Alberta Star Intersects 52.00 Meters of 0.30% Copper at the Camel Back-IOCG & Uranium Target at Glacier Lake, NT

February 13th, 2008

Alberta Star Development Corp. (the “Company”) listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (ASX), on the OTCBB (ASXSF) and on the Frankfurt Exchange (QLD), is pleased to report that the Company has received assay results from thirteen of sixteen holes from the 2007 summer/fall drill program at the Eldorado Camel Back IOCG & uranium target situated on the Company’s Glacier Lake property in the Northwest Territories. The 2007 drilling program has confirmed additional widespread poly-metallic IOCG & uranium style mineralization at Camel Back. The Company has intersected multiple zones of poly-metallic mineralization that is associated with zones of strong hydrothermal alteration and brecciation that are locally enriched in silver, copper, lead, zinc, cobalt, uranium and vanadium. Multiple zones of sulfide mineralization outcrop in semi-continuous gossanous zones for over 3.5 kilometers in length. The Camelback IOCG target is approximately 3.5 kilometers in length and 1 kilometer in width. This large IOCG target extends from north end of Glacier Lake to the eastern shore of Cameron Bay. The Camel Back target is located 7.5 km east of the Port Radium (Eldorado uranium mine). This IOCG target is associated with a large recently discovered geophysical anomaly and this geological feature has the potential of hosting a bulk tonnage IOCG and uranium target within a regional alteration signature.

The Company believes that the results from the current Phase 1 drill program confirm the extensive nature of hydrothermal alteration and poly-metallic mineralization associated within the Camel Back target at Glacier Lake. The presence of quartz-hematite-uranium veins indicates that widespread IOCG & uranium style of mineralization that is present on the Camel Back target at Glacier Lake.

Highlights from significant mineralized down-hole intervals from the Camel Back drill Program:
  • CB-07-4 intersected 6.0 meters of 0.37% zinc
  • CB-07-5 intersected 1.5 meters of 0.33% copper, 0.36% zinc and 3.9 g/ton silver
  • CB-07-6 intersected several mineralized zone including 2.0 meters of 0.40% copper, 3.09% zinc and 37.2 g/ton silver
  • CB-07-13a intersected 10.0 meters of 0.22% copper as well as 10.5 meters 0.13% copper and 0.25 meters of 0.12% U3O8
  • CB-07-14 intersected 52.0 meters of 0.30% copper as well as 31.55 meters of 0.34% copper
  • CB-07-15 intersected 13.30 meters of 0.21% copper as well as 1.55 meter of 0.69% copper and 20.6 g/ton silver, 4.2 meters of 0.37% copper, 0.23% V2O5 and also 1.5 meters of 0.23% V2O5
  • CB-07-16 intersected 13.5 meters of 0.15% copper

The accompanying table gives a summary of drilling highlights and assay results returned from 13 of 16 drill holes. An additional hole (CB-07-9) was drilled outside of the gossanous area to evaluate the extent of mineralization. This hole did not intersect any significant values. Drill holes #3- #8- #12 are still pending. The Company has now reported the results of 46 of 73 drill holes that were drilled during the 2007 summer and fall drilling campaign.

Note: True thickness is unknown.


All drill core samples were prepared, bagged and sealed by the Company’s supervised personnel and were transported by plane to Acme Analytical Laboratories Ltd. (“ACME”) in Yellowknife, NT where they were crushed and pulped, and then transported to ACME’s main laboratories in Vancouver, British Columbia for assaying. Acme is a fully registered analytical lab for analysis by ICP-MS and ICP-FA techniques. All samples were analyzed for a wide spectrum of minerals Mo, Cu, Pb, Zn, Ag, Ni, Co, Mn, Fe, As, U, Au, Th, Sr, Cd, Sb, Bi, V, Ca, P, La, Cr, Mg, Ba, Ti, Al, Na, K, W, Zr, Ce, Sn, Y, Nb, Ta, Be, Sc, Li, S and Rb by inductivity coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) following a four acid digestion (HF, HClO4, HNO3 and HCl). All analyses for Cu, Ag, Au, U, Co, Ni, Bi, Pb, Zn and W which exceeded upper limits were re-assayed using the ICPFA method to validate values.

Azimuth and inclination for CB-07-1 to CB-07-8 are 225 degrees and 50 degrees, respectively. CB-07-9 azimuth 45 degree inclination 45 degrees, CB-07-10 azimuth 225 degrees inclination 45 degrees, CB-07-11 azimuth 225 degrees inclination 70 degrees, CB-07-13 to CB-07-16 azimuth 315 degrees inclination 65 degrees. There are three NE-SW trending drilling rows at Camel Back: first row includes drill holes CB-07-01 to CB-07-09 with 200 meter spacing between adjacent holes. Drill holes CB-07-10 and CB-07-16 are located at 400 meters SE and 550 meters NW of the first row, respectively. The second row includes drill holes CB-07-11, CB-07-12 and CB-07-15 at 2375 meters SE of the first row. The third row includes drill holes CB-07-13 and CB-07-14 at 600 meters SE of the second row.

THE ELDORADO & CONTACT LAKE IRON OXIDE COPPER, GOLD, SILVER AND URANIUM PROJECTS

The Eldorado & Contact Lake Permit Areas are located on the east side of Great Bear Lake in Canada’s Northwest Territories. The permit areas are situated 470 kilometers north of the city of Yellowknife. The total size of the Eldorado & Contact Lake Permit area covers over 98,027.77 acres in size. The Eldorado IOCG Project area includes two past producing high grade silver and uranium mines, the Echo Bay Silver Mine which produced 23,779,178 ounces of silver and the Eldorado Uranium Mine which produced 15 million pounds of uranium and 8 million ounces of silver. The five past producing silver and uranium mines include the Echo Bay Silver Mine, Eldorado Uranium Mine, Contact Lake Silver and Uranium Mine, Bonanza and El Bonanza Silver and Uranium mines and are now included within the Company’s land package ownership. Olympic Dam style volcanic hosted hydrothermal iron-oxide copper, gold deposits are attractive targets for exploration and development due to their poly-metallic nature, high unit value and enormous size and grade tonnage potential. The Eldorado Mineral Belt has long been recognized by geologists, as one of the most prospective Iron oxide copper, gold, silver and Uranium regions in northern Canada.
