Preliminary Titan 24 DICP results extremely encouraging at Porphyry Pearl



    TSXV: SFR

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 27 /CNW/ - Management of Starfire Minerals Inc. (the
"Company") is pleased to report receipt of the preliminary results from the
Titan DCIP (Direct Current Induced Polarization) survey conducted by Quantec
Geoscience Ltd. on the PP Zone of the Company's Porphyry Pearl Copper - Gold
Property, as announced in the Company's news release of August 4th, 2009. The
survey is Phase I of the program recommended in the NI 43-101 compliant report
prepared by James A. Turner, P.Geo. The 14-claim, 6,024 hectare Porphyry Pearl
Property lies within the Toodoggone River Area of the Omineca Mining District,
approximately 60 km north-northwest of Northgate Minerals Corporation's Kemess
South Mine.
    The Quantec survey was conducted with an "a-spacing" of 50 meters vs. 100
meters in the previous survey done in 2006. The closer a-spacing resulted in
an increased data density over the previous survey by a factor of four, thus
greatly increasing the resolution to depths of 500 to 700 meters. As
anticipated, this survey will allow much more precise targeting of Phase II
follow-up drilling planned to total 5,000 metres in 12-15 holes to extend the
PP Zone.
    The survey was conducted between August 5th and August 13th 2009 and
consisted of four 2.5-km lines spaced 400 meters apart on sections 3400, 3800,
4200 and 4600 North and bracketing the 2007-2008 drilling on sections 3800 and
3900 North. The preliminary results have been interpreted by the Company to
indicate a significant chargeability anomaly over the entire 1,200 meter
strike that is open to the north and south, averaging approximately 400 meters
wide and 220 meters thick at an average depth to the top of the anomaly of 130
meters. Significantly, the survey indicates that the 2007-2008 drilling
program did not intersect the most chargeable portion of the anomaly, nor did
it close off the target to the west. Of particular interest is section 4200
North, where a 126-meter vertical hole (MM-2) drilled in 1974 by Sumac Mines
Ltd. and sampled in 1981 by Kidd Creek Mines Ltd. reports an average of 1.23
g/t gold and 0.09% copper over 54.3 meters from 53.2 to 107.5 meters. The
intersection lies approximately 50 meters to the west of the edge and outside
of the interpreted chargeability anomaly. The analytical results of hole MM-2
predate the implementation of NI 43-101 and cannot be relied upon.
    Drilling to date on the Porphyry Pearl Zone has indicated a mineralized
body over a strike of 240 meters and a width of at least 70 meters to a depth
of 350 meters below the bedrock / overburden interface, the average depth of
the overburden being 34 meters (see Company release of August 4th, 2009). The
mineralized body as interpreted by drill results lies both within and adjacent
to the chargeability anomaly and is open to the north, south and west, as well
as to depth.
    The Company is extremely encouraged by these preliminary results as they
support a minimum target size of 250 million tonnes. The reader is cautioned
that this is not a mineral resource or reserve estimate and it is conceptual
in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral
resource and it is uncertain that further exploration will result in the
discovery of a mineral resource. Consequently, the Company is planning to
implement Phase II of the program as recommended by the above-mentioned 43-101
report.

Rush, P. Geo.
