Kiska Enters Option Agreement to Acquire a 100% Interest in Prospective Copper-Gold Project in BC

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 16, 2015) - Kiska Metals Corporation (TSX VENTURE: KSK) ("Kiska" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Chlormet Technologies, Inc. ("Chlormet") pursuant to which Kiska has been granted the exclusive right to earn 100% of the interest of Chlormet in the Chuchi Property (the "Project") located in British Columbia. The terms of the option agreement were announced by Kiska in a press release dated September 8th, 2014.

"We are pleased to complete this transaction with Chlormet on the Chuchi Property. With a proven porphyry system near an operating mine and existing infrastructure, Chuchi has the potential to add significant value to our project portfolio." stated Kiska's President Grant Ewing. "Kiska's goal moving forward will be to secure a partner on this exciting project."

Chuchi Property:

The road-accessible Chuchi Property hosts a copper-gold porphyry system in a prospective region of the Quesnel porphyry belt in north-central British Columbia, and is located 32 km to the northwest of the newly-opened Mt. Milligan copper-gold mine. The core of the property overlies a 12 km2 alteration zone centered on a cluster of porphyritic monzonite stocks hosted by volcanic and sedimentary rocks. Drilling campaigns from 1989 to 1991 targeted coincident Cu-Au soil geochemical anomalies and Induced Polarization chargeability high anomalies within this alteration zone, for a total of 13,030 metres from 79 drillholes, yet preliminary work by Kiska indicates that there remains considerable room for expansion of known zones of mineralization. To view Chuchi maps click here.
