Canstar locates new showing containing up to 283 g/t gold; Commences trenching program on Kenora Gold Project
Toronto, Ontario - October 26, 2015. Canstar Resources (Canstar; TSX.V: ROX) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new showing on its Kenora Gold Project with rock grab samples returning assays of up to 283.3 g/t gold. The discovery was made 1.2 kilometers south of the historic Black Sturgeon showing and 800 meters southwest of the historic Black Sturgeon South showing. Other grab samples from the discovery area yielded significant values of 15.7 g/t and 4.7 g/t, with numerous additional samples grading above 0.8 g/t Au. This is the second phase of a 2015 exploration program on the Kenora Gold Project, the successful results for the first phase having been announced on July 28, 2015.
Several highlights of this most recent program, including the above developments, are:
• The discovery of a new high grade showing yielding grab samples up to 283.3 g/t gold
• 20 of 168 grab samples returning gold values greater than 1 g/t
• 6 grab samples returned very high gold values ranging from to 7.9 g/t to 283.3 g/t
• 56 of 168 grab samples returned anomalous gold values (0.1 g/t) or greater
The upper 90 percentile of these results (19 grab samples) have 1.1 g/t or better, averaging 5.2 g/t, and continues to demonstrate the high grade nature of the gold occurdrences on the project.
Table 1 shows the top 20 grab samples ranked by gold values:

|Sample ID||Au g/t||Comments|
|258009||3.36||Black Sturgeon Trend|
|258010||2.56||Black Sturgeon Trend|
|258067||2.02||Black Sturgeon Trend|
“The project continues to expand both in its scope and potential”, says Danniel Oosterman, President and CEO of Canstar. “The discovery of this new showing confirms the potential of this project, and supports further exploration to understand the extent of the showings in all directions including at depth. Perhaps most interesting from these results is that 11 of the top 25 gold bearing grab samples are not solely associated with quartz veining but occur in volcanic and sedimentary rocks; this adds much greater potential for discovering thick, extensive gold-bearing systems.”
The new showing appears to occur along a parallel structure to the Black Sturgeon trend to the north, which will also be the subject of further exploration in future programs.
As of this release, a work program is currently underway to follow up on these results. This program will involve mechanical trenching of the previously reported Aviator Trend and the Black Sturgeon Trend. The newest showing is slated for trenching in Spring of 2016 as there is insufficient time to obtain permits before the end of the 2015 field season. The Company intends to complete a winter program including geophysics in order to define drill targets for the 2016 exploration season.
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. 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. Laboratory analyses were completed by Accurassay Labs, who are an accredited lab under Standards Council of Canada to the internationally recognized ISO/IEC 17025 guidelines.
