Williams Creek is reporting net earnings of $476,755 (2009 net loss - $24,085) for the three month period ended October 31, 2010. The increase in the Company's earnings is attributable to interest income of $26,566, realized gain on sale of its investments of $513,317, and unrealized holding gains on its investment portfolio of $234,850.

Exploration costs amounted to $46,730 during the current quarter, all attributable to Williams Creek's exploration of its holdings in the Barkerville area.

"For the past 9 months, we at Williams Creek have said that we would do three things: explore, engage in equity and joint venture agreements, and engage in financing and royalty agreements," said Michael Sonnenreich, Chairman and CEO of Williams Creek. "This quarter's encouraging results are showing that there is strong merit to our strategy, and we intend to continue progressing with all three aspects of our plan."
