Red Metal Resources Adds Ground to its Farellon Copper-Gold Project in Chile's IOCG Belt

THUNDER BAY, ON, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ - Red Metal Resources Ltd. (OTCBB:RMES), a mineral exploration company with copper-gold assets in Chile, today announced that it has staked a new exploration claim at its Farellon copper-gold project, located in the prolific Candelaria iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) belt of Chile's coastal Cordillera.

Red Metal's new claim is 300 hectares (741 acres) and borders its present claim to the south covering an additional one kilometer strike extent of the Farellon mineralized zone. Following the addition of this exploration claim, Farellon comprises 1096 hectares (2708 acres) of mining and exploration claims. The new claim is an area that requires additional permitting from the Chilean government for mining activities.

The Farellon Project is located 2.4 kilometers southwest of the historic Carrizal Alto mine. It is a 45 minute drive from Vallenar city, with major road access, power and water supply close by.

Previous work at Farellon outlined a 1.7 kilometer strike length of known mineralization hosted in a mineralized fault zone along strike from the historic Carrizal Alto mine. This new exploration claim adds an extra kilometer potential strike length to this mineralized zone.

The Farellon Project was last explored in late 2009 with a five hole, 725 meter, reverse circulation drill program which produced the following results:
