Metals Creek Advised That Sokoman Iron Corp Completes Phase 1 Drilling on Clarks Brook Gold Property, Central Newfoundland
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 27, 2017) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK) (Metals Creek) is pleased to announce that they have been advised by their option partner, Sokoman Iron Corp (TSXV: SIC) (Sokoman) that it has completed Phase 1 drilling on the Clarks Brook Gold Property, located in central Newfoundland. The road accessible Clarks Brook prospect was staked by vendor Metals Creek (MEK) after a review of past work completed on the property and initial due diligence performed on the showing. The gold mineralization outlined on the Clarks Brook Property consists of mineralized angular boulders up to 3m in size initially discovered by Altius Minerals Corporation in 2004, and from which assays ranging from 2.98 g/t to 24.5 g/t gold were reported. Subsequent work, including Induced Polarization (IP) and Magnetics ground geophysical surveys outlined several targets, but no drilling took place. Note: The historical assay results mentioned in this news release were grab samples which are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent average grades of the property.
Sokoman completed approximately 515m of NQ sized core drilling in four holes which tested approximately 100m of strike length of the known mineralization at Clarks Brook. A total of 146 saw cut core samples ranging from 0.25 to 1.5m in length (average of 0.50m) were sent to Eastern Analytical Labs in Springdale, NL, for gold analysis, and results are expected in four to five weeks. All samples were cut by Sokoman Iron personnel with ½ of the interval kept for future reference. The sampling focused on zones exhibiting extensive brecciation, silicification, quartz veining and sulphide mineralization similar in style to that observed in gold bearing surface samples reported by previous workers. It is estimated that the mineralized corridor intersected in the drilling ranges up to 40m in apparent thickness within which multiple, more intensely altered and mineralized intervals occur.

Sokoman will be the operator during the earn-in period. Once a 75% interest is earned by Sokoman, either a 75/25 joint venture will be formed, or Sokoman may elect to earn an additional 25% interest to bring its total property interest to 100%. The terms to increase its interest from 75% to 100% include payments of $100,000 and the issuance of an additional 2,000,000 Sokoman shares within 60 days of the 3rd anniversary date.
