Iron Creek Provides Drilling Update on Hochschild Joint Venture at Vaquillas

VANCOUVER, Oct. 7 /CNW/ - Iron Creek Capital Corp. (TSX-V: IRN) is pleased to provide an update on the drilling program at the Vaquillas Property in northern Chile being conducted by our Joint Venture partner, Hochschild Mining Holdings Limited ("Hochschild").

According to Hochschild, precious metal mineralization has been identified at the Vaquillas mine target where 4,000 meters of RC drilling was completed in 14 holes. Partial results from 9 holes confirm a broad zone of highly anomalous gold and silver mineralization over an area of 1km by 1km, with high-grade, discrete veins also being encountered. The Company will release the results from all 14 holes when they become available along with results from drilling in the Vetas Negras area. Hochschild also completed a ground magnetic survey in the Vaquillas mine area the results of which will be reported upon review of the data.

Terra Service S.A., an independent drilling contractor, was used to complete the drilling program. Hochschild's samples were collected in accordance with accepted industry standards and best practices. The samples were submitted to ACME laboratories in Santiago, Chile for analysis. As standard procedure, Hochschild conducts routine quality assurance and quality control analysis on all assay results, including the systematic utilization of certified reference materials, blanks, and field duplicates.
