Manson Creek Completes $106,000 Non-Brokered Financing

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ('Manson Creek') (TSX VENTURE:MCK) announces that it has completed a non-brokered private placement for 1,400,000 Common Units at a price of $0.05 per Common Unit and 600,000 Flow Through Units at a price of $0.06 per Flow Through Unit for gross proceeds of $106,000.

The funds raised will finance fieldwork on the Company's two exploration projects, the Tell project in the Yukon and the Up Town Gold project in the Northwest Territories, moving them forward in a methodical and measured manner, as well as for working capital.

Work is set to commence on the Up Town Gold project located in the Northwest Territories with Phase one exploration work focusing on numerous historical gold bearing zones and the relatively undocumented alteration halos that surround them. The project was last examined in the 1960's with no focused geological work being conducted in the last five decades. Manson Creek geological personnel will map and prospect in and around the historical mineralized zones. Following the mapping, extensive channel sampling will be conducted over the mapped mineralized zones as the first step in defining the mineralization present.

In early June, an Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey is planned to cover the southern portion of the Tell claim block located adjacent to the Rackla Gold belt in the Yukon. The IP Survey will cover the area that in 2011 saw the discovery of six new natural spring gossans along strike and near to the original Tell showing. The geophysical survey will assist in the targeting of drill targets on the property. The drill program for the Tell property has been deferred until later in the summer or early fall, subject to the Company's ability to raise additional funds.
