Interim Results For The Six Months Ended 31 May 2010

                                           ALL STAR MINERALS PLC
                                  ("All Star Minerals" or "the Company")
                           Interim Results For The Six Months Ended 31 May 2010


I  am  pleased  to  announce the interim results for the six months ended 31 May 2010 and  to  provide  the
following update on the Company and its project portfolio.

The Gilpas Uranium Project

The  Gilpas  uranium  project  comprises two contiguous licences that cover  a  total  area  of  51  square
kilometres.  Gilpas  is  located in the Arjeplogg Uranium District of Northern  Sweden,  and  is  in  close
proximity to the Pleutajokk and Skuppesavon uranium deposits.

The  two  radon  surveys that have been completed to date have revealed a general anomalous radon  zone  of
157,500  square metres (450 metres by 350 metres), within which two far stronger anomalous zones have  been
identified. Zone 1 is c.6,000 square metres, being 150 metres in length by 40 metres in width, whilst  zone
2 has revealed an initial length of 300 metres.

The  next  stage of radon surveying at Gilpas commenced during the first week of August, with the intention
of  understanding  the true extent of the zone 2 anomaly. A total of 98 sensor cups  have  been  placed  at
depths of 50 centimetres in the glacial till soil, along 4 parallel gridlines at intervals of between 10-25
metres along each line, covering a total area of 8,000 square metres. The cups will be collected during the
second  week  of  September  and  sent  for analysis at the Alpha Track  laboratory  in  Vancouver.  It  is
anticipated that results from the laboratory will be returned by the start of the fourth quarter.

Our Swedish geological team are liaising with the authorities in Sweden with a view to ensuring the Company
can  commence  exploratory  drilling  at  Gilpas at the earliest opportunity.  We  will  continue  to  keep
shareholders informed on such developments.

Licence Renewal

It  is  our  intention  to  renew  all five licences that cover the Company's  three  projects  of  Gilpas,
Kuusivaara, and Samon in Sweden. The application to renew the Samon project for a further three  years  was
made in July, and the applications to renew the Gilpas and Kuusivaara projects will be made forthwith.


In  addition  to developing the three existing projects within the Company's portfolio, we are  looking  at
opportunities  to  acquire  other natural resource projects in jurisdictions outside  of  Scandinavia.  The
Company  is  on a surer financial footing compared with 12 months ago, and is better placed to  selectively
grow its project portfolio.


The  financial results for the six months to 31 May 2010 show a loss of £37,997 (2009: £54,996). The  basic
loss  per share was 0.0281p. The loss is attributable to the company's ongoing administrative expenses  and
project costs.


The  outlook  for  the  Company continues to look brighter with each passing  month.  We  look  forward  to
completing the current radon survey at the Gilpas uranium project and reporting the results to shareholders
in  the  coming weeks. Upon receipt of these results we will be able to analyse and plan the next phase  of
development at Gilpas, which we envisage being further radon surveying coupled with an exploratory drilling

It is also our intention in the coming months to undertake work on the Samon and Kuusivaara projects.

Samon is a uranium/thorium/rare earth project, and was the site of a boulder found in 1970 that returned  a
grade  of  3.5%  thorium  and 0.05% uranium. Since acquiring the project we have undertaken  a  radiometric
survey,  which  returned high readings in boulders and in outcrop over white pegmatites,  which  subsequent
analysis showed to contain phosphates of rare earths including cerium, thorium, and yttrium.

There  is  an increasing attraction from a commercial standpoint for the rare earth metals, and,  with  the
exception of terbium, the prices achieved for rare earths today are the highest they have been since  2001,
with the largest percentage price increases in the year-to-date having been for cerium and lanthanum. It is
possible  that  Samon  could host a carbonatite intrusion, which could be the  source  of  the  rare  earth
elements discovered on the project to date.

Kuusivaara,  meanwhile, is a uranium project known for its radioactive bogs, and, thus far,  six  anomalous
areas  have been identified, totalling some 4,000 square metres. One peat sample returned a grade  of  5.8%
uranium, whilst other samples assayed 3.76%, 2.10%, 0.74%, 0.70%, 0.61%, and 0.17% uranium.

Finally,  as  I  informed  shareholders at our recent AGM, we continue to be  extremely  prudent  with  the
Company's  finances. The balance sheet has to an extent constrained the pace of development of the  project
portfolio,  but,  following  a series of modest fundraisings this year, the  company  is  now  on  a  surer
financial footing.

We look forward to reporting progress on our existing project portfolio in the coming months, in particular
at  the Gilpas uranium project, along with any such new projects that could enhance the portfolio. We  view
the future for the Company with renewed optimism.
