Kiska Enters Exploration Agreement with Baker Hughes 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/13 -- Kiska
Metals Corporation ("Kiska" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KSK) is
pleased to report that Geoinformatics Alaska Exploration Inc., a
wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, has signed an exploration
agreement with Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations, Inc., ("Baker
Hughes"). Under this agreement Baker Hughes has the right to explore
the Hilltop Property for barite minerals on the Company's 82
unpatented lode mining claims located in Lander County, Nevada. 
Baker Hughes will make a one-time payment of US$35,000 within 30 days
of executing this agreement and will pay mining claim maintenance
fees while the agreement is in effect. Baker Hughes will have the
right and option at any time during the three year term to enter into
an exclusive 20 year mining lease on the property. Kiska will receive
a royalty of US$2.00 per ton of finished barite ore produced from the
property. Once Baker Hughes enters into a mining lease arrangement,
they will be obligated to make advance minimum royalty payments until
production is commenced. The agreement does not cover precious and
base metal products and Baker Hughes will make their drill splits
available for Kiska's analytical work. Hilltop and the nearby
Colorback properties were acquired for their sediment-hosted gold
potential and are strategically located in the Cortez-Battle Mountain

technology, products and systems to the worldwide oil and natural gas
industry with operations in more than 80 countries. 
"We are very pleased to have signed this exploration agreement with
Baker Hughes and we wish them well as they work to unlock the barite
potential of the Hilltop Property," stated Jason Weber, President and
CEO of Kiska Metals. "In addition to this agreement with Baker
Hughes, Kiska's goal will be to secure a partner to continue gold
exploration on these properties."
