TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2011) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MEK) is pleased to announce that in order to satisfy additional demand it has increased the size of its private placement, previously announced on January 13, 2011, to up to 3,787,500 flow through shares ("FT Shares") and up to 20,969,000 units ("Units") for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $7,083,320 (the "Offering"). As previously announced, each FT share will be issued at a subscription price of $0.32 per FT Share and will qualify as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada), while each Unit will be issued at a subscription price of $0.28 per Unit and will be comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant, a "Warrant"), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company at a price of $0.45 for a period of 24 months following the closing of the Offering.

Fraser Mackenzie Limited and Euro Pacific Canada Inc. (the "Agents") have agreed to act as co-lead agents on a best efforts agency basis with respect to the Offering. Due to the increased demand, the Agents will no longer have their previously announced option to sell up to an additional $750,000 in the form of either FT Shares and/or Units.

The proceeds from the sale of the FT Shares will be used for exploration for the Company's properties and the proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for general working capital purposes.

The Offering is scheduled to close on or about February 4, 2011 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the securities regulatory authorities.

Any securities to be issued will be subject to a hold period of four months from the closing date in accordance with the rules and policies of the TSX Venture Exchange and applicable Canadian securities laws and such other further restrictions as may apply under foreign securities laws.
