TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Sept. 10, 2015) – Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MEK) has been provided an update by its partner Benton Resources Inc, (TSX VENTURE:BEX) (“Benton” or “the Company”) on the Staghorn gold property. The Staghorn Property is under option from Metals Creek Resources Corp. (see Benton press release dated Nov. 18, 2014).
Further Prospecting to follow up on soil sampling has resulted in the discovery of additional high grade boulders on the Ryans Hammer trend with selective grab samples from numerous large angular mineralized boulders, interpreted to be subcrop, continuing to return encouraging results. The most recent results from four new well mineralized samples assayed 0.62gpt, 1.5gpt, 7.7gpt and 27.8gpt gold and may potentially extend the gold mineralized horizon to approximately 2.2km in length.
The Company believes the zone is situated within an east west oriented splay or dilation zone off of the main Cape Ray fault and trenching to expose the zone is scheduled to start immediately after the permit is received which is expected by the end of the week or early next week. The Company’s soil sampling program and geochemical analysis has resulted in some extensive gold-in-soil anomalies clustering in a linear fashion. The soil program has now been expanded to cover the new visible gold showing area, the Rich House showing, situated in the north eastern portion of the project where recently announced grab samples graded from trace to 189.2gpt gold.
The Cape Ray/Victoria Lake regional fault zone hosts a number of gold deposits, including Marathon Gold’s Valentine Lake deposit located 30km to the northeast of the Staghorn and Benton’s Cape Ray gold deposits approximately 100km to the southwest.
All assays were completed by Eastern Analytical of Springdale, NL using fire assay.
Clinton Barr (P.Geo.), V.P. Exploration for Benton Resources Inc., is the qualified person responsible for this release.
The surface grab samples mentioned in this news release are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.
