Lone Star Gold, Inc. Secures $15 Million Equity Financing Agreement

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Lone Star Gold, Inc. (OTCBB: LSTG) ("Lone Star" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that on August 26th, 2011, the Company signed a USD$15 million equity financing agreement with Hong Kong based equity investor North American Gold Corp. According to the terms of the agreement, Lone Star is to specifically use the proceeds from the financing to fund operating expenses, working capital and general corporate activities related to the exploration and development of the Company's Mexico based La Candelaria gold and silver mining project.

The equity financing agreement does not involve any debt. Rather, the terms of the agreement give Lone Star the option to draw down from the $15 million amount as and when needed in the amount of $100,000 or multiples thereof.

"We're fortunate to have secured a substantial equity financing agreement with a serious investor," commented Daniel Ferris, Lone Star Gold's Company President. "We're also fortunate to have an experienced leadership team in place that will know how to best utilize the agreement's proceeds to move Lone Star toward its short-term mandate of rapidly becoming a mid-tier producer in Mexico."

Lone Star is conducting a study of the Company's La Candelaria property as due diligence toward verifying the findings of the property's initial report. The Company also currently has a team of geologists on the La Candelaria property conducting additional geo-chemical rock-chip samples; an electro-magnetic geo-physical study; and a stream sediment study of the surrounding drainage areas. Further mapping and a channel/trenching program will be conducted over the following weeks. Once all the new data has been analyzed, the Lone Star team intends to use the data to map a 10-hole core drill program scheduled for early fall 2011. The Company does not have any definitive results regarding the La Candelaria property at this time.
