CONSTANTINE REPORTS FINAL DRILL RESULTS FOR TRAPPER GOLD PROJECT, BRITISH COLUMBIA

Including 25 Metres of 1.03 g/t Gold within 147.5 metres of 0.42 g/t Gold

January 17, 2012


Vancouver, BC – Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture – CEM) ("Constantine" or the "Company") is pleased to report final drill results for the 2011 drill program carried out on the Company’s 100% owned Trapper Gold project, northern British Columbia. The 100% partner funded program included 8,581 meters of drilling in 42 holes. The work was completed by Ocean Park Ventures Corp. (“Ocean Park”) who can earn a 70% interest in the project by spending $9.75 million in work expenditures and issuing certain cash and share payments to Constantine.

Mineralization at the Main Gold zone has now been confirmed in drilling over a strike length of 2.3 kilometres. New results include gold-rich sulfide stockwork, including semi-massive mineralization, at the west end of the zone where it has a north-south width of 100 to 150 metre and been drilled to a depth of 150 metres. The zone projects to surface where grab samples have returned up to 14.05 g/t gold, and remains open at depth and along strike.  Results of drilling into this target, as provided by Ocean Park, are summarized in Table 1 and on the accompanying map and section (Figures 1 and 2).

 *Results from TG-11-040 previously reported in news release of November 30th, 2011 included here for context. Reported intersections represent drilled widths, true widths are unkown.

Additional Results
Multiple gold-silver-base metal mineralized structures were intersected in several other holes peripheral to the Main Gold zone (e.g. 2.5 meters grading 2.47 g/t gold in hole TG-11-35,  and 9.8 meters grading 0.19 g/t gold, 2.6 g/t silver and 0.10% zinc in hole TG-11-41). Additional drilling was completed outboard of the Main Gold zone testing a number of gold-in-soil anomalies and gossanous zones, but did not intersect significant gold mineralization. 

Summary of 2011 Program
Prior to the 2011 exploration program, no drilling had been undertaken at the Trapper Gold project and the nature of the mineralization system was unclear.  Highlights of the 2011 Phase 1 drill program include:

  • Recognition of a large porphyry gold-copper complex with at least two porphyry centres, including associated hydrothermal breccias
  • Drilling of a dense, multi-kilometre gold-mineralized structural network including core zones of gold-rich sulfide stockworks that are locally semi-massive in character
  • Drill discovery of gold-mineralized feldspar porphyry dykes and sills with gold grade enrichment at the margins
  • Discovery of at- to near-surface copper-mineralized feldspar porphyry

Ocean Park reports plans for drill-testing all of these targets in 2012, including definition drilling of the gold-mineralized porphyry discoveries and gold-rich sulfide stockworks, which have demonstrated significant grade and size potential.  There are also plans to drill test the core gold-copper porphyry complex located adjacent to the Main Gold zone.

About the Company
Constantine is a gold and copper exploration company that, in addition to the 100% partner funded Trapper Gold project, has multiple active projects located in premier North American exploration environments. These are highlighted by the 100% owned Palmer Project, located in a very accessible part of southeast Alaska, that is host to a NI43-101 compliant 4.12 million tonne inferred resource grading 2.01% copper, 4.79% zinc, 0.30 g/t gold and 31 g/t silver (using an NSR cut-off of US$75/t; see news release dated January 20, 2010), the 100% owned Timmins area Munro-Croesus Project that includes a past-producing mine property that yielded some of the highest grade gold ever mined in Ontario, and a 50/50 Joint Venture with Carlin Gold Corporation exploring a 1000 km2 land position in an emerging new Carlin-type gold district in Yukon.

Notes:
Darwin Green, VP Exploration for Constantine, and a qualified person as defined by Canadian National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed the information contained in this news release. The work program was operated by Ocean Park Ventures Corp. Drill core assay results are evaluated through a Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QAQC) procedure that includes the use of standards with known precious and base metal values, duplicated core intervals and blank samples in order to determine accuracy.  Assaying was carried out by ALS Group of Vancouver, British Columbia.
