Manson Creek Stakes Additional Claims Adjacent to ATAC's Rau Property, Yukon

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2010) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to announce the completion of claim staking in the Mayo mining district of the Yukon. The recent staking has expanded Manson Creek's Tell property to approximately 1,950 hectares. The claims are contiguous with the ATAC Rau property, located approximately 140 kilometers east of Mayo, Yukon.

These claims extend from the Tell Showing, a 300 meter gossan zone that contains high metal and gold pathfinder mineralization, north to the Rau Claim group. The additional claims were staked to encompass favourable geology hosting arsenic and mercury anomalies outlined by Manson Creek geologists during prospecting work from 2000-2005. As a result of the prospecting and subsequent exploration programs, the Company has compiled an extensive proprietary geochemical, geological and geophysical database of the region.

Many of the recent gold discoveries in the region have been made in areas of prominent gossan zones that contain pathfinder minerals. The Tell property contains a large gossan as well as numerous arsenic and mercury anomalies that are considered pathfinders for gold. The Tell property contains many of the characteristics found in the Carlin style gold deposit model, including the presence of carbonate and calcareous sedimentary rocks, stratabound mineralization, folded stratigraphy, abundant barite, and presence of pathfinder minerals such as arsenic and mercury. A similar model has been proposed for the adjacent ATAC discoveries.

With the recent $1,058,000 financing, Manson Creek is well positioned to undertake its planned 2011 Tell exploration program. The program will include detailed soil and stream sampling, prospecting, geological mapping and trenching to further define the mineralization present on the property.
