Star Gold Corporate Update

POST FALLS, ID--(Marketwire - January 13, 2010) - Star Gold Corp. (the "company" or "we") (OTCBB: SRGZ) has been diligently working throughout 2009 to bring forward the exploration of its mineral claims in Nevada, USA. With the price of Gold reaching all time highs, $1220 USD / oz (December 2, 2009), while there can be no guarantees, Star Gold is extremely encouraged on the future possibilities of its Excalibur Property.

"We are pleased to continue the work on our Excalibur Project. The work to develop targets that have been carried out have been very encouraging." stated Lindsay Gorrill, Star Gold's President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). "We hope to build on the considerable and useful work that has been performed on the Excalibur Property in the past. We feel that with recent advances in exploration technology and re-interpretation of earlier data, there is, in our opinion, that it is possible that some new mines may be discovered within the Walker Lane Structural Belt. Star Gold is well positioned on prospective ground with many of the required indicators that lead to a discovery."

The Excalibur Property is located about 20 miles southwest of Mina, in Mineral County, Nevada. The Excalibur project consists of 50 mineral claims equaling approximately 1000 acres, all within the well-known Walker Lane structural belt, host to many significant mining districts and several large mineral systems. Previous exploration has identified numerous targets on the property. MinQuest Inc (a private mineral exploration & evaluation company) was recently contracted to conduct field work that included mapping and rock sampling.

A review of all the compelling data generated to date will be the focus of the management of Star Gold for establishing an outline that:

--  Identifies new targets,
--  Outlines future drill programs,
--  Makes recommendations for more mapping and sampling work,
--  Identifies any opportunities for future acquisitions of lands,
--  Recommends a 2010 exploration budget.

The solid management of Star Gold is highlighted by President & CEO Lindsay Gorrill and his commitment to move Star Gold into an upper tier exploration and producing gold company.
