  • Identified new high-priority exploration target for 2018 on the Treaty Creek Property
  • Recent news from Seabridge Gold prompted Tudor to schedule the Sulphurets Thrust Fault Convergence Area as a priority exploration target

Cardston, Alberta–(March 2, 2018) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that JV partner Tudor Gold (“Tudor”) has identified a new high-priority exploration target for 2018 on the Treaty Creek Property. Recent news from Seabridge Gold on the improving gold grades and growing size of their Iron Cap Deep discovery, combined with data from Tudor’s EM, Mag & MT geophysical surveys, has prompted Tudor to schedule the Sulphurets Thrust Fault Convergence Area as a priority exploration target for 2018.

Proposed Exploration Plans for 2018

Copper Belle Zone

The Copper Belle zone will remain a top priority as Tudor continues step-out drilling to the NE where gold grades over long intercepts have been improving. This drilling will provide the geo-data required to build out Tudor’s preliminary resource estimate.

GR2 (including HC & RR), Orpiment, Konkin and AW Zones

Field geologists will continue surface exploration on these secondary targets with mapping, sampling and geochem analysis of the Konkin zone with 1.2m of 870 g/t gold, and the AW zone where float specimens ran up to 255 g/t gold. The Konkin and AW zones are located between the Copper Belle, Iron Cap and Sulphurets Dome. Detailed plans will be announced once finalized.

Sulphurets Thrust Fault Convergence Area

A prominent EM anomaly is located on the northeast side of the Sulphurets Dome between the Brucejack, Sulphurets and Iron Cap thrust faults. The 23 km Sulphurets Fault hosts the Kerr, Deep Kerr, Sulphurets, Mitchell, Snowfields, Iron Cap and Iron Cap Deep deposits. The Brucejack Fault hosts Pretium’s Valley of the Kings Mine and converges with the Sulphurets Thrust Fault inside the Treaty Creek Property.

Below, is a B.C. government map with ‘fault overlay’ that clearly shows the numerous faults in the Sulphurets Convergence Area. This is part of the Sulphurets Hydrothermal System which is considered to be one of the seven largest in the world, hosting one of the greatest concentrations of metal value on the planet: including the largest undeveloped gold/copper deposits (Seabridge’s KSM/Iron Cap) in the world by reserves containing 38.8 million ounces gold and 10.2 billion lbs copper. The northern half of this Sulphurets Hydrothermal System is inside the Treaty Creek Property. The geology, geophysics, fault systems and Jurassic/Triassic contact support the potential for additional discoveries within this hydrothermal system as stated in independent reports by respected geologists: Alldrick, 1988; Sillitoe, 2010; Savell, 2012; Kruchkowski, 2014; Alldrick, 2014; Nelson/Kyba, 2014.

Measured as a linear surface track, 52% of the thrust faults comprising the Sulphurets Hydrothermal System are within the Treaty Creek boundary as shown by the converging fault systems in the map below. The Sulphurets Thrust Fault in this area also divides the Triassic Stuhini rock group from the Jurassic Hazelton rock group (southeast side of the fault). This Triassic/Jurassic contact is also known as the Kyba Red Line, based on the seminal government research report co-authored by JoAnne Nelson and Jeff Kyba in 2014.

On the map below, in the lower left hand corner, you can see an anomaly that is cut-off at the limits of the EM survey adjacent to Seabridge’s Iron Cap Deep high-grade gold deposit. A similar anomaly is located at the right-center of the map northeast side of the Sulphurets Dome.

The exploration concept Tudor is working on for the Sulphurets Dome area is based on the following observations:

  • mineralization is associated with the Sulphurets Fault hanging wall
  • deposit discovery potential will continue along Sulphurets Fault
  • the Sulphurets Fault is coincident to the Kyba Red Line
  • mineralization grade is improving as the Sulphurets Fault moves towards Treaty Creek: “Drilling at Iron Cap confirms major extension of deposit with some of the best grades to date at KSM” (Seabridge Gold news release November 9, 2017)

TREATY CREEK JV PROJECT FINALLY IN THE SPOTLIGHT?

  • BC’s “Golden Triangle” has just experienced its greatest year of mineral exploration in the last decade
  • All indicators are showing that the upcoming 2018 season promises to be far more significant, especially for the Treaty Creek Project and adjoining neighbours

February 15, 2018  – AMERICAN CREEK RESOURCES  TSX-V: AMK

BC’s “Golden Triangle” has just experienced its greatest year of mineral exploration in the last decade. All indicators are showing that the upcoming 2018 season promises to be far more significant, especially for the Treaty Creek Project and adjoining neighbours.

On January 31, 2018 Seabridge stated that the size and grade of their Lower Iron Cap zone (located approximately 600m west of the Treaty Creek property boundary) is so significant that it has the ability to reduce initial capital expenditures and increase initial higher-grade feed for a KSM mine.  This has the potential to dramatically improve the feasibility and to rapidly accelerate the development of the KSM project.

http://seabridgegold.net/News/Article/703/seabridge-gold%27s-growing-iron-cap-deposit-could-offer-promising-alternative-development-approach-for-ksm-project

On February 13, 2018 Seabridge released a new updated resource calculation on the Iron Cap (and Lower Iron Cap zone) of a staggering 25 million ounces gold, 10 billion pounds copper and 170 million ounces silver, all categories included!

http://seabridgegold.net/News/Article/705/seabridge-gold-increases-estimated-gold-copper-resource

This appears to be THE catalyst in advancing the KSM project as analysts recently stated:

“We believe a number of top-tier base metal and gold miners are lining up to offer JV terms to Seabridge on KSM. Based on management commentary, we are pushing this event to April/May next year (2018), from our previous estimate of exit 2017”.

https://www.streetwisereports.com/article/2017/12/07/two-100-owned-projects-have-analysts-talking-about-a-possible-jv-partnership-offer.html

Seabridge moving towards production has very positive implications for Treaty Creek as Seabridge’s feasibility study includes building roads from Highway 37 to within a couple kilometers of the Copper Belle gold zone on Treaty Creek. In order to actually get any gold out of their project, Seabridge has also proposed twin access tunnels to be constructed through the Treaty Creek property. The proposed tunnel route passes through the area in which the Copper Belle and GR2 discoveries are being drilled.

On February 13, 2018 Tudor Gold stated their intention to dramatically increase the scale of the drill program on the Copper Belle zone taking it from 27 holes in 2017 to 50-60 holes this year! Given this increase, the tremendous success of the 2017 drill program, and the maiden resource calculation scheduled to come out shortly, the 2018 Treaty Creek program has the potential to be one of the most significant developments in the Golden Triangle.

Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor Gold recently commented on the project. He stated: “As we analyze Treaty Creek from an overview perspective we find a very compelling image:   Our discoveries, as expected, are closely related to the now-famous “Red Line” (Triassic/Jurassic contact), as predicted in the seminal research report by British Columbia government geologists Kyba and Nelson.  The Sulphurets Fault (coincident with the Red Line), weaves its way for over 20 kms from the southern end where the Kerr, Kerr Deep and Valley of the Kings deposits are located, winding its way northward through the Sulphurets, Mitchell, Snowfields, Iron Cap and Iron Cap Deep discoveries before crossing into Treaty Creek and up to the Copper Belle and GR2 zones.  As observed in the Kyba/Nelson research report, major discoveries lie generally within 2 kms of the Red Line and that is the case with all these deposits.  Tudor has a 3 km unexplored gap between the Copper Belle discovery and the Seabridge Gold’s Iron Cap deposit, in which our MagnetoTelluric Geophysics survey identifies strong anomalous targets that have not yet been drilled.  Results from Tudor Gold’s drilling in 2017 show that in the Copper Bell zone, gold mineralization is expanding northward and eastward with improving grades, increasing copper and silver credits, not to mention other promising areas within the zone like Hole CB-17-26 which returned 149.1m of 1.78 g/t gold.

This prolific hdyrothermal system which hosts the many gold deposits of Seabridge Gold and Pretium Resources, as well as the nascent gold mineralization currently being drilled on Tudor Gold’s Treaty Creek property, is known as one of the seven largest hydrothermal systems in the world for hosting porphyry-type mineral deposits of gold and copper-gold (Alldrick).  Moreover, Seabridge Gold’s KSM property is currently recognized as hosting the world’s largest undeveloped reserves of copper and gold.  In close proximity to these reserves are Pretium Resources’ very large, porphyry gold Snowfields deposit and its high-grade, Valley of the Kings gold mine, the latter recently having entered into commercial production.  This is an excellent area in which to be looking for another “elephant” and early indications are that mineralization continues onto the Treaty property, right past an arbitrary line called a ‘claim boundary’.”

Tudor Gold has released an updated presentation that summarizes the past 2017 program and highlights the upcoming plans for 2018.  You can view it here:

The exploration season ahead clearly has the potential to be transformational with significant advances being made on both the KSM and the adjoining Treaty Creek Project.

The Treaty Creek Project may finally get the attention and recognition it deserves.

  • Intersected various mineralized zones
  • Most significant was 337.5m of continuous mineralization grading 0.76 g/t gold from 2 to 339.5m depth,
  • Including a higher grade intercept of 124.5m grading 0.98 g/t gold from 53.0 to 177.5m

January 23, 2018                                                                                                                    TSX-V: AMK

Cardston, AB – American Creek Resources Ltd (TSX-V: AMK) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to report on an additional three holes from JV partner Tudor Gold’s (“Tudor”) 2017 drill program on the Copper Belle zone at the Treaty Creek Project located in the Golden Triangle of northwestern British Columbia.

CB-17-27, a step-out hole drilled on the Copper Belle zone, intersected various mineralized zones where the most significant was 337.5m of continuous mineralization grading 0.76 g/t gold from 2 to 339.5m depth, including a higher grade intercept of 124.5m grading 0.98 g/t gold from 53.0 to 177.5m.  Hole CB-17-27 was a 602m hole that was collared adjacent to the west side of the Treaty glacier where ice ablation (glacier melt-back) has exposed new opportunities for exploration access. Hole CB-17-27 is 81m southeast of CB-16-03 that graded 1.11 g/t Au for 58m from 88 to 146m; and 0.97 g/t Au for 122m from 304 to 426m. Hole CB-16-03 was drilled uphill at a higher elevation.  For locations of the other holes in this News Release please see the map.

Drill results for holes CB-17-27, CB-17-28 and CB-17-30 are summarized in the table below:

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “As we analyze Treaty Creek from an overview perspective we find a very compelling image:   Our discoveries, as expected, are closely related to the now-famous “Red Line” (Triassic/Jurassic contact), as predicted in the seminal research report by British Columbia government geologists Kyba and Nelson.  The Sulphurets Fault (coincident with the Red Line), weaves its way for over 20 kms from the southern end where the Kerr, Kerr Deep and Valley of the Kings deposits are located, winding its way northward through the Sulphurets, Mitchell, Snowfields, Iron Cap and Iron Cap Deep discoveries before crossing into Treaty Creek and up to the Copper Belle and GR2 zones.  As observed in the Kyba/Nelson research report, major discoveries lie generally within 2 kms of the Red Line and that is the case with all these deposits.  Tudor has a 3 km unexplored gap between the Copper Belle discovery and the Seabridge Gold’s Iron Cap deposit, in which our MagnetoTelluric Geophysics survey identifies strong anomalous targets that have not yet been drilled.  Results from Tudor Gold’s drilling in 2017 show that in the Copper Bell zone, gold mineralization is expanding northward and eastward with improving grades, increasing copper and silver credits, not to mention other promising areas within the zone like Hole CB-17-26 which returned 149.1m of 1.78 g/t gold.”

“This prolific hdyrothermal system which hosts the many gold deposits of Seabridge Gold and Pretium Resources, as well as the nascent gold mineralization currently being drilled on Tudor Gold’s Treaty Creek property, is known as one of the seven largest hydrothermal systems in the world for hosting porphyry-type mineral deposits of gold and copper-gold (Alldrick).  Moreover, Seabridge Gold’s KSM property is currently recognized as hosting the world’s largest undeveloped reserves of copper and gold.  In close proximity to these reserves are Pretium Resources’ very large, porphyry gold Snowfields deposit and its high-grade, Valley of the Kings gold mine, the latter recently having entered into commercial production.  This is an excellent area in which to be looking for another “elephant” and early indications are that mineralization continues onto the Treaty property, right past an arbitrary line called a ‘claim boundary’.”

Darren Blaney, President and CEO of American Creek stated: “At this very preliminary stage of exploration, we have already located significant zones of higher grade gold within the Copper Belle system. Including wide intersections of higher grade close to surface. Those higher grade sections add great promise as to the potential of the project going forward. Further, the MT Survey suggests that this deposit is open in all directions, including towards Seabridge’s Iron Cap discovery located several kilometers to the south.”

“Of major significance is the fact that both the Copper Belle and GR2 are situated on the northern side of the mountains and glacier…the same mountains and glacier that has forced Seabridge Gold to propose an expensive twin tunnel system in order to tunnel under the glacier to access their KSM project gold located to the south. Being advantageously located on the northern side, the Copper Belle and GR2 do not require tunnels for access and are in fact located closer to critical infrastructure…and with much improved logistics.”

The Copper Belle 2017 resource delineation drill program comprised 27 holes to depths below 700m (an estimated 13,722m) and step-outs of 50m where topography permitted.  Results from drill hole CB-17-29 at Copper Belle are still pending. Drill holes were targeted oblique to the northwesterly plunge of the main mineralized zone. A block of delineated mineralization will form the basis for a preliminary resource estimate. All drill holes were down hole surveyed at 25m stations using a Reflex Multi-shot device.

Tudor’s 2016 Magnetotelluric Geophysical Survey program (MT Survey) was effectively utilized as a guide for the drill program. The MT Survey suggests that the mineralization continues to the southwest, toward the Iron Cap deposit of Seabridge Gold Inc. The MT Survey also suggests that the mineralized zone continues in all directions. Tudor’s 2017 drill program was located five kilometers north of the Iron Cap deposit and Tudor intends to step out to the south in its 2018 program to see if it can determine a relationship between the two areas.

Seabridge Gold $SA $SEA.ca Just Announced Excellent Results Next to American Creek’s $AMK.ca Treaty Creek JV Project in B.C.’s Golden Triangle #Gold

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:14 AM on Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Hublogolarge2 copy

  • 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?

American Creek Reports That a Magnetotelluric Survey Has Commenced at Treaty Creek $AMK.ca $SEA.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:10 AM on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016

Hublogolarge2_copy

  • 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.

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.
