(TSX VENTURE:WRC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement of additional drilling at its porphyry copper-gold property near Princeton, British Columbia. The proposed program will include 1950 meters (6,376 feet) of HQ diamond drilling. The 2007 drilling is intended to further define the limits of the West Zone in both strike length and at depth and to test the extent of the newly discovered gold zone as well as test other exploration targets. This drill program is being conducted as part of the Company's continuing exploration of the Axe property.

"The current drilling program signifies the beginning of definition drilling of the chargeability anomalies generated by a 3 Dimensional Induced Polarization geophysical survey and further defined by exploration drilling in 2006," said Chris Dyakowski, P. Geo., President of Weststar. "The current drilling plan is designed to further expand and define the indicated resource of 39 MT (million tons) grading 0.38% copper and inferred resource of 32 MT grading 0.38%."

Located in one of British Columbia's most prolific copper-gold mining districts the Company is confident that the work being carried on the property this season will add further value to the already exciting potential of the property.

Drilling will be conducted by Beaupre Drilling of Princeton, a respected British Columbia Diamond Drilling Company, in business for over 30 years.
