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 recently 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.

The 4 Reasons Goldman Sachs Believes Candente Copper is a World Class Company

Candente Copper (TSX: DNT, BVL: DNT) owns 100% of a copper deposit in Peru and has big plans to become a miner.

Candente owns a large, economic, copper ore body in Peru waiting to be mined. Cañariaco Norte is a 100% owned feasibility-stage porphyry copper deposit.

Simply put, it is a mountainous rock body that holds 7.5 billion pounds of copper and has had multiple scientific studies propelling it along the way toward production. Strengthened by Goldman Sachs belief it is one of the top 80 copper deposits yet to be exploited and strategically guided by Australian Iron Ore giant Fortescue’s 19% inside ownership, Candente has the lowest quartile production costs that make it an intriguing project today and a must have for tomorrow.

 Reasons Why Candente Copper is A Top Small Cap Copper Company

1. Goldman Sachs has Canariacao Norte listed as one of the top 80 projects waiting to be developed worldwide and is top 42 in South America. Mining projects take a long time to be developed due to the strict standards required to prove metal content in the ground, which Candente has proven it has tremendous amounts of.

A single, contiguous, open-pit mineable deposit of 7.5B pounds Measured and Indicated and can be mined for 22 years once in production speaks to the stability of the project 

2. Supported Strategically by Fortesque’s 19.9% Ownership 

Fortesque is recognized as a global leader in the mining industry. Fortesque holds 19% Candente and became involved to advance Canariaco further into development. Fortesque committed 1$Million in January 2020 with an eye toward production and is considered a strategic investor, which means they have a long-term timeline for joint exploitation of the asset.

Fortescue is one of the largest global iron ore producers, recognized for its culture, innovation and industry-leading development of world class infrastructure and mining assets in Western Australia. This is truly a partnership which seeks to equally progress Canariaco into development and Candente into production status. The accepted odds for a discovery to find its way into production is about 1 in 1000, and speaks to the sheer difficulty of the exercise.

Candente is close to the finish line and Fortesque is there for the final push.

3. Canariaco is in the lowest quartile of production costs

Once in production Canariaco is in the lowest quartile of production costs for projects waiting to be developed Operating costs of US$0.988 per pound of copper

 Canariaco has 7.5Billion pounds of copper measured and indicated capable of generating annual production of 262,000,000lbs of copper, 39,000 oz gold & 911,000 oz silver over initial mine life of 22 yrs(@ 95,000 tpd). A long stable mine life is what attracts quality investors like Fortesque.

Canariaco is a stable, long term investment once it is producing because its output is consistent every year. The risk has been removed from the project.

4. Canariaco is the 1st of 3 projects all in the same area waiting to be discovered.

Candente has the opportunity to make further discoveries through Canariaco South and Quebrada Verde, both within a 5km trend that shares infrastructure. Management believes Canariaco Sur is a mineable deposit and will add tremendous support to shareholders in the future. Quebrada Verde demonstrates the same minerology and potential as both Norte and Sur which and requires future exploitation

Each of these projects will benefit greatly from Canariaco’s development as it will make development even cheaper than Canariaco Norte due to the infrastructure that will be in place, possible pushing Canariaco’s future overall costs even lower.

As China Goes Green, Copper Market Expected to Tighten Further SPONSOR: Candente Copper $DNT.ca $CN.ca $FCX.ca $TECK.ca $FSUGY $PER.ca

The most pessimistic forecasts of copper demand, and pricing, during the worst pandemic in 102 years, have failed to materialize.

From a four-year low in March, when the coronavirus slammed into Europe and North America, the red metal used widely in construction, communications, transportation and energy transmission, has mounted a serious comeback.

As of this writing spot copper is trading at $3.08 per pound, compared to around $2.10/lb in mid-March – a gain of 46%. The spot price has stayed above $3.00 since Oct. 8 – which is remarkable considering the reports of impending economic doom, amid a second wave of covid-19 infections in Europe and North America.

The following analysis by AOTH has copper showing no signs of slowing down; in fact, while the copper market was tight before the pandemic began, we expect it to tighten even further, due to a constellation of factors, starting with China.

The Chinese economy became the first major world economy to return to its pre-virus growth trajectory, when it posted positive numbers in the second quarter. Recent figures from China’s National Bureau of Statistics indicate that third-quarter GDP growth is up 4.9% from a year ago. Between April and June, Q2, the bureau reported a 3.2% rise. The Chinese are well ahead of their trading rivals as they strive to put the pandemic for which they were responsible, behind them.

According to the World Bank and the OECD, the Chinese economy in 2020 will grow 2% – the only G20 country to mark positive economic output this year. Beijing has managed to largely contain the virus in recent months after the pandemic shut down its economy. Commerce and travel have been allowed to resume, which is driving economic growth and fueling demand for copper and other industrial metals, like aluminum and nickel, whose prices are also climbing.

Other reasons for a rising copper price include covid-related restrictions imposed on the copper mining industry, along with speculative interest in the metal due to a weaker US dollar.

Copper output from the world’s top 10 producers declined 3.7% during the second quarter, due to nation-wide lockdowns in Chile, Peru and Mexico.

China’s copper dominance

Chinese growth statistics have always figured prominently in copper price forecasts – no surprise considering that China is responsible for just under half of the world’s production of copper and copper alloys semis, the industry term for first-stage products made from refined copper.

The Asian superpower is also the largest importer of unwrought copper, along with copper ores and concentrates.

Its manufacturing sector back on track, China’s copper imports rose sharply over the past four months; in September, the country imported 62% more copper than the same month in 2019. Unwrought copper imports of 4.9 million tonnes during the first nine months of the year, were up 41% from the same period last year.

According to Reuters columnist Clyde Russell, China has been vacuuming up copper, boosting the price at a time when demand elsewhere in the world was looking sickly as the virus spread.

Why is China importing so much copper? Russell claims the buying spree is being driven by Beijing’s stimulus spending following the national lockdown during the first four months of the year. But he also says it is likely that substantial volumes of copper are flowing into stockpiles, either strategic or commercial.

We agree, and have been writing quite a bit about this lately.

Obviously we can’t say for sure, given China’s opaque statistics, but we suggest a good chunk of the raw materials are going into bulking up the Chinese Military, in particular its navy patrolling the South China Sea. In other words, China is preparing for war.

The mining industry’s experience of China locking up the world’s mineral resources testifies to how far the Chinese will go to ensure their ever-growing demand for mined commodities is met.

Locking up supply

While iron ore ad copper were the hot targets of overseas acquisitions by Chinese firms as they sought to feed an economy that up until 2015 was growing at double digits, the Chinese have also gone after gold, nickel, tin and coking coal. More recently the most desired metals are those that feed into the global shift from fossil fuels to the electrification of vehicles. This has meant a hunt for lithium, cobalt, graphite, copper and rare earths – metals that are used in electric vehicles, of which China has become the world’s leading manufacturer. EVs use a lot of copper, four times as much as a regular vehicle, and China hasn’t been shy about boosting its copper reserves to meet expected demand.

Two large Peruvian copper mines are owned by Chinese companies. Chinese state-run Chinalco owns the Toromocho copper mine, while the La Bambas mine is a joint venture between operator MMG (62.5%), a subsidiary of Guoxin International Investment Co. Ltd (22.5%) and CITIC Metal Co. Ltd (15%). The Chinese-backed Mirador mine in Ecuador opened in 2019.

Most of the metal produced under these off-take agreements will NEVER come to the market anyplace other than in China. Those metals that do, can have their supply shut down any time the Chinese want.

In Brazil, Chinese banks and investment groups have committed $15 billion of a $20b China-Brazil Fund, launched in 2016 to finance infrastructure projects.

The Made in China 2025 initiative, which aims to make China’s copper industry more efficient, is expected to grow Chinese copper demand by an additional 232,000 tonnes by 2025. This isn’t counting the need for more copper for railways, electric vehicles, car motors and power transformers.

  • 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.

Attached are Sections 109+00 NE, 112+50 NE, 114+00 NE and 115+50 NE showing holes traces with gold and copper histogram results and a Plan Map showing the drill hole and section locations.

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.

Copper Price Rallies as Chinese Scrap Shipments Sink by 50% SPONSOR: Candente Copper $DNT.ca $CN.ca $FCX.ca $TECK.ca $FMG.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:47 AM on Friday, September 18th, 2020

Copper prices rallied on Friday after predictions that Chinese imports of scrap metal are likely to fall by half, forcing the country to up cargoes of concentrate and unwrought copper, which are already at record levels.

Copper for delivery in December trading in New York exchanged hands for $3.0525 per pound ($6,730 a tonne) in midday trade, up 1.8% from yesterday’s settlement and not far off two-year highs struck at the beginning of the month.

China consumes more copper than the rest of the world combined and Reuters reports the China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association told a conference on Friday that imports of secondary copper could halve in 2020, from just under 1.5 million tonnes last year.

The country wants to eliminate imports of what it deems “foreign waste” and has implemented a strict quota system. 

In a recent research report, Roskill called scrap the most vulnerable link in the global supply chain and said Chinese importers’ attempts at diversification by buying more ingot and copper granules have only had limited success, forcing importers to buy cathode from the rest of the world, where metal demand has slumped.

Jonathan Barnes, associate consultant for copper at the London-based metal and minerals researcher, noted regulations set for June that would have classified copper scrap as a “renewable resource” to enable refiners to skirt regulations have been delayed indefinitely. 

Barnes says on top of that several major shipping lines are refusing to transport scrap, fearing liability for return shipment if containerized cargoes are rejected by Chinese customs.  

Concentrate hard to come by 

Barnes says while the effects of covid-19 could decrease world consumption of the metal by 3%–4% this year, the drop in mine output and scrap flows has been greater.

Customs data show China’s unwrought copper imports (anodes and cathodes) in August declined to 668,486 tonnes from July’s record haul of 762,211 tonnes, but still up 65% from August last year.

Year to date imports now total 4.27m tonnes, up 38% from 2019 and on track to easily beat 2018’s annual record of 5.3m tonnes. 

At the same time, concentrate supplies from South America, where China sources the bulk of its mined copper, have been disrupted due to covid. 

August imports of copper concentrate fell by more than 12% from the same month last year to 1.59m tonnes on lingering supply disruptions from Peru and Chile.

The Treaty Creek Project is a Joint Venture with Tudor Gold, who owns 3/5th and acts as the 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”.
 
We also recommend you forwarding this to friends, family, or anyone else you may know that has an interest in the gold mining sector.

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

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.
