Cardston, Alberta

In 2014 a significant geological report (Kyba / Nelson) was published with a new geological understanding concerning the “mega deposits” found in B.C.’s Golden Triangle.  Seabridge Gold just concluded a very successful program on their Iron Cap zone (bordering Treaty Creek) which confirms the report to be correct.  The report predicted that the Iron Cap could be one of “B.C.’s next big deposits” and the recently concluded 2017 exploration program confirms that it is.  The report also predicted that Treaty Creek could be one of “B.C.’s next big deposits” and the 2017 exploration program initial results are confirming that is the case.  Co-author Jeff Kyba has left his position as Regional Geologist for the B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines (Skeena division) and is now assisting in advancing Treaty Creek.

See how the successful Iron Cap program has significant implications for both the KSM and the Treaty Creek projects.

American Creek $AMK.ca Commences Exploration Program on Dunwell #Mine Group of Properties in BC’S Golden Triangle

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:44 AM on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Hublogolarge2 copy

  • Exploration program has commenced on Dunwell Mine group of properties
  • Objectives of the program include locating adits and other historic workings and planning hole locations for a Phase 1 drill program

American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK) (“the Corporation”) is pleased to announce that an exploration program has commenced on the Corporation’s Dunwell Mine group of properties (“Dunwell property”) located in the “Golden Triangle” 7 km northeast of Stewart, BC.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20171017005703/en/

The objectives of the program include locating adits and other historic workings and planning hole locations for a Phase 1 drill program.

The 1,528 hectare Dunwell property includes the past producing high-grade Dunwell Gold Mine which from 1926-1941 produced 45,657 tonnes averaging 6.63 g/t gold, 223.91 g/t silver, 1.83 % lead, 4.01% zinc and .056% copper.

In addition to the Dunwell Mine, there are in excess of 15 other high-grade gold/silver showings located on the property including the Ben Ali (produced 4,500 tons of 21.6 g/t gold), the Tyee (produced 8.2 tonnes of 124.4 g/t gold with 4,478.8 g/t silver), the George E. (produced 12 tons of 13.0 g/t gold with 3,250.0 g/t silver and 23.3% lead) and several others with past production of high-grade gold, silver and base metals.

The Dunwell property is located in the richest portion of the Portland Canal Fissure Zone between the past producing Silbak-Premier gold mine (8km northwest) and the past producing Porter Idaho silver mine (10km south). IDM’s Red Mountain project (at feasibility stage) is located approximately 11km to the east.

Like the past producing Silbak-Premier and Porter Idaho mines that are now in the process of being put back into production in the near future, the Corporation believes that there is also potential to prove up more high-grade gold and silver reserves at the past producing Dunwell Mine along strike and below the level 4 workings.

Darren Blaney, CEO of American Creek, stated the following: “We are excited to have begun work on the recently acquired and amalgamated Dunwell Mine group. Even at this early stage of field work we have already located several high-grade vein systems both on surface and underground. Planning for upcoming drilling, including fine-tuning drill targets, is already underway.

The four recent strategic property deals and subsequent property amalgamation making up the Dunwell project were the culmination of many years of anticipating being able to acquire this strategic and highly prospective ground. It is satisfying to see it all coming together.”

A summary of the Dunwell Mine project can be viewed here: http://americancreek.com/images/pdf/DUNWELL_MINE_GROUP.pdf

See the Dunwell, Bear River, and Silvershot properties on the website.

The Dunwell Mine group of properties is an amalgamation of four recent strategic acquisitions of adjoining properties. The amalgamated property package represents the first time in many years that these prospective properties will be under single ownership. The project is 100% owned by the Corporation.

October 16, 2017 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

CALGARY, Alberta –American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK) (“American Creek”) (“the Corporation”) is very pleased to announce that JV partner and operator Tudor Gold Corp. (“Tudor”) has released results for the first four holes drilled on the Copper Belle zone at the Treaty Creek Project located in BC’s “Golden Triangle” immediately north of, and in the same hydrothermal system as, Seabridge Gold’s KSM project and Pretivm’s Brucejack project.

Tudor reported the following:

Tudor Gold Extends Gold Zone at Treaty Creek to Over One Kilometer

Tudor Gold Corp. (TSX.V: TUD) (Frankfurt: TUC) (the “Company” or “Tudor Gold”) is pleased to report on the results of the first four holes of the Copper Belle zone and on the completion of the resource delineation program for the Copper Belle zone of the Treaty Creek property.

The Copper Belle resource delineation drill program was completed with 27 holes to depths below 700 meters and with step outs of 50 meters where it was possible. Over 13,722 meters of drilling was completed in the Copper Belle zone in 2017.

CB-17-04, the first step-out hole drilled this year on the Copper Belle zone, intersected 176.2 meters of continuous mineralization which returned 0.80 g/T Au from 152.1 to 328.5 meters depth. Hole CB-17-04 was collared 40 meters north of CB-16-03 where topography permitted. Complete results are pending for the remaining 23 holes.

Drill results for the first four Copper Belle holes at Treaty Creek are summarized in the table below:

Click to view drill hole map

Results from subsequent drill holes from the 2017 drill program at Copper Belle are still pending. Drill holes targeted the mineralized zone on Copper Belle and all holes to date have intersected long intervals of mineralization to depth. Drill holes were targeted oblique to the northwesterly plunge of the main mineralized zone. The drill program was designed for approximately 50 meter step-outs across the mineralized zone to create a block of delineated mineralization for a preliminary resource estimate. All drill holes were down hole surveyed at 25 m stations using a Reflex Multi-shot device.

The Copper Belle resource estimate will use data from 27 holes from 2017, three holes from 2016, 17 holes from 2009 and 10 holes from 2007, for a total of 22,970 meters drilled. These drill holes cover an area of approximately 250 meters wide by a kilometer long. Copper Belle zone mineralization is open in all directions and to depth.

The HC drill program consisted of 17 drill holes totalling 5,401 meters that tested the mineralized strata-bound structure for a strike length of 400 meters and 400 meters down dip (still open at depth), and the vein system remains open to the north, south and at depth. The program was designed with a maximum of 50 meter step-outs in the mineralized zone to prepare for a preliminary resource estimate in this area. Assay results are pending for the remaining holes.

The Company is very pleased to report that the magnetotelluric geophysical survey program (“MT Survey”) that was implemented in 2016 has been effectively utilized as a guide for the 2017 drill program. The MT Survey suggests that the mineralization continues to the south, toward the Iron Cap deposit of Seabridge Gold Inc. The MT Survey also suggests that the mineralized zone continues in all directions. Tudor Gold’s 2017 drill program is located five kilometers north of the Iron Cap deposit and the Company intends to step out to the south in its 2018 program to see if it can determine a relationship between the two areas.

Walter Storm, President and CEO, stated: “We are very pleased with these early drill results at Copper Belle because they demonstrate both grade, continuity and the immense size of this pervasively mineralized system. Two major faults control the mineralization which strikes southwest-northeast and dips to the northwest. Our exploration team is effectively following the mineralization using 50 meter step-outs, which will help ensure we have the data density for our planned mineral resource estimates.”

The Qualified Person for the Treaty Creek results in this news release is James McCrea, P.Geo. for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101. He has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this news release.

Darren Blaney, CEO of American Creek, stated the following in response to the Tudor news: “These first holes from Tudor’s Copper Belle resources estimate drill program look very promising. Of significance is hole CB-17-07 which intersected a 369 meter interval of gold mineralization which included a 43.5 meter interval of 1.81 g/t gold with 11.88 g/t silver and 0.142 % copper.

American Creek $AMK.ca Reports That JV Partner Tudor Gold $TUD.ca Has Produced Numerous Intercepts of High Grade #Gold and #Silver in Preliminary Drilling on New HC Zone at Treaty Creek

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 8:26 AM on Friday, September 15th, 2017

Hublogolarge2 copy

  • Tudor Gold Corp. has encountered numerous high grade gold/silver intercepts in preliminary drilling at the new HC zone at the Treaty Creek Project
  • Immediately north of, and in the same hydrothermal system as, Seabridge Gold’s KSM project and Pretivm’s Brucejack project
  • Hosts a precious-metal-rich, polymetallic, volcanogenic massive sulphide and sulphosalt (VHMS) mineralized system

American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK) (“American Creek”) is pleased to announce that JV partner and operator Tudor Gold Corp. (“Tudor”) has encountered numerous high grade gold/silver intercepts in preliminary drilling at the new HC zone at the Treaty Creek Project located in BC’s “Golden Triangle” immediately north of, and in the same hydrothermal system as, Seabridge Gold’s KSM project and Pretivm’s Brucejack project.

The new HC zone shares geological characteristics similar and unique to the famous Eskay Creek deposit located approximately 12 km to the northwest.

Tudor reported the following:

“The HC mineralized zone of the HC deposit within the GR2 claim block on Tudor Gold Corp.’s 60-per-cent-owned Treaty Creek project, located in the Golden Triangle in British Columbia, hosts a precious-metal-rich, polymetallic, volcanogenic massive sulphide and sulphosalt (VHMS) mineralized system.

Walter Storm, president and chief executive officer, stated: “We are very pleased with the results so far. We were attracted to the Treaty Creek project by the clear potential for extensive mineralized zones on our claims, and the results from the HC zone within the GR2 claim block have exceeded our expectations. We look forward to the completion of a resource estimate on the HC zone and a resource estimate on the Copper Belle project, which is also well under way.”

The HC zone appears to be a complete precious-metal-rich VHMS deposit in which the feeder vein system, the vent structures and the sulphides in a restricted sedimentary basin had been intersected. All three zones of the HC deposit carry elevated values of gold. The feeder vein system also carries elevated silver and base metal (lead, zinc and copper) content.

The HC zone shows elevated concentrations of gold, silver and antimony sulphosalts hosted between a pervasively sericite-pyrite-chlorite altered volcaniclastic sequence (bimodal mafic-felsic affinity) and restricted sedimentary basins where mudstones host sulphide mineralization underlying stockwork base metal and precious metal veins. These characteristics are similar and unique to the nearby Eskay Creek deposit. The highest-grade and most continuous precious metal mineralization within the HC zone occurs as an apparent stratabound zone at the contact of the footwall mudstone and the hydrothermally altered volcaniclastic sequence. This is interpreted as being the product of a mineralizing growth-graben fault, proximal to felsic flows, ash tuffs and felsic conglomerates.

During the continuing 2017 season, Tudor Gold has drilled 13 holes in the vicinity of and to the north of the nine holes drilled in 2007 and 11 holes in 2009 by American Creek Resources. Together, these 33 holes have produced consistent geology demonstrating the continuity of the feeder vein system, the vent structure and the sedimentary basin within the area bounded by these holes (assays received up to HC-17-07; awaiting assays on all remaining 2017 holes).

The holes drilled by Tudor Gold and American Creek Resources cover approximately 400 metres along strike and 450 metres down dip at 50-metre space increments in the direction of the main mineralized structure. Historical surface sampling carried out by previous operators to both the north and south of the HC zone indicates that the main mineralized structure extends at least for 3,000 metres along strike. The entire 3,000-metre mineralized structure that hosts the HC zone remains open to the north, south beyond the existing drill holes and down dip.

ASSAY RESULTS:

1. The Feeder Vein System: It is comprised of discordant veins hosted mainly in pervasively sericite-pyrite-chlorite altered volcaniclastic sequence. Two types of veins are recognized: silver dominant Mn-rich carbonates and sulphides (semi-massive yellow to light brown zoned sphalerite, galena, pyrite and minor chalcopyrite can add to >50% of the veins) and gold dominant chalcedonic quartz veins. Textures include those more typical of the epithermal suite (banded, crustiform, breccia/vein).

True thickness of the different mineralized intervals still to be determined.

2. The Vent Structure: It is comprised of silica flooded and altered mudstone and volcanic conglomerates along with breccias and semi-massive sulphide replacements. Several stages of silica can be recognized cementing and replacing successive events of brecciation. Silica alteration occurs as silicification and chalcedonic silica, usually gray to bluish in color, obliterating previous textures. Pyrite and Sb-sulphosalts are the dominant sulphides as veinlets, stringers and semi-massive replacements. Stibnite, galena, sphalerite and arsenopyrite are also common in veinlets and disseminations.

True thickness of the different mineralized intervals still to be determined.

Darren Blaney, President and CEO of American Creek stated: “This new HC zone northern extension of the GR2 is a bonus that we weren’t expecting. We are very encouraged by the remarkably similar characteristics of the HC to the Eskay Creek deposit located to the northwest of us. Although still very preliminary, the drill results thus far have shown great promise for the future discovery potential of this portion of the extensive Treaty Creek property. Three drills are presently turning on the property with the objective being to define a gold resource on both the Copper Belle and GR2 zones.”
