Klondike Star Dominion Gold Project Update

    SEATTLE, September 13 /CNW/ - Donald W. Flinn, P.Eng., Vice-President,
Operations for Klondike Star Mineral Corporation (OTCBB:KDSM) today announced
that field work is proceeding at the Dominion project, and is further
confirming the presence of multiple, continuous gold-bearing structures that
warrant testing by drilling. Work completed to date in 2007 consists of
detailed geological mapping, surveying, grid cutting, trenching, chip sampling
and bulk sampling. A rotary drill rig is scheduled to start at the property by
mid September, with 10 holes totaling 1000m planned.

    Drilling is scheduled for September at the JAE claims, which lie at the
headwaters of Dominion, Gold Bottom and Hunker creeks, all of which have been
significant producers of placer gold, and are still being actively mined. This
area of the Dominion project hosts at least seven parallel gold - (silver)
vein zones within an area of highly anomalous soil geochemistry that measures
about 1.5 kilometers/0.9 miles by 1 kilometer/0.6 mile. Two of these zones,
the Mitchell and Sheba have been outlined along hundreds of meters of length
by previous exploration efforts since 1900, including numerous trenches and
shallow shafts, direct shipping of hand selected silver-rich ore (7.2 tonnes
averaging 6090 g/t silver = 178 oz/ton), soil geochemistry and geophysics.
Only 3 shallow drill holes, directed at the high grade silver have previously
been drilled on the property. The Mitchell - Sheba trend will be the initial
focus of the drilling. The Mitchell zone is well known for impressive
specimens of visible gold, but has never been drilled. It is expected that
further surface work on the other parallel zones will result in additional
drill targets.

    Six bulk samples have been collected and processed at the JAE property
this year. The samples were collected from a variety of targets, including
major veins, subsidiary veins, and pyritic alteration zones located near
veins. The large size samples (up to 7 tonnes) are effective at accurately
indicating the grade of these targets, which contain coarse free gold.

    A grid with 15 kilometers/9.3 miles of line has been cut at the JAE
property for an IP geophysical survey. This survey will be conducted in the
2007 field season by Aurora Geosciences Ltd. of Whitehorse. The results of the
current survey will be integrated with those of an IP survey conducted on
widely spaced lines at the site in 1990. IP geophysics is known from the
earlier survey to be appropriate for this area, as the mineralized quartz
veins have gold-rich pyritic haloes which responded well to this method.

    Soil geochemical surveys and other investigations are in progress in
select areas of the Dominion project beyond the JAE property.

    Klondike Star, in conjunction with the University of British Columbia
Mineral Deposit Research Unit has been developing an exploration model for
this area that combines an improved understanding of the structural geology
with compilation of other data including airborne geophysics, geochronology,
petrology and placer gold characteristics and distribution. A geological map
at 1:20,000 scale has been produced for this area.

    The major mineralized structures at the JAE property have a well-defined,
north- northwesterly trend and steep easterly dip, with local en echelon
offsets to the veins. This clearly defined structural setting lends itself to
a straight-forward exploration approach, with drill targets and hole
orientations easily selected. One highlight of the exploration this season has
been the rediscovery of substantial mineralized quartz veins that were
trenched at some time in the past, but were not recorded in any of the
available property assessment reports. A thorough compilation of the existing
data has been ongoing for the past two years, as well as conventional and
differential GPS surveying of the extensive network of overgrown roads,
trails, trenches and vein deposits.

    About the Dominion Project

    The Dominion Project includes an advanced exploration stage target at the
JAE claims, as well as a large area with little previous exploration. Of
Klondike Star's eight projects, the Dominion ranks second in importance after
the Lone Star project. Dominion is comprised of 371 mineral claims involving
an area of 62.8 square kilometres/24.3 square miles, including the Mitchell
zone, Sheba zone, Dome Lode and Lloyd zone. All zones extend over large areas
with excellent opportunity for the existence of multiple mineralized zones,
along both strike and dip. They belong to a class of structures which have
potential for large, medium-to-low grade, gold bearing ore bodies.
