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
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.
