Metals Creek Initiates Prospecting and Geological Mapping Program on The Shabaqua Corner Gold Property
Thunder Bay Ontario, 03 May, 2023 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Company” or Metals Creek, TSXV: MEK, FRA:M1C1) is pleased to announce that the Company has initiated a prospecting, geological mapping and soil sampling program on its recently acquired Shabaqua Corner property.
The property is located within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, approximately 54 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario near Shabaqua Corner and on trend to Delta Resources Delta 1 project. The property has seen very little exploration work.
Initial field activities will consist of prospecting to further evaluate known gold showings as well as further expanding known carbonatization with associated quartz carbonate veining commonly associated with gold mineralization on the Shabaqua Corner Gold Property. Historic surface grab samples range from nil to 54.51 grammes per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au) with Visible Gold (VG) present. The project is underlain by mafic volcanics with interbedded sediments. Gold mineralization is hosted within an east-west trending zone of pervasive carbonate alteration with associated quartz carbonate veins and pyrite. ( See Image 1, quartz/carbonate vein at Shabaqua Corner Gold Property). (Note: The surface grab samples described in this news release are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades of the property. Assay results from the Property in this news release are historical in nature and have not been verified by the Company.)
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).
