Canada Strategic Metals Hits 26.68 g/t Au Over 2 Metres in Channelling at Sakami

15:02 EST Monday, December 16, 2013

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Dec. 16, 2013) - Canada Strategic Metals Inc. ("Canada Strategic Metals" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CJC)(FRANKFURT:YXEN)(OTCBB:CJCFF) and Matamec Explorations Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAT)(OTCQX:MHREF) are pleased to announce the results of their September-October 2013 exploration program. The program consisted of channel sampling of some previously stripped areas, as well as a soil geochemistry survey. The very positive results have confirmed the potential of the JR and De l'Ile areas for the discovery of new showings and resulted in the identification of new drill targets. The table below shows the results of channel sampling, as well as results of some of the chip samples taken from Showing 9.6.

Sakami grab sample results:

Sample # Au ppm
Au g/t
588196 8.11 Showing 9.6
588197 9.35 Showing 9.6
588198 > 10.0 62.92 Showing 9.6
588200 9.06 Showing 9.6

*Grab samples are selective by nature and unlikely to represent the average grade of a deposit.

Channel 13 Showing 43 588149 1.0 4.43 26.68/2m
588150 1.0 > 10.0 49.93

All the samples were sent for analysis in sealed containers to the Bourlamaque Ltee. laboratory in Val-d'Or by employees of the Company. The samples are weighed and identified prior to sample preparation. All samples are analysed by fire assay with AA finish on a 30g sample (0.01-10 ppm Au), with a gravimetric finish for assays over 10 ppm Au.

Mapping of the results of the geochemical survey and selection of the grades over 0.1 ppm Au in the soil indicate four main gold anomalies (see figure at the following link: Other anomalous elements were considered subsequently for values higher than three standard deviations above the mean.

The Company is also announcing that it has dropped its options on the Champagne and North Shore package properties based on further assessment and current market conditions.

Jean-Sebastien Lavallée (OGQ #773), geologist, shareholder and President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this release.
