VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 16, 2007) - Alberta Star Development Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ASX)(OTCBB:ASXSF) is pleased to announce the assay results from a detailed mapping and field sampling program conducted at the Echo Bay Target area during the summer and fall of 2006. The detailed grid area encompassed 5.25 square kilometers at 100 meter grid spacings and is located northeast of the Echo Bay Mine site. The geology of this highly mineralized area is dominated by porphyritic and amygdaloidal andesites intruded by feldspar porphyry and granitic stocks that included areas of intense brecciation and hydrothermal alteration. A total of 138 grab samples were taken from the grid area and the samples demonstrate the widespread distribution of base and precious metals in breccias, veins and intensely altered rocks. The Company is reporting significant poly-metallic assay values from the sampling program which includes assay results up to 5505.0 gm/mt (177.01 oz/mt) silver, 30.3 gm/mt gold, 38.95% copper, 7.10% zinc, 0.51% nickel, 0.35% cobalt, 0.18% bismuth and 0.068% U308.

The accompanying table is a summary of the assay results of the 138 grab samples that were taken during the 2006 summer sampling program:

The Company believes that the results from the sampling program confirm the extensive nature of hydrothermal alteration and mineralization at the Echo Bay Grid. All grab samples were prepared, bagged and sealed by the Company's supervised personnel and were transported by plane to Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. ("ACME") in Yellowknife, NT where they were crushed and pulped, and then transported to ACME's main laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia for assaying. ACME is a fully registered analytical lab compliant with the International Standards Organization (ISO) for quality assurance.

Alberta Star's President and CEO, Tim Coupland, commented, "The results of the 2006 sampling program continue to confirm the presence of all the base and precious metals, copper, silver, gold, cobalt, nickel, bismuth and uranium in this region. The geology, alteration and poly-metallic metal suites present in the ground are consistent with the Company's exploration model for the Echo Bay region. The Company is extremely encouraged by these sample results and intends to intensify the Company's efforts in the search to drill for large IOCG poly-metallic and uranium deposits at the Company's Eldorado & Contact Lake Projects." The Echo Bay Mine site area is being targeted by the Company for silver, uranium and poly-metallic exploration. The Echo Bay region is a former past producer in which poly-metallic mineralization and alteration is intermittently exposed for over 3 kilometers in strike length, within a regionally extensive hydrothermal alteration. The mineralization occurs within the same suite of volcano-plutonic rocks that host other poly-metallic zones in the Eldorado & Contact Lake Mineral Belt, including the former El Bonanza Silver-Uranium (U-Ag) and the Eldorado Uranium (U-Ag-Cu-Co-Ni-Bi) and Echo Bay mines.

The Echo Bay Target is open for drilling along a strike length of greater 3 kilometers within a 200 to 500 meter wide horizon. This is one of a number of large IOCG & uranium targets that are emerging at Contact Lake, that are characterized by two to six different metals within a given target horizon. The Company is preparing the Echo Bay IOCG target for follow up spring and summer deep drilling. The Company has secured three BBS-25A (71 Series) drilling rigs for deep drilling in 2007 on its recently discovered zones and its recently identified prospective 2.5 kilometer long uranium targets. The Company has now contracted with all of its contractors and material assets needed to complete its 2007 Eldorado & Contact Lake drilling and field exploration programs. Follow up exploration and drilling in 2007 will focus on expanding the newly discovered zones, determining continuity and orientation, locating higher grade extensions of mineralization, and preliminary testing of the remaining, untested mineralized and altered zones within the project area.

THE ELDORADO & CONTACT LAKE IRON OXIDE COPPER, GOLD, SILVER AND URANIUM PROJECTS

The Eldorado & Contact Lake Permit Areas are located on the east side of Great Bear Lake in Canada's Northwest Territories. The permit areas are situated 470 kilometers north of the city of Yellowknife. The total size of the Eldorado & Contact Lake Permit area covers over 87,706 acres in size. The Eldorado IOCG Project area includes two past producing high grade silver and uranium mines, the Echo Bay Silver Mine which produced 23,779,178 ounces of silver and the Eldorado Uranium Mine which produced 15 million pounds of uranium and 8 million ounces of silver. The five past producing silver and uranium mines include the Echo Bay Silver Mine, Eldorado Uranium Mine, Contact Lake Silver and Uranium Mine, Bonanza and El Bonanza Silver and Uranium mines and are now included within the Company's land package ownership. Olympic Dam style volcanic hosted hydrothermal iron-oxide copper, gold deposits are attractive targets for exploration and development due to their poly-metallic nature, high unit value and enormous size and grade tonnage potential. The Eldorado Mineral Belt has long been recognized by geologists, as one of the most prospective Iron oxide copper, gold, silver and Uranium regions in northern Canada. The current Monday April 16, 2007 spot price for uranium provided by the The Ux Consulting Company LLC (www.uxc.com) is now $113.00 US per pound.
