Southern Star Drilling Intersects 108.3 g/t Au Over 3.8 M and 107.7 g/t Au Over 3.9 M and Extends Bruce Channel Gold Discovery 200 Meters

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 21, 2006) - Southern Star Resources Inc. (TSX:SSR) and Exall Resources Limited (TSX:EXL) are pleased to report that the on-going drill program on their Gold Eagle property located in Red Lake, Ontario has intersected some of the best high-grade gold intercepts (BC 19-2 - 108.3 g/t Au over 3.8 m and 107.7 g/t Au over 3.9 m) drilled to date in the Bruce Channel Gold Discovery Zone ("BCD") and has extended the discoveries gold mineralized envelope an additional 200 meters to the south southwest.

The high-grade gold intersections in BC 19 series holes are located 65 meters south of the previously known most southerly edge of the BCD gold mineralized envelope and the extensive gold mineralization encountered in BC 21 is another 200 meters further south southwest of BC19-2. This significantly enlarges the BCD gold mineralized envelope, which is now 1,100 meters vertical, 615 meters in a northeast by southwest direction and 450 meters in a northwest by southeast direction and open in all directions.

Anomalous gold values were encountered in BC 21 from approximately 730 meters to 1,020 meters (290 meters) and from 1,400 meters to 1,983 meters (583 meters). Borehole BC 21 was prematurely terminated in the gold mineralized zone due to the depth limitation of the drill rig. The geology, alteration and mineralization are similar in all respects to the mineralization previously encountered in the BCD further to the north northeast. This significant step-out from the Bruce Channel Discovery Zone has major implications for the size potential of the gold mineralized envelope. Step-out drilling and in-fill drilling between the gold mineralization intersected in BC 21 and the high-grade gold values intersected in BC 19-2 are continuing.

The current drill program, utilizing four drill rigs, will continue to test the BCD up and down plunge and along strike, as well as in-fill the 200 meters between the BC 19 series of holes and the BC 21 step out hole.

The 7 holes being reported today (please see Schedule "A") continued to test and extend the BCD. These holes and previously reported holes have consistently intersected high-grade, multiple gold zones, often containing coarse-grained visible gold within an extensive vein system related to sulphide zones associated with brecciated structures.

Proposed Merger

On September 28, 2006, Southern Star and Exall announced an agreement to merge. Meetings of shareholders of each of Exall and Southern Star to consider approval of their proposed merger are scheduled for December 4, 2006. See the joint press releases of Exall and Southern Star dated September 28, 2006 and November 7, 2006 for further details regarding the merger.

Qualified Person

The Gold Eagle Mine Property drill program is being carried out under the direction of Mr. John F. Whitton, P.Geo, a qualified person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Whitton has supervised the preparation of and verified the data reported in this press release.

Sample preparation and assay procedures are carried out by SGS Laboratories in Red Lake using standard fire assay method with AA finish and metallics.

Notes:

- VG - visible gold.
- Lengths reported are core intersection lengths and do not represent true
widths.
- It is anticipated that true width estimates will be made possible after
additional drilling.
- Conversion: grams per tonne times 0.0292 equals troy ounce per short ton
