Starfield Resources Provides Additional Core Assay Results From Moonlight
Drill Program


Intervals Grading up to 87.5 g/t Ag At Engels Property

TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2009 /CNW/ - Starfield Resources Inc. (TSX: SRU/OTCBB: SRFDF) ("Starfield", "the Company") today announced additional assay results from the Company's drill program at its Moonlight copper project in Plumas County, California.

The project, situated 167 km northwest of Reno, Nevada, contains three advanced stage copper targets - the Engels Mine, the Superior Mine, and the Moonlight Valley Deposit. Three angle holes were completed at Engels during the 2009 short drilling program, and initial copper assays for the first two holes were released on November 25. Most notably, assays for hole ME09-02 averaged 3.26% Cu over a 74.3 foot interval and 11.25% Cu over a 9.7 foot interval.

Table 1 (below) provides silver assay results from the same two holes. The intervals listed are drill core lengths and do not necessarily depict true width.

             Hole No.   From (f)   To (f)   Interval (f)   Ag (g/t)
             ME09-01      98.0     140.0       41.0         40.9
                         158.5     176.0       17.5         54.5
             ME09-02      42.0      74.3       32.3         61.8
                          79.3      89.0        9.7         87.5

Hole ME09-02 also encountered several minor intercepts of gold ranging from 1.5 g/t to 3.6 g/t. Assays from hole ME09-03 are still pending.

"These results provide an interesting additional metal credit to supplement the previously announced copper grades," said André Douchane, President and CEO. "As previously disclosed, we'll spend the winter taking a hard look at the geology of both the Engels and Superior mines, so that we can make the best use of our exploration funds next spring when we follow up on these intercepts."

Starfield's diamond drilling, logging and sampling was overseen by Ray Irwin, BSc, P.Geo, a Qualified Person in accordance with NI 43-101, who has reviewed this news release. The samples were prepared at the facilities of ALS Chemex in Reno, Nevada, and shipped to ALS Chemex in North Vancouver, Canada for analysis.
