  • American Creek’s JV Partner Tudor Gold Intersects 1,152 Meters of 0.741 gpt AuEq, Including 1.561 gpt AuEq over 121.5 Meters and 0.968 gpt AuEq over 414 Meters with Hole GS-20-75

Step-Out Hole GS-20-70 Extends the Goldstorm 300 Horizon and CS-600 Zone Another 150 Meters to the Northeast as Drilling Continues with Six Drills at Treaty Creek

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – October 26, 2020) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to present results for the fourth set of diamond drill holes at their flagship property, Treaty Creek, located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. Diamond drilling continues with six drill rigs currently working on the Goldstorm Zone which is on-trend from Seabridge’s KSM Project, 5 km to the southwest. All nine of the recent drill holes have successfully intersected the Goldstorm System expanding the mineralization to the northeast and southeast, as well as to depth. The Goldstorm System 300 Horizon has now been traced for 1100 meters along the northeast axis and in addition, the CS-600 and DS-5 systems have been expanded to the northeast and to depth as well. All 26 drill holes completed at Goldstorm during the 2020 program have encountered significant precious metal mineralization.

Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., stated: “The goal is to drill-define the limits of the Goldstorm system mineralization. We are very pleased with the results obtained from the 2020 drill holes that have yet to define limits or boundaries to the mineralized target along the northeastern and the southeastern axes, and to depth as well as we keep encountering mineralization versus non-mineralized host rock. Drill hole results from GS-20-75 demonstrate that several aspects of the mineralized horizon appear to be gaining strength at depth with significant Au-Cu-Ag mineralization encountered in the CS-600 zone which averaged 0.968 gpt AuEq over 414 meters. Our technical team has to date received drill hole results from 26 diamond drill holes at Goldstorm and three holes from the PSZ Zone, totaling 24,343.6 meters. Samples from 12 drill holes are awaiting results from MSA Labs, totaling 12,443.7 meters, with six additional holes currently being drilled that are expected to total more than 6,500 meters. The information released to date represents just over half of the drill information we plan to collect for this year’s program at Goldstorm. We have also received good news from MSA Labs that they hope to get back to our scheduled 15-day turn-around-time for results. We are confident that our combined efforts will expediate the news flow for the near-future.”

Goldstorm Highlights include:

  • Nine diamond drill holes in this release totaled 10,234.2 meters, all hitting the intended targets with favorable results listed in the tables below.
  • Best intercept was from GS-20-75 on Section 114+00 NE that averaged 0.741 gpt AuEq over 1152.0 metres (112.0-1264.0 m) containing an enriched portion of 121.5 meters (232.0-353.5 m) that averaged 1.561 gpt AuEq.
  • GS-20-75 also had a remarkable 414.0 meter intercept (833.5-1247.5 m) of 0.968 gpt AuEq within the CS-600 Zone, which is the longest intercept for CS-600 drilled to date.
  • Tudor Gold has surpassed the previous longest mineralized intercept with GS-20-79 on section 112+00 NE, 150 meters southwest of GS-20-75. This hole intersected 1338 meters (81.5-1419.5m) of 0.595 gpt Au Eq with the upper portion of the 300 Horizon averaging 0.877 gpt AuEq over 484.5 meters (81.5-566.0 m).
  • A 150 meter extension of the 300, CS-600 and DS-5 Zones was confirmed by an aggressive step-out to the northeast with hole GS-20-70 on section 115+50 NE. The intercept averaged 0.500 gpt AuEq over 1218.0 meters and mineralization remains open to the northeast, northwest and southeast along Section 115+50 NE.
  • The DS-5 System appears to be gaining strength to the northeast; hole GS-20-64, the north-easternmost hole, returned the strongest result for DS-5, averaging 0.983 gpt AuEq over 550.55 meters with an enriched portion averaging 1.482 gpt AuEq over 154.5 meters (Press Release July 27, 2020).

  • All assay values are uncut and intervals reflect drilled intercept lengths.
  • HQ and NQ2 diameter core samples were sawn in half and typically sampled at standard 1.5m intervals.
  • The following metal prices were used to calculate the Au Eq metal content: Gold $1322/oz, Ag: $15.91/oz, Cu: $2.86/lb. Calculations used the formula Au Eq g/t = (Au g/t) + (Ag g/t x 0.012) + (Cu% x 1.4835). All metals are reported in USD and calculations do not consider metal recoveries. True widths have not been determined as the mineralized body remains open in all directions. Further drilling is required to determine the mineralized body orientation and true widths.

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “For the fourth consecutive press release this year, we again are very pleased to announce a result that surpassed our finest result from the 2019 drill program. Last year, we had an excellent intercept from hole GS-19-47, which yielded 0.697 gpt Au Eq over 1081.5 meters (Section 114+00 NE)- and now we have yet another hole, GS-20-75 with a comparable result that was drilled along the same section but in the opposite direction from GS-19-47. Drill hole GS-20-75 averaged 0.741 gpt Au Eq over an impressive 1152.0 meters. With every hole our technical team completes, we are further defining the mineralized area. Clearly, however, much more drilling is required to locate the limits of the system due to the size and robust nature of the mineralization. Our commitment is to advance the project as far as possible this year and our team will push the winter elements to continue drilling as long as the conditions permit. We are proud of what we have achieved in these last two years of exploration. Given the amount of geological potential that the entire project possesses with the Goldstorm, Perfect Storm Z, Eureka and Orpiment Systems, we believe that similar results will continue to enhance the prospects for the Treaty Creek Project.”

Darren Blaney, CEO of American Creek commented: “The Goldstorm continues to impress. Yet another step out hole has hit significant gold mineralization and has extended the zone another 150m to the northeast. Even after all this 2020 drilling, we still don’t know the extent or bounds of the Goldstorm but clearly, it’s a truly massive gold zone. I congratulate Walter, Ken, and the whole Tudor team on the incredible effort and the associated incredible success as they continue to keep six drills turning at Treaty Creek. I also commend Sean and the More Core Drilling team for their commitment and Get it Done attitude and professionalism.”

Tudor Gold Corp and associated service companies have taken extreme measures to maintain the highest professional standards while working within COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Only essential personnel are permitted to enter the camp and staging areas. Of those who are at the project site and staging site, we have strict daily monitoring of the workers’ temperatures and general health conditions. We have a certified paramedic at the staging area to examine all in-coming and out-going Tudor personnel and all service providers.

The Treaty Creek Project is a Joint Venture with Tudor Gold owning 3/5th and acting as operator. American Creek and Teuton Resources each have a 1/5th interest in the project creating a 3:1 ownership relationship between Tudor Gold and American Creek. American Creek and Teuton are both fully carried until such time as a Production Notice is issued, at which time they are required to contribute their respective 20% share of development costs. Until such time, Tudor is required to fund all exploration and development costs while both American Creek and Teuton have “free rides”.

Treaty Creek Background

The Treaty Creek Project lies in the same hydrothermal system as Pretium’s Brucejack mine and Seabridge’s KSM deposits with far better logistics.

American Creek Provides Update on Its First Quarter Filings

American Creek Resources (AMK:TSX-V) Treaty Creek Project has been the subject of incredible discussion in 2020, including by Eric Sprott who stated Treaty Creek may have as much as 50,000,000 ounces of gold this summer.

There isn’t a single junior exploration company that isn’t envious of Treaty Creek and the one good problem it is creating for the Company – it is overshadowing everything else in the Company.  As such, AMK announced the following:

“American Creek Announces Spinout of Dunwell Property and Other Properties and Assets and Sets Date for Annual General & Special Meeting”

Watch this powerful interview with CEO Darren Blaney as to the reasons for the spinout that go well beyond the obvious.

  • American Creek will transfer the Assets to a wholly-owned subsidiary, Stinger Resources Inc. in consideration for 45,000,000 Stinger common shares

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – October 5, 2020) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (the “Company” or “American Creek“) is pleased to announce that its board of directors has unanimously approved a spinout of the Company’s Dunwell Property, and other properties and assets, to its shareholders by way of a share capital reorganization effected through a statutory plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement“). Under the Arrangement, American Creek will transfer the Assets (defined below) to a wholly-owned subsidiary, Stinger Resources Inc. (“Stinger“), in consideration for 45,000,000 Stinger common shares. The Stinger shares will then be distributed to American Creek’s shareholders pro rata their interest in American Creek. Upon completion of the Arrangement, American Creek’s shareholders will own shares in two public companies.

The assets that will be transferred to Stinger under the Arrangement will be the Dunwell, D1 McBride and Gold Hill properties, the optioned interests in the Silver Side, Ample Goldmax and Glitter King properties, 1,400,499 common shares of Tudor Gold Corp., the office located at #92 – 2nd Avenue West, Cardston, Alberta, together with office furniture and equipment located therein, certain vehicles, $1,500,000 – $3,000,000 cash and the right to receive 80% of the net warrant exercise proceeds received by the Company after completion of the Arrangement from the exercise of warrants that were outstanding at the time of completion of the Arrangement (collectively, the “Assets“).

Upon completion of the Arrangement, Stinger’s principal property will be the Dunwell Property. Consequently, the Company does not expect that it will conduct further work on the Dunwell Property at this time as any exploration work conducted prior to the closing of the spinout transaction may potentially result in “material events” which could have the effect of delaying the spinout transaction. After the Arrangement is completed, Stinger will continue with exploration work programs on the Dunwell Property.

American Creek will retain its 20% interest in the Treaty Creek Property and 100% interest in the Austruck Bonanza Property and will focus its immediate attention on conducting further exploration work on the Austruck Bonanza Property as it continues to have a carried interest in the Treaty Creek Property until such time as a production notice is issued, if ever.

The spinout transaction will be effected pursuant to the arrangement provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) and must be approved by the Supreme Court of British Columbia and by the affirmative vote of two-thirds (2/3) of American Creek’s shareholders in attendance at a shareholders’ meeting to be held on December 3, 2020 (the “Meeting“).

Under the Arrangement, the Company’s current shareholders will receive Stinger common shares by way of a share exchange, pursuant to which each existing common share of the Company will be exchanged for one new American Creek common share (each, a “New American Creek Share“) and 0.11973 of a Stinger share. Holders of American Creek options and warrants will also be entitled to receive one New American Creek Share and 0.11973 of a Stinger share on exercise of each option and warrant. On completion of the Arrangement, American Creek shareholders, option holders and warrant holders will maintain their interest in American Creek and will acquire a proportionate interest in Stinger. Upon completion of the Arrangement it is intended that Stinger will have 45,000,000 common shares issued and outstanding. American Creek currently has 375,851,109 issued and outstanding common shares. If this number changes prior to completion of the Arrangement, which may occur if outstanding warrants or options are exercised, then the fraction 0.11973 referred to above will adjusted so that it is the fraction calculated by dividing 45,000,000 by the number of outstanding American Creek shares immediately prior to the effective time of the Arrangement.

Completion of the Arrangement is subject to a number of conditions, including the following:

  • American Creek shareholder approval at the Meeting;
  • The approval of the Supreme Court of British Columbia;
  • TSXV approval for the Arrangement by American Creek; and,
  • TSXV approval for the listing of the Stinger shares upon completion of the Arrangement.

Upon completion of the Arrangement, it is intended that Darren Blaney will be the CEO and President of Stinger and Robert Edwards will be Stinger’s CFO. Upon completion of the Arrangement, it is expected that Stinger’s Board will be comprised of Darren Blaney, Robert Edwards, Dennis Edwards and Sean Pownall. Changes and additions to the management team and Board may be made thereafter, as needed, as the company moves forward with its exploration projects.

Additional details regarding the Arrangement will be included in the Information Circular to be mailed to shareholders of American Creek in early November 2020, in connection with the Meeting. The Arrangement is expected to close the end of December 2020 or early January 2021.

American Creek holds a strong portfolio of gold and silver properties in British Columbia.

Three of those properties are located in the prolific “Golden Triangle”; the Treaty Creek joint venture project with Tudor (Walter Storm) as well as the 100% owned past producing Dunwell Mine and 100% owned D1 McBride properties.

American Creek $AMK.ca Completes High-Resolution Magnetic and LIDAR Surveys at Past Producing Dunwell Mine Property in Golden Triangle of BC $TUD.ca $SII.ca $GTT.ca $AFF.ca $SEA.ca $SA $PVG.ca $AOT.ca $ESK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:38 AM on Friday, September 11th, 2020

American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to report that it has now completed a 450 line km high-resolution magnetic survey in combination with a LIDAR survey at the company’s 100% owned Dunwell Mine gold and silver property located in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia.

Genesis Aviation Inc. was chosen to complete the High-Resolution Gradient Magnetometer survey in conjunction with a Three-Dimensional LIDAR survey over the property. This type of magnetic survey is flown by a low altitude helicopter and offers Measured Horizontal and Vertical Gradient data. This makes a significant difference to the magnetic inversion that provides a model at depth. The survey, which was conducted over the whole property, will allow the past, present and future geological and geophysical programs to be correlated with a much higher degree of accuracy than otherwise possible.

The geophysical instruments used were GEM Systems GSMP-35A Potassium Vapor Magnetometers mounted in a Tri-Axal array.

Darren Blaney, CEO and President stated: “We look forward to seeing the results of the recently completed magnetic and Lidar surveys as that new data, combined with our fall 2019 IP data, will greatly expand our understanding of the underground geology and enhance drill placement and targeting. We will also now be able to develop strong correlations between known mineralized zones and future untested targets thus potentially improving our hit ratio as we target these high-grade vein systems with the drill.

We have always thought that the numerous high-grade gold and silver showings associated with the Portland Canal Fissure Zone, that extends through the property for several kilometers down the valley, are related in some meaningful way and are likely part of the same geological event. We will soon be in position to begin proving this with the commencement of the Dunwell Phase II drill program planned for this fall.”

The Dunwell Mine is a high-grade past producing polymetallic mine located just 8 kilometers by road from the shipping town of Stewart, BC. The mine itself is one of dozens of high-grade gold / silver / lead / zinc occurrences that are primarily associated with the Portland Canal Fissure zone that extends for several kilometers through the property. The Dunwell Mine project boasts exceptional logistics and a rich mining history with potential for future development. It is located within the Bear River valley which was one of the first areas prospected in the Stewart camp because of its combination of rich veins and easy access due to the low elevation and close proximity to town.

Because of the property’s low elevation and heavy rainfall, it is completely covered with a heavy canopy of vegetation with exposed bedrock limited to gullies and stream beds. Notwithstanding this limited surface outcrop, there are over two dozen known high-grade showings on the property. As no modern exploration techniques or technologies had been employed on the Dunwell property prior to American Creek’s acquisition, careful consideration was given as to the best options and techniques that could lead to discovery. This analysis resulted in a decision to proceed with an extensive Induced Polarization (IP) survey in the fall of 2019 and, to further define targets, this just completed detailed Magnetic survey in 2020.

Alpha IP was chosen over a conventional IP survey because of its cutting-edge technology in detecting detailed high chargeability / low resistance anomalies in the ground. Specifically, the Alpha IP survey has far greater resolution and depth than standard IP’s and can provide the data in a 3D view. These are critical factors as the Dunwell Mine property contains numerous high-grade veins that are potentially more readily detected using a high-resolution survey.

Simcoe Geoscience, who performed the survey, was chosen because of their exceptional experience in this field and the in-depth interpretation they provide. Once the data provided by Genesis is processed, Simcoe will also be using their expertise to integrate the new 3D Magnetic Survey results with the existing IP results, the 2019 maiden drill program results, and all historic data in order to fine tune drill targets. Simcoe’s same Alpha IP system continues to achieve success locating high-grade veins at Ascot’s neighboring Silbak-Premier Mine (9km away).

The exploration objectives of the Alpha IP survey were to detect the source of potential high‐grade Au, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cu in quartz and detect quartz breccia vein systems hosted within thin bedded argillite, siltstone and greywacke of the Middle Jurassic Salmon River Formation (Hazelton Group). The Alpha IP system was used to provide the following benefits:

  • Detect and delineate zones and structures related to the emplacement of sulphide mineralization to depths of up to 400 meters with chargeability and resistivity.
  • Mapping the resistivity and chargeability features related to mineralization, alteration, faults and lithologies.

Results from the fall 2019 survey resulted in thirty-seven anomalous zones being identified and interpreted as significant targets for follow up from surface to ~300m+ depth. Out of thirty-seven anomalous zones, fifteen are considered first priority, sixteen second and six are third priority targets. The anomalous zones consist of strong to moderate chargeability related to associated conductive to resistive zones. These targets have a strong correlation with the Portland Canal Fissure Zone with the strongest targets running along the Dunwell Creek / Portland Canal Faults, the secondary targets running down each side of the primary target, and the tertiary targets running along the western edge of the fissure zone.

Property Description and History

The Dunwell property is located just 7 km east of the Silbak Premier Mine (Ascot Resources), 11 km west of the Red Mountain deposit (Ascot – formally IDM), and only 9 km north of the past producing Porter Idaho silver mine (Strikepoint Gold). Through a series of strategic acquisitions American Creek was able to purchase the past-producing Dunwell Mine as well as several adjoining very prospective properties, combining them into one large land package that encompasses the most promising gold and silver mineral occurrences and historic workings within the Bear River valley. The amalgamated property spans 2,222 hectares covering the majority of the Portland Canal Fissure Zone, an area first prospected in the late 1800’s and hosting some of the earliest producing gold and silver mines in the Stewart area.

The Portland Canal Fissure Zone is the most significant geological feature in the Bear River valley. This zone of faulting and shearing trends north, dips steeply west, and hosts a vein system that extends southward for 6.5 kilometres from the Victoria/Dandy occurrence (on Dunwell) in the north, through the Dunwell mine itself, across Glacier Creek to the Ben Bolt occurrence (on Dunwell) in the south. With the recent acquisition of the Glacier Creek Crown Grants (south of Glacier Creek), American Creek now controls 5km of the 6.5km fissure zone which contains numerous high-grade polymetallic mineral occurrences including two past producing mines (Dunwell and Portland Canal).

The Dunwell project is located 8km northeast of Stewart and is road accessible with the Dunwell Mine adit itself located only 2km from Highway 37A and a major power line (both running through the property). Stewart hosts two deep sea ports including ore loading and shipping facilities. Unlike the majority of mineral properties located in the Golden Triangle near Stewart, the Dunwell Mine is located in low mountainous terrain (800m and lower elevation) with relatively moderate relief. These features allow for potential year-round work which typically isn’t the case for exploration programs conducted in the Stewart region where projects are typically at higher altitude, are accessible only by helicopter, and lack critical infrastructure such as roads and power. The Dunwell Mine project may very well have the best logistics of any project within the Golden Triangle.

According to historic records, the Dunwell Mine is the most significant mineral occurrence within the Portland Canal Fissure Zone. Production at the Dunwell occurred between 1926 and 1941. From historic production reports, it appears that a total of 45,657 tonnes averaging 6.63 g/t gold, 223.91 g/t silver, 1.83% lead, 2.43% zinc and 0.056% copper were produced.

American Creek’s Phase I maiden drill program on the Dunwell (which took place within the vicinity of the Dunwell Mine in the fall of 2019) produced many high-grade intercepts including:

  • 19.4 g/t AuEq over 3.6m
  • 20.3 g/t AuEq over 2.69m
  • 38.1 g/t AuEq over 0.5m
  • 28.5 g/t AuEq over 0.45m
  • 24.4 g/t AuEq over 0.5m
  • 18.4 g/t AuEq over 1.5m
  • 19.5 g/t AuEq over 1.2m
  • 13.3 g/t AuEq over 1.4m
  • 16.2 g.t AuEq over 0.8m
  • 15.1 g/t AuEq over 0.6m
  • 28.2 g/t AuEq over 0.43m
  • 18.5 g/t AuEq over 0.7m
  • 10.7 g/t AuEq over 1m
  • 15.1 g/t AuEq over 0.6m

*AuEq uses $1,500 gold, $18 silver, $0.88 lead, $0.95 Zinc and $2.5 copper

For a table showing breakdown of metals and complete results please click here for the press release.

In addition to the Dunwell mine itself, the property package also contains over two dozen other high-grade gold and silver occurrences and historic small-scale gold/silver high-grading operations along a north/south trend that correlates to the fissure zone and major faulting. Some examples of the nine areas on the Dunwell property that produced ore historically are:

  • Ben Ali:                4,500 tons at 21.6 g/t gold
  • Lakeview             60 tons at 4.7 g/t gold, 2,734 g/t silver, and 11.5% lead
  • Victoria                11 tons at 20.15 g/t gold, 775 g/t silver, 25% lead
  • Tyee                      8.2 tons at 124.4 g/t gold and 4,478.8 g/t silver
  • George E             12 tons at 13 g/t gold and 3,250 g/t silver, 23.3% lead

Each of these areas were producing during the 1930’s when exploration techniques and technology was very primitive. They were basically high-grading operations focused on vein systems that were exposed on surface.

The High-Resolution Gradient Magnetometer survey combined with the 3D Alpha IP survey represent the cutting edge in geophysical technology today and are designed to aid with understanding potential correlations between the multiple high-grade surface showings.

The Dunwell Phase II drill program is expected to commence in the near future once the data and interpretation from the geophysical survey is integrated with the IP data, last year’s drilling data, and all historical data.

American Creek’s $AMK.ca JV Partner Tudor Gold Discovers a Significant New Gold-Silver-Copper Mineralized System at the Perfectstorm (PSZ) at Treaty Creek $TUD.ca $SII.ca $GTT.ca $AFF.ca $SEA.ca $SA $PVG.ca $AOT.ca $ESK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:32 AM on Wednesday, September 9th, 2020
  • Drill Hole GS-20-73 Expands the 300 Horizon with a 229.5 Meter Intercept Averaging 1.506 Gpt AuEq Within a 775.5 Meter Interval Averaging 0.932 Gpt AuEq. 
  • Drill Hole GS-20-66 Expands the CS-600 System 100 Metres to the Southeast with a 75 Meter Intercept Averaging 2.150 Gpt AuEq.
  • Expands the Goldstorm Mineralization Along the Northeast Axis to 1100 Meters

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – September 9, 2020) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to report that its JV partner Tudor Gold Corp announced today that it has completed the third set of diamond drill holes at our JV flagship property, Treaty Creek located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia. Diamond drilling is progressing very well with six diamond drill rigs currently working on the Goldstorm Zone which is on-trend from Seabridges’ KSM Project to the southwest.

Three drill holes have intersected the newly discovered gold-dominant PSZ System located approximately 2 kilometers southwest of the Goldstorm Zone. These diamond drill holes targeted a 1.5 kilometer-wide geophysical anomaly (magnetometer high). Tudor Gold has discovered this new thrust-hosted porphyry-style gold-copper-silver bearing system on trend, and approximately 4 km northeast from Seabridges’ Iron Cap Deposit, which is located at the southwestern boundary of the Tudor Claim block.

Furthermore, diamond drilling on the Goldstorm System has successfully expanded the mineralization to the northeast, southwest and southeast as well to depth. The Goldstorm System 300 Horizon has now been traced for 1100 meters along the northeast axis.

Goldstorm Drilling Highlights include:

  • Five diamond drill holes are reported from Goldstorm, all having hit their intended targets with favorable results listed in Table l.
  • The best intercept was from drill hole GS-20-73 on Section 110+00 NE that cut 775.5 metres (29.0m to 804.5 m) averaging 0.932 gpt AuEq containing an enriched portion that averaged 1.506 gpt AuEq over 229.5 meters (519.5m to 749.0 m). This was a southwest offset to drill hole GS-20-57 that averaged 1.40 gpt AuEq over 217.5 meters (544.5 to 762.0 meters) within an overall composite averaging 0.845 gpt AuEq over 973.05m (34.50 to 1007.55 meters). (GS-20-57 was collared on Section 110+00 but deviated drastically to the northeast and the lower portion plotted on Section 111+00 NE leaving a gap in the drill model which GS-20-73 has now filled).
  • A second longer intercept from GS-20-73 includes material that averaged 0.828 gpt AuEq from a 949.5 meter intercept (29.0 to 978.5 meters) but the hole was abandoned at 980 meters due to safety concerns with the drill platform so hole GS-20-73 WAS STOPPED IN MINERALIZATION. However, the results from entire hole composites are extremely consistent between GS-20-57 (0.845 gpt AuEq over 973.05 meters) and GS-20-73 (0.827 gpt AuEq over 949.5 meters).
  • Drill hole GS-20-73 is undercut by GS-20-65; a remarkable 348 meter intercept of 2.120 gpt AuEq within a larger 930 meter intercept of 1.161 gpt AuEq (Press Release July 27th, 2020), which is currently the best intercept on the project to-date.
  • Tudor expanded the CS-600 Zone 100m to the southeast on Section 109+00 NE with a 75 meter intercept averaging 2.150 gpt AuEq in hole GS-20-66.
  • GS-20-67 on Section 114+00 NE deviated drastically to the north thereby extending the length of the northeast axis of the 300 Horizon to 1100 meters. This hole also ended in mineralization with the last 15 meters (1325m to 1340m) averaging 0.905 gpt AuEq within a strong quartz stockwork zone similar to the DS-5 stockwork system found at the bottom of GS-19-47 (243 meters averaging 0.996 gpt AuEq). See Section 114+00 NE attached below.
  • Notable increase to silver grades occurred within GS-20-73. A 78 meter intercept (534.5m to 612.5m) had elevated silver grades averaging 26.3 gpt Ag associated with 1.588 gpt gold.

Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., states: “We are very pleased to have intersected significant gold-copper-silver porphyry-related mineralization within a large magnetic anomaly called Perfectstorm (PSZ). This magnetic anomaly is located along a relatively evenly spaced frequency of large deposits following the Treaty-Sulphuretes Thrust Fault, approximately mid-way between the Iron Cap Deposit to the southwest and our Goldstorm System to the northeast. Results obtained from PS-20-01 and PS-20-02 on Section 89+00 NE demonstrate the consistency within these two drill holes completed off the same drill pad. PS-20-01 intersected 0.594 gpt AuEq over 133.5 meters while PS-20-02 intersected 151 meters of 0.621 gpt AuEq. The third PSZ System drill hole was a 300 meter step-out to the southwest and this hole (PS-20-03) intersected 220.5 meters of 0.402 gpt AuEq on Section 86+00 NE. The results suggest that the system is open to expansion to the southwest and to the northwest. The exploration target area is at least 1.5 kilometers long and 500-800 meters wide. We are very excited to see the results confirming that large mineralized polymetallic systems occur at a predictable frequency along the Sulphuretes-Treaty Thrust Fault belt. We are planning an aggressive diamond drill-hole program for 2021 to further expand the limits of the PSZ System’s potential mineralization, searching for the center of the metal pile as we have successfully done with the Goldstorm System.”

The two tables below provide the complete list of composite results from the eight drill holes reported, as well as the drill hole data including hole location, elevation, depth, dip and azimuth. Perfectstorm Sections 86+00 NE and 89+00 NE with Goldstorm Sections 109+00 NE, 110+00 NE and 114+00 NE are attached below along with corresponding plan maps (also available on the Company’s website).

Why Small Cap Gold Investors Need To Take Notice of Ohio Pension Fund Entering The Gold Market $AMK.ca $AFF.ca $DGO.ca $CDG.ca $LN.ca $LAB.ca $SX.ca $TAJ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:54 AM on Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

Small cap investors should take notice of the following small cap gold exploration companies after the Ohio Police & Fire Pension Fund (OP&F) approved a 5% allocation into gold in a move to diversify its portfolio and hedge against the risk of inflation. This may not sound like much, but it may be the first of many pension funds to follow as they seek to protect their pension assets. The OP&F fund currently holds about $16 billion in assets under management and believe gold will give the portfolio a strong diversifier to its growth-oriented investments as well as provide an effective hedge against inflation

More and more pensions are going to need to protect themselves against rising inflation and the falling value of currencies and 5% from every fund poses an incredible amount of purchasing power for the gold market to sustain.

Rising gold prices boost demand, as witnessed by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway surprising gold investors after buying nearly 21 million shares of Barrick Gold. The first time ever in the funds history.

If the worlds largest funds are finding value in the gold market, small cap investors need to pay attention to the following Agoracom clients poised for success.

American Creek $AMK.ca What Do Gretzky, Silver, and Treaty Creek Have To Do With Each Other and Why Is It Important? Doug Casey and Eric Sprott Explain $TUD.ca $SII.ca $GTT.ca $AFF.ca $SEA.ca $SA $PVG.ca $AOT.ca $ESK.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:21 AM on Monday, August 31st, 2020

This week Rick Rule and Doug Casey had an excellent 2 part interview on Kitco. It was both highly informative and entertaining. I suggest that everyone watch it after you listen to Eric Sprott so I’ve included the Kitco links below for you. In the interview Doug Casey suggests that we all try to follow the advice of Wayne Gretzky which is this “On the ice skating arena, most guys skate to the puck, and that’s a problem because there’s all these big mean guys swinging sticks….skate to where you think the puck is going to be opposed to where all these big means guys swinging sticks are”.

Who can argue with Gretzky given his track record? That’s exactly what Eric Sprott is doing with his investments. He closely follows the silver / gold ratio which is 17.5:1 in the ground. As you can see on the 10 year chart below the market ratio has had dramatic increases over the last decade, and industry experts are saying it is due to silver being more manipulated than gold. In April of this year it reached a peak of 114.77 (a 94 year high) and (for various reasons) is on its way back down.

Sprott has stated that all the data “is screaming” that the market silver / gold ratio will go down to a 15:1 ratio (for many reasons but one is that the silver / gold ratio in production is only 8:1 so there just isn’t enough silver out there to account for all the silver accounts on paper and people are starting to want delivery – a very wise decision).  So like Gretzky, Sprott is looking at where the puck is going to be, or in this case where silver is going to be, and evaluating companies based on where they would be if a 15:1 ratio were to take place.
 
I thought he would start talking about the many high-grade projects out there but instead the very first example he had was Treaty Creek where the silver is just an afterthought!  The first 12 minutes is spent discussing arguments for silver and then Eric explains why Treaty is the first one he mentions would benefit from a dropping silver / gold ratio (11:40 – 13:19).  

As promised, here is the two part interview with Rick Rule and Doug Casey.  I highly suggest you watch it to the end!

American Creek $AMK.ca Begins High-Resolution Magnetic and Lidar Surveys at Past Producing Dunwell Mine Property in Golden Triangle of BC $TUD.ca $SII.ca $GTT.ca $AFF.ca $SEA.ca $SA $PVG.ca $AOT.ca $ESK.ca

  • Dunwell Mine is one of dozens of high-grade gold / silver / lead / zinc occurrences that are primarily associated with the Portland Canal Fissure zone that extends for several kilometers through the property.

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – August 20, 2020) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to report that it has commenced a high-resolution magnetic survey in combination with a LIDAR survey at the company’s 100% owned Dunwell Mine gold and silver property located in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia.

Genesis Aviation Inc. is currently completing a High- Resolution Gradient Magnetometer survey in conjunction with a Three-Dimensional LIDAR survey over the property. This type of magnetic survey is flown by a low altitude helicopter and offers Measured Horizontal and Vertical Gradient data. This makes a significant difference to the magnetic inversion that provides a model at depth. The LIDAR survey being collected over the whole property will allow the past, present and future geological and geophysical programs to be correlated with a much higher degree of accuracy than otherwise possible.

The Dunwell Mine is a high-grade past producing polymetallic mine located just 8 kilometers by road from the shipping town of Stewart BC. The mine itself is one of dozens of high-grade gold / silver / lead / zinc occurrences that are primarily associated with the Portland Canal Fissure zone that extends for several kilometers through the property. The Dunwell Mine project boasts exceptional logistics and a rich mining history with potential for future development. It is located within the Bear River valley which was one of the first areas prospected in the Stewart camp because of its combination of rich veins and easy access due to the low elevation and proximity to town.

Because of the property’s low elevation and heavy rainfall, it is completely covered with a heavy canopy of vegetation with limited exposed bedrock in gullies and stream beds. As no modern exploration techniques or technologies had been conducted on the Dunwell prior to American Creek’s acquisition, careful consideration was given as to the best options that could lead to discovery. This resulted in a decision to proceed with a detailed Magnetic survey in 2020 and an Induced Polarization (IP) survey in the fall of 2019.

Alpha IP was chosen over a conventional IP survey because of its cutting-edge technology in detecting detailed high chargeability / low resistance anomalies in the ground. Specifically, the Alpha IP survey has far greater resolution and depth than standard IP’s and can provide the data in a 3D view. These are critical factors as the Dunwell Mine property contains numerous high-grade veins that are more readily detected using a high-resolution survey. Simcoe Geoscience, who performed the survey, was chosen because of their exceptional experience in this field and the in-depth interpretation they provide. They will also be using their expertise to integrate the new 3D Magnetic Survey results with the existing IP results. Simcoe’s same Alpha IP system continues to achieve success locating high-grade veins at Ascot’s neighboring Silbak-Premier Mine (9km away).

The exploration objectives of the Alpha IP survey were to detect the source of potential high‐grade Au, Ag, Pb, Zn, Cu in quartz and detect quartz breccia veins hosted in thin bedded argillite, siltstone and greywacke of the Middle Jurassic Salmon River Formation (Hazelton Group). The Alpha IP system was used to provide the following benefits:

  • Detect and delineate zones and structures related to the emplacement of sulphide mineralization to depths of up to 400 meters with chargeability and resistivity.
  • Mapping the resistivity and chargeability features related to mineralization, alteration, faults and lithologies.

Thirty-seven anomalous zones were interpreted as significant targets for follow up from surface to ~300m+ depth. Out of thirty-seven anomalous zones, fifteen are considered first priority, sixteen second and six are third priority targets. The anomalous zones consist of strong to moderate chargeability related to associated conductive to resistive zones. These targets have a strong correlation with the Portland Canal Fissure Zone with the strongest targets running along the Dunwell Creek / Portland Canal Fault, the secondary targets running down each side of the primary target, and the tertiary targets running along the western edge of the fissure zone.

CEO and President, Darren Blaney stated: “We are excited about the magnetic and Lidar surveys taking place right now and the further detail they will give us in expanding our understanding of the underground geology when combined with last fall’s Alpha IP.

“We have always thought that the numerous high-grade gold and silver showings associated with the Portland Canal Fissure Zone, that extends for several kilometers down the valley, are related in some meaningful way and may be part of the same geological event. The additional geophysics will greatly add to our understanding of the geology down to 400 meters in depth.

“We are expecting quick turnaround of the new geophysics data which will allow us to commence the Phase II drill program this fall with the advantage and added benefit of utilizing this new information in targeting the drill.”

Property Description and History

The property is located just 7 km east of the Silbak Premier Mine (Ascot Resources), 11 km west of the Red Mountain deposit (Ascot – formally IDM), and only 9 km north of the past producing Porter Idaho silver mine (Strikepoint Gold). Through a series of strategic acquisitions American Creek was able to purchase the past-producing Dunwell Mine as well as several adjoining very prospective properties, combining them into one large land package that encompasses the most promising gold and silver mineral occurrences and historic workings within the Bear River valley. The amalgamated property spans 2,222 hectares covering the majority of the Portland Canal Fissure Zone, an area first prospected in the late 1800’s and hosting some of the earliest producing gold and silver mines in the Stewart area.

The Portland Canal Fissure Zone is the most significant geological feature in the Bear River valley. This zone of faulting and shearing trends north, dips steeply west and hosts a vein system that extends southward for 6.5 kilometres from the Victoria/Dandy occurrence (on Dunwell) in the north, through the Dunwell mine itself, across Glacier Creek to the Ben Bolt occurrence (on Dunwell) in the south. With the recent acquisition of the Glacier Creek Crown Grants (south of Glacier Creek) American Creek now controls 5km of the 6.5km fissure zone which contains numerous high-grade polymetallic mineral occurrences including two past producing mines (Dunwell and Portland Canal).

The Dunwell project is located 8km northeast of Stewart and is road accessible with the Dunwell Mine adit itself located only 2km from Highway 37A and a major power line (both running through the property). Stewart hosts two deep sea ports including ore loading and shipping facilities. Unlike the majority of mineral properties located near Stewart, the Dunwell Mine is located in low mountainous terrain (800 m and lower elevation) with relatively moderate relief. These features allow for potential year-round work which typically isn’t the case for exploration programs conducted in the Stewart region where projects are typically at higher altitude, are accessible only by helicopter, and lack critical infrastructure such as roads and power. The Dunwell Mine project may very well have the best logistics of any project within the Golden Triangle.

The Dunwell Mine is the most significant mineral occurrence within the Portland Canal Fissure Zone. Production at the Dunwell occurred between 1926 and 1941. From historic reports, it appears that a total of 45,657 tonnes averaging 6.63 g/t gold, 223.91 g/t silver, 1.83% lead, 2.43% zinc and 0.056% copper were produced.

In addition to the Dunwell mine itself, the property package also contains over two dozen other high-grade gold and silver occurrences and historic small-scale gold/silver high-grading operations along a north/south trend that correlates to the fissure zone and major faulting. Some examples of the nine areas that actually produced ore are:

  • Ben Ali: 4,500 tons at 21.6 g/t gold
  • Lakeview 60 tons at 4.7 g/t gold, 2,734 g/t silver, and 11.5% lead
  • Victoria 11 tons at 20.15 g/t gold, 775 g/t silver, 25% lead
  • Tyee 8.2 tons at 124.4 g/t gold and 4,478.8 g/t silver
  • George E 12 tons at 13 g/t gold and 3,250 g/t silver, 23.3% lead

Each of these areas were producing during the 1930’s when exploration techniques and technology was very primitive.

The High- Resolution Gradient Magnetometer survey combined with the 3D Alpha IP survey represent the cutting edge in geophysical technology today and are designed to aid with understanding potential correlations between the multiple high-grade surface showings.

The Dunwell Phase II drill program is expected to commence early this fall once the data and interpretation from the geophysics survey is available.
