Metals Creek Options Careless Cove/Yellow Fox, Central Newfoundland to Quadro Resources
Toronto Ontario, October 8, 2020 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Company” or Metals Creek, TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce that the company has signed a Letter Of Intent (LOI) with Quadro Resources Ltd. (Quadro, TSXV: QRO) whereas Quadro has the right to earn a 100% interest in the company’s Careless Cove/Yellow Fox claims in central Newfoundland. The claims are located approximately 12 kilometers southwest of New Found Gold Corp. as illustrated on the attached map. (“New Found Gold”) announced excellent results from recent drilling on their Queensway Gold Project. Drill Hole NFGC-19-01 results included an intersection of 92.86 g/t Au over 19.0 meters (see Mexican Gold Corp., Press Release dated January 26, 2020). Gold values on adjacent properties in similar rocks are not representative of the mineralization on the property, have not been verified, and should not be relied upon.
The terms of the acquisition are outlined as follows:
- The Property consists of five licenses (40 units) in two separate groupings referred to as the Careless Cove group and the Yellow Fox group.
- To acquire MEK’s interest, QRO will issue to MEK a total $100,000 and 1,500,000 shares according to the following schedule:
- a) $15,000 and 300,000 on signing;
- b) $20,000 and 300,000 shares on the first anniversary;
- c) $20,000 and 400,000 shares on the second anniversary; and
- d) $45,000 and 500,000 shares on the third anniversary
- Once QRO is vested at 100% by meeting all the payments above, MEK will retain a 2.0% Net Smelter Return (NSR) royalty on any future mineral production. QRO will have the right to purchase 50% of the NSR from MEK for $1,000,000.
- The foregoing proposal is subject to QRO and MEK board approval and may be subject to Exchange approval, in which regard the parties will provide such assistance and cooperation as may reasonably be required.
Recent prospecting activities on the Careless Cove property in by Metals Creek returned 11.8 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) in grab samples. The Careless Cove claim block is one of two 100% owned Claim blocks comprising the Careless Cove/Yellow Fox Property. (see MEK news release dated 30 July 2020).
Careless Cove Claims
The recent prospecting carried out at Careless Cove uncovered mineralization comprised of quartz breccia with disseminated and vein hosted pyrite/arsenopyrite with minor stibinite.
Three samples taken from outcrop, assays are as follows:
Sample Number g/t Au
In addition, follow up prospecting has located rubble approximately 50 meters away from the above mentioned outcrop samples with assays of :
Sample Number g/t Au
Yellow Fox Claims
No new sampling was carried out at Yellow Fox however a description of previous MEK sampling carried out in 2011 follows: (see Newfoundland Geoscience Resource Atlas Geofile Number: 002D/0779).
Initial prospecting carried by Metals Creek in 2011, resulted in a concentration of highly anomalous gold values with one sample returning an assay of 59.413 g/t Au (main Yellow Fox showing) (see MEK press release dated June 22, 2011). This led to an enhanced work program which included soil sampling and trenching. B-horizon soils were collected 25 meters apart over two, 100m spaced, east-west trending recce lines over the higher-grade gold sample in an attempt to trace the direction of mineralization. Follow-up trenching was completed across the mineralization. Initial sampling consisted of 13 selective grab samples taken throughout the trenches with assay values ranging from 214 ppb to 1877 ppb Gold and up to 11.1 % Sb, 5.5% Pb, 7 % Zn, and 72.9 g/t Ag. The trenches were then channel sampled along their length using a diamond bladed rock saw. The best result from the channels were from Trench #1 which assayed 0.306 g/t Au over 26.82m within 29 continuous samples and 4.57% Sb over 1 meter. These results were very encouraging and indicated the potential for a more widespread gold system on the Yellow Fox claim group.
Alexander (Sandy) Stares, President and CEO of Metals Creek states, “With central Newfoundland receiving a lot of attention due to current exploration activity, Optioning the Careless Cove/Yellow Fox claims to Quadro allows for the properties to receive the exploration it deserves while Metals Creek remains focused on the Dona Lake Gold Project in northwestern Ontario and the Ogden Project in Timmins“.

Analyses in this release were performed by Eastern Analytical of Springdale, NL with ISO 17025 accreditation. Samples were transported in sealed bags to Eastern and all samples were assayed using industry-standard assay techniques for gold. Gold was analyzed by a standard 30 gram fire assay with an AA finish.
Note: The surface grab samples described in this news release are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades of the property.
