Toronto, 16 January 2014. Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Corporation”, TSXV: MEK) announces additional wide gold intersections from the Thomas Ogden Gold Zone in Timmins, Ontario. Highlights include drill hole TOG-13-38 which returned 54.65 meters (m) of 1.89 grammes per tonne (g/t) Gold (Au), including 25.70 m of 2.79 g/t Au and hole TOG-13-38 which returned 17.05m of 1.90 g/t Au, including 6.05m of 4.21 g/t Au. These two in-fill holes confirm the continuous nature of the gold mineralization within the Thomas Ogden Zone and continue to expand on the resource potential. Two other holes completed in this latest drill program, TOG-13-35 and TOG-13-37 were drilled below the eastern plunge of the gold zone, confirming the location of the lower contact.
The Ogden Property consists of a package of patented mining claims, covering eight kilometers of strike length along the Porcupine-Destor Break between Goldcorp’s Dome Mine and Lake Shore Gold’s West Timmins Mine. The Ogden Property is held under a joint venture in which Metals Creek owns 50%, and Goldcorp Canada Ltd. (“Goldcorp”) owns 50% (as manager and on behalf of the Porcupine Joint Venture, a joint venture between Goldcorp Inc. and Goldcorp Canada Ltd.) with MEK being the operator of the project. Three separate gold zones have been identified on the property, Nabob North, Naybob South and Thomas Ogden. All have seen limited drilling since the initiation of the option/joint venture with Goldcorp, however the most recent focus has been on the newly discovered Thomas Ogden Zone. A total of 46 holes have now been completed at Thomas Ogden over the past three years and the zone has been partially defined as an easterly plunging alteration zone with mineralogy and geometry typical of other deposits along strike. High grade gold mineralization appears to correlate with flexures within the TOG stratigraphy. The zone remains open and will continue to be the focus of future drilling.
Results from holes TOG-13-35 to 38 are outlined in the table below:
*Reported drill intercepts are not true widths. Due to the complex nature
of the folded stratigraphy, insufficient data is available to calculate true orientations.

All split core samples were sent to Accurassay, an accredited laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. As part of the Corporations QAQC protocol, approximately 10% of the samples submitted for assay were also sent for check assays. Standards and blanks were inserted randomly into the sample shipments as part of the sampling protocol. Samples with fire assay results above 1.0 g/t gold are re-analyzed using a gravimetric finish and samples with fire assay results above 5.0 g/t gold or samples showing visible gold are analyzed using the pulp metallic method.
