VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 5, 2013) - Eagle Star Minerals Corp (TSX VENTURE:EGE)(PINKSHEETS:ELGSF)(FRANKFURT:E6R) ("Eagle Star" or "the Company") is pleased to announce it has contracted Coast Mountain Geology of Vancouver, B.C., Canada to complete the NI 43-101 resource report on the south east portion of Bomfim Hill. Continuous pit opening within the 550,000 sq. meter east portion of the Bomfim Hill has returned high-grade phosphorite of up to 5 meters so far with mineralization open in all directions. Eagle Star intends to continue with test pits and trench opening in conjunction with geo-physical studies to delineate the NI 43-101 report as it regards this to be the best approach to achieve a three dimensional outlook of the high-grade mineralization.
The preliminary NI 43-101 resource report will be focused on the south-east portion of the Bomfim Hill (PZE), one of six high-grade targets that have been identified to date on the Bomfim claims by way of detailed mapping. Eagle Star plans to complete this report within three (3) months time and use its results to prove the economics of its plans to venture into production of direct application natural fertilizer from the high-grade mineralization at Bomfim Hill.
