Confederation Minerals Ltd. And Redstar Gold Corp. Announce Acquisition Of Additional Lands Adjacent To The Newman Todd Gold Project, Red Lake, Ontario

Confederation Minerals Ltd (TSX.V:CFM) (www.confederationmineralsltd.com) and Redstar Gold Corp. (TSX:V RGC) are pleased to announce the purchase of a fifty percent (50%) interest in 18 mineral claims (the “Todd Property”) immediately adjacent to their Newman Todd gold exploration project near Red Lake, Ontario. High-grade gold has been intersected over a broad area in recent drilling on the Newman Todd project. Confederation holds an option granted by Redstar to acquire up to a 70% interest in the Newman Todd project ( see previous news releases). The new property acquisition is seen as strategic for future exploration.

Of the 50% interest acquired by the parties from the vendor, Mr. Ronald Gangloff, Confederation acquired an undivided 35% interest in the Todd Property (being 70% of the vendor’s interest) for the sum of $50,000 and 125,000 shares and Redstar acquired an undivided 15% interest in the Todd Property (being 30% of the vendor’s interest) for the sum of $70,000.

The remaining fifty percent (50%) interest in the claims is held by Rubicon Minerals Corporation. The Gangloff acquisition is subject to regulatory approval.

Confederation and Redstar recently finished their first phase of drilling on the Newman Todd project, bringing the total historical and recent drilling to a total of 33 holes (refer to recent Confederation and
Redstar press releases for all results of historic and recent drilling). All holes have intersected gold mineralization and very high grade results along a sheared and heavily altered trend (the Newman Todd
Zone) have been intersected over approximately 2 kilometers of strike length. Based on these results, a very aggressive drill program is being implemented for the balance of 2011. Confederation and Redstar
hope to have two drills operating on the property within two weeks.
