About Redstar Gold Corp.
Redstar is a well-financed junior exploration and development company with a portfolio of high-grade projects in Alaska and Mexico.  The company’s flagship asset is the 100% controlled Unga Gold Project on Unga and Popof Islands in Alaska.  The project hosts an intermediate sulfidation epithermal gold deposit, located within the district-scale property that encompasses 240km2 across the two islands. Additional targets on the property include porphyry, high sulphidation and intermediate sulphidation epithermal veins. On Unga Island, priority targets include: the SH-1 and Aquila high-grade gold zones, both on the Shumagin Trend, the former Apollo-Sitka mine, which was Alaska’s first underground gold mine and the Zachary Bay porphyry gold-copper district.  The gold mineralization at the Centennial Zone is located on neighbouring Popof Island, within four kilometres of infrastructure and services at Sand Point.

In Mexico, the company owns 100% of three early stage epithermal projects in Sonora that are highly prospective for gold and silver.  Cumaro forms part of the El Picacho district, while the Oso Negro and La Lola projects are also prospective for epithermal gold-silver mineralization.
