TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 18, 2014) - Metals Creek Resources (TSX VENTURE:MEK) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of high grade granitic boulders along the Cape Ray/Victoria Lake Fault Zone on its Staghorn Property in west central Newfoundland. The regional fault zone hosts a number of gold deposits including Marathon Gold's Valentine Lake deposit, located 32 km to the northeast of the auriferous boulders. The Staghorn Property covers a 29 km strike length of the gold trend and previous work had outlined a number of gold showings in the central and southwestern part of the property. This latest discovery is located in the northeast part of the property, in an area of little previous work and opens up a new prospective area for further exploration.
The boulders are described as angular to sub-angular, and consist of altered and foliated granite containing variable amounts of pyrite and arsenopyrite. A total of 14 samples were taken from the numerous boulders which varied in size from 0.10 to 0.75 meters. The boulder train is approximately 175 meters in length. A soil sampling program is currently being planned to help define the bedrock source for the boulders which is believed to be of a local source. A table outlining the results follows:
Note: The above samples are samples collected from boulders, are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.
