Half-yearly Report

30 September 2014

                             ALL STAR MINERALS PLC                             

                  ("All Star", the "Group" or the "Company")                   


All Star Minerals Plc (ISDX: ASMO), the ISDX Growth Market Company with a focus
on Natural Resources, is pleased to announce its Interim Results for the six
month period from 1 January 2014 to 30 June 2014.

Chairman's Statement

The past 6 months have continued to be a difficult period for listed junior
resource companies. This is despite increased IPO activity in markets globally
and improving economic indicators.

The board is very aware of the issues that the Company faces and continues to
review ways in which All Star can achieve its corporate objectives going

However, despite this challenging environment, All Star has been active in the
period under review.

The Company's primary focus during the period under review was on the "Big One"
project, originally announced on 12 November 2013 and the Peter Craigie Mine
announced on 31 March 2014.

The Big One

Pursuant to an agreement dated 1st November 2013, NQ Mines Pty Ltd ("NQ
Mines"), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company agreed to acquire a tenement
(Mining Lease 5481, Mt Isa District), located in Queensland Australia for a
consideration of Au$150,000. The tenement is known as the "Big One".

NQ Mines paid a Au$10,000 non-refundable deposit in relation to the agreement.
On completion of the acquisition NQ Mines will pay the remaining Au$140,000,
which was anticipated to be payable by 1 May 2014.

On 16 June 2014 the Company announced that it had agreed to extend the
completion date to 31 December 2014 in order to provide the vendor further time
to renew licences and obtain the relevant transfer consents.

About the "Big One"

The Big One is situated on a North-East striking fault structure, which lies
sub parallel and approximately 11 kilometres from the Mount Gordon Fault Zone.
The deposit lies in the Myally Subgroup within the dolomitic, feldspathic
sandstones and siltstones of the Upper Lochness Formation and the feldspathic
quartzites and sandstones of the Whitworth Quartzite. Fault structures stand
proud as hills above the lower lying unfaulted sediments.

The outcropping mineralisation at The Big One is predominantly copper lode
within vesicular basalt of a fault gouge. The dominant copper mineralisation is
malachite, whilst chalcocite and azurite are also present.

Peter Craigie

On 31 March 2014 the Company announced that it had entered into an option
agreement on the Peter Craigie Mine, located in North West Queensland. The
consideration for the option was AS$15,000 with a further AS$145,000 payable
should the Company exercise its option.

Peter Craigie Mine is a mining lease covering 119 acres in North West
Queensland, Australia. The project is located 15km north of Dajarra, a small
town some 150km south of Mount Isa, a city that hosts a number of major copper
and base metal mines including Mount Isa Mines.

On 5September 2014 All Star announced that the board had decided not to proceed
with exercising the option to purchase the project based on analysis of
drilling results.

Other developments

On 13 August 2014 the Company announced that its 53 per cent. subsidiary
undertaking -Blue Doe Gold PLC had obtained shareholder consent to dispose of
the Blue Doe, Eagle Hawk, and Edward tenements to NQ Minerals Pty Ltd.

These tenements were disposed of for a consideration of 40,000,000 ordinary
shares in NQ Minerals Pty Ltd representing 9.09 per cent of NQ Minerals Pty
Ltd's issued share capital, an Australian company controlled by Mr Walter


The consolidated financial results for the period from 1 January 2014 to 30
June 2014 show a loss after taxation attributable to equity holders of the
parent of £194,818. The basic loss per share was 0.05p. The loss is
attributable to ongoing administrative costs associated with the running of the
Group, and exploration expenses.

On 19 February 2014 the Company announced that it had entered into a
convertible loan agreement with Valiant Investments PLC and received £20,000,
repayable by 14 May 2014. The Company has agreed to pay all interest on the
coupon after the maturity date until 14 November 2014 in cash. If the
Convertible Loan Note remains outstanding at this date it will accrue interest
at a rate of 20 per cent per annum.

On 5 March 2014 the Company announced that it had agreed to extend the terms of
3 Convertible Loan Notes with an aggregate principal of £100,000 to maturity
dates in July 2014. The Company is pleased to announce that the holders have
agreed to further extend the term of the loans for a further 6 months - with
maturity dates in January 2015. A separate announcement will be made in
relation to this extension.

On 10 April 2014 the Company announced that it had raised £180,000 through the
issue of 226,000,000 new ordinary shares in the Company at a price of 0.08
pence per share.

The Company is carefully managing its working capital and is seeking to raise
further funds in the near future.


Whilst the Company has been active within the reporting period, the board have
also been giving serious consideration about the long term direction of the

To this end, the board are continuing to appraise the asset base to ascertain
whether the disposal of the remaining tenements given the early stage nature
and limited exploration work having been done, is the right choice for the

Presently the funding climate for early stage exploration juniors continues to
remain frustrating and challenging at the same time. Therefore, the board has
to keep this in mind with respect to our exploration commitments.

More positively and forward looking, the board is also actively looking at a
number of attractive large projects with a key focus being on near term
production/cash flow visibility or project scalability based on sound
geological technical data being available to review.
