Mrs. Vigil has considerable legal experience and has extensive knowledge with operating public companies.

Resigning as Directors and Officers are Virginia Shehee, Sterling Redfern and Jackie Wine. Mr. Shea commented, "The new management team wishes to thank the previous Directors/Officers for their substantial contribution to International Star. Under their leadership, the Van Demeen prospect was advanced to a state, where the new team can move it into production."

The Van Deemen Mine property consists of five unpatented lode mining claims totalling approximately 100 acres acquired through a lease agreement with La Cuesta International, Inc. in April of 2011. The Company has also located 18 unpatented lode claims in the area surrounding the Van Deemen Mine, which have been staked and recorded with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and the Mohave County Recorder.

A check of the historic resource by Carroll and Metzler shows good agreement of the reported 34,000 ounces of near surface gold with grades ranging from 1-3 grams per ton. The purpose of the report was to demonstrate that the historical exploration data confirm that the project merits additional work to verify previous defined mineralization.
