Eagle Star Minerals Completes Stage 1 Exploration at Its Angico Iron Exploration Project and Commences Stage 2

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2011) -Eagle Star Minerals Corp., (TSX VENTURE:EGE)(PINK SHEETS:ELGSF)(FRANKFURT:E6R) ("Eagle Star" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed stage 1 of the exploration program at its Angico Iron Project, Piaui State, Northeast Brazil and has commenced the next stage.

The first stage of exploration included mapping, sampling, ground magnetometer surveys, trenching and 500 meters of scout drilling. Results from the work completed to date demonstrate significant mineralization at depth and along strike. The results of trenching on the company's largest block, Cavaleiro, indicated the presence of significant high grade Banded Iron Formation which extends at least 2km along a strike of 8 km with some of the samples returning 44.66% Fe2O3 across 39 metres and 51.98% Fe2O3 across 18 metres.

The next stage of exploration will be more extensive than Stage 1 and includes up to 5000 metres of core drilling. The objective of this stage is to delineate the potential size of the mineralized zone in the Cavaleiro block. Additional mapping, sampling and magnetometer surveys will also be carried out on the other targets in preparation for drilling.

"We are extremely happy with the results of our first full stage of exploration work at Angico, especially given the fact that we received very strong results from the Cavaleiro block. We are extremely excited about commencing Stage 2 of our comprehensive exploration plan at Angico and remain highly confident that results of this stage will provide further evidence that this project hosts potential large high-grade mineralized iron zones. To this end we remain steadfastly focused on our ultimate goal of moving this project to full NI 43-101 documented status", stated Eran Friedlander, President and CEO of Eagle Star Minerals Corp.
