Canstar Receives Numerous High-Grade Grab Sample Results on Its Kenora Project, Including up to 24.9 g/t Gold
Toronto, Ontario - December 01, 2014. Canstar Resources (Canstar; TSX.V: ROX) is pleased to announce results from its 2014 reconnaissance surface mapping program on its Kenora Gold Project. Rock sampling over various locales on the project have returned significant gold assays indicating a strong potential for the project’s future.
Highlights of this exploration program are:
• Numerous gold-bearing grab samples near Island Lake including samples containing 23.0 g/t Au, 15.9 g/t Au, 15.0 g/t Au and 6.0 g/t Au located along the same structure approximately 1.2 kilometers apart;
• Several grab samples near Kenora Airport block containing 13.6 g/t Au and 20.9 g/t Au;
• Grab samples near Hilly Lake area containing 24.9 g/t Au and 5.5 g/t located approximately 50 meters apart along same structure
The program involved initial reconnaissance mapping to outline the nature and location of the historic structures and mineral showings that are described in the Ontario Mineral Deposit Inventory (“MDI”) and to determine their continuity and relationship with the overall regional geology. The Kenora Project is comprised of 4 mining claim blocks that cover areas that were mined in the late 1800’s but have seen little work since that time. Of approximately 108 samples taken over the Project area, 25 show high-grade to anomalous gold values in and around mapped structures and their trends. Of particular significance is the northernmost block, closest to Island Lake, where high-grade gold values of 15.9 g/t can be found along a mappable trend, with a distance of approximately 700 meters between samples. Historic production in 1897 (see OGS Report OFR 5695, “Princess Mine”, 1988) along trend and to the southeast of these results have been documented in the recorded high gold values up to 19.5 g/t gold and suggest a minimum 2.0 kilometer gold bearing structure. In addition, mapping indicates the structure continues to the northeast offering additional exploration potential in that direction, which suggests the presence of a potential district-scale gold bearing structure on the Project.
Additional mapping and rock sampling to the south of this area yielded very high gold values near the Hilly Lake area along a 50 meter structural trend. Gold values of 24.9 g/t and 5.5 g/t were traced along a mappable shear zone. Regional magnetic data exhibits a coincident magnetic anomaly with this trend which may indicate a continuation towards the eastern portion of the Company’s claim block.
It is noted that higher gold values tend to occur with higher sulphide content, which the Company feels will allow it to effectively employ modern geophysical methods that have yet to be used in the area from the time there was gold production in the late 19th Century.

QP and Quality Control
“Significant Assays” as mentioned in this Press Release are based on statistically significant results determined by plotting data in normal probability plots to ascertain background and anomalous values. Quantile values of “mean” +1 standard deviation are considered anomalous and therefore significant. Historic values and indications of historic results noted in this press release are not NI43-101 compliant and should be evaluated as “historic” under NI43-101. Canstar observes a quality control program for all of its exploration work according to best practices in the industry from sample shipment and preparation to data collection and analyses. Chemical analysis was completed by AGAT Laboratories and ALS CHEMEX Laboratories. A 50-gram split of each sample is analyzed Fire Assay with an ICP-OES finish for overlimit values.
