Alberta Star Samples 2.35% Copper, 0.33% Zinc and 134.2 g/ton Silver at High Grade Poly-Metallic Discovery Zone at Contact Lake, NT

February 11th, 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 on grab samples received from the Mile Lake IOCG prospect where the Company discovered a new high grade poly-metallic breccia that is rich in copper, molybdenum, lead, zinc, silver and tungsten. (NR- Nov 16, 2006). The Mile Lake IOCG prospect is situated on the Company’s Contact Lake property on the south side of Echo Bay. Field work and sampling in 2007 has confirmed additional widespread poly-metallic mineralization in grab samples at several target areas at Mile Lake.

The Mile Lake Breccia is a prospect in which poly-metallic mineralization and alteration is intermittently exposed for over 2 kilometers in strike length, within a regionally extensive laminated volcaniclastic tuff. The mineralization occurs within the same suite of volcano-plutonic rocks that host other poly-metallic zones in the Eldorado & Contact lake mineral belt, including the former El Bonanza Silver- Uranium (U-Ag) and the Eldorado Uranium (U-Ag- Cu- Co- Ni- Bi) mines.

The Company is reporting poly-metallic assay values from the sampling program which includes 2.35% copper, 0.33% zinc and 134.2 g/ton silver as well as 1.01% copper, 1.24% lead, 1.31% zinc, 72.1 g/ton silver also, 0.99% copper, 0.52% lead, 0.58% zinc and 43.8 g/ton silver.

Metal values. Gold $920.30 US per ounce, Copper $3.48 per pound, Silver $17.13 US per ounce, Cobalt $48.75 US per pound, Zinc $1.03 US per pound, Lead $1.32 US per pound and Uranium $75.00 US per pound as of February 8, 2008.

Previous drilling results (see NR-Nov16/06) confirmed the poly-metallic nature of the mineralization and demonstrated the widespread distribution of IOCG associated mineralization in the Eldorado & Contact Lake district. The Mile Lake Breccia is open for drilling along a strike length of greater than 2 kilometers within a 100 to 200 meter wide horizon. This is one of a number of large IOCG & uranium targets that are emerging at Contact Lake, that are characterized by two to six metals within the target horizon.

In 2006 the Company collected over 60 surface rock samples from the Mile Lake property that were analyzed during the program with assayed values to a maximum of 15.34% copper, 1.90% lead, 5.71% zinc, and 293.0 g/ton silver. In addition to grab sampling, chip sampling was carried out along an exposed trench which produced the following average values over 3 meters: 3.48% copper, 0.70% lead, 0.78% zinc, and 23.0 g/ton silver and 0.12% molybdenum.

The Company has shipped over 10,000 surface exploration samples from the 2007 exploration program to ACME Analytical Laboratories for assaying. A number of mineralized poly-metallic zones have been encountered in its drill core and in surface exploration sampling. Many of the samples returned high values that were over normal detection limits and were sent for re-assaying to confirm results. The Company will be releasing the results from additional IOCG targets examined at Eldorado & Contact Lake from 2007, upon receipt of assay and re-assay results.

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 volcanic hosted hydrothermal iron-oxide copper, gold style of 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.
