    Potential Kimberlite Pipes Identified At Ferguson Lake Project Nevoro
    Shareholder Vote Set For September 29, 2009
    

    TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2009 /CNW/ - Starfield Resources Inc. (TSX: SRU /
OTCBB: SRFDF) today announced results from the detailed geophysical survey
flown at the Company's Ferguson Lake Project in Nunavut earlier this year, and
provided an update on the pending acquisition of Nevoro Inc.

    
    DIGHEM Survey
    -------------
    

    During April 2009, Fugro Airborne Surveys completed a helicopter-borne
geophysical survey in the Y Lake area of the Company's large Ferguson Lake
Project, located 240 km west-southwest of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. This detailed
program consisted of combined DIGHEM electromagnetic and Horizontal Magnetic
Gradiometer surveys totaling 4,729 line kilometers.
    In addition to better defining the geology within the survey area,
Fugro's recently completed processing and interpretation of the data has
identified 14 resistivity anomalies. These anomalies are potentially
significant, since their size, shape and apparent continuation to depth may be
indicative of kimberlitic intrusive features. Anomaly M4 is particularly
encouraging since it is located approximately 1.5 kilometers up-ice of till
sample TDS5-126, which contained the previously reported micro-diamond found
during mineralogical studies by SGS Minerals Services.
    "The survey results are both encouraging and useful," said André
Douchane, President and CEO. "In addition to gaining more information on Y
Lake and the major structures in the survey area, we have a potential
kimberlite pipe located exactly where it should be based on our diamond
discovery. This is very good news as we continue to look for an appropriate
joint venture partner to help us further explore the potential for diamonds at
Ferguson Lake."
    "Detailed ground reconnaissance is warranted for each of the anomalies
identified in the survey results," said Ray Irwin, Vice President of
Exploration. "If we obtain positive results from the reconnaissance, a
preliminary drilling program may also be undertaken on the most prospective
targets to determine if they are diamondiferous."

    
    Nevoro Acquisition
    ------------------
    

    On September 3, 2009, a Notice and Management Proxy Circular was filed on
SEDAR for Nevoro's Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on Tuesday,
September 29, 2009.
    Subject to an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the votes cast by Nevoro
shareholders, plus court approval and fulfilment of all other conditions of
closing, the transaction should be completed on or about October 5, 2009.
    The combination of Starfield's published resource of 44.2 million tonnes
and Nevoro's historical resource estimate (non 43-101 compliant) of 107.4
million tonnes provides a potential base metal resource of 151.6 million
tonnes.

    
    Additional benefits of the transaction include:

    -   Expanded and geographically diversified resource base
    -   Two large projects in favourable geological settings
    -   Significant potential for multiple exploration and development
        projects
    -   Opportunity to apply Starfield's solvent extraction technology at
        Nevoro's Stillwater Complex
    -   Cost savings with reduced administrative expenses and one management
        team
    -   Increased share trading liquidity
