Exploration Results on Roberts Lake, Quebec Identifies up to 63.8% Fe Iron Ore Mineralization
-- 24 samples were taken and significant values were recorded on the "Magnetite Scale" of a KT-10 Plus magnetite susceptibility meter. KT-10 values correlated well with the Fe assay values. Six samples showed Fe values higher than 40% Fe. -- The level of impurities in the samples such as sulphur and phosphorous were extremely low indicating the final product would be ideal for blending with lesser quality iron ores. -- A ground based magnetic survey will be conducted to determine the depth and extent of the mineralization.
VANCOUVER, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Robert L. Card, President of Arrowstar
Resources Ltd., (“Arrowstar” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AWS), is pleased
to report that Phillip Thomas, Vice-President Exploration and Director
has completed the chemical analysis on the rock chip samples collected
at the Roberts Lake property in Ungava Region, Quebec, Canada. This
property is on a category two land classification where mining is
The results are very encouraging. The chemistry of the top six samples
are as follows:

The high silica can be removed when the ores are crushed to the correct
size for export. Sample one has the correct specification for direct
shipping without any beneficiation. The geophysics survey will
determine the likely extent of this section of the mineralization.
The known deposits and more prospective areas are those areas where the
iron formation has been deformed and is now flat-lying, or slightly
dipping with a strike to the NNE. This is where sample one in the
above table was collected.
Samples are being prepared for the Davis Tube test that will indicate
the magnetic beneficiation suitability. These results will be released
when they become available.
