TEXAS STAR RESOURCES ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF MINERAL CLAIMS STAKING

TEXAS STAR RESOURCES ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF MINERAL CLAIMS STAKING
 HOUSTON, Texas, Oct 1 /CNW/ - Texas Star Resources Corporation ("Texas Star") announces that it has completed staking 243 mineral claims consisting of 510,000 acres in the McKenzie Mining District near Point Lake in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Two major northwest-southeast fracture sets transect the property, one of which could be readily projected southeast to the BHP-DiaMet Lac de Gras diamond discovery area. Many intersecting smaller fracture sets trending northeast-southwest are also recognized on the property indicating the ground is structurally well prepared for intrusive bodies such as kimberlite.
 The 254 mineral claims that were mentioned in the Company's news release dated June 16, 1992 have been sampled and 412 samples delivered to Vancouver. These samples will be processed over the next two months with special emphasis on recovering pyrope garnets and chrome diopsides. Recovery of picro-ilmenite will be attempted at a later date.
 Texas Star now controls over 1,000,000 acres of mineral claims in the Point Lake area of the McKenzie Mining District.
 Cyprus Gold Company officially terminated its participation and interests in the Keystone Project, Pennington County, South Dakota. Eight core holes from surface and underground locations totaling 6882 feet were drilled. Vein intersections and gold values ranged from 5 feet of 0.133 opt to 19 feet of 0.34 opt. Texas Star has decided to withdraw from the project primarily because of very poor continuity of vein widths and values both horzontally and vertically. Project exploration expenditures since inception by the Company were less than $50,000.
 Texas Star Resources Corporation is listed on the Vancouver Stock Exchange under the symbol TXS.
