Redstar Gold Corp.: More High Grade Gold at Newman Todd 22.0 Metres of 4.31 g/t Gold Including 1.0 Metre of 78.0 g/t Gold

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2012) - Redstar Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RGC) ("Redstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from the 2012 diamond drill program holes at the Newman-Todd property in Red Lake, Ontario.

Summary of Results: (See table 1)

Two drill holes, NT-112 and NT-113, were targeted on cross section 1725 which is a 25 metre step out from Holes NT-110 and NT-111 (reported in Redstar's news release dated June 22, 2012).

  • NT-112 intersects 22.0 metres of 4.31 g/t gold including 1.0 metre of 78.0 g/t gold, and, 0.50 metres of 10.80 g/t gold.
  • NT-113 intersects 1.0 metre of 8.24 g/t gold.

Discussion of Results:

The high grade intercept in Hole NT-112 is approximately 50 metres below and south west of the high grade intercept in hole NT-111 (13.0 metres of 5.71 g/t gold including two higher grade sections averaging 17.10 g/t gold over 1.0 metre and 49.60 g/t gold over 1.0 metre). At present, there is no drilling between these two intercepts while the mineralized corridor surrounding these holes extends for at least 150 metres vertically and remains open to surface and at depth. This corridor is just one of several interpreted across the property drilled along a strike length of approximately 1.8 km (See figures 1 & 2 attached to this news release and posted on the Company's website Going forward, the objective of the current drilling program is to test this corridor, and several others which may be parallel to it, to depths below 500 metres.

About Redstar Gold

Redstar has fourteen gold projects in Nevada, the Unga project in Alaska and the Newman Todd project in the Red Lake district, Ontario. In Nevada, several projects are undergoing active exploration by partners including Newmont Mining and others. The Unga Project in Alaska includes the high-grade Shumagin gold deposit, the Centennial disseminated bulk-tonnage gold deposit and the Apollo-Sitka high-grade gold vein system, which produced approximately 150,000 oz. of gold in the early 20th century. The Newman Todd project contains a 2 km-long corridor of high-grade gold mineralization that is similar to that at the nearby world-class Red Lake Mine and has been the focus of an aggressive drilling campaign in 2011.
