Manson Creek Receives Drill Permits for Meridian Gold Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2009) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to provide an update for its Meridian Gold Project. The Company has been advised that it has received all the necessary permits required for continued diamond drilling on the road accessible project, located 45 kilometers from Revelstoke, British Columbia.

The diamond drill program currently being considered would target extensions of gold mineralization at the historical Eva gold mine. The mine, due to its reliance on limited surface access, targeted only 246 meters of this prolific zone at most. No diamond drilling has ever tested below the known mine workings. For more details please visit manson.ca and click on 2009 corporate presentation.

To date, Manson Creek has outlined an extensive gold mineralized system over an area of 1,100 m by 860 m that remains open along strike and to depth. Significant gold values in drill core and outcrop, ranging from 2 g/t to 194 g/t gold, occur within this system. The proposed drilling will continue the process of delineating this large, gold bearing system.

Background
Manson Creek has consolidated five historic past producing gold – silver mines on the current, road accessible, 675 hectare claim block. The group of mines was in limited production from 1901 to 1908 producing 543,000 grams of gold. Fragmented land ownership at the time did not allow for growth and the camp faded after only a few years of production.

The Company believes that the potential for significant mineralization is high in areas near and below the historic mine workings. Gold and silver mineralization on the block is related to the regional scale Camborne Fault which crosses the Meridian Claim group and hosts many of the historic deposits.
