About Estrella Gold Corporation (TSX-V: EST) Exploration is risky and Estrella is seeking to increase the chances of success as a "Prospect Generator" focused on gold exploration in Latin America. Estrella identifies and acquires new mineral properties, and then conducts initial, low-cost exploration to define a potential new deposit. Once defined, Estrella forms joint ventures with other companies that will provide funding and reduce Estrella's risk and expenditures. The Prospect Generator business model allows Estrella to aggressively seek the next major discovery. Estrella has thirty-five exploration properties in Perú, with thirty-two held in venture agreements, most in a strategic exploration alliance with Cliffs Natural Resources Exploration Inc. Of the four properties held 100% by Estrella, the Company also established a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource containing a minimum of 313,000 ounces of oxide gold at its Colpayoc Project in Peru (from 19.3 Mt @ 0.5 g/t gold, NI 43-101 Inferred Resource, 2011 Global Geotechnologies Inc.; News Release dated 12/21/2011). The Company has 24.1 million shares issued and outstanding on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V: EST). Mr. Keith A.
