IAMGOLD Intersects 6.0 g/t Au Over 9.0 Metres on the Nelligan Project in Quebec

LA PRAIRIE, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 23, 2015) - The management of Vanstar Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VSR) wishes to announce that its partner IAMGOLD Corporation ( IAMGOLD ) has intersected mineralization grading 6.0 g/t Au over a true width of 9.0 metres in drill hole NE-14-25 completed during the December 2014 drilling campaign on the Nelligan project, located 60 kilometres southwest of Chibougamau, Quebec, Canada.

This first drilling program, totaling 585 metres, was designed to test the eastern extension of Liam and Dan gold zones and the continuity of these gold zones at depth. Drill holes NE-14-24, NE-14-25 and N2-14-25B were successful in intersecting both zones. Hole NE-14-25 was abandoned at a depth of 36 metres. The table below summarizes the gold intersections of this program and a surface plan can be found on the following link.

"We are very pleased with these first results from our partnership with IAMGOLD. This clearly demonstrates the potential and continuity of Liam and Dan areas." noted the president of the company Mr. Guy Morissette.

A 4,000 m drill program is in preparation and is scheduled to start this month.

About the Nelligan Project

The Nelligan project contains several interesting gold showings including Liam, Dan and Lake Eu. Liam and Dan showings were discovered by drilling in 2013 and 2014. These new gold structures were intersected to date over a length of 400 metres and at a depth of over 200 vertical metres. The presence of gold is constant throughout the drilling. These zones remain open along strike and at depth. Prospective showings appear to fall within a structural corridor of potential strike length of several kilometres associated to the Guercheville Deformed Corridor.
