  • 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.

Background on the Treaty Creek Project

The Treaty Creek Project is situated immediately north of Seabridge Gold’s KSM property and near Pretium’s Valley of the Kings Mine, both of which are located in BC’s Golden Triangle along the Sulphurets and Brucejack fault systems that continue northward into the Treaty Creek property.

Tudor conducted a major drill program (approximately 20,000 metres) on the Treaty Creek property this past summer. The objective of the drill program was to define a gold resource on the Copper Belle zone and to determine the future potential of the high grade gold/silver/zinc GR2 zone located in a separate area adjacent to the Copper Belle.

The Treaty Creek Project is a joint venture between Tudor, Teuton Resources Corp., and American Creek. Tudor is the operator and holds a 60% interest with both American Creek and Teuton each holding respective 20% carried interests in the property (fully carried until a production notice is given).

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.

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.”

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.

3. The Sulphides in Sedimentary Basins: Fine grained pyrite and Sb-sulphosalts have been identified as finely laminated sedimentary beds and patchy pyrite/quartz replacements within mudstones/siltstones in the proximity of the venting structures intersected in core, particularly around holes HC-17-01, 04, 05, 08, 10, 11 and 12 (as per visual inspection of the drill core). The mineralization appears to be hosted in the immediate contact of the underlying footwall mudstone unit and the upper altered volcaniclastic sequence.

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.”

The Qualified Person for the 2017 Treaty Creek project field season, the geological content of this news release, and for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 is Raul Sanabria, MSc, P.Geo, EurGeol.

  • Retained the services of Mr. Jeff Kyba, P. Geo., to provide advice and direction on the exploration and development of Tudor’s mineral claims in the “Golden Triangle” near Stewart, British Columbia
  • Brings a wealth of personal knowledge about the mineralization and potential of this geologically rich area. 

CARDSTON, ALBERTA–( Jan. 24, 2017) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AMK) (“American Creek”) is pleased to report that Tudor Gold Corp. (“Tudor”) has retained the services of Mr. Jeff Kyba, P. Geo., to provide advice and direction on the exploration and development of Tudor’s mineral claims in the “Golden Triangle” near Stewart, British Columbia.

Mr. Kyba has worked with both the British Columbia Geological Survey and the British Columbia Ministry of Mines as the Regional Geologist for the Skeena Mining District, BC’s busiest district which includes the “Golden Triangle”. He brings a wealth of personal knowledge about the mineralization and potential of this geologically rich area.

Mr. Kyba is best known for his work with the British Columbia Geological Survey where, together with a fellow geologist, he carried out one of the most important and influential studies of the geology of the “Golden Triangle”. That study resulted in the publishing of the foremost report on the Treaty Glacier south to Stewart portion of the “Golden Triangle” titled Structural and stratigraphic control of porphyry and related mineralization in the Treaty Glacier – KSM – Brucejack – Stewart trend of western Stikinia. They formed the opinion that this trend, which encompasses both Tudor/American Creek joint ventures, the Treaty Creek and Electrum projects, “is one of the most productive and promising in northwestern British Columbia.”

Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor Gold, stated: “We see it as a great advantage to have Mr. Kyba involved in our exploration program. At Tudor Gold we rely on the best people and the most technologically advanced exploration methods we can employ. Mr. Kyba will fit right in.”

Darren Blaney, American Creek CEO stated: “We are thrilled with this new development of Mr. Kyba now being involved in advancing our joint venture projects with Tudor. We have referenced his geological study work several times in the past. To now have him personally join in the effort adds both credibility and significant further discovery potential to our projects. We are very much looking forward to the upcoming 2017 exploration programs.”
