TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Dec. 8, 2015) – Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:MEK) announces the commencement of a 3500 meter diamond drill program on the Ogden Property in the Timmins Gold Camp, Ontario. This program will be comprised of three phases that will be targeting gold mineralization within the Thomas Ogden Zone as well as other near surface targets on the Ogden Property. The Ogden claims cover eight kilometers of strike length of the Porcupine-Destor Break between Goldcorp’s Dome Mine and Lake Shore Gold’s West Timmins development project. The Ogden Property is held under a joint venture in which Metals Creek owns 50%, and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. (“Goldcorp”) owns 50% (as manager and on behalf of the Porcupine Joint Venture, a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada Ltd.) with MEK being the operator of the project.
This initial phase will continue to further define and provide a better understanding of the complex structural nature of the Thomas Ogden Zone with what appears to be a strong spatial relationship of higher gold grades in close proximity to fold structures identified from recent drill campaigns. Drilling over the past four years has confirmed that the zone is an easterly plunging alteration zone within the Porcupine-Destor Break and has strong similarities to other deposits along strike. This zone remains open along strike and down plunge.
Highlights from 2013 drilling at the Thomas Ogden Zone included holes TOG 13-25 which returned 12.53 meters (m) of 210.19 grammes per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au) including 0.93 m of 2732.64 g/t Au, and TOG-13-27 which returned 9 m of 49.96 g/t Au including 1.0 m of 434.77 g/t Au. (see press releases dated 22 May 2013 and 10 April 2013 respectively).
Results from this drill program will be released as they are received and the data is compiled.
