All assays received for February 2010 Diamond Drilling – Dome Mountain Project

The last of the assays have been received, and check-assays completed, for the February 2010 diamond drilling program on the Dome Mountain Project (DMP). Results additional to the April news release are tabulated below. Drillhole collar locations are shown on the attached map, as well as the vein surface projections and the underground workings.

Drillhole DM-10-052

Results for drillhole DM-10-052 were not previously reported, due to an exceptionally high gold assay in the Boulder Footwall Vein, which required check-assaying. This high-value sample was from a 0.2 metre vein intersection, flanked by barren rock.

The exceptionally high value sample was re-assayed from the sample pulp, returning a similar result. After this, a “metallics” assay was conducted on the coarse-crushed sample reject. This type of assaying includes both an assay on the coarse screened fraction, as well as the normally-used fine fraction, with a calculated net assay result. Metallics assays are considered the most accurate method, when there is coarse gold present in the sample. The metallics assay result confirmed the exceptional gold fullContent in the sample.

After these assays were received, the drillcore was re-examined; and three flecks of gold were observed on the sawn surface, and one fleck on the drill-cut surface, all near the centre of the vein. This is the first visible gold seen in core drilled at Dome Mountain in 2009 and 2010.

To provide further assay confirmation, a quarter-core sample was taken over a length of 1.1 metre. The sample was assayed, and a re-assay performed on the pulp, producing a similar result. A metallics assay was then performed on the coarse reject sample. The result of this last assay was a significant value, but much lower than expected based on the first round of sampling.


Metal Mountain Resources News Releases


While extremely high grade results due to the presence of visible gold are rare at Dome Mountain, the results from DM-10-052 demonstrate that a strong "nugget effect" may be present locally. As noted in the previous news release, holes DM-10-050 and DM-10-047 lie on the same cross-section as DM-10-052. DM-10-050 hosts 35.7 g/t gold and 145 g/t silver over a core length of 0.7 metres, 45 metres vertically above the intercept in DM-10-052. Hole DM-10-047 stopped short of the vein. Results from DM-10-050 and DM-10-052 indicate that the Boulder Footwall Vein extends 340m east from the nearest underground mine workings.

Additional Samples

A number of additional samples were taken in March from both exploration and condemnation holes. No significant assays were received from these samples.

Property Summary

The Dome Mountain Project is located 38 km east of Smithers in northwest British Columbia. At Dome Mountain gold and silver mineralization is hosted within mesothermal (orogenic) quartz-carbonate-sulphide veins that cross-cut Jurassic volcanic rocks of the Hazelton Group. The past-producing Boulder Vein System contains an Indicated Resource of 138,000 tonnes grading 15.10 g/t gold and 73.93 g/t silver at a 5 g/t gold cutoff.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Sample analysis for the current program was completed at Assayers Canada Ltd. in Vancouver, BC. A comprehensive quality assurance/quality control program including duplicate samples, blanks and standards formed part of the sampling protocol in addition to the laboratory's own quality assurance program. The field program was supervised by Metal Mountain staff. The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in National Instrument 43-101. Daryl Hanson, P.Eng. is contracted as a consultant to the company and acted as the company's Qualified Person, as defined by National Instrument 43-101 during the drilling program, and has reviewed and approved the full contents of this news release.
