VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2012) - Strategic Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SMD) ("Strategic") announces that it has been issued 2,500,000 common shares of Central Resources Corp. ("Central") as consideration related to the exercise of a mineral property option. By agreement dated June 8, 2010 and amended March 30, 2011 and February 13, 2012, Strategic granted Central an option to acquire a 100% interest in a number of mineral properties located in the Whitehorse Mining District, Yukon Territory. With the issuance of the 2,500,000 shares, Central has fully exercised the option. Strategic has retained a 3% net smelter royalty interest in the properties, of which one-third (a 1% net smelter royalty interest) may be purchased by Central for $1 million at any time.

Prior to the issuance of the 2,500,000 shares, Strategic held 1,500,000 Central shares. The 4,000,000 Central shares now held by Strategic represent 12.07% of Central's current issued capital. All 4,000,000 Central shares are held directly by Strategic and are being held for investment purposes. Strategic may in the future take such actions in respect of its Central shares as it deems appropriate in light of the market circumstances then existing, including the potential purchase of additional shares of Central through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, or the sale of all or portion of such holdings in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions to one or more purchasers.
