Weststar Announces Exploration Program on the Axe Property

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - September 10, 2009) - Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX-V: WER) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of exploration operations for the Axe Project, located near Princeton, B.C. A plan of drill hole locations has been finalized with applications filed to commence drilling as soon as possible.

This exploration program contemplates 8 to 10 HQ size diamond drill holes aimed at both updating a resource estimate for the South Zone, as well as stepping out from the anomalous gold mineralization previously encountered in the West Zone during the Company's 2006-2007 drilling program.

Weststar is finalizing an agreement with More Core Diamond Drilling Services Ltd., of Stewart, BC. More Core has an experienced team and versatile equipment which Weststar feels will be fully capable of delivering quality service and core recovery in a timely fashion.

Given the Axe Project's proximity to the Copper Mountain Project (the former Similco Mine closed operations in 1996) which recently completed its feasibility study and now appears to be going ahead with construction and partnership with Mitsubishi, Weststar is encouraged to pursue the advancement of the Axe property.

"We're very encouraged to have the commitment from our drilling contractor to deploy equipment and crew as soon as we're in receipt of our permits," Mitchell Adam, President of Weststar states. "With this additional drilling we feel confident adding to our 43-101 compliant resource estimate and enhancing shareholder value in this project."

About the Company: Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX-V: WER) is a mineral exploration company focused on discovering and advancing mineral properties by utilizing modern geological science to evaluate historical known discoveries. Weststar offers the potential for rapid corporate growth and asset appreciation. Weststar's portfolio is currently focused in Canada and holds Coal, Lithium, Copper and Gold properties.

Weststar holds 70% interest in the Axe property.
