Metals Creek Resources Corp. Reports 92% Gold Recovery from Bottle Roll Tests Completed on Samples from Squid East Project, White Gold District, Yukon

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Metals Creek") (TSX VENTURE:MEK) is pleased to report results from bottle roll cyanide extraction test work, reporting an average of 92% gold recovery from drill core and trench samples at the Squid East project.

The primary objective for this metallurgical testing program was to evaluate the leaching characteristics of the weathered gold bearing material intersected in both the drilling and trenching programs completed last summer. This work had partially defined a new gold/silver system associated with a strong gold plus pathfinder soil anomaly. Results included 22.0 meters of 1.96 g/t gold and 160.6 g/t Ag from trenching and 1.55 g/t gold and 114.1 g/t Ag over 21.0 m from the subsequent drilling (see MEK press releases dated August 6, 2013 and October 8, 2013). The mineralized zone consists of a weathered section of sericite schist with associated porphyritic sections and remains completely open. The new discovery is within the unglaciated portion of the west central Yukon terrain, proximal to an existing placer mine and is trail accessible.

Six samples were collected from the main trench and two drill holes, and these were submitted for both fire assay and bottle roll cyanide analyses. The bottle roll cyanidation process confirmed that the leachable gold recovery in the selected material averaged 92% and that the weathered material could potentially react well to heap leach extraction methods.

Gold recoveries for the six samples ranged from 83.8 to 95.7% and averaged 92% overall. Gold grades for these six samples ranged from 0.71 grammes per tonne (g/t) Au to 9.99 g/t Au. The following table details the results.

Commenting on the Squid East Project, Metals Creeks President & CEO, Alexander (Sandy) Stares stated, "We are pleased with the initial results from our work at Squid East. Positive results from the first ever drill program combined with the preliminary bottle roll test work indicates that the weathered material appears amenable to heap leach extraction."

Michael MacIsaac, P.Geo and VP Exploration for the Corporation and a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for this release, and supervised the preparation of the information forming the basis for this release.

All 6 split core and trench samples were sent to Inspectorate Exploration & Mining Services Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. The gold assays were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. The bottle roll cyanidation process entailed grinding to 105 micrometres and leaching for 72 hours at 40 wt% solids in 1.0 g/L NaCN based on a 300g sample size.
