Star Minerals Group Ltd Announces the Appointment of Director

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 02/18/14 -- Star Minerals Group Ltd. ("Star" or the "Company") (CSE:SUV) is pleased to announce that Kazuo Machida ("Kaz" ) has been appointed as director of the Company effective February 11th, 2014.

Mr. Machida, MBA, worked with Itochu Corporation, one of the leading Japanese trading firms for more than 32 years. Based primarily in Tokyo, Kaz was involved with Itochu's highly competitive international trading business, specializing in the field of industrial minerals. During his career, he not only built up Itochu's international trade business, while based in Perth, Western Australia and in Singapore, but also launched many new development projects in joint venture with other leading international enterprises from around the world. Kaz is one of the pioneers in the rare earth trade in Japan, which is the most significant rare earth market after China. Itochu was the first leading Japanese trading company formally approved by the Chinese government as a friendly trading company in 1972, before the Treaty of Peace and Friendship was officially signed by both countries in August 1978. In the early 1980's, Kaz began importing rare earth products into Japan. After assuming senior executive and management positions in Tokyo, Osaka, and Singapore, he left Itochu and formed Kay Investment Limited to provide consulting service to trading and manufacturing companies. In 2006, he resumed trading rare earth oxides and metals from China to leading Japanese users and uses his considerable expertise in consulting for a diverse base of clientele, not just for rare earths, but for rare metals such as tantalum and lithium as well. Previous clientele of Mr. Machida's include prominent public companies such as Lynas Corporation Ltd., Arafura Resources Limited, and Great Western Minerals Group Limited, and private companies including Rincon Lithium Limited.

Jim Engdahl, President and CEO, states, "I am extremely pleased to welcome Kaz to the Board of Star. His in-depth knowledge of rare earth and rare metal supply chains, inside and outside China, and his direct connections to end users will be of immense value to Star as we focus on developing strategic mineral resources."
