Lions Gate Receives Results of ROK Coyote Exploration Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 24, 2011) - Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LGM) ("Lions Gate" or the "Company") announces that it has received the results of the exploration program carried out on the ROK – Coyote mineral property (the "Property") during 2009 (the "Exploration Program") from Firesteel Resources Inc. ("Firesteel"). The Property is adjacent to and immediately northwest of the Imperial Metals Corporation's Red Chris copper-gold deposit (with measured and indicated resources of 489.1 million tonnes at 0.43% Cu and 0.42 g/t Au, at 0.20% Cu% Cutoff (as reported on page 89 of Imperial Metals' Technical Report: 2010 Exploration, Drilling and Mineral Resource Update dated May 19, 2010)). Individual sample results range up to 1.585 grams per tonne gold, 0.2024% copper and 0.08126% molybdenum.

Firesteel has only recently received the technical assessment report for this Exploration Program as the release of the report was part of the settlement of a law suit, now dismissed by mutual consent of both parties, between Firesteel and Brett Resources Inc. Lions Gate recently finalized its right to acquire an option to purchase up to a 75% interest in the Property in January, 2011 and intends to form a joint venture to further explore it. Firesteel announced these results in a news release dated January 19, 2011. The full Firesteel press release can be found here http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/January2011/20/c4085.html.

Arni Johannson, CEO of Lions Gate stated, "We are pleased that the data from the 2009 exploration on the ROK-Coyote property has been released and we can use this data to move forward. We now have drill targets on two separate areas of the property separated by 6,000 meters."

The 6,891 hectare Property is located approximately 195 kilometres north of Stewart and 75 kilometres south of Dease Lake, immediately east of Hwy. 37 and northwest of Imperial Metals Corp., Red Chris copper-gold porphyry deposit. The Property hosts copper-gold ± molybdenum porphyry style mineralization within a hydrothermal sulphide system measuring at least 18 square kilometers, covering the top, south and eastern slopes of Ehahcezetle Mountain in the Stikine Arch region of north-western British Columbia. Previous exploration work has been concentrated in the northern part of the Property (the "Main Zone") which has returned 36 meters grading 0.53% copper ("Cu") and 0.62 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au") in Trench 2a and 38.4 meters grading 1.32% Cu and 1.54 g/t Au in diamond drill hole 90-3.

The Exploration Program was designed to carry out initial ground testing including induced polarization ("lP") and ground magnetic geophysical surveying along with soil and rock sampling over previously cut grid lines covering a relatively unexplored, airborne magnetic high – Th/k low anomaly located in the south eastern quadrant of the Property.
