IP Survey Defines High Priority Drill Target at Red Top Project, Arizona 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 3, 2014) - Desert Star
Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DSR) ("Desert Star" or the
"Company") announces that it has completed an Induced Polarization
("IP") Geophysical survey (completed by Zonge International) at its
Red Top project in Arizona (Figure 1). The survey identified coincident
chargeability and resistivity anomalies measuring approximately 1,400 meters
long, open in all directions (Figures 2 and 3). These anomalies are significant
because they are located within a zone of intense illite-pyrophyllite-bearing
alteration that is consistent with the geology typically seen in the upper
parts of porphyry copper systems. 
Red Top Survey Results 
The IP survey at Red Top produced a robust chargeability high of 21-49 msec
(Figure 3A) and a resistivity low of 32-200 ohm-m (Figure 3B). The anomaly
measures approximately 1,400 meters in length, occurs at surface on the
northern end of the line and is present at 400 meters depth on the southern end
of the line. The anomaly obtained from this survey are interpreted to be caused
by disseminated sulphides and consistent with mineralization associated with
porphyry copper systems.  
About IP Geophysics 
Induced polarization is a ground-based electrical geophysical method that can
be used to map subsurface geology and in some cases can detect mineralization.
Induced polarization occurs when a current passing through two electrodes in
the Earth is shut off and the voltage in the ground decays slowly rather than
instantaneously, which indicates that a charge has been stored in the rocks.
The presence of clay minerals and metallic-luster sulphide minerals including
major copper ore minerals in the subsurface can cause this phenomenon. IP is
frequently used in mineral exploration for porphyry copper deposits as it
assists in the delineation of areas of disseminated sulphide mineralization,
and helps vector exploration drilling into the core of the system. The Red Top
IP survey is designed to delineate the subsurface extensions of porphyry
systems that are exposed at surface (Figure 2). 
Red Top Survey Details 
The survey consists of one N-S dipole-dipole line 2.2 km long. Measurements
were made using a-spacing of 200 m for N = 1-8. IP measurements were made as
Time-Domain IP Chargeability collected at 0.125 Hz., and instrumentation
consists of a Zonge GDP-32II, multi-channel receiver. The signal source used
was a Zonge GGT-30, 30 KVA or a Zonge GGT-10, 10 KVA transmitter powered by a
ZMG-30 Kw or ZMG-9 Kw motor generator.  
About the Red Top Project 
The Red Top project consists of 148 unpatented federal lode mining claims
covering 1,172 hectares, located 8.5 km from the town of Superior, Pinal
County, Arizona, and is road-accessible year-round (Figure 1). The Red Top
project is situated 8 km northwest of the Resolution Copper Project, a joint
venture project owned by Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton, and which is one of the
world's largest undeveloped copper projects (Figure 1). The Red Top
project is under option from Eurasian Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EMX)(NYSE
MKT:EMXX).  The Company cautions that it is not implying that it will obtain
the same or similar results at its Red Top project as the Resolution Copper
