Southern Star Resources Inc.: 19.69 Feet at 1.06 ozs./ton Au, 9.71 Feet at 0.95 ozs./ton Au at Gold Eagle Mine Property, Red Lake, ON

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 21, 2005) - Southern Star Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSR) and Exall Resources Limited (TSX:EXL) reports further successes at their Gold Eagle Property, Red Lake, Ontario.

BC 10-3, which intersects the mineralized system above BC 10-1, continues the program aimed at obtaining further information on the large gold bearing area indicated by BC 10-1 and BC 10-2 (Press Release August 29, 2005). The drillhole was collared off a wedge inserted in BC 10-2 at a depth of 1,134.50 metres. The final depth of this hole was 1,584 m. at a lateral distance from the bottom of BC 10-2 of approximately 150 m.

The interval from 1,263.21 to 1,266.96 metres (3.75 metres) runs 0.46 g/tonne. It is part of a brecciated chert unit noted from 1,257.60 to 1,268.32. When included with the other figures referred to above, the section from 1,257.21 to 1,268.32 runs 21.68 g/tonne over 11.11 metres (0.63 ozs/ton over 36.45 ft).

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 possible after additional drilling.

- Conversion: g/tonne x 0.0292 equals Troy ozs. / short ton.

A working stratigraphy is being developed across these zones of gold mineralization which is characterized by a sequence of metasediments with mafic volcanics. Several silicified sections with moderate to strong carbonate and biotitic alteration can be followed from BC 10-2 to BC 10-3. The area between BC 10-1 and BC 10-3 will require additional drilling to further define the structure.

Diamond drilling is continuing. A further hole infilling the area between BC 10-1 and BC 10-3 was abandoned due to problems with the drill rods. This hole has been restarted and is currently drilling. Results are expected during mid October. A second drill rig will be added by the end of October to increase the productivity of the drill program. Drilling is expected to continue during the freeze-up period.
