ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwire - Nov 23, 2011) - Lone Star Gold, Inc. (OTCBB: LSTG) ("Lone Star" or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the Company's two Mexico-based gold-silver projects and related ongoing due diligence activities. The update highlights associated developments, timeframes and costs.


Current Shallow Drill operations have begun on the La Candelaria project. The Company's drill program plans on acquiring samples from up to 15 target areas. Toward that end, on-site ground crews have been constructing a new prepping area and have been working on developing better access roads to facilitate the drilling program. The 10-15 drill targets are targeted to reach a depth of 200 meters (~650 feet). The drill core samples will then be sent for lab analysis. Lone Star expects to incur some extra costs related to the drilling in terms of labor, fuel, transport, laboratory analysis, rentals, compressors and miscellaneous equipment. The Company has budgeted accordingly for these expenses, which will specifically include renting or purchasing a triple-axle trailer and acquiring two further trucks over the next week to transport needed equipment to the La Candelaria property.

Initial laboratory analysis results from the drill samples are expected back from the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, in mid to late December 2011.

Operational activities in January 2011 will include the commencement of 3-5 Deep Hole targets (600-700 meters; ~1970-2300 feet) to be drilled on the La Candelaria property. The drill targets will be confirmed once the Shallow Drilling results are fully analyzed. The Company is currently acquiring quotes for the costs associated with the drilling, and interviewing suitable drilling teams.

On January 11, 2012, Lone Star is due to make its next Work Commitment payment of $150,000, with a further property payment of $125,000 also due on the same date as described in the signed La Candelaria Definitive Agreement.


The Ocampo Property due diligence period continues. Previously announced positive results from the on-site team have been accentuated by further field work completed to date, which has vastly increased the Company's geo-chemical and geo-physical knowledge of the entire project. Currently, the process of selecting drilling targets has begun.

All samples acquired are being securely transported through Lone Star's satellite office in the city of Chihuahua to the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Over the next few weeks, data from the team's field work will continue to be analyzed, studied and mapped. Included among the results will be the analysis of quartz samples from the property's southeast zone, which is expected to provide insight on the best initial drilling targets.

"All projects are moving forward quickly and are looking promising," commented Daniel Ferris, Lone Star Gold's President. "While we're looking forward to receiving the ALS Chemex results on both projects, we're particularly interested to receive the Ocampo project results since we need to make a decision as to whether or not to purchase within the next month, which could effectively expand our position in the proven Sierra Madre Occidental mining region."
