VANCOUVER, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - Management of Starfire Minerals Inc. (the
"Company") is pleased to report that it has commenced Phase I of the program
recommended in the NI 43-101 compliant report prepared by James A. Turner,
P.Geo. covering the Company's Porphyry Pearl Copper-Gold Project in the
Omineca Mining District, British Columbia. The report was made public on
August 4, 2009 and can be found at www.sedar.com. and on Starfire's website at
The Company's Porphyry Pearl Property lies within the Toodoggone River
Area approximately 60 km north-northwest of Northgate Minerals Corporation's
Kemess South Mine and consists of 14 mining claims covering approximately
Mr. Turner's report recommends a two phase program. Phase l consists of
detailed high-resolution IP bracketing the area of the significant drill
intersections (see previous release) for the purpose of increasing the
effectiveness of subsequent hole targeting. Accordingly, Quantec Geoscience
Limited mobilized to the Property on August 5th to conduct a Titan 24 DCIP
(Direct Current Induced Polarization) survey on four lines totaling 10
kilometers with a dipole spacing of 50 meters using the existing geophysical
grid. A case history using this technology for copper porphyry exploration at
Northgate Minerals Kemess North Zone is referenced at Quantec's website.
It is anticipated that this survey will allow more precise targeting of
Phase II follow-up drilling planned to total 5,000 metres in 12-15 holes to
extend the Porphyry Pearl Zone laterally. 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. The
zone is open to the northwest, southeast and southwest, as well as to depth.
