Stina Completes Core Drill Program on Dime Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 7, 2010) - Stina Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SQA) (the "Company") reports that exploration drilling on the Dime property located in the White Gold District has been completed The drill program was conducted from September 8 to September 16, 2010, and included five core drill holes totaling 657 meters from three separate drill pads.

Two pads were located on the Western anomaly to test coincident soil and trench sample anomalies. Drill holes DDH-10-01 and DDH10-02 were located over anomalous zones defined through soil and trench sampling. Holes DDH-10-03 and DDH-10-04 were drilled approximately 185 meters to the east of the first two holes again targeting anomalous soil and trench samples. All holes on the western anomaly intersected a strongly silicified and brecciated quartz serecite schist zone containing up to 3% disseminated pyrite. The silicified and brecciated zone is up to 20 meters in width and is steeply south dipping.

One hole DDH-10-05 was collared on the Eastern Anomaly 2.5 km east of the Western anomaly and intersected strongly clay and serecite altered granite porphyry with rafts of silicified meta-sedimentary rocks.

Core samples were collected over 1.5 meter intervals and are being processed and analyzed by Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. Results are expected in approximately three to four weeks and will be reported when they are received.

On the Kodiak property located directly south of the Underworld (Kinross) Golden Saddle Zone, and directly north of the Kaminak Coffee Gold Property, soil sampling and trenching have been completed and results are pending.

There has been insufficient exploration to define a Mineral Resource on the Dime Property, and it is uncertain as to whether, or not, further exploration will result in the discovery of a Mineral Resource on the property.
