Metals Creek Resources Reports 81.75% Silver Recovery in Addition to Previously Reported 92.0% Gold Recovery from Bottle Roll Tests Completed on Samples from Squid East Project, Yukon

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MEK) (the "Company" or "Metals Creek") reports silver results from bottle roll cyanide extraction test work, reporting an average of 81.75% silver recovery from drill core and trench samples at the Squid East project. Previously, Metals Creek reported bottle roll tests averaging 92% gold recovery from the same zone. (See news release dated 14 January 2014).

The analysis was carried out to provide preliminary metallurgical information on MEK's new gold-silver discovery located in west central Yukon. This new discovery included values of 1.96 grammes per tonne (g/t) gold and 160.6 g/t Ag over 22.0 meters from trenching and 1.55 g/t gold and 114.1 g/t Ag over 21.0 m from subsequent drilling (see MEK press releases dated August 6, 2013 and October 8, 2013). The recent precious metal results enhances the potential of the zone and the possibility for a near surface bulk tonnage gold/silver system. The mineralized zone is characterized as a highly weathered sericite schist with associated porphyritic sections and remains completely open both along strike and down dip. Additionally, the thickness of the zone has not been ascertained as the three holes which intersected the zone all collared in mineralization. This new discovery, located in the northwest extension of the White Gold District, is within the unglaciated portion of the Yukon, proximal to an existing placer mine and trail accessible.

The silver results, reported here, were obtained from four samples collected from drill core and channel samples. The bottle roll cyanidation process confirmed that the silver recovery in these samples averaged 81.75% indicating that the weathered material could potentially react well to leach extraction methods. Silver recoveries for these four samples ranged from 60.6 to 92.6% and averaged 81.75%. Silver grades for these four samples ranged from 53.7 g/t to 158 g/t. Table 1, below, details the silver results.

In a news release dated 14 January 2014, Metals Creek reported gold recoveries for six samples which 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 those results.

Alexander (Sandy) Stares, President & CEO of Metals Creek Resources, stated, "We are highly encouraged with the precious metal recoveries obtained from the strongly weathered host rock at Squid East. These positive results help enhance the potential of the mineralization and reinforce management's high regard for the project."

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.

The samples were comprised of reject material from the above noted core and channel samples which were delivered to Inspectorate Exploration & Mining Services Ltd. of Vancouver, B.C. The silver assays were obtained utilizing a standard fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. The bottle roll cyanidation process entailed grinding to 105 micrometers and leaching for 72 hours at 40 wt% solids in 1.0 g/L NaCN based on a 300g sample size.
