  • 100% owned Gold Hill property located in the Boulder Creek drainage, a tributary of the Wildhorse River located east of Fort Steele, British Columbia.
  • Re-logging of the drill core has confirmed that much of the gold within several drill core intersections was in fact not reflected in the initial assay results.
  • Hole NS18-01 contained 66.4 g/t gold over 0.2 meters (true width unknown)

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – October 23, 2019) –  American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“American Creek”) reports that further work is being conducted related to the drill core from the phase one drill program conducted in 2018 on its 100% owned Gold Hill property located in the Boulder Creek drainage, a tributary of the Wildhorse River located east of Fort Steele, British Columbia.

The preliminary program included four diamond drill holes on two sections totaling 2,087 meters of drilling. Nine hundred and twenty-nine (929) drill core samples were analyzed and assay results were reported on March 15, 2019. While management was pleased and very encouraged by the results as there were multiple gold intersections in all 4 preliminary drill holes, it was suspected that the initial assay results did not accurately reflect the amount of gold within the core and may have in fact missed much of the gold due to “nugget effect” and the coarse nature of the gold.

Re-logging of the drill core has now been concluded and this effort, along with further recent prospecting on the property, has confirmed that much of the gold within several drill core intersections was in fact not reflected in the initial assay results. During re-logging of the core visible gold was discovered in quartz veins in at least four new locations where assays indicated only trace or very low grade gold values.

As a first step, several samples have been selected for re-assay which will include screening for metallics in an effort to mitigate against and eliminate the “nugget effect” and get a more accurate assay as to actual gold present. Additional assay results, findings and conclusions will be reported in due course.

2018 Drill Program

The 2018 drill program was conducted to test a Cretaceous age swarm of syenite porphyry dykes intruded into lower and middle Cambrian sediments. Four holes on two sections were drilled (see map below) This is the first time that this package of rocks has ever been drilled.

A high-grade intersection in hole NS18-01 contained 66.4 g/t gold over 0.2 meters (true width unknown). This intersection correlates with prior historic gold values obtained in the area. Car samples and face samples from a drift (small tunnel) driven partially along the hanging wall of a syenite porphyry dyke in 1937 were assayed over a width of 1.5 feet (~0.5m). The car samples averaged 0.43 oz. Au per ton (13.4 g/t), 0.48 oz. (14.9g/t) Ag per ton and 2.3% Pb per ton over 40 feet (12.2m). The face samples along 22 feet (6.7m) averaged at 2.4 oz. Au per ton (74.6 g/t) 2.17 oz. (67.5 g/t) Ag per ton and 5.51% Pb.

About the Gold Hill Project

The Gold Hill property covers approximately 836 hectares and is located along the eastern edge of the Kimberly Gold Trend. The property is road accessible by paved highway to Fort Steele and then by main logging roads to (and through) the property. Driving time from Cranbrook to the center of the property is less than one hour.

The property contains a significant portion of the Boulder Creek drainage, a tributary of the Wild Horse River which is considered to be one of the greatest placer gold rivers in the entire province. Gold rushes have taken place there since the 1860’s that have yielded over 48 tonnes of reported gold, making it Canada’s 4th largest placer producer. The majority of the gold recovered from the Wild Horse was located along a 6 km stretch between Boulder Creek (upstream) and Brewery Creek (downstream). From the point where Boulder Creek enters the Wild Horse River for a distance of 6 kilometers downstream, a minimum of 1.5 million ounces (45,655,215 grams) of placer gold was recovered between 1864 and the 1930’s. In addition, an undetermined amount of placer gold was sold in the United States during this period but no records of the amount are available. The Boulder Creek drainage is the logical source of the placer gold recovered from the Wildhorse River below.

Early efforts by prospectors to locate the source of the Wild Horse placer gold led explorers up Boulder Creek to what is now called the Gold Hill property. Although lode gold was first found in the area by prospectors in the late 1800’s, the Gold Hill property has not been the subject of any systematic modern exploration and prior to this program, the property has never been drill tested.

There are two main highly prospective targets on the property:

1. The Midas / Gold Hill prospect which is situated on the southern part of the property. The Midas is in an area of steep topography and is structurally controlled.

2. The Big Chief prospect which is situated on the northern portion of the property. The Big Chief is located on an area of moderate relief and is formed by hydrothermal activity from intruded syenite dikes of Cretaceous age.

The property is nominally divided into north and south portions by Boulder Creek which flows westerly through the property. Phase 1 of the exploration program focused solely on a portion of the Big Chief prospect. The highly prospective area of the property situated south of Boulder Creek was not explored during 2018. This southern area, which includes high grade gold values in grab samples including 25.14 g/t from the Guggenheim showing, will be included in future phases of exploration.

Total Metal Discussion

Gold values, as tested by initial ICP analysis, ranged from slightly less than 0.5 g/t to 5.68 g/t. With reference to sample 043174 in hole NS18-01, where the initial analysis placed gold at >30,000 ppb (30.0 g/t), total metal analysis of the same sample returned a value of 66.4 g/t. To date, this is the only sample that has been analyzed for total metal. It was originally selected because of the proximal galena and visible gold.

Historical work on the property has noted the presence of metallic gold in samples that is not detected by conventional ICP analysis. A skilled, well trained and experienced Prospector discusses this phenom in Assessment Report 27,173 (Dec. 29, 2004). Again, in AR 34,920, (July 2015) a P. Geo. explained the presence of metallic gold. The following is a direct quote from AR 34,920 by the highly experienced P. Geo. who mapped the property: “work by the original prospectors and miners on the property from 1898 to 1957 did a good job of exposing gold-bearing structures and the related sulphides and gangue minerals. This work demonstrated the course nature of the gold which is commonly visible to the naked eye.”

Darren Blaney, CEO of American Creek stated: “This recent work has confirmed our suspicions that much of the high grade gold in the drill core was missed by the initial assays. While it will be challenging to determine the exact amount of gold we have in the core, we welcome the problem as it means we have successfully discovered multiple intersections of high grade visible, coarse gold in quartz veins in our preliminary phase one program. A further significant step in unravelling the mystery of the potential source of the large quantity of Wild Horse river placer gold collected downstream.”

American Creek’s $AMK.ca Goldstorm Deposit A Rare Opportunity for Investors Who Missed Pretium’s Brucejack Discovery $PVG.ca $SII.ca $SA $SKE.ca $TUD.ca $SPMT.ca $GTT.ca $III.ca $GGI.ca $SEA.ca $AFF.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:39 PM on Monday, October 7th, 2019

Pretium helped define the Golden Triangle with the discovery of high grade gold at Brucejack. Drilling success at American Creek’s Treaty Creek property just north of Pretium is demonstrating the opportunity for a second chance for those that missed out on Brucejack. Aiming to become a peer through sheer force of tonnage, American Creeks JV partner Tudor Gold is returning intercepts that are close to a mile in length, with 0.589 g/t Au over 1081.5m, including an upper interval of 0.828 g/t Au over 301.5m and a lower interval of 0.930 g/t Au over 207m that also demonstrated copper values before exceeding the length of the drill capabilities. Other holes include 0.725 g/t gold over 838.5m, 0.683g/t gold over 780m, and 0.98 g/t gold over 563m.

An equal measure of thanks should also be directed toward Ken Konklin, who made the discovery at at Brucejack, and is now Exploration Manager at Treaty Creek. He came out of retirement after putting the $3 billion Brucejack mine into place because he believes that Treaty Creek holds more potential than what’s he’s already accomplished. He has said that developing the Brucejack mine was a huge achievement but Treaty Creek is going to be his legacy: ” The Goldstorm System shows no signs of weakening to the northeast and several more drill holes will be needed to find the length and depth of this huge gold system. Not only does the Goldstorm Zone remain open at depth and along strike, we are now seeing base-metal associations possibly as part of a zonation within the metal system.”

Treaty Creek:

  • Part of the same Sulphurets Hydrothermal System that contains a mind boggling 188M oz gold, 1.2B oz silver and 55B lbs of copper (all categories) to date ( P&P reserves of 47M oz Au, 214M oz Ag, and 10B lbs Cu)
  • Same trend – deposits occur about every 2-3 km going north with gold grades increasing as the system extends northward – The Goldstorm zone on Treaty Creek is the most northerly deposit to date
  • Huge logistical advantages by being on the right side of the mountain with direct access to power and highway
  • Potential open pit design requiring a fraction of the capital cost with a shorter payback period.
  • At the discovery stage of the mining life-cycle where biggest gains are typically made

 Large deposits are found near the red “discovery line” and the Sulphurets fault

Has already increased over 300% since spring and yet only the 2 sets of assays have been released. Based on the geology, geophysics, extended strike length and seemingly endless depth, it looks as though things have just started for American Creek.  A major drill program is presently being conducted at Treaty Creek by JV partner and operator Tudor Gold. There are now two drills working on the Goldstorm zone. The Treaty Creek Project is a Joint Venture with Tudor Gold owning 60% and acting as operator, with American Creek holding a 20% interest in the project. American Creek is fully carried until such time as a Production Notice is issued. Until such time, Tudor is required to fund all exploration and development costs while American Creek has a “free ride”.

  • Primary exploration target within Treaty Creek is the Goldstorm system.
  • The Goldstorm zone is located five kilometers northeast of Seabridge’s Iron Cap Deposit.
  • The Goldstorm mineralized body can be traced for at least 500 meters along strike.
  • 20 diamond drill holes totaling 14,000 meters of drilling are planned

Cardston, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – May 3, 2019) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to announce that JV partner Tudor Gold (“Tudor”) has announced the 2019 exploration plans for its flagship property, the Treaty Creek project located in the Golden Triangle of NW British Columbia.

The primary exploration target within Treaty Creek is the Goldstorm system. From the southwest corner of the Treaty Creek claims, which are bordering Seabridge’s claims, the Sulphurets Thrust Fault leads from Seabridge’s Iron Cap Deposit to Tudor’s Goldstorm system. This regional thrust fault sharply defines the hanging wall contact of both the Iron Cap Deposit and the Goldstorm zone. The Goldstorm zone is located five kilometers northeast of Seabridge’s Iron Cap Deposit.

The Goldstorm mineralized body can be traced for at least 500 meters along strike. The gold mineralization appears to be confined to the northwest by what appears to be the Sulphurets Thrust Fault, however gold mineralization remains open in all other directions and is open to depth as well.

Ken Konkin, P.Geo. Tudor’s Exploration Manager, provided details on Tudor’s exploration plans and objectives for Treaty Creek:

“For the 2019 exploration season we have planned 20 diamond drill holes totaling 14,000 meters of drilling, subject to the Company having sufficient cash resources to fund the ongoing program. Tudor Gold plans to use two diamond drill rigs. The first phase of drilling will include 3,600 meters of drilling with five planned drill holes. The goal is to trace-out the gold mineralization to the footwall contact and to continue drilling to extend the zone to the northeast 200 meters beyond drill hole CB18-39 (0.981 gpt Au over 563.8m) (See news release of November 26, 2018). The gold system appears to be at least 300 meters wide and at least 700 meters deep, however the strongest mineralized horizons occur near surface in the uppermost parts of the mineralized body. In order to fast-track the exploration process, step-out drilling along strike is proposed in 200 meter sections. We believe that this approach is the most efficient way to outline the size and shape of the target.”

Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor stated: “We are fortunate to have someone with such vast geological experience as Ken Konkin as Tudor Gold’s Exploration Manager. Our management team is very confident with Ken’s abilities and he will personally manage all aspects of the drill program. His preliminary work has been outstanding in defining and prioritizing drill targets.”

Darren Blaney, CEO of American Creek stated: “The much anticipated 2019 exploration program at Treaty Creek is rapidly approaching. We are very optimistic that the proposed expanded drilling program building on that spectacular last hole from 2018, CB18-39 will continue to show extensive gold mineralization. We have the utmost confidence in Mr. Konkin’s expertise and ability as his amazing track record speaks for itself.”
