MetalCorp Completes Geophysical and Geochemical Surveys on Pickle and Red Lake Properties
High-Priority Coincident Anomalies returned on both properties-- Follow-up Surveys Underway and Drill Campaign Planned for New Year
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA (November 30, 2010) - MetalCorp Limited ("MetalCorp" or the "Company") (TSXV -- MTC) has completed a review of the results of its combined geophysical and geochemical surveys on the Connell and North Tarp sections of its 100% owned Pickle Lake property, which lies immediately north of Pickle Lake, Ontario, and on its Black Bear Property, near Red Lake, Ontario. The Company has initiated follow-up surveys in both areas.
At Pickle Lake, geochemical work (Mobile Metal Ion (MMI)) sampling on the Connell and North Tarp grids, which lie near opposite ends of MetalCorp's extensive property package, highlighted a number of large-scale multi-element geochemical anomalies. A number of these coincide with chargeability and magnetometer highs outlined in Induced Polarization (IP) and Magnetometer (Mag) work completed by MetalCorp on the same grids this past fall. In order to fully outline and better define several of the anomalies, MetalCorp is extending the North Tarp grid by a further 30 to 40 line-kilometers. Further geophysical surveying (IP and Mag) will be completed on the new grid lines prior to drilling this winter.
In the Red Lake area, combined MMI, IP, and Mag surveys on MetalCorp's Black Bear Property, which lies astride the well-mineralized East Bay Deformation Zone, in an area between the "Gaz Zone" of Goldcorp and Premier Gold, and the Sidace Lake play of Goldcorp and Planet Exploration, have yielded a number of coincident multi-element geochemical and geophysical anomalies. At Black Bear, the anomalies highlight at least three areas of potential precious and/or base metals mineralization. MetalCorp has already completed the fieldwork on a higher definition (25m x 25m grid) follow-up MMI survey on the highest priority anomalies, and is now awaiting receipt of the interpretive report. Once received, the results will be compiled with the results of the geophysical surveys, so that the Company can plan its next steps in exploration, which will include diamond drill-testing.
"The work committed to by MetalCorp on these properties is beginning to yield positive results. We now have a very strong basis on which to expand that work, and move toward confident drill testing of both properties" stated Chris Dougherty, President of MetalCorp.
"We are looking forward to continuing our work on the Pickle and Red lake properties, and have begun planning for the drill campaigns." concluded Dougherty.
