The 2009 drill program was designed to confirm historic drilling results. The Farellon Property was last explored in 1997. Of the five drillholes, three holes FAR-09-A, B and E, tested historic intersections, and two, FAR-09-C and D tested depth extents of the previously known mineralization.

Results of the drilling show grades and widths of mineralization are consistent with historic drilling results as listed in the table below and have also given valuable geological information showing a possible shallow 30 degree dip of the mineralization.

Red Metal's Farellon Property is a copper-gold property in the prolific Candelaria Iron-Oxide Copper-Gold belt. Previous work has outlined a 1.7 kilometre strike length of known mineralization hosted in a mineralized fault zone along strike from the historic Carrizal Alto mine.

Red Metal's President, Caitlin Jeffs, stated, "We are encouraged by the results from this round of drilling which confirms the potential of the Farellon property, and are eager to expand on these results."
