POST FALLS, Idaho, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Gold Corp. (OTC Markets: SRGZ) is pleased to announce commencement of drilling at its Longstreet property located 25 miles southeast of the Round Mountain mine in south-central Nevada. Initially, 12 infill and expansion holes will be drilled at Main, where an independent geologist's report prepared by Paul D. Noland, PG identified a mineralized material estimate of 3,500,000 short tons at an average grade of 0.053 oz/ton gold equivalent. "Mineralized material" as used in this press release, although permissible under the SEC's Industry Guide 7, does not indicate "reserves" by SEC standards. The Company cannot be certain that any part of the mineralized material at Longstreet will ever be confirmed or converted into SEC Industry Guide 7 complaint "reserves." Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of the mineralized material will ever be confirmed or converted into reserves or that mineralized material can be economically or legally extracted.
Drilling will be completed using a Reverse Circulation (RC) rig drilling angle holes across the steeply dipping vein sets. The target is a Round Mountain style open pit heap leach gold/silver deposit. Additional drilling at Main and at the North Target is scheduled for later this year or in the spring of 2012. Mapping and geochemical sampling at North indicates a target very similar to Main which Star has not yet drill tested. A helicopter assisted drilling program to test the Cyprus Ridge target is planned for the summer of 2012. Cyprus Ridge is a Midas style high grade gold vein target. Drilling will test for a "boiling zone" at depth. Surface mapping and geochemical sampling at Cyprus show vein widths up to 15 feet thick and gold values up to 0.33 oz/ton but average values are less than 0.03 oz/ton gold. A map showing the various targets at Longstreet can be found on the company's website www.stargoldcorp.com.
