Metals Creek Resources Announces Closing of Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MEK) ("Metals Creek" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the second and final tranche of the private placement previously announced by on April 5, 2016 (the "Private Placement"), for aggregate gross proceeds of $397,710. Together with the proceeds from closing of the first tranche announced April 22, 2016, the Company raised an aggregate of $813,710. The second tranche of the Private Placement consisted of the issuance of 2,670,000 flow-through units (the "Flow-Through Units") at a price of $0.125 per Flow-Through Unit and 383,000 non flow-through units (the "Hard Units") at a price of $0.12 per Hard Unit.

Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one-half of one warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Hard Unit consists of one non flow-through common share and one Warrant. Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one additional non flow-through common share of the Company at an exercise price of $0.18 per share during the 24 months following the closing date. An aggregate of 3,053,000 Warrants were issued under the second tranche of the Private Placement.

The proceeds raised from the Flow-Through Units will be used to further exploration work on the Ogden Gold Project in Timmins Ontario and other Canadian Exploration Expenses (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada)), with the Company using its best efforts to ensure that such Canadian Exploration Expenses qualify as a "flow-through mining expenditure" for purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), related to the exploration of the Company's exploration projects.

All securities issued in the Placement are subject to a four month hold period. The Private Placement is subject to the final acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
