Star Uranium Corp.: New Uranium Property Acquisition

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 17, 2006) - Star Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SUV) is pleased to announce that it has acquired by staking 8 mineral claims totaling over 100,000 acres in the area of JNR Resources Inc.'s (TSX VENTURE:JNN) recently announced discovery (up to 48% U3O8) contained in surface bedrock samples from their recently completed summer work program at Hook Lake, part of their Way Lake project.

Six of the new claims adjoin JNR Resources Inc.'s Way Lake project and are located south of the discovery. Star Uranium has named these six claims the Alexander Lake project. The remaining two claims, known as the Pardoe Lake property, are to the east of the new discovery and are contiguous to JNR's Yurchison Lake project to the north and the JNR / International Uranium Pendleton Lake project to the south. Please refer to the Star Uranium Corp. website at www.staruranium.com to view the map indicating the proximity of the properties to one another, or for more detail go to http://www.staruranium.com/special/.

Star Uranium intends to commence exploration work on the properties within the next 60 days. Portions of the newly acquired claims cover regional E.M. conductors identified by airborne surveys. These conductors are present on both JNR Resources Inc.'s properties and Star Uranium's properties. There will be at least two drill programs operating in the area this winter and Star Uranium will share logistics wherever possible.
