Urastar Starts Drilling Gold Properties in Mulatos Gold Belt

January 18, 2011 - Vancouver, Canada (Marketwire) - Urastar Gold Corp

("Urastar") (TSXV: URS) is pleased to announce that it is

starting a drill program to test its two gold properties located in

the Mulatos Gold Belt in Sonora State, Mexico. A total of 1500 m of

reverse circulation drilling is planned for the Jabali and Juliana

gold properties

El Jabali is a 70 hectare property located only 6 km from the Mulatos

gold mine of Alamos Gold Inc. (see location map at

www.Urastargold.com). This property covers the historic La Dura gold

mine where gold mineralization of similar character to that at the

Mulatos mine was previously mined on a small scale. An area of

historic workings, geochemical anomalies and gold showings 1 kilometer

in strike length has been defined. The initial holes will be drilled

to test for extensions of the La Dura mine and other outcrops of gold

mineralization in vuggy silica altered and brecciated rhyodacite.

The second property to be tested is Juliana, a 700 hectare property

located near to Jabali and only 7 km west of the Mulatos gold mine of

Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI) The La Juliana property covers silicified

vein breccias, with native gold filling late stage veinlets, within an

area of anomalies and gold showings that is 2 kilometers in strike

length. Juliana is currently being worked for free gold by local

miners. The first holes will test for extensions of the gold

mineralization currently being mined from shallow pits.
