Canstar Resources Intersects 1.1 g/t Gold Over 11.2 meters on Kenora Gold Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 11/15/17 -- Canstar Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROX) ("Canstar" or the "Company") is pleased to provide results from its 100%-owned Kenora Gold project located near Kenora Ontario. The program was designed to test a number of induced polarization ("IP") targets on the property as well as the mineralized extent of the Ace discovery on the Aviator structural trend. Highlights of the drill results include:

--  1.1 g/t gold over 11.2 meters in hole KG17-11 within a greater zone 14.7
    meters 0.9 g/t gold 
--  0.9 g/t gold over 4.5 meters in hole KG17-15 

Results are from eleven (11) holes, totaling 1,526 metres, drilled along the Aviator Gold Trend. This program was designed to test:

1.  The Company's Ace Showing which has demonstrated channel samples of 3.1
    g/t over 29.3 meters in 2015 (see press release dated December 3, 2015) 
2.  Numerous IP targets predominantly to the south portion of the Aviator
3.  A newly discovered zone during the Winter 2017 ("W17") drilling program
    wherein the Company intercepted sub-g/t mineralization of 0.7 g/t over 7
    meters approximately 140 meters to the northeast of the Ace Showing (see
    press release dated March 15, 2017). This was to be tested at depth. 

KG 17-11 was testing the newly discovered zone at depth, where it intercepted the 11.2 meter zone of 1.1 g/t within a 14.7 meter zone of 0.9 g/t gold, all of which occurs in low grade envelope of 0.6 g/t over 24.3 meters. KG17-15, which drilled 0.9 g/t over 4.5 meters, was drilled over the Ace Showing and represents the best results from the Ace Showing.

Drill holes testing the IP targets were successful in explaining the IP anomalies, which were represented by sulphide-bearing sedimentary rocks in the area. Although extensive, the mineralization returned only anomalous gold values.

Geologically, a key feature is notable within these results. The highlighted intercept of 1.1 g/t over 11.2 meters occurs downdip of the new zone discovered from the Winter 2017 drilling and represents and increase in grade at depth. Most interestingly this mineralization is associated with a quartz-diorite dike that has intruded the volcano-sedimentary package that runs parallel to the Aviator Trend. This was noted in the Winter 2017 drilling, and provided a geological target for this most recent round of drilling. This dike can be traced for several kilometers along the property. Results from the Ace, to date, indicate that the mineralization is typically near-surface.

Selected assay results are tabulated below:

Danniel Oosterman, President and CEO of Canstar states "It's notable that the quartz diorite dikes not only appear to act as structural pathways for mineralization, but these dikes are mappable and can be traced property-wide. They may represent a key-feature in future exploration for the project."

The Company is currently planning the next phase of exploration on its Mary March Project located in Newfoundland near the historic Buchans Mining Camp. Canstar will be submitting a work plan to it's JV partner, Glencore Plc for consideration.

The Mary March Project has excellent potential whose highlights include:

--  Historic drilling intercept (1996) by Phelps Dodge that intersected 9.63
    metres of mainly massive sulphides with an average grade of 10.1% zinc,
    1.68% lead, 0.64% copper, 122.1 g/t silver and 4.2 g/t gold (Mary March
--  2013 drilling by Canstar semi-massive sulphides intercepting 11.6 meters
    of 3.6% zinc, 0.1% copper, 0.8% lead, 25 g/t silver and 2 g/t gold, as
    well as 5.0 meters of 4.8% zinc, 0.4% copper, 1.0% lead, 71 g/t silver
    and 2 g/t gold (Mary March Zone); 
--  2013 drilling by Canstar of a stockwork sulphide zone intercepting 18.5
    meters of 1.6% zinc, 0.1% copper, 0.2% lead, and 2 g/t silver and
    another intercept of 18.9 meters of 1.6% zinc, 0.1% copper, 0.5% lead
    and 4 g/t silver (Nancy April Zone); 
--  2014 drilling by Canstar of semi-massive sulphides intercepting 5.5
    meters of 2.5% copper, 9 g/t silver and 0.7 g/t gold (Nancy April Zone);
--  2014 drilling by Canstar westward continuation of the stockwork sulphide
    zone intercepting 93.7 meters of 1.0% zinc, 0.1% copper, 0.2% lead and 3
    g/t Ag (Nancy April Zone); 
--  Numerous untested geophysical anomalies similar to anomalies associated
    with known mineralization. 

Canstar Resources will be holding a conference call on Monday, November 20  
 at 1:00pm EST to discuss the results and plans going forward.              
          The conference numbers are:
