Sep. 14, 2009 (TheNewswire.ca) --
Toronto, 14 September 2009. Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV:MEK) (the "Corporation", TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce that the Corporation has received high grade assay results from its Dogpaw Lake Property, located within the Kenora Mining District, approximately 55 kilometers southeast of the city of Kenora, in Northwestern Ontario. The property consists of 29 unpatented claims and is part of the Corporation's Dogpaw-Stephens Lake Project. A portion of the property is operated through an option agreement with Endurance Gold (OOTC:ENDGF) (TSXV:EDG) (EDG), in which the Corporation has earned a 75% interest in the property by incurring $450,000 in expenditures and issuing 450,000 shares over 2 years.
The property lies within the central portion of the east-west trending Wabigoon greenstone belt and is host to several historic gold occurrences which have seen little exploration. This portion of the Wabigoon greenstone belt is an emerging gold camp with exciting drill intercepts coming from both Houston Lake Mining (TSXV:HLM) (PR: HLM - TSX-V, May 12, 2009) and Rainy River Resources (TSXV:RR) (PR: RR-TSX-V, Jan. 27,2009). Nuinsco's Cameron Lake deposit also lies 12 kilometers southeast of the property along the Cameron lake fault.
The Corporation initiated a prospecting / mapping program in the vicinity of the historic Flint Lake Occurrence to follow up on historic gold assays and determine the lateral extent and orientation of the gold bearing structure. A total of 26 surface grab samples were submitted with assays ranging from 0.034 to 133.2 g/t Gold. The main Flint Lake Occurrence has been traced for over 100 meters of strike length and is open in both directions. Mineralization is hosted within a strongly carbonatized east west trending structure with associated quartz veining and local pyrite mineralization. Visible Gold has been noted within the carbonatized quartz veins. Future work will include additional mapping, trenching, line cutting and ground geophysics (IP) to bring this project to the drill stage.
The Corporation is highly encouraged by this latest round of assays. The Dogpaw Property has only seen limited exploration over the last 20 years with abundant high grade showings requiring further work to advance this project to the drill stage.
All assays were sent to Accurassay Laboratories, an accredited laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The gold was analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay and an atomic absorption finish.
