Weststar Resources Corp.: Forward Share Split

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 1, 2007) - Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WRC) (the "Company") is pleased to report that the board of directors will seek shareholder and regulatory approval at the next annual general meeting to divide its outstanding and issued share capital on a basis of two new shares for each existing outstanding share.

On January 25, 2007 the Company's reported assay results from the first phase of drilling on its Axe property near Princeton, BC confirm the discovery of a potentially large, high grade, copper-gold mineralized zone associated with the porphyry-style mineralized resource of the previously delineated West Zone.

Significant mineralization was encountered in holes A06-02, 03, and 05. In the West Zone, hole A06-02 returned a 4.5 meter intersection grading 2.22% copper and .72g/t gold within a broader 45 meter intercept (126-171 meters) that averages 0.53% copper and 0.15g/t gold.

Hole A06-02 ended in a well-mineralized 12.5 meter zone (202.5-215 meters) which graded 0.65% copper and 0.22g/t gold, while A06-03 returned a 106.5 meter intercept (18-124.5 meters) grading 0.20% copper and 0.15g/t gold. A06-05 returned 14.5 meters (11-25.5 meters) averaging 0.36% copper and 0.29g/t gold.
