Metals Creek Resources Corp. Samples 20.2 g/t Gold and 1232.0 g/t Silver at Boot n Hammer Trenches

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2012) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:MEK) is pleased to announce assay results from surface grab samples taken from its recently completed trenching program on both the Boot n Hammer and Stocker zones on its 100% owned Jackson's Arm property in Newfoundland. The property consists of 188 staked claim units totaling 4700 hectares, located on the western side of White Bay. Previous work by MEK prospectors, in late 2011, had discovered a cluster of new gold/silver prospects in an area that had seen very little previous work. The property is proximal to excellent infrastructure including a paved road and power line.

Backhoe trenching was carried out in early January in an attempt to better understand the new gold discoveries on the property. Two of three prospects (Boot n Hammer Zone and Stocker Zone) were trenched and a number of grab samples were collected, however weather conditions did not allow for a more detailed mapping and sampling program. This work, along with additional trenching, will be completed after break-up.

A total of 14 surface grab samples were taken during the program and highlights include assays up to 20.2 g/t (grams per tonne) Gold and 1232.0 g/t Silver from the Boot n Hammer trenches. Excavation at the Stocker zone uncovered several new quartz veins and pervasive alteration over an approximately 15 m by 50 m area. Due to terrain and weather conditions only about 40% of the zone could be trenched. Assays from grab samples at the Stocker zone returned values up to 4.3 g/t gold and 14.7 g/t silver. All assay results from the grab samples collected in this trenching program are presented below:
