Vanstar Mining Announces Additional Drill Results and Identifies New Zone at Bousquet-Odyno

Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - August 31, 2022) - Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (TSXV: VSR) (OTCQX: VMNGF) (FSE: 1V8) ("Vanstar", or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from its drill program at Bousquet-Odyno project. The results received to date have identified at least 5 mineralized zones, including a newly defined zone to the south-west of the Main zone (the "Zone D"). Today's results include data from 17 drill holes, with assay results pending from a further 14 holes.

Highlights include:

Zone A
BO-22-81: 27.0 m @ 1.36 g/t Au, including 13.5 m @ 2.05 g/t Au, and including 6.0 m @ 3.18 g/t Au

Main Zone
BO-22-88: 7.5 m @ 1.99 g/t Au

Zone D
BO-22-80: 10.5 m @ 2.00 g/t Au, including 6.0 m @ 2.97 g/t Au
BO-22-78: 9.5 m @ 1.37 g/t Au, including 3.5 m @ 2.52 g/t Au

Drilling in 2022 has identified wide intercepts of mineralized quartz stringer zones in most zones. In the main zone, drilling has both identified broad high-grade gold at depth (see previous new releases on May 30, 2022 and June 20, 2022) and has defined continuity of multiple stringer zones. Zone A includes one of the widest intercepts on the project with 27 m grading 1.36 g/t Au in hole BO-22-81. The newly defined Zone D is of particular interest where holes BO-22-78 and 80 have intercepted 9.5 m grading 1.37 g/t Au and 10.5 m grading 2.00 g/t Au, respectively, in proximity of historical hole 80-3, which intercepted 6.0 m grading 3.38 g/t Au. This zone may be a faulted continuation of the Main Zone with potential to expand or it can also be a cross-structure which opens new targets. See Figure 1 for a plan map indicating the location of released hole and Table 1 for a list of results to date from the current drill program.

J.C. St-Amour, President and CEO, said "We are pleased with the results of the drill program to date. We are finding more wide intercepts of mineralized stringer zones that complement previously reported high grade intervals on the property. In addition to highlighting high-grade potential at depth, all zones remain open along strike with the possibility that they may join. Zone D is a newly defined area with multiple wide intercepts of mineralization with significant growth potential. In addition, drilling completed to date has been relatively shallow in comparison to other mines in the region."

The drill program is now complete and a number of samples are currently in the lab pending analysis. Results announced to date represent approximately 5,300 m of a total of 9,136 m drilled in this program. The Company will announce further results as they become available.

The Bousquet-Odyno project is located approximately 6 km from IAMGOLD Corporation's ("IAMGOLD") Westwood mine and processing facilities. The following video demonstrates the proximity of the Bousquet Odyno project to regional infrastructure and the Westwood mill.
