Toronto, May 23, 2008.  Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK, the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that surface sampling on its optioned Tilt Cove Property has returned high grade gold (up to 69.39 g/t) and copper (up to 10.4%) assays from surface grab samples obtained during a recent prospecting program. This program was initiated to evaluate known mineralized areas in and around the past-producing Tilt Cove Mine site and test prospective areas for new mineralization. Historically the property has seen exploration targeting base metal mineralization with little or no assaying for gold. These gold assays indicate that there is strong potential to host gold mineralization throughout the Tilt cove property.

All samples were sent to Eastern Analytical Ltd., an accredited laboratory in Springdale, Newfoundland.  The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish and the base metals were analyzed utilizing acid digestion and an atomic absorption finish.

Alexander Stares, President and CEO of the Corporation, said “We’re very encouraged by the results of this first phase of prospecting. The significant copper assays accompanied by these new gold assays, leads us to believe this represents a new opportunity to evaluate the Tilt Cove Property for its gold potential.”  A second phase of prospecting and evaluation is planned in early June, once snow conditions improve.  Meanwhile a detailed compilation is ongoing.
