Uranium Star Releases 15 Additional Trench Results on Green Giant Vanadium Project



    TORONTO, June 22 /CNW/ - Uranium Star Corp. (OTCBB:URST) (FRANKFURT:YE5)
("Uranium Star" or "the Company") announces it has received results from 15
additional trenches on its Green Giant Vanadium Project in Madagascar.

    Significant Vanadium Values Confirmed

    A total of 21 trenches have been established to date. All have been
mapped, sampled and analyzed. The Company is greatly encouraged by the
recently received trench results that are confirming that the host structure
along its entire 21 km strike length contains vanadium values of economic
interest.

    Highlights of Trench Results

    A highlight of returned analytical results include the following; Trench
21 with 1.08% V(2)O(5) over 51 metres; Trench 19 with 0.77% V(2)O(5) over 105
metres; Trench 15 with 0.56% V(2)O(5) over 54 metres; and Trench 7 with 0.41%
V(2)O(5) over 150 meters. A complete list of trench results can be viewed on
the table enclosed below.
    Extensive trenching, using two mechanical excavators, is being conducted
over anomalous vanadium trends and their strike extensions defined by the 2008
drilling program as well as geophysical and geochemical surveys. Initial
analytical results have been received utilizing the Company's hand-held XRF
units. Past experience indicates that these units very adequately generate
vanadium values that can be utilized with confidence. A comparison of the 2008
drill results between the XRF and commercial laboratory assays was very
strong.
    Results from the initial 6 trenches were released in the Company's press
release of May 27, 2009.
    Trenches TR-09-01 to 08 and TR-09-11,12 and 13 were established in the
southern zone of the Property. They represent a strike length of 4.2
kilometers with the first 9 trenches mentioned having a strike length of 1.2
kilometers. Trench 12 is a further 1.2 kilometers to the north and Trench 13
is 1.8 km north of Trench 12. The Central Zone is 5.5 km north of Trench 13
and trenches represent a strike length of 900 meters. The North Zone is 6.8 km
north of the Central Zone and has currently been trenched over a strike length
of 1km.
    Additional trenching is ongoing and will infill between the three zones
mentioned above to further validate that vanadium mineralization is as wide
spread as the geological, geophysical and geochemical signatures indicate.

    
    Significant Grades of Vanadium Mineralization Seen Over Widths Exceeding
    200 Meters
    

    The 2008 drilling program indicated that vanadium values within the
near-surface oxide zone are enhanced over those from primary mineralization.
The current trenching program aims to provide a detailed assessment of the
widths and grade of this style of vanadium mineralization and ultimately use
it to assist in designing a next-phase drill program. The 2008 drilling
results indicated that widths of near surface vanadium could be as high as
50-100 meters or more. The initial trench results from the south end of the
property indicate that the near surface mineralization has widths that are far
beyond the Company's initial expectations. Significant grades of vanadium
mineralization have been seen over widths exceeding 200 meters. An extensive
drill program is planned for later in the year that will allow Uranium Star to
calculate a compliant resource statement that can be used as an economic
assessment of the deposit.
    The following table defines the XRF results for vanadium from the 21
trenches established to date:
