IP Survey Defines High Priority Drill Target at Red Top Project, Arizona

IP Survey Defines High Priority Drill Target at Red Top Project, Arizona 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 --   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
Project.
