Geschrieben am 12-05-2006

Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) -

- Ferguson Lake Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-Platinum-Palladium Project,
Nunavut, Canada



Starfield Resources Inc. (TSX.V: SRU and OTC BB:SRFDF)
("Starfield" or "the Company") today reported that with the closing
of the first portion (14,261,652 Dollars) of the 16,566,653 Dollars
placement, the 2006 Development and Exploration plan for the
Ferguson Lake Mineral District is now underway. This comprehensive
program is designed to advance the large magmatic sulphide base and
precious metal resource towards feasibility. The development of this
Copper-Nickel-Cobalt-Palladium-Platinum project will have a major
economic impact for Nunavut and Canada.

Recent Activities and Reports:

This year's supplies and fuel have been mobilized from Churchill,
Arviat and Rankin Inlet to Ferguson Lake. Starfield has received
approval from Nunavut regulators for the Company's camp to be
relocated from the temporary leased area on the island to a permanent
site on the West side of Ferguson Lake. Arctic-style Atco trailers
have been purchased and mobilized to the new site where a permanent
fully-winterized camp is being constructed proximinal to the West
Zone "Pit Area" development. In addition:

- Major Drilling Group International, of Moncton, New Brunswick, has
again been contracted for diamond drilling services. Drill crews are
on site.
- Crone Geophysics and Exploration Ltd., of Mississauga, Ontario, has
also been contracted for 2006. Survey crews have arrived on site
where they will provide SQUID ground EM geophysical surveying and
downhole PEM geophysical surveying of drill holes during the 2006
- Dr. N.C. Carter, independent P.Eng, will complete his NI 43-101
compliant report with resource estimates in May 2006. This report
will be filed on SEDAR.
- Dr. Isobel Clark of Geostokos Ltd., who is on retainer to the
Company, will present, her geostatistical evaluation and
recommendation report by the end of May 2006.


Robert Lo, P.Eng, the Company's independent geophysical contractor
has prepared a comprehensive report and interpretation of the Geotech
regional VTEM helicopter survey of more than 720,000 acres (about 60%
of the property). The report prioritized VTEM conductive trends and
targets and potential kimberlite anomalies. Regional and detailed
soil-till samples from the 1,300,000 acre property have been
geochemically analyzed and multi-element anomalies have been
identified. Coincident regional geochemical and airborne geophysical
anomalies have been prioritized for detailed ground geological
examination, geophysical surveying and diamond drilling. Dr. Al
Miller has again been contracted to conduct field mapping and
metallogenic evaluations.

Development Plans

Upon receipt of the Geostokos Ltd. report, the Company will use
the recommendations to guide the delineation drilling program
objective of moving the inferred resources into the indicated and
measured categories. The program's initial drilling will collect
massive sulphide samples from the West Zone "Pit Area" for further
metallurgical testing. Concurrently, hydrometallurgical leach testing
and process development is ongoing at laboratories in Kingston,
Ontario and in Quebec City. Testing will now be scaled up to 200

Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. are continuing with their
environmental and engineering site development evaluations. A legal
survey of West Zone mineral claims during 2006 will enable the
Company to apply for mining lease status. Pincock Allen & Holt, of
Denver, Colorado, is incorporating the 2005 drill information, the
N.C. Carter resource estimates, the Geostokos Ltd. report and
metallurgical results into a conceptual scoping study.

The Company's main focus in 2006 is to advance existing resources
towards feasibility, while the regional exploration strategy will
focus on project generation that will be of interest to potential
industry partners.
