Klondike Star Reports Year-End Performance Highlights

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Hans Boge, P.Eng., President, Klondike Star Mineral Corporation (OTCBB: KDSM), is pleased to report highlights and company financial statements for the 12 months ended February 29, 2008. Direct spending on exploration to year-end 2008 was $4,794,417 USD.

Major highlights for the twelve-months ending February 29, 2008 include:

1. Shifting the Indian River gold project (placer) from advanced-stage exploration to the pre-development stage. This included the completion of a major drilling program, bulk sampling, an environmental and socio-economic assessment of the project by the public, governments and regulatory authorities, the issuance of the authorization to develop and operate the mine, and substantial progress on mine planning and analysis for the determination of a mineral reserve and development decision-making.

2. A significant breakthrough on the advanced exploration stage Lone Star gold project (hard-rock) based on consolidated analysis of 2007 exploration results and geological research of the Klondike Region by the University of British Columbia's Mineral Deposit Research Unit. Updated analysis has identified about 20-25% of the mineralization needed for viable mining and established priority drill targets expected to substantially increase known gold potential. There are now four target zones demonstrating significant gold mineralization and resource potential including Lone Star, Nugget, Buckland, and Pioneer; and a fifth zone, the JF, is drill-ready. The comprehensive Lone Star Gold Project Scoping Study for a large tonnage, low- to medium-grade gold mine with a minimum projected life of 10 years is nearing completion for release.

3. Mobilizing a new Canadian subsidiary for global operations and the award of the 1,245 km2/481 mi2 gold and iron ore mineral exploration and exploitation concession from the Arab Republic of Egypt following a competitive, international bidding process.

Additional operational and financial highlights are summarized in the annual 10-K filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A copy of the complete report is available on the Company website or may be requested by contacting or calling (800) 579-7580 toll free.
