Ottawa, Ontario.  Melkior Resources Inc. (“Melkior”) (TSX.V: “MKR”; OTCPK: “MKRIF”; FSE: “MEK”)    is pleased to report that a 5 hole drill program on its 100% owned, Carscallen gold property was completed in December. Two holes were drilled close the boundary with the adjoining Lake Shore Gold Corp. property.  One of the holes was on a previously un-drilled gold occurrence and the other hole was drilled north of the historical Aumo Shaft. Three holes were drilled to fill in un-drilled gaps on the Shenkman and Jowsey zones.

A total of 72 samples each representing approximately one metre of core were split and sent to be analyzed for gold and a suite of other elements. The analytical results are anticipated within a week.
