Clifton Star Resources Discovers New Vein Structure in Metasediments South of Syenite Porphyry Complex

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - Clifton Star Resources, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CFO)(FRANKFURT:C3T) announces that recent drilling on the Beattie property at Duparquet, Quebec has intersected two new gold mineralized zones that are located south of and parallel to the South Zone which have been drilled at 50 metre centres for a distance of 2400 metres. Vein E and Vein F are located some 80 and 170 metres south of the South Zone. While Vein E coincides with the south contact of the main syenite complex, Vein F is located beyond the syenite complex and into the meta sediments, a departure from conventional wisdom for the area that gold values were only associated with silicified syenite porphyry. Drillhole B09-40 has intersected this vein containing very intense alteration and mineralization between 408.0m and 550.0m. Both veins have been traced for 1400 metres and core samples are currently out for assaying.

The Company is pleased to announce that it has acquired 30 key mining claims from Radisson Mining for the sum of $250,000 for the Lepine and Destor properties in Destor Township. These properties are tie-on ground to the northwest and east of the Duquesne and provide added protection as well as extend the strike length along the Porcupine Destor Fault. The claims are subject to a 2% NSR.

The Company's immediate plans are to drill the west end of the syenite porphyry complex for possible extentions and to evaluate the complex for open-pit potential. A re-examination of the existing core that has not been analyzed is currently underway to determine unreported values.

Core samples are sent to Technilab of St. Germaine, Que for assaying using gravimetric finish. Check samples are sent to Chemex Labs in Val D'or, Que.

The above data has been assembled by Fred Archibald, P Geo., OGQ, Vice-President of Exploration in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in NI-43-101. He is deemed to be a Qualified Person.
