Metals Creek Provides Garrison Drill Results

The Garrison Project consists of 10 patented mining claims contiguous with Osisko Mining to the west, south and east and contiguous with Kirkland Lake Gold to the north. Metals Creek Resources Corp. announced drill results from its Garrison property, 35 km northwest of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
 
In October of 2018, MEK commenced a 19.725 kilometer (km) ground geophysical survey consisting of Mag and Induced Polarization (IP) over the entire property. Two anomalies, a Southern and Northern Anomalies were delineated.
 
Drill results in the Southern Anomaly  returned of 3.41 g/t Au over 2.74 m and 1.74g/t Au over 9.33m.   
 
This was in an area where historical grades of 22.09 grammes per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) over 6.10 meters (m), including 74.63 g/t Au over 1.52 m were found in 1989 drill results at historic drill hole BM88-1 .
 
In late November, Metal Creek undertook a 5-hole diamond drill program targeting surface gold mineralization  as well as attempting to duplicate mineralization from BM88 series holes.
 
Drill hole GR18-02 had 3.42 g/t au over 0.45 m at the 44 to 44.45 metre depth. At 228.9m to 229.20 depth a grade of 4.87 g/au over 0.30 was obtained. Holes GR18-001 and 002 were engineered to target gold mineralization encountered in historic holes BM88-01 and 03. Best efforts of digitizing historic grid maps, but resulted in an error of approximately 70m. Therefore the historic holes were further southwest than initially thought, resulting in holes GR18-001 and 002 missing the main high-grade target. An old casing was unearthed in the snow upon completion of the program leading to the realization of the 70m error.
 
Drill hole GR18-03 obtained 1.57 g/t au over 1.45m (70.47m to 71.92m) and 1.92 g/t au over 2.78m (138.18m to 140.96m)
Meanwhile GR18-04 obtained 0.56 g/t au over 1.75m (42.3m to 44.05m); 1.77 g/t au over 0.55m (65.20m to 65.75m) and 0.98 g/t Au over 2.0m (104.0m to 106m).
 
Problems incurred at two drill holes GR18-01 and GR18-05 caused them not to be included in the results. 
 
All split core samples were sent to Agat Laboratories. The precious metals were analyzed utilizing a standard fire assay 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. Standards and blanks were inserted randomly into the sample shipments as part of the sampling protocol. Samples with fire assay results above 1.0 g/t gold are re-analyzed using a gravimetric finish and samples with fire assay results above 5.0 g/t gold or samples showing visible gold are analyzed using the pulp metallic method.
