Star Gold Acquires Rights to Jet Project, Nevada

POST FALLS, ID--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - Star Gold Corp. (OTCBB: SRGO) (the "Company" or "Star Gold") is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into an agreement with MinQuest, Inc. to allow Star Gold to acquire a 100% interest in certain property commonly known as the "Jet Project." The Jet Project is located approximately 200 miles north of Las Vegas near the town of Silver Peak in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The agreement calls for the Company to invest a total of $110,000.00 (consisting of $40,000.00 in direct payments to MinQuest and $70,000.00 in expenditures towards development of the project) over the next seven (7) years. Under the agreement MinQuest is also entitled to receive residual payments if and when the project enters into production. 

Located within the Walker Lane Mineral Belt approximately 25 miles west of the Goldfield District, which historically has produced approximately 5 million ounces of gold, the Jet Project contains several old mine workings thought to have been dug in the 1920's and 1930's. These workings expose several brecciated quartz veins. Sampling of the veins and dumps of caved workings show precious metal values ranging from 0.05 to 10.7 g/t for gold and from 0.2 to 102 g/t for silver.

The project area is underlain largely by chert, argillite and lessor limestone of the Ordovician age Palmetto formation that has been intruded by a large intermediate intrusive. The contact zone between the intrusive and sediment is a low-angle brecciated zone that strikes nearly east-west. The quartz veins sampled in the workings occur above this breccia zone. Initial work indicates the breccia, which is untested by drilling, may be a trap for mineralization. Star Gold plans to conduct further geologic mapping and geochem sampling before making a decision on drilling.
