Tri-Star Holdings, Inc. Announces Company Is in Negotiations With Azrock Mining of Arizona

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - October 13, 2008) - TRI-STAR HOLDINGS, INC. (PINKSHEETS: TSHL), a publicly traded company currently on the Over the Counter, announced the Company is in negotiations with Azrock Mining of Arizona to establish operations at the company's gold mine claims COS 1 and COS 2 in Salome, Arizona. Pending negotiations, Azrock is scheduled to begin operations on or about Monday, October 20. Azrock has inspected the property over the last two weekends and consulted yesterday with Geologist Robert Chastain to determine the exact location to locate the richest vein for placement of the equipment. Tri-Star CEO Anthony Mellone stated, "The countdown has begun and we are excited to start producing while gold increases in value. Our plans are to begin operations in Arizona as we prepare to build the Chlorine chemical heat treatment plant in Oklahoma for all our properties."

The Salome Claims COS #1 & #2 are located adjacent to the historic Bunker Hill and Hercules mines and are estimated to contain over $500,000,000.00 in gold ore. Management stated last week that samples have already been collected from both of the properties and are currently being delivered to the assay office in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to a high concentration gold vein, the properties are known to have large amounts of silver, copper, and lead, further diversifying the company's metal interests in line with management's vision of growth for its metals industry division. New details about the COS mineral rights claims, including pictures and reports will be updated on the company's websites www.tristarcorporate.com and www.tristargold.com.
