About the Ogden Gold Project

Metals Creek is currently exploring its flagship Ogden Property, which has over 8km of strike length along the prolific Porcupine-Destor Break, the key conduit for gold mineralization in the Timmins Camp. The Ogden property was acquired in November, 2008. Since then, Metals Creek and Goldcorp (PJV) have formed a 50/50 joint venture.

Metals Creek is strategically located within this prolific mining camp between Lakeshore Gold's West Timmins mine and Goldcorp's Dome Mine and Mill complex.

The former Naybob Mine located on the property, had gold production of 50,731 ounces(oz) (Source: Government of Ontario, MNDM, Resident Geologists Program 2013, OPR 6294) and has a historic non 43-101 compliant resource of one million tonnes grading 4.12g/t Au.(Source:Government of Onario, MNDM, Report of Activities 1998, Resident Geologist Program, OFR 5990). The Corporation cautions that all data included in this press release is historical in nature, has not been independently verified or validated by the Corporation and should not be relied upon.

Gold production to the east of the company's Ogden Project has exceeded 22 million ounces from a number of mines including Goldcorp's Dome Mine, which has produced in excess of 16 nearly 17 million oz (Source: Government of Ontario, MNDM, Resident Geologists Program 2013, OPR 6294) and is situated 8km east along the break. Five additional past producers occur along the Porcupine-Destor between the Dome Mine and the Ogden Property, These include the Delnite (920,000 oz), Aunor (2,502,000 oz), Buffalo-Ankerite (957,000 oz),Paymaster (1,192,000 oz), Preston (1,539,000 oz) and Goldcorp's producing Dome Mine (plus 15,800,000 oz) (Source: Government of Ontario, MNDM, Gold Production in the Timmins Resident Geologist's District to the end of 2006).which have seen past production ranging between 920,000 ounces to 2,502,000 ounces from each separate mine.

Since acquisition, the company has carried out extensive ground and down hole geophysical surveys as well as over 20,000 meters of diamond drilling on four main mineralized zones. Recent highlights from drilling at the Thomas Ogden Zone include intercepts of 210.19 g/t Au over 12.53m incl. 2732 g/t Au over 0.93m with significant visible gold and 9.46 g/t Au over 18.55m from near surface, porphyry style mineralization. Near surface drill intercepts from the Naybob South Zone include 9.24g/t Au over 6.61m.

The Company's most recent plans for the Ogden Property include updating the geological model for the Thomas Ogden Zone based on recently drilled holes. The company plans on drilling additional holes on the Thomas Ogden Zone to further evaluate the shallow plunging gold structure.
