MetalCorp to Start Drilling Campaign at Hemlo East Property

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA (September 28, 2010) - MetalCorp Limited ("MetalCorp" or the "Company") (TSXV -- MTC) is pleased to announce that the Company will be commencing a drilling campaign at the Gouda Lake Zone, part of MetalCorp's 100%-owned Hemlo East property, on October 4, 2010. To this end, MetalCorp has engaged Full Force Diamond Drilling Ltd. as its contractor (www.diamondcoredrilling.com).

The work is aimed at a previously identified near-surface gold-silver mineralized zone which was the basis for an in-house resource estimate calculated by Lac Minerals Ltd. in the early 1990's (that resource estimate pre-dated NI 43-101 and, accordingly, is non-compliant with the requirements of NI 43-101; it therefore cannot be relied upon). MetalCorp, in keeping with recent changes in its corporate strategy to include development efforts, has completed an internal review of the Gouda Lake Zone which suggests that it may be viable to mine.

"The geophysics survey completed on site was very encouraging, and MetalCorp is looking forward to commencing this drill campaign to move this project forward. Once we see the results of this campaign we can start planning the next phase of this project", says Chris Dougherty, P.Eng., President of MetalCorp.

MetalCorp is a mineral exploration company based in Thunder Bay, Ontario, with gold and base metal projects in the Canadian Shield of Northern Ontario, Canada, one of the most prolific mineral districts in the world. To find out more about MetalCorp visit its website at www.metalcorp.ca.
