Group Ten Metals Announces Spy Property Acquisition and Provides Corporate Update

Group Ten Metals Inc. (PGE:TSX.V) (the “Company” or “Group Ten”) announces that it has signed an agreement by which it may earn a 100% interest in the Spy mineral property in the southwest Yukon territory.  The Spy property is highly prospective for copper and nickel sulphide mineralization as well as platinum group metals.  The project covers 1,250 hectares located roughly 40 kilometers southeast of the Company’s Catalyst Project that adjoins Wellgreen Platinum’s advanced Wellgreen PGE-Cu-Ni Project.

Spy PGM-Ni-Cu Project

The Company’s Spy, Ultra and Catalyst Projects are all situated in the Kluane Ultramafic Belt, a 600km-long sequence of igneous and sedimentary rocks extending through the Yukon from northern British Columbia into southern Alaska. Mineralization occurs at the contact between ultramafic and sedimentary rocks with the most notable being the Wellgreen deposit. At Spy, the 75-100m thick ultramafic Spy Sill intrudes the Hasen Creek siltstone for six kilometers along a northwest strike.  Mineralization along the contact varies from disseminated to massive sulfide lenses, with historic grab samples assaying as high as 75.8 g/t Pt, 7.9 g/t Pd, 7.0 g/t Au, 2.6% Ni and 10.45% Cu (Bell, C. 1996. Report on 1995 geological and geochemical surveys on the Klu property. Yukon Dept. of Energy, Mines and Resources, Assessment Report #093371, 244p.).

CEO Michael Rowley comments: “We are very pleased to be completing our third acquisition in the area as we continue to work to our vision of becoming the lead exploration company and prospect generator in the region.  The Spy project offers particularly high grade in the historic results and we are now planning exploration work to further advance the project.”

By the terms of the agreement, Group Ten has the option to earn a 100% interest in the Spy project by issuing 1,050,000 shares over three years.  The vendors retain a 3% NSR royalty with a buy-down to 1% for $1.5 million at any time before the commencement of production.  The issuance of stock per the agreement is subject to regulatory approval.

Corporate Update

The Company also announces that Lawrence Page, QC, has resigned as a Director and Officer of Group Ten Metals.  The Company thanks Mr. Page for his guidance and commitment and wishes him the very best in his future endeavours.
