Metals Creek Drills 4.24 g/t Gold over 5.61 meters at the Ogden Gold Project

Thunder Bay Ontario, August 18, 2022 - Metals Creek Resources Corp. (the “Company” or Metals Creek, TSXV: MEK, OTCQB: MCREF, FRA:M1C1) is pleased to announce results for 3 holes of a nine (9) hole diamond drill program (See News Release February 7, 2022) on the Ogden Gold Project in Timmins, Ontario. The Ogden Gold Project is a 50/50 Joint Venture with Newmont Corporation (“Newmont”), with the Company serving as the operator.

Drilling primarily focused on the Thomas Ogden Zone (TOG) with two peripheral targets also tested. Drilling at TOG targeted potential flat lying quartz bearing structures and zones of albitization and silicification with associated mineralization within the lowermost portion of the currently defined TOG fold structure. High grade gold mineralization has a strong preferential association with the TOG fold axis which has a shallow plunge to the east.

Highlights of the drilling include:

TOG-22-71 returned a downhole intercept (324.63 – 336.77m) of 1.13 grammes per ton (g/t) gold (Au) over 12.14 meters (m), visible gold was noted in this intercept. A second zone of mineralization (284.95 – 286.00m) was intercepted returning 12.3 g/t Au over 1.05m.

This hole was drilled to further define gold mineralization associated with the TOG fold structure (See attached Schematic Cross Section 1200W Fig. 1). This zone contains moderate to strong albitization, strong silicification and local fuchsite within an altered felsite unit. Fine-grained disseminated cubic pyrite is the dominant sulfide throughout as well as locally within white quartz-carbonate veinlets. Pyrite ranges from 1-5%, with trace arsenopyrite and several fine specks of visible gold.

TOG-22-72 returned a downhole intercept (354.34 – 356.35m) of 4.71 g/t Au over 2.01m. A second zone of mineralization was cut (373.00 – 376.40m) returning 1.67 g/t Au over 3.4m. This hole (See attached Schematic Cross Section 1175W Fig. 2) was drilled 25m east of hole TOG-21-65A which returned a downhole intercept of 9.20 g/t Au over 4.47m (See News release January 27, 2022) to facilitate a better understanding of potential shallow dipping gold mineralization associated with secondary structures. Alteration consists of moderate to strong albitization and silicification within an altered conglomerate unit with local fuchsite. Fine-grained disseminated cubic pyrite occurs throughout and locally within white quartz-carbonate veinlets. Pyrite ranges from 1-5% along with trace arsenopyrite.

TOG-22-73 returned a downhole intercept (346.25 – 351.86m) of 4.24 g/t Au over 5.61 m. This hole (See attached Schematic Cross Section 1225W Fig. 3) was drilled 25m west of hole TOG-21-65A which returned a downhole intercept of 9.20 g/t Au over 4.47m (See News release January 27, 2022). Like that of hole TOG-22-72, this hole was drilled to further define shallow dipping gold mineralization associated with secondary structures. A strongly altered felsite of intense albitization and silicification with associated wispy fuchsite alteration was intersected with fine-grained disseminated cubic pyrite throughout. Pyrite ranges from 1-5%with trace arsenopyrite and local fine specks of visible gold.
