VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2013) - Kiska Metals Corporation (News - Market indicators) ("Kiska" or the "Company") is pleased to report that the Company has completed the sale of its Thorn Property to Brixton Metals Corporation, for a purchase price of CDN$1,500,000 in cash and seven million shares of Brixton. Kiska now holds 7.55 million shares, or 7.7% or Brixton's outstanding shares.

The sale of the Thorn Property is part of the Company's ongoing strategy of generating capital and putting this funding to its portfolio of mineral projects. 

"With Brixton very close to fulfilling its exploration requirements for the 51% earn-in, this transaction simplifies the ownership of the Thorn Project. We felt the opportunity to add cash to our treasury in a non-dilutive manner was prudent considering the market conditions junior explorers face today," stated Jason Weber, President and CEO of Kiska Metals. "Brixton has done well to bring in Hecla as a strategic partner at Thorn and as a significant shareholder we wish them every success in their continued exploration of the property."

The 189 square kilometre Thorn Property is located 120 kilometres northwest of Telegraph Creek, BC. Brixton signed an option agreement to earn a 51% interest in the Thorn by funding $5 million in exploration by the end of 2014 ($4.1 million spent to date). At Kiska's election, Brixton could fund an additional $10 million in exploration to earn an additional 14% interest (totaling 65%) in the property. Exploration is targeting high sulphidation epithermal vein-hosted high-grade copper-gold-silver mineralization and breccia-hosted high-grade silver and gold mineralization.
