Metals Creek and Golden Dory Announce High Grade Iron Results From Recent Sampling at the Gabbro Lake Project in Western Labrador

Iron Values Up to 75.38% Fe2O3 From Labrador Trough Iron Formation

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 21, 2011) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MEK) and Golden Dory Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GDR) are pleased to announce assay results from its recently completed sampling program on the Gabbro Lake project located 160 km northeast of Labrador City. The project consists of 295 claim units (21 square kilometers) and was initially acquired to cover the most eastern extent of the prolific Labrador Trough iron formation which hosts all of Canada's present iron ore production in western Labrador and northeastern Quebec. The Gabbro claims are 35 km north of the Trans Labrador Highway and 50 km east of the Labrador-Quebec railway.

The project is a 50/50 joint venture between Metals Creek and Golden Dory with Metals Creek as the operator. The claims were acquired by both companies in 2007 and airborne geophysics (magnetic, EM and radiometrics) was completed in 2008. Within the Gabbro property, the magnetic data defines the Knob Lake iron formation as a structurally folded and faulted iron formation and shows a number of areas that may be thickened by the structural complexity. The prospecting/sampling program was carried out in June and targeted the magnetic iron formations. Highlights from this sampling include:

  • A total of 34 grab samples were taken from various iron formation targets which were outlined as discrete magnetic highs on the airborne geophysics survey. Results from grab samples of both outcrop and angular float ranged from 11.42% Fe2O3 to 75.38% Fe2O3 with 79% of the samples assaying greater than 25% Fe2O3 and 62% of the samples over 40% Fe2O3. The samples represented massive to semi-massive medium grained magnetite and banded cherty magnetite iron formation. There has been no known previous work carried out on these iron formation prospects.

Future work will include petrographic work on the higher grade iron samples and generation of a 3-D model using the airborne magnetic data to get a better understanding of the iron formation dimensions. Follow-up field work is recommended and would include additional prospecting/sampling, ground geophysics and diamond drilling.

The surface grab samples described in this news release are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property. The samples were delivered to Actlabs sample prep facility in Goose Bay, NL where representative pulps were prepared and sent to Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. The iron formation samples were analyzed for Fe2O3 and the other major oxides by XRF Fusion.
