Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – April 13, 2018) – Metals Creek Resources (TSXV: MEK) (“Metals Creek” or “the company”) has completed an airborne EM/Mag survey comprising of 156.2 line kilometres, over the Great Brehat project on Newfoundland and Labrador’s Great Northern Peninsula.
The Great Brehat property is located on the Great Northern Peninsula near St. Anthony, Newfoundland. The MEK claims are contiguous to and located to the south and west of White Metal Resources Corp’s Gunners Cove property which hosts a number of recent gold discoveries. This newly discovered mineralization is described as highly anomalous gold values over an approximately 15 sq km area, hosted in black graphitic shale units (See WHM-TSX.V PR dated November 20, 2017). The Metals Creek claims were staked to cover favorable geology similar to that of White Metal Resources Corp.
Preliminary results from the recently completed airborne survey define a number of conductive zones, including a north-northwest striking large conductive anomaly that measures approximately 3 kilometers long and ranges from approximately 0.5 km to 1.5 km wide. The anomaly is interpreted as a strong bedrock conductor response and is possibly sourced by a graphitic and/or pyritic source similar to the host rocks at the Gunners Cove showings. The geophysical targets will be ground proofed as soon as possible (See Image 1).
Alexander Stares, President and CEO of Metals Creek comments, “The results of this survey clearly define a very large conductive response as well as other conductive responses which will be the focus of follow-up prospecting and mapping.”
The company believes the Gunners Cove style of gold mineralization could potentially represent an important new discovery in a unique geological environment similar to other large gold deposits hosted in black shale environments around the world.
