Eagle Star Intersects High-grade Mineralization Near Surface and More Than Doubles Length of Mineralization at the Bomfim

Eagle Star Intersects High-grade Mineralization Near Surface and More Than 
Doubles Length of Mineralization at the Bomfim Project A1 Target 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Eagle Star
Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:EGE)(PINKSHEETS:ELGSF)(FRANKFURT:E6R)
("Eagle Star" or "the Company") is very pleased to announce that it
has significantly increased the mineralized zone at target A1 by more
than doubling its length to 570 metres (previously announced as 250
metres - see news release dated 12 November, 2012). Two pits opened
to the south of scout drilling holes BRF-03 and BRF-15 along strike,
based on targets developed from detailed mapping (1:10,000) and
recent geophysical work in the area, suggest the mineralized zone
extends significantly further. 
Pit AM-01 intersected near surface, high-grade mineralization with
XRF handheld readings of up to 15.37% P2O5 over 2.0 metres. Other
results also show the continuity of mineralized envelopes at
different cut off grades. Both pits end in the mineralized unit,
which based on drill and geophysical results 200m to the north, may
extend to over 20 metres depth (see press release dated February
26th, 2013).

XRF readings were collected systematically following recommended
procedures of the manufacturer, Innov-X Systems. Pits are channel
sampl
ed along meter intervals and for each sample three readings are
collected and averaged. Prior to analysis, the sample collected is
homogenized, dried (using microwave oven) and manually crushed to
fine grain. The composite grade for the pit is reached by weighted
averaging of the values obtained for each sample. The handheld XRF
analyzer is an Olympus Delta model and was calibrated according to
Innov-X Systems in-house calibration procedure. The Company conducts
field XRF analysis using industry recognized sample preparation and
analysis protocols, and has conducted sufficient quality control
using the XRF method to believe that although the method cannot be
relied upon to have the equivalent precision and accuracy of a
certified analytical laboratory, the results are of sufficient
quality to direct exploration pending analytical laboratory
confirmation.

CONCLUSIONS 
"These latest results from our A1 Target validate yet again the
quality of work performed by our team in the field. Furthermore, the
results confirm the value of information obtained through detailed
mapping and geophysics and how important it is for our team to
perform these tests over selected high-grade targets at our Bomfim
Project," comments Dr. Campos, an expert in sedimentary phosphate
mineralization and Technical Director of the Company. "I think the
addition of these two pits in the northern block demonstrate the
potential for the project to expand in scale as we move towards a
resource calculation."
