Melkior Starts 4000 Metres Drilling in Carscallen West Timmins

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2009) - Melkior Resources Inc. ("Melkior") (TSX VENTURE:MKR) is pleased to announce that the 2009-2010 fall-winter drill program has begun on its 100% owned Carscallen gold property in the active West Timmins exploration area at Timmins, Ontario. The property adjoins Lake Shore Gold Corp and is located 5 kilometres due west of the developing West Timmins gold mine and the new Thunder Creek gold discoveries.

The current program represents continued drilling on the 1010, ZamZam and Shenkman gold zones already traced for over 1000 metres and systematically drilled to a depth of approximately 100 metres. The new programs are planned to drill these zones to depths of at least 300 metres. The data acquired will be entered into a 3 dimensional compilation currently underway. This will enable Melkior to interpret new data and advance the program as deeper drilling progresses.

An Induced Polarization survey of the southern portion of the Carscallen property is underway. The objective of this work is to map possible southward extensions of the 1010 and ZamZam-Shenkman structures. Some shallow drilling could be allocated to evaluate any newly identified extensions. An orientation geochemical survey was completed in October 2009 and results are pending.

The results from the work will be announced progressively.

This Press Release was prepared by Jens E. Hansen, P.Eng, President of Melkior, Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
