CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 29, 2016) -


Groundstar Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:GSA) ("Groundstar" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the disposition of its recently drilled Manitoba well to a private oil and gas producer for cash proceeds of $300,000. These funds, in conjunction with the recent financing, are expected to provide Groundstar with the ability to seek out and bring focus to more meaningful new oil and gas opportunities.

In the Neilburg heavy oil area, Groundstar has suspended 75% of the wellbores due to low commodity pricing. The remaining on-stream production produced 24.8 barrels of oil per day net to Groundstar for the month ending January 2016. Production is expected to be brought back online as improved commodity pricing allows.
