Samples Submitted for Rush Assaying
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 11, 2019) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK) (OTC: MCREF) (Metals Creek or "the company") is pleased to announce that they have been advised by their option/joint venture partner, Sokoman Minerals Corp. (TSXV: SIC) (OTCQB: SICNF) (or "Sokoman") that the drill program on the Clarks Brook property has been completed and rush assays are underway. The program comprised 1,200 metres in three holes testing the mineralized corridor below the shallow gold zone discovery announced on December 21, 2017. The property is located 33 km to the south-east of Sokoman's flagship Moosehead gold project and is optioned from Metals Creek Resources.
A total of 377 samples (including blanks, standards and duplicates) were submitted for rush assaying, with results expected in approximately 2 weeks. The drilling intersected multiple mineralized zones up to 26 metres thick (core length), at depths to 400 metres vertical, consisting of chalcedonic quartz veining with 1-5% disseminated sulphides, resembling mineralized zones encountered in the previous 2017 drill program.
To earn an initial 75% interest in the Clark's Brook project, Sokoman must make cash payments of $45,000 over three years and issue a total of 3,000,000 Sokoman common shares over three years and incur work expenditures of $800,000 over three years. 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.
This news release has been reviewed and approved by Timothy Froude, P. Geo., a "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101 and President and CEO of Sokoman Minerals Corp.
