VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 -- Redstar Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: RGC) ("Redstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional high-grade gold results from the ongoing 2013 diamond drill program at the Newman Todd property in Red Lake, Ontario.

Highlights: (see Table 1 for significant results)-- NT-130 intersects several greater than 5 g/t intervals including 1.0 metre of 10.9 g/t gold and 1.0 metre of 7.02 g/t gold-- NT-131 intersects 1.0 metre of 9.1 g/t gold-- NT-132 intersects 3 greater than 10 g/t intervals including 0.5 metres of 15.5 g/t gold and 0.5 metres of 63.1 g/t gold and 0.5 metres of 11.9 g/t gold.-- NT-133 intersects 1.0 metre of 11.9 g/t gold-- NT-134 intersects 1.0 metre of 11.6 g/t gold-- NT-135 intersects 1.0 metre of 12.2 g/t gold

Discussion of Results:

Drilling to date has outlined a 1.8 km long gold bearing zone referred to as the Newman Todd Structure ("NTS"). The NTS remains open to the southwest and has been intersected to a vertical depth of approximately 900 metres. High-grade gold occurs within silica-sulphide and magnetite replacement zones within the highly altered NTS. The alteration intensity, width of the NTS and the style of gold mineralization is similar in all drillholes across the strike and at depth.

R. Bob Singh, P.Geo., President of Redstar, states, "Results from Newman Todd continue to show evidence of a large scale high grade gold system. At shallow depths we are seeing wider zones of + 1 g/t gold material which is consistent with 'Red Lake' style gold system as they tend to become more focused at depth and thus higher grade. We look forward to continued great results from this property."

Exploration work at the Newman Todd project is funded by the operator, Confederation Minerals Ltd. ("Confederation"). Pursuant to an option agreement with Redstar, Confederation can earn a 50% interest in the project by spending $5.0 million on exploration, paying Redstar a total of $250,000, and issuing Redstar 500,000 shares by November 2013. To date Confederation has spent in excess of $5.0 million on exploration on the project, paid Redstar $175,000 and issued Redstar 350,000 shares. Confederation can earn an additional 20% interest by producing a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) by November 2016.

Andrea Diakow, P.Geo., is the qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed the technical content of this news release. Core samples from the program were cut in half using a diamond cutting saw and were sent to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Red Lake, Ontario, an accredited mineral analysis laboratory. All samples were analyzed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA techniques. Samples returning over 3.0 g/t gold were analyzed utilizing standard Fire Assay-Gravimetric methods. Certified gold reference standards, blanks and field duplicates were routinely inserted into the sample stream as part of Confederation's quality control/quality assurance program.

About Redstar

Redstar has eleven gold projects in Nevada, the Unga project in Alaska and the Newman Todd project in the Red Lake District, Ontario. In Nevada, several projects are undergoing active exploration by partners including Newmont Mining and others. The Unga project in Alaska includes the high-grade Shumagin gold deposit, the Centennial disseminated bulk-tonnage gold deposit and the Apollo-Sitka high-grade gold vein system, which produced approximately 150,000 oz. of gold in the early 20th century.
