Weststar Announces Commencement of Exploration on Red Chris Area Properties Adjacent to Imperial Metals

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WER)(FRANKFURT:HN3) (the "Company") is pleased to announce a new work program which will commence in June on the company's 100% owned Red Chris area properties adjacent to Imperial Metal's Red Chris property located in north-western British Columbia. Weststar's significant land holdings are comprised of two separate claim blocks totaling over 28,720 acres.

Coyote Claim

Group Weststar's 100% owned Coyote Claim block is larger than 2175 acres in size and contiguous with the Red Chris copper-gold property where Imperial Metals Corp. announced assay results of 152.5 metres grading 4.12% copper and 8.83 g/t gold, averaging 2.00% copper and 3.80 g/t gold over 432.5 metres. The property border is only 5.3 kilometres northwest of the Red Chris east zone discovery.

Hans Claim Group

The Hans block is located approximately 20 km northwest of the Red Chris deposit and is over 26,544 acres in size. The Hans claim group is a relatively unexplored property although a number of copper showings have been reported.

Exploration Program

After acquiring the Coyote Claim group early in 2010, Weststar initiated detailed research on area geology, data compilation and remote sensing data interpretation. In-house geoscience staff, along with geological and geophysical consultants have compiled, reviewed and analyzed the available datasets and the result of this work has been the identification of a significant number of new targets for exploration.

The initial work will consist of permitting followed by field work when ground access conditions are suitable. Field work will include detailed stream sediment sampling, prospecting, geological reconnaissance with emphasis on areas under any existing basaltic cap rock, grid establishment, magnetometer surveys, geochemical soil sampling and/or SGH (Soil Gas Hydrocarbon) soil sampling.

The company will also investigate the possibility of conducting an airborne geophysical survey (magnetics +) over both properties, dependent upon availability of geophysical contractors. It is Weststar's intention to follow up on the results of the initial work program with additional geological fieldwork over selected areas of interest as defined by the surveys in order to better define potential drill targets.

New geoscience tools will also be deployed to the Red Chris area properties as part of this year's program. Weststar will utilize an Innov-X Systems XRF Analyzer in field operations. This XRF unit provides accurate, in the field analysis of rocks and soils. These real time analytical results help define exploration program parameters and allow quick follow up to discoveries during regional mapping, geochemistry and prospecting programs.

Current planning is to mobilize equipment and geological staff in late June with exploration work starting before the month end. The program is planned to run from about July 1st into mid August.

Gerald Bidwell, P. Geo., will be the Qualified Person for the Red Chris Area Properties.
