Drill Results Include 22.86 Metres of 2.51 g/t Gold in Mineralized Porphyry

Vancouver, BC – Constantine Metal Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture – CEM) ("Constantine" or the "Company") is pleased to report initial drill results for Ocean Park Ventures Corp.’s ("Ocean Park") 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, with assay results for 24 holes now received. Ocean Park 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.

Gold-silver +/- copper, lead, and zinc mineralization has been identified in multiple different environments within an inferred large copper-gold porphyry setting. At the Main Zone, drilling has intersected gold mineralization over a 2.2 kilometre strike length and includes both porphyry hosted and structurally controlled gold. Porphyry hosted mineralization, which represents a potential bulk tonnage target, consists of disseminated and stockwork sulphide within near-surface feldspar porphyry dykes and sills (Table 1).

Reported intersections represent drilled widths, true widths are unkown.

A large number of gold- silver-lead-zinc mineralized structures have also been intersected in Main Zone drilling.  Structures are high-angle and inferred to radiate from a main porphyry centre.  Highlight results are summarized in Table 2.

Reported intersections represent drilled widths, true widths are unkown. Drill holes TG-11-003, 007, 008, 009, 015, 016, 019, 021, 032 and 037 all intersected iron carbonate plus sulfide mineralization, but did not intersect mineralization of greater than 1 g/t gold over greater than a metre.

Gold bearing semi-massive sulfide stockworks intersected in TG-11-004, 018 and 040 project to surface, and have returned grab samples up to 14 g/t gold.  Follow-up drilling is planned by Ocean Park to test these targets in 2012.

In addition to gold mineralized porphyry in drill core, signatures of a property-wide gold and copper porphyry system were identified. These include both large-scale geophysical and geochemical zoning patterns, porphyry style hydrothermal breccias, and grab samples with up to 0.43 percent copper.

Ocean Park reports plans to immediately undertake an airborne ZTEM geophysical survey to follow up on these discoveries, the results of which will be used together with 2011 exploration results to guide an expanded 2012 drill program. Over the course of the work program Ocean Park expanded their property position in the area through staking of additional claims and option agreements with third parties. Some of the newly acquired ground falls under an Area of Interest defined within the option agreement between Constantine and Ocean Park. A more detailed description of the 2011 work program and current property holdings can be found at Ocean Park’s website (
