Thunder Bay, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 7, 2023) - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (TSXV: MEK) (FSE: M1C1) (the "Company" or Metals Creek) is pleased to announce that mechanical surface trenching has begun on the Shabaqua Corners Gold Property.
The property is located within the Shebandowan Greenstone Belt, approximately 54 km west of Thunder Bay, Ontario near Shabaqua Corners and on trend to Delta Resources Delta 1 project. The property has seen very little exploration work.
Trenching will focus primarily on recently discovered gold mineralization at Echo Zone (See MEK news release dated August 16, 2023), East Zone as well as highly prospective peripheral areas with encouraging gold assays and alteration outside of the primary targets. Additional trenching will also take place along strike from Main Zone to further delineate the on-strike extent of the pervasive alteration halo (Fe-carbonate, silicification) associated with gold mineralization. Gold mineralization is typically hosted within or at the contact with an iron carbonate altered conglomerate with associated quartz-carbonate veining and 1-5% cubic pyrite, local arsenopyrite and galena. The pervasive carbonate alteration at Echo and East Zones strikes roughly the same orientation to that of Main Zone.
Prospecting, geological mapping, and soil sampling is ongoing with the aim of further delineating known gold mineralization along strike of the recently discovered gold zones as well as continuing to evaluate other prospective areas of the property.
The eastern boundary of the property is located 1.57 kilometers(km) west of Delta Resources (DLTA) drill hole DL-22-18 which returned an intercept of 5.92 g/t Au over 31m (Source: Delta New Release October 31, 2022). Trenching conducted on Delta's ground 390m east of the property boundary, returned an interval of 2.22 g/t Au over 8m (Source: Delta Resources Website).
