Alexander (Sandy) Stares, President and CEO of Metals Creek states "Management is extremely pleased with this latest round of drilling on the Thomas Ogden Zone. Our team has done a tremendous job utilizing data from our previous drilling to understand the complex nature of the folds and structures related to the zone."
Going forward, MEK's plans include additional drilling once the new information is interpreted and incorporated into a revised model of the zone. The future drilling will focus on establishing the geometry and size of the potential resource and is scheduled for late summer-early fall, once the joint venture funding requirements have been established.
Prior to the resumption of drilling on the Ogden property, the Corporation is planning on completing a trenching and drilling program on its Squid East project which is located within the White Gold district in the Yukon. This program will be funded by GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: GTA) who can earn up to 70% of the project interest over a five year period (see press release January 10, 2013). The planned trenching program will test several highly prospective soil anomalies discovered over the last two field seasons and will be followed up by a small drill program in August.
The Ogden claims cover eight kilometers of strike length of the Porcupine-Destor Break between Goldcorp's Dome Mine and Lake Shore Gold's West Timmins Mine. Metals Creek and Goldcorp (Goldcorp Canada Ltd. and Goldcorp Inc.) have recently formed a 50/50 joint venture on the Ogden Gold project with Metals Creek being the operator.
All split core samples were sent to Accurassay, an accredited laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 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.
