Canstar Announces Appeal of Decision by Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court Regarding Mary March Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 22, 2006) - The Directors of Canstar Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROX) announce that Vinland Resources Limited has appealed the ruling of the Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court, Trial Division, regarding the Mary March Property in the Buchans area of Newfoundland which was announced on July 27, 2006 (see Press Release 06-2006). The timing for the hearing of the appeal has not been determined, but it is hoped that it can be heard by the end of the year.

The Canstar-Phelps Dodge Corporation of Canada Joint Venture intends to file a cross appeal seeking to have Vinland's claim dismissed without a re-hearing by the Newfoundland and Labrador Mineral Adjudication Board.

Although the Canstar-Phelps Dodge Corporation of Canada Joint Venture continues to hold its interest in the subject claims over which Vinland has sought Map Staking Licences, no further work will be done on the Mary March Property until the appeal is determined.

The Corporation's legal advisors believe that the merits of the case strongly favour Canstar and that the appeal will be determined in favour of the Canstar-Phelps Dodge Corporation of Canada Joint Venture. The Directors appreciate shareholders' continuing faith and patience and we look forward to a final resolution of this matter.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Harry J. Hodge, P.Eng.
