Toronto, 27 February 2012. Metals Creek Resources Corp. ("MEK", TSXV: MEK) is pleased to announce that it has received regulatory approval for the Option Agreement with GTA Resources and Mining Inc. ("GTA") reported by press release on January 10, 2013 whereby GTA can earn a 51% to 70% interest in MEK's Squid East property in the Matson Creek area of Yukon Territory. The 82 claim Squid East property was initially staked by MEK in 2011 and there are no underlying royalties or other interests on the property.
To earn an initial 51% interest, GTA must make cash payments of $60,000 over three years ($20,000 due upon regulatory approval), issue a total of 2,000,000 GTA shares over three years (200,000 due upon regulatory approval) and incur work expenditures of $2,000,000 over three years ($500,000 firm including a minimum 400 meters of drilling by 1st anniversary). MEK will be the operator during the earn-in period. Once a 51% interest is earned by GTA, either a 51/49 joint venture will be formed, or GTA may elect to earn an additional 19% interest to bring its total property interest to 70%.
The terms to increase GTA's interest from 51% to 70% include payment of $210,000 and 400,000 GTA shares within 120 days of the 3rd anniversary date and incurring an additional $1,000,000 in exploration expenditures by the 5th anniversary. GTA would assume operatorship once it had earned a 51% interest.
