Weststar Significantly Expands Copper/Gold Resource Potential on Axe Property, B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 14, 2007) - Weststar Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:WER) (the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from the first phase of the 2007 drilling program on the Axe property near Princeton, BC. The four diamond drill holes totaling 1307 meters were located in the West Zone and significantly expanded the strike length of combined gold/copper mineralization to over 700 meters in length and up to 150 meters in width. In addition, hole A07-06 has established the presence of copper/gold mineralization to a depth of 370 meters.

Significant mineralization was encountered in holes A07-06, 07 and 08 as shown in the table below. Hole A07-06 returned a 288 meter intercept (16.5 - 304.5 meters) that averages 0.27% copper and 0.15g/t gold (0.32% Cu eq).

According to Chris Dyakowski, President and CEO of Weststar, "This is the longest intercept of copper/gold mineralization ever reported from the Axe property and is particularly significant given the fact it validates the results of the 2005 3D-IP survey that clearly shows that a strong chargeability anomaly extends to at least 300 meters in depth."

Hole A07-07 confirms significant gold intercepts in excess of 1 g/ton gold similar in content to the gold of hole A06-5. This hole substantiates the presence of a discrete gold zone at the northern portion of the deposit.

Hole A07-08 intersected a 10.5 meter section of 1.55% copper and 0.94 g/ton gold within a broader 124.5 meter intercept (121.5 - 246 meters) that averages 0.38% copper and 0.22 g/ton gold (0.45% Cu eq). The 10.5 meter intercept consisted of massive chalcopyrite and magnetite in the form of skarn mineralization.

"The presence of skarn is very significant because historically the Axe property has been characterized as hosting a porphyry copper deposit and now it is apparent that there is a distinct possibility that the property may host two associated styles of mineralization," said Chris Dyakowski. "Similarities to the Craigmont deposit in British Columbia, the Robinson deposits in Nevada and other porphyry/skarn deposits are now being evaluated."

At this time the Company is continuing with its drilling program and hopes to further define and expand the indicated and inferred copper-gold resources already discovered in the West Zone, Adit Zone and South Zone. In addition, an IP chargeability anomaly will be drill tested in the North Zone.

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.

All drilling on the property is being conducted by Beaupre Drilling of Princeton.

Quality Assurance

Exploration on the Axe project is being conducted under the supervision of Mr. John Kerr, P. Eng., Weststar's Consultant and Chris Dyakowski, P.Geo., Weststar's President, both of whom are deemed a "qualified person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Both parties having prepared this news release.

All drill-core is being split, half the core being sent to Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd in Vancouver, British Columbia for copper and gold assays. Selected samples are being analyzed for additional metals and Specific Gravity. A QA/QC protocol has been established to ensure reliable interpretation of analytical data.
