Canstar Samples 2.0 g/t Gold over 18 meter Channel on its Kenora Gold Project
Toronto, Ontario - December 3, 2015. Canstar Resources Inc. (Canstar; TSX.V: ROX) is pleased to announce assay results from its recent trenching and channel sampling program.
A total of 85 samples were collected over 7 channels with additional 7 chip samples following the Company’s most recent reconnaissance program which highlighted a number of high grade gold-bearing areas on the project (see Company’s press releases dated October 26th 2015 and July 28th, 2015). Highlights from this channel sampling program include:
• An 18.0 wide meter channel containing 2.0 g/t gold including 5.0 meters containing 6.8 g/t gold on its Aviator trend
• A 2.7 meter long select chip sample containing 5.0 g/t gold on its Hilly Lake trend
• A 1.4 meter wide channel containing 1.8 g/t gold on its Black Sturgeon trend
• Discovery of a new showing parallel to the Aviator trend containing a select channel sample of 0.7 meters containing 1.7 g/t dubbed “Avro East”
“The purpose of this program was to demonstrate that the mineralized areas that the Company identified during its 2015 grassroots exploration program can extend over appreciable widths” said Danniel Oosterman, President & CEO of Canstar, “The channel sampling confirmed that this is the case, especially with regards to the Aviator trend, and we are very encouraged by these results.” Highlighted channel samples are tabulated below:

|Trend||Channel||From (m)||To (m)||Length (m)||Au (g/t)|
The channel samples collected occurred in various rock types, from quartz-veins and into adjacent volcanic rocks. In the case of Hilly Lake, the main gold association is with intrusive rocks. Structurally, observed shearing on the project dips vertical to sub-vertical, thus the reported results are believed to represent a good approximation of true width values. Alteration and shearing is evident at the outcrop scale, as is a notable association of higher gold content where increased sulphides are observed. The Company believes this sulphide association will aid as a targeting characteristic for a geophysical program, which it wishes to conduct in early 2016. Due to weather constraints, detailed mapping of stripped areas was not completed; however, the Company does intend to complete this work in Spring of 2016. The project is expected to be upgraded to a drill-ready status upon completion of this work.
QP and Quality Control
Channel samples were taken with a diamond blade saw at approximately 90 degrees to observed structural trends. Results reports are composited using weighted averages over the length of sample as reported. 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. Fire assay and Aqua Regia ICP analyses were completed by Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) who are ISO 17025 accredited and/or certified to 9001: 2008.
