  • B.C.’s Golden Triangle proven to host one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet Wwith over 83.7million ounces gold, 627.8 million ounces silver and 38.8 billion pounds copper so far (all categories)
  • That’s just in its southern half which also hosts the Brucejack Mine (Pretivm) which started its production of 8.1 million ounces @ 16.1g/t

B.C.’s Golden Triangle is fast becoming one the richest areas of discovery in the world. The Crown Jewel of the Golden Triangle is a hydrothermal system (one of the seven largest in the world) that has proven to host one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet with over 83.7million ounces gold, 627.8 million ounces silver and 38.8 billion pounds copper so far (all categories). That’s just in its southern half which also hosts the Brucejack Mine (Pretivm) which started its production of 8.1 million ounces @ 16.1g/t in May 2017 and the KSM (Seabridge) which contains the largest undeveloped gold deposit in the world by reserves – 38.8 million ounces gold with 10.2 billion pounds of copper.

American Creek’s Treaty Creek property covers the northern half of the hydrothermal system; and the geology,geophysics, and exploration results all indicate the potential to host a continuation of the mineralization already proven the southern half.

Yesterday Seabridge Gold announced the first round of diamond drill assays from their 2017 KSM exploration which were the best drill results they’ve had yet. How do these results have the potential to not only be a game-changer for the KSM, but for the extensive drill program currently on the Treaty Creek property?

  • Commissioned a comprehensive Magnetotelluric survey on the Treaty Creek Property
  • Located immediately adjacent to Seabridge Gold’s KSM project in the “Golden Triangle” of NW British Columbia 75km north of Stewart.

CARDSTON, ALBERTA–(Aug. 3, 2016) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AMK) (“American Creek”) is pleased to report that its JV partner, Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TUD) (“Tudor”) has commissioned a comprehensive Magnetotelluric survey (“MT survey”) on the Treaty Creek Property located immediately adjacent to Seabridge Gold’s KSM project in the “Golden Triangle” of NW British Columbia 75km north of Stewart.

American Creek and Tudor recently entered into a joint venture agreement with Tudor holding a 60% interest and American Creek and Teuton Resources Corp. each holding 20% carried interests in the project. Tudor is the operator.

The survey, already in progress, is being run by Simcoe Geoscience Ltd. using the same geophysicist that designed, ran, and interpreted MT surveys on the adjacent KSM and Brucejack projects owned by Seabridge Gold and Pretivm Resources respectively. The program is also using the same equipment and technology that continues to be used with great success on the adjoining properties.

MT surveys, a geophysical technique that measures fluctuations in naturally-occurring electrical and magnetic fields, have been used extensively by Seabridge and Pretivm to assist them in discovering and developing new deposits. The Deep Kerr, Lower Iron Cap, Mitchell at Depth, and extensions of Deep Kerr deposits are some of the discoveries within Seabridge’s KSM project where MT technology was utilized in discovering and in developing drill targets for these core zones. Pretivm Resources, whose deposits (Snowfield/Brucejack/Valley of the Kings) are adjacent to the KSM, has also had great success using MT technology in the discovery and development of their deposits. This confirms the reliability and accuracy of MT technology within the large hydrothermal system encompassing the KSM, Snowfield/Brucejack, and Treaty Creek projects. This hydrothermal system is one of the largest in the world with the southern half being shared by Pretivm’s deposits on the east and Seabridge’s deposits on the west. The northern half of the system extends through the Treaty Creek property.

In 2011, Seabridge commissioned a single line array MT survey through the Treaty Creek property to cover their proposed tunnel route as part of their KSM development plan. The exploration objective was to detect porphyry-rich mineralization and/or associated alteration zones to depth and to establish an understanding of the geological system and fluid pathways to great depth within the KSM survey area. The survey was successful in discovering potential porphyry-rich mineralization and/or associated alteration zones to depth as it revealed a large conductive body at depth which extends upward to the surface between MT sites 214 and 216. This area contains gossanous outcrops along with surface mineralization and also includes the previously explored Orpiment zone. The survey also shows a more prominent feeder extending over 3km from the large conductive body at depth. This feeder is approximately 750m wide and extends to the location of the Copper Belle zone where another large conductive body (less than 200ohm-m) appears on the survey starting between MT sites 208 and 209. The northeast tip of Copper Belle, a bulk-tonnage type gold-copper-molybdenum porphyry, appears to be located at the northeast tip of this low resistive anomaly. The drilling that American Creek conducted in 2007 and 2009 (prior to the MT survey) at Copper Belle was primarily between MT sites 209 and 210 and therefore did not intersect the MT anomaly, however hole CB-14 (the closest hole to the anomaly) carried 0.8g/t gold over 241m and ended in mineralization.

The MT anomalies on the Treaty Creek property have a direct correlation with magnetic highs. A large magnetic anomaly starts precisely where the MT anomaly near Copper Belle begins. Both the MT survey, and a previously conducted Mag survey on Treaty Creek, independently suggest the possibility of a metallic deposit in porphyry form. When the two correlate with each other so perfectly it is referred to as a “strong contact”. The extent of the MT anomaly will remain unknown until the current MT survey is complete, but the magnetic high directly associated with it covers approximately nine square kilometers.

Simcoe Geoscience Ltd. is currently running an extensive 3D survey that covers all the areas of known mineralization on the Treaty Creek property. This will reveal the extent of the existing MT anomalies in far greater detail, and potentially reveal new anomalies, giving Tudor the same type of insights that have contributed to the discoveries on the Seabridge and Pretivm properties within the same hydrothermal system.

Tudor is also planning to commence drilling at Treaty Creek within the next week.

Darren Blaney, American Creek’s President & CEO, stated: “We are very much looking forward to the advancement of the Treaty Creek project and are pleased that Tudor is now on the property and that work is commencing. The exact same MT survey technology presently being employed by Tudor at Treaty has been the key to the recent world class discoveries that have been made by both Seabridge and Pretivm to our south. Our shareholders have been anticipating this event for quite some time and now their patience and support will be rewarded.”

Exceptional Properties

Electrum Gold-Silver Property, British Columbia – 100% owned

The Electrum property has a rich history with some of the highest grade hand-mined ore mined in North America combined with excellent logistics. The property is located directly between two high-grad vein gold/silver mines; the past producing Silbak Premier mine and Pretiums high-grade Brucejack mine (production in 2017).All three lie within the Iskut mineral district (a particularly prolific part of the Canadian Cordillera) with numerous geological similarities between them.

The Electrum Property holds significant potential to attract mining companies when considering its high-grade nature combined with the exceptional logistics in place.

  • Located in the prolific Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia, an area encompassing mineral rich belts that host more than 43 past producing mines including Eskay Creek, Silbak Premier, Granduc and Big Missouri.It is a hotbed of activity with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.
  • Located in a particularly rich valley with 4 past producing commercial mines and a 5th in the adjacent valley.
  • Includes the historic East Gold Mine that had intermittent small-scale production of approximately 46 tonnes of ore with grades averaging 1,661 grams of gold per tonne and 2,596 grams of silver per tone (roughly 50oz gold with 75oz silver).
  • Mineralization is believed to be very similar to the silver-gold-base metal veins responsible for the precious metal mineralization found in the Silbak Premier Mine and the Big Missouri mines (located in same extended valley).
  • Pretiums Brucejack Summary Report (for exploration) compares itself geologically to the Silbak Premier mine as well.
  • Exceptional gold and silver assays including 440 g/t gold with 400 g/t silver over 0.52m, with numerous silver intervals of 583g/t, 501 g/t, 420 g/t, 384 g/t in core, and surface samples of 80.96 g/t gold with 80,818 g/t silver, 694 g/t gold with 550 g/t silver, 54.77 g/t gold with 14,903 g/t silver, 615 g/t gold with 616 g/t silver.
  • A very successful program was run in 2015 wherein:
    • A new approach focusing on high-grade was employed very successfully
    • A new zone of gold / silver mineralization was discovered
    • A better understanding of the property geology was obtained
    • Surface samples from the structure averages 27,092 gm/tonne silver and 248 gm/tonne gold



  • The program proved the Electrum Property has multiple high-grade gold-silver epithermal breccia vein systems and gave us a better understating of their sequencing.
  • Excellent logistics including road access, power located 2 km away and a bulk tonnage shipping port and supportive mining town located just40 km away in a mining friendly jurisdiction.

The high-grade ELECTRUM PROPERTY recently had a program run on it. CLICK HERE for the Electrum presentation and HERE for the 2015 drill program presentation. The highly mineralized gossans on the Electrum are shown in the image at the top of this page.

2015 Drill Program Presentation

Treaty Creek Gold-Copper Property, British Columbia – 51% Joint Venture

Treaty Creek Property


Treaty Creek is located in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle; one of the richest areas of mineralization in the world with one new mine having come online in 2015 (Imperial Mines Red Chris) and another scheduled for 2017 (Pretium Brucejack) and at least three more world-class mining projects headed toward production.

Mineralization in the Treaty Creek claims area lies within the same broad hydrothermal system that generated the several deposits on the Seabridge Gold KSM and the Pretivm Brucejack properties that lie immediately southwest of the Treaty Creek claims. So far over 130 million ounces of gold, 800 million ounces of silver and 20 billion pounds of copper (all categories included), representing one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet, have been delineated within the geological system shared by KSM, Brucejack, and Treaty Creek.

Seabridge Gold’s KSM is the world’s largest undeveloped gold/silver project by reserves while Pretium’s Brucejack is the highest grading undeveloped large-scale gold project in the world.KSM has just past the environmental and permitting stage while the Brucejack is in construction phase.
Treaty Creek is part of the same large hydrothermal system as it’s neighbours, hosts the same bedrock geology as its neighbours, the same magneto-telluric (MT) anomalies that proved to be large deposits on the neighbours claims, the same major fault system (Sulphurets) that is responsible for KSM’s deposits, and initial exploration and drilling show similar results to initial drilling on KSM.

The Treaty Creek property is in a strategic location as it’s included in Seabridge’s plan for the KSM to go into production. Seabridge has proposed twin tunnels that would take the KSM ore through American Creek’s Treaty Creek property to a processing plant and tailings pond.
