Gold Mineralization on the Shabaqua Corners Gold Property

Metals Creek Discovers Second Zone of Gold Mineralization on the Shabaqua Corners Gold Property


Thunder Bay Ontario, 20 June, 2023 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Company” or Metals Creek, TSXV: MEK, FRA:M1C1) is pleased to announce the discovery of a second zone of gold mineralization through prospecting on its recently acquired Shabaqua Corners property.

The property is located within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, approximately 54 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario near Shabaqua Corners and on trend to Delta Resources Delta 1 project. The property has seen very little exploration work.

This round of field activities on the Shabaqua Corners Gold Property concentrated on areas outside of the main zone mineralization, which is hosted within an east-west trending zone of silicification, pyritization and pervasive carbonate alteration. Nine samples were collected 235m northwest of the main mineralized zone (See news release: May 25, 2023) (See table 1 below, assay results), with assays ranging from 0.084 to 3.45 grams per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au). Gold mineralization is hosted within an altered conglomerate with associated quartz-carbonate veining and local stockwork striking roughly the same orientation to that of the main zone.(see figure 1 below, echo zone location). Alteration consists of pervasive iron carbonate with strong silicification and mineralization entails trace to 5% disseminated to stringer pyrite with trace arsenopyrite and galena also present.(see figure 2 below, sample GCS-23-017). An exploration permit has been applied for so trenching in this and other areas on the property can take place when the permit is received. (Note: The surface grab samples described in this news release are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades of the property.)

Prospecting and geological mapping is ongoing with the aim of further delineating known gold mineralization along strike as well as continuing to evaluate other portions of the property.  MEK is targeting potential parallel gold bearing structures as demonstrated within other projects within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt.

Alexander (Sandy) Stares states “these assay results confirm the presence of gold mineralization outside of the known historical gold mineralization. Permits have been applied for and we are excited to begin trenching prospective targets once permits have been received.”

The eastern boundary of the property is located 1.57 kilometers(km) west of Delta Resources (DLTA) drill hole DL-22-18 which returned an intercept of 5.92 g/t Au over 31m (Source: Delta New Release October 31, 2022). Trenching conducted on Delta’s ground 390m east of the property boundary, returned an interval of 2.22 g/t Au over 8m (Source: Delta Resources Website).

All samples were sent to Activation Laboratories.  The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish.
