Metals Creek Resources Corp. intercepts 81.13m of 1.834 percent copper from drilling on the Tillex copper property
Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the "Corporation", TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce additional high grade copper assays, including 1.834% Cu over 81.13m, from the recently completed diamond drill program on its Tillex property which is located 65 km east of Timmins, ON and 45 km from Xstrata's Kidd Mill and Metallurgical Site.
- TX08-003 22.87m down hole intercept (50.63m to 73.50m) of 1.05% Cu including 8.3m (54.00m to 62.30m) of 2.36% Cu.
- TX08-004 81.13m down hole intercept (42.00m to 123.13m) of 1.83% Cu including 27.00m (53.00 to 80.00m) of 2.73% Cu.
- TX08-015 14m down hole intercept (100.00m to 114.00m) of 1.11% Cu.
This drill program, initially reported November 12, 2008, was designed to further delineate known copper mineralization within the Tillex Copper Deposit as well as following up on holes TX08-001 and 002 previously reported October 14, 2008. Assays for 6 holes have been received to date, the first three noted above as well as 3 holes testing new ground geophysical anomalies. Two of the holes which tested new targets, returned anomalous base metal values with hole TX08-018 returning 0.44% Copper over 4 meters and hole TX08-019 returning 0.44% Lead and 0.42% Zn over 5 meters. Hole TX-08-017 returned no significant results. Management believes with the discovery of new base metal mineralization outside of the area of historic drilling, the potential for the discovery of additional mineralization is promising. Mineralization is described as chalcopyrite with local sphalerite and galena within a mixed sequence of andesite, graphitic argillite, dacitic tuff and feldspar porphyry.
Additional assays are yet to be returned and will be reported once they have been received and compiled.
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 while the base metals were analyzed utilizing acid digestion 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 to Actlabs located in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Standards and blanks were inserted randomly into the sample shipments as part of the sampling protocol.
