  • Eleven specimens were collected along a quartz vein.
  • Specimens from the structure average 11,512 gm/tonne silver and 54.6 gm/tonne gold.

CARDSTON, ALBERTA–(Jan. 21, 2016) – American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:AMK) (“American Creek”) is pleased to provide results from outcrop specimens of high grade material collected on its Electrum property from a known vein on the Rico Showing. The Rico Showing is roughly 50 metres south of the Shiny Cliff Showing.

Eleven specimens were collected along a quartz vein. The specimens from the structure average 11,512 gm/tonne silver and 54.6 gm/tonne gold.

The following table lists the results.

The American Creek 2015 fall exploration program focused on the Shiny Cliff area, a northwest striking, approximately 10 metre wide highly silicified zone which hosts a minimum of three quartz veins. The zone and veins steeply dip southwest into the hillside. They have been traced on surface and tracked with horizontal drilling for 40 metres along trend. A modified diamond drill provided American Creek with the ability to drill targets of interest with precise short holes. American Creek is much encouraged with the success of the tight drill patterns, to reveal the geometry of the rich epithermal systems found on the property.

As reported previously, twenty-two specimens were collected along a central druzy quartz vein, approximately 35 cm wide, infilled with dark grey mineralization. The specimens from the structure averages 27,092 gm/tonne silver and 248 gm/tonne gold.

The mineralized zone with North Face of Shiny Cliff is amenable to examination and thorough sampling by deep slot trenching. The practicality of this approach is illustrated by a roughly cubic 40 ton boulder that has broken off the face of Shiny Cliff and has moved about 20 metres downslope. Specimens from it averaged 857 gm/tonne silver and 10.6 gm/tonne gold.

The Mine Hill Showing is roughly half way between the historic East Gold mine and Shiny Cliff Showing. It is roughly 65 metres southeast of the Shiny Cliff Showing. Thirteen specimens were collected along a weathered, silificied and bifurcated, sulphide rich vein system. The specimens from the structure average 522.93 gm/tonne silver and 6.55 gm/tonne gold.

Precious metal values for all specimens were determined from fire assay by Bureau Veritas Minerals Laboratories (BVML) services in Vancouver, Canada.

A 100 metres southeast of the Rico, the Horse Trail Showing contains gold bearing galena. Exploratory grab specimens had gold values as high as 4.5 g/tonne.
