VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- Metallis Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MTS) (the "Company" or "Metallis Resources") is pleased to announce it has expanded the Kirkham Property to the northwest by staking an additional 536 hectares. This new claim covers an area upstream from several of the highest (98th percentile) gold-in-silt samples obtained during a regional sampling program carried out by the British Columbia government. This highly prospective area is very close to the large property recently staked by Colorado Resources Ltd.
Fiore Aliperti, President of the Company states: "The staking of this new claim was strategic and pre-emptive in nature, as it is consolidates the Company's total property holdings in the 'Golden Triangle' region of Northwestern British Columbia and protects excellent targets during the current staking rush."
The newly-consolidated Kirkham Property was assembled because of its exploration potential for hosting Eskay Creek types of stratabound gold, silver, lead and zinc mineralization. In addition, the mineralized Hawlison Porphyry has excellent untested Copper/Gold potential. Precious metal bearing veins have also been identified on the Property. The Company is continuing to assess and review the results of an airborne EM/Mag/Spec survey, historical data, along with the data compiled from the purchase of the Mt. Dunn Property. The data, once compiled, will determine the planning of the 2014 Exploration Program.
