company for $1,000,000. The Rita Claims are comprised of 4 claims totaling 1610.76 hectares which are contiguous with Weststar's Axe and Swan claims. Historical work includes stream sediment geochemistry, soil geochemistry, and lithogeochemistry. Recommendations from Assessment Report 10,503 include geological mapping, boulder prospecting, ground magnetometer surverys and reconnaissance IP traverses, and detailed soil mapping. Noteworthy in the 1982 Assessment Report 10,503, a report by Peter Peto and E.J. Debicki prepared for Inco Ltd., is, "The foregoing considerations suggests that the Rita claims may cover a geological environment that could potentially host a porphyry copper deposit similar to Copper Mountain or the Axe properties."

Weststar has also arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 7,000,000 units at a purchase price of $0.05 per unit for proceeds of up to $350,000. Each unit shall consist of one common share and one transferrable warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of two years from closing.

The funds will be used for general working capital and for further development of the Company's Canadian properties.

Finders' fees will be payable on the acquisition of the Rita Copper Property and on the private placement within the TSX Venture Exchange guidelines.

This transaction is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
