VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 12, 2007) - Selkirk Metals Corp. ("Selkirk") (TSX VENTURE:SLK) has executed a formal Arrangement Agreement that supersedes the Letter of Intent signed with Doublestar Resources Ltd. ("Doublestar") (TSX VENTURE:DSR) on March 1, 2007, as amended.

The Arrangement Agreement sets out the formal terms and conditions for the acquisition of Doublestar by Selkirk through an exchange of one-half of one common share of Selkirk for each one Class "A" share of Doublestar (the "Transaction").

The parties have begun the process of preparing a formal information circular describing the transaction that will be delivered to Doublestar shareholders on or about May 15, 2007.

Doublestar will hold a special meeting of its shareholders coincident with its annual general meeting on June 12, 2007 at which time it will seek shareholder approval of the Transaction. The approval of Selkirk shareholders is not expected to be required in order to complete the Transaction. All directors and officers of Doublestar (and their respective affiliates) have entered into support agreements with Selkirk pursuant to which they have agreed to support the Transaction and vote all shares of Doublestar held by them in favour of the Transaction.
