Clifton Star Resources Inc.: Company Summary

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Clifton Star Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CFO) -

As of this date CFO TSX.V has completed over 22,000 meters of drilling with a total of 75 drill holes of which 17,500 meters and 51 holes were drilled on the Duquesne and 4500 meters and 24 holes drilled on the Beattie. The Duquesne owned by the Company and the Beattie, under option are both near Duparquet, Quebec. Save for one hole which had mechanical problems all the holes encountered mineralization.


The mineralized zones consisting of four parallel veins have been extended for over 1250 meters west of the old workings and to a depth of approximately 920 meters on a structure of some three thousand meters along on the north side of the Porcupine Destor Fault. Drilling has taken place using a four-tier grid with centers of 50 to 100 meters apart. Three drills are currently operating on the property.

Over half of assays have not been received; visible gold was observed in a majority of the remaining holes out for assaying. Values on the early holes have averaged 8.27g/t au. Upon receipt of the remaining assays from Expert Labs of Rouyn-Noranda and TechniLabs of St. Germaine, Quebec an NI 43-101 compliant update on the resource will be released.


The Company is concentrating its drilling on the newly discovered eastern extension of the South Zone and the South Zone. The total strike length of each zone is approximately 500 meters with an offset of 60 to 70 meters dividing the two zones. The eastern extension appears to widen with depth where widths of up to 123.4 meters (true widths of 40-80 meters) have been intersected to a depth of 300 meters. The eastern extension is being drilled using 40-50 meter centers and the South Zone 30-50 meter centers. Of the 24 holes drilled to date, partial assays have been received for only four holes. Currently, two drills are operating with a third drill arriving mid week to concentrate on the North Zone of the Donchester property.

The NI 43-101 report was completed on June 2nd by Peter Bevan P Eng. However, additional reports have since surfaced which may have a bearing on increasing the resource. They will be examined by Mr. Bevan and if warranted an amended and complete report will be prepared.
