Clifton Star announces Drill Results from the Duparquet Project Including 7.06 g/t Au Over 6.0 m and 1.46 g/t Au Over 19.0 m.

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 6, 2013) - Clifton Star Resources Inc. ("Clifton Star" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:CFO)(FRANKFURT:C3T) is pleased to announce the assay results for an additional 30 drill holes from its 2013 Duparquet Project drill program, as well as results from its drill core resampling program of the Dumico Property.

All of the drill holes listed in this press release will be included in the upcoming resource estimate update expected in early July 2013.

Clifton Star continues to obtain positive assay results from both delineation drilling of its main shear zones as well as the exploratory drilling of the secondary structures within the intrusion. The results within the pits limits demonstrate that the zones show good grades and continuity. (Click here for Figure 1)

Drill Highlights include:

  • Hole BD13-10 with 6.0 meters grading 7.06 g/t Au (RW/RS Zone)
  • Hole BD13-11 with 20.4 meters grading 1.34 g/t Au (Syenite) and 19.0 meters grading 1.46 g/t Au (South Zone)
  • Hole BD13-20 with 3.0 meters grading 10.2 g/t Au (North Zone)

Dumico resampling program:

The Dumico Property is located within the larger Duparquet Project, immediately to the east and adjacent to the Central Duparquet deposit. In 2012 and 2013, Clifton Star undertook a program of relogging and resampling the core available for the Dumico Property. This included the re-analysis of 3,544 samples in 19 drill holes.

Highlights from Dumico Resampling Program include:

  • Hole DUM08-01 with 49.4 meters grading 1.58 g/t Au including 8.2 meters grading 7.62 g/t Au (cut assay).
  • Hole DUM08-06 with 12.8 meters grading 3.38 g/t Au including 3.0 meters grading 11.90 g/t Au.
  • Hole DUM09-06 with 12.2 meters grading 3.35 g/t Au including 3.2 meters grading 7.82 g/t Au.

2013 Activities:

The attached tables include the highlights from the most recent 2013 drill program (Click here for Table 1) as well as the results from the resampling program of the Dumico Property (Click here for Table 2). The true thicknesses of the intersections are typically 60% to 80% of the core lengths.

A new resource estimate is currently in the process of being prepared and will include 97 drill holes completed during the 2012-13 Duparquet Project drill program as well as the resampling of 19 holes from the Dumico Property. This resource estimate is expected to be available in mid-2013.

Clifton Star has started a Pre-Feasibility Study on the Duparquet Project that will compare the relative benefits of the two possible process treatments, either a POX circuit, as used in the PEA, or the production of high grade gold concentrates as an alternate process. Pilot Plant testing is presently on-going at SGS Lakefield facilities and will be completed in July 2013.

Technical Information and Qualified Persons

Diamond drill holes are drilled to recover NQ size core. The core samples are logged and sampled prior to being transported directly by the Company to Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Ste-Germaine de Boule), an independent accredited laboratory, for assay analysis. The assay analyses performed during Clifton's drill programs are subject to a formal quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program, with standard reference materials, blanks, and field duplicates samples inserted prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the data. Samples with higher grade gold (greater than 10 grams per tonne) are reassayed using a gravimetric and/or pulps and metallic procedure. All gold results reported are cut, with individual assays greater than 25 grams per tonne cut to 25 grams.

The Company's exploration team designed and executed the 2013 drilling program under the supervision of Clifton's Vice President of Exploration, Mr. Louis Martin. The content of this news release has been written and approved by Mr. Louis Martin, P.Geo, a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
