Metals Creek Intersects 1.92 g/t gold over 94.0 meters, including two higher grade intervals at the Thomas Ogden Zone in Timmins, Ontario
Toronto, 15 February, 2012. Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Corporation”, TSXV: “MEK”) is pleased to announce final assay results from its 2011 diamond drill program on the Ogden Gold Project in Timmins, Ontario.
TOG-11-11, the final hole drilled on the Thomas Ogden zone, returned 1.92 g/t (grams per tonne) gold over 94.0m (meters) between a down hole depth of 78 m and 172 M. The zone is described as a strongly altered porphyry and sedimentary unit with associated pyrite, arsenopyrite with strong silicification and visible gold. Included in the intersection are two higher grade intervals of 8.83 g/t gold over 5.50m and 7.57 g/t gold over 7.0m.. Hole TOG-11-11 was drilled 25m below previously released (January 11, 2011) hole TOG-10-21 which intersected similar mineralization assaying 1.94 g/t gold over 75.85m, including 4.37 g/t gold over 23.4m.
Alexander (Sandy) Stares, President and CEO of the corporation states “Management is highly encouraged by the results of this latest round of drilling on the Thomas Ogden zone. The near surface, strongly altered zone shows good continuity between holes and remains open on strike. Step-out drilling, planned for this winter, will help establish the significance of the Thomas Ogden zone as well as the other gold zones at the Naybob Mine area located 5 km to the east.”
The Ogden Gold Project is under Option from Goldcorp Canada Ltd. and Goldcorp Inc. (“Goldcorp”). The Ogden Project covers eight kilometers of strike length of the Porcupine-Destor Break between Goldcorp’s Dome Mine Complex and Lake Shore Gold’s West Timmins development project. Metals Creek is earning a 50% interest in the Project by incurring $3.1 million in expenditures and issuing a combination of cash and shares totaling $460,000 over four years.
All split core samples were sent to Accurassay, an accredited laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. As part of the Corporations QAQC protocol, approximately 10% of the samples submitted for assay were also sent for check assays. Standards and blanks were inserted randomly into the sample shipments as part of the sampling protocol. Samples with fire assay results above 1.0 g/t gold are re-analyzed using a gravimetric finish and samples with fire assay results above 5.0 g/t gold or samples showing visible gold are analyzed using the pulp metallic method.
