Hillary Clinton's 'Spread the Wealth' Call to African Oil Firms Praised by Gold Star Resources Humanitarian Society

    "Oil and Gas Revenues Need To Become A Blessing Instead of a Curse in

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 13 /CNW/ -- "African oil and gas exploration companies
need to listen to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's call to spread the
wealth in African nations where there is a definite need for improved medical,
educational, and nutritional necessities," said Patrick Morris, spokesman of
the Gold Star Resources Humanitarian Society (www.goldstarresources.com) 
based in Vancouver, British Columbia.  "Oil and gas revenues need to be a
blessing instead of a curse in Africa.  The oil and gas industry operating in
Africa must directly help Africans help themselves by reinvesting its revenues
inside African countries," stated Morris.  U.S. Secretary of State Clinton
visited a number of African nations over the past week and specifically
advocated for oil revenues to directly improve the lives of all Africans.  The
Humanitarian Society was created as part of Gold Star Resources Corporation
(TSX-V;GXX; OTC Bulletin Board:   GXXFF) and operates as a nonprofit
organization seeking to contribute to the economic and social welfare of West
African nations.  Gold Star Resources is the first Canadian-based junior oil
and gas exploration company focusing on 'onshore' projects in West Africa.

    According to Morris, "African oil and gas exploration companies need to
reinvest their revenues inside Africa because that action will immediately
help the African people and galvanize economic growth on the African
continent.  It's critical for oil and gas companies, large and small, to look
beyond just the energy resource wealth in Africa.  We must as an industry help
Africans overcome economic and social challenges.  We must help African
governments create a positive environment for stable economic and political
growth.  Africa today is what Asia was in the 1980s, a region of tremendous
economic potential.  I'm calling on my own industry leaders to reinvest their
company revenues in the new Africa and become a true economic and investment

    Gold Star Resources Humanitarian Society recently announced that it will
assist West African communities within the boundaries of Gold Star Resource
Corp.'s initial permit area beginning in Liberia.  "We will expand the program
into our second largest concession acquisition, onshore Cote d'Ivoire and
communities in the District of Aboisso, near the border of Ghana," Morris
said.  "The Society's mission is to contribute to a better way of life for the
local people through humanitarian programs.  Funding will be deposited on an
ongoing basis to meet the needs of our agreements with the government."
