APEX, based in Vancouver, BC, is a leading mineral geological consulting services firm focused on the mineral and energy sectors.

APEX has initiated compiling regional airborne geophysical data, historic assessment data covering the Property and is working with the Company to finalize its 2013 exploration plans.

Recently, Weststar received TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") approval for acquisition of the Property, which allows the Company to initiate a work program to identify the highest priority drill targets. The Property borders Zenyatta's ground where they have recently made a significant graphite discovery.

"We are pleased to have engaged APEX to assist us in the work program at Albany South East," said William Rascan, President of Weststar.
