Posted by AGORACOM at 10:53 AM on Monday, March 22nd, 2021
– One of the largest gold discoveries in decades
– Open in all directions and at depth
– Exploration to increase in 2021
– Tudor is discovering gold at 1/50th the industry average*
– Cost of discovery for AMK is $0 / Ounce
– And yet…

The Best Is Yet To Come!
American Creek Resources (TSX-V: AMK) 
Tudor Gold (TSX-V: TUD)

American Creek’s JV partner and operator at Treaty Creek, Tudor Gold, just announced a 27 million ounce gold equivalent resource* for the Goldstorm zone. This brings Goldstorm into a World Class category and while a discovery of this magnitude is very rare, Tudor’s VP of Exploration Ken Konkin says he’s just getting started.  In the interview he states:

  “This is the first page of a great book…I’m very excited about what we may find this year…I’m very optimistic.”

Every American Creek shareholder (and their friends and family) should watch Ken Konkin’s interview. Ken’s discussion highlights the true blue sky potential that Treaty Creek has.  Who else in the world has ever said:
  “You give me $30M and I’ll give you 30M ounces” [of gold M&I]

In the interview Ken lays out his priorities for the 2021 Drill Program.  Priority #1 is to find the extent of the Goldstorm with big step outs then infill and convert as much of the Inferred resource into Measured and Indicated (M&I).  Priority #2 is to expand exploratory drilling on the PS2 and Eureka zones.

  “See if we can find another 15, 20, 25 million ounce deposit”

2021 at Treaty Creek is going to have more drills, more meters of drilling, convert Inferred resources to Measured & Indicated resources, expand the Goldstorm, develop the Perfect Storm zone, test the Eureka zone, and more.  After watching this interview you’ll realize why…
  The Best Is Yet To Come!

American Creek $ 27.3M Oz Gold Equivalent Discovery in BC’s Golden Triangle.. And They’re Just Scratching The Surface $ $ $

American Creek Provides Update on Its First Quarter Filings

B.C.’s prolific Golden Triangle is often referred to as “Elephant Country” given the intensity of mineral showings and deposits located there and because of the sheer scale of many of those deposits in this politically mining friendly jurisdiction.  In this case a combination of the two may have been discovered as Treaty Creek has potential for multiple district-scale deposits on the same property.

The first mineralized zone at Treaty Creek to have a maiden resource is the Goldstorm.  As explained in the March 9th press release it contains 19.4 million ounces at 0.74 g/t gold equivalent Measured and Indicated and 7.9 million ounces at 0.79 g/t gold equivalent Inferred.  This makes it one of the largest gold deposits discovered in the last decade.

The Treaty Creek Project is a Joint Venture with Tudor Gold owning 60% (3/5th) and acting as operator. American Creek has a 20% (1/5th) interest in the project creating a 3:1 ownership relationship between Tudor Gold and American Creek.  American Creek is fully carried until such time as a Production Notice is issued, at which time they are required to contribute their respective 20% share of development costs. Until such time, Tudor is required to fund all exploration and development costs while American Creek has a “free ride”.

A critical factor of metal deposits isn’t just the size, but it’s shape, consistency, and depth.  Fortunately, the richest mineralization at Goldstorm is located in the close to surface “300 Zone.” The deposit is contiguous and is remarkably consistent as well.  These factors create the potential for Goldstorm to be an open pit operation which is the least expensive route for both capital expenditures and operational expenditures, with the advantage of being able to mine the highest grade first.

The maiden or initial resource calculation is exactly that: initial.  The Goldstorm Zone remarkably remains open in all directions and at depth.  As Tudor Gold’s VP of Exploration, Ken Konkin has stated: “This is just the first chapter of a very good book”.  The edges or boundaries of the deposit are currently unknown with geophysical signatures indicating potential for significant expansion. Konkin, who was a key player in the development of the Brucejack Mine (Pretium Resources) just a few kilometers south of Treaty Creek, is an expert in both large-scale systems and geology in the Golden Triangle.  He has often spoken of the importance of the “frequency for occurrence”, “frequency of distribution”, and “structural traps” characteristic of world class hydrothermal systems that create a predictable “rhythm”.
He’s stated that the Sulphurets Hydrothermal System, which includes Pretium (Brucejack mine), Seabridge (KSM deposits), and Treaty Creek, is a perfect example of this rhythm and refers to its many deposits as a “string of pearls……just really big pearls!”  The potentially massive deposits on Treaty, including the Goldstorm and the Perfect Storm Zone, are located exactly where they should be within this system.  Seabridge’s KSM deposits (Kerr, Sulphurets, Mitchell, Iron Cap) comprise the largest undeveloped gold deposit(s) in the world containing P&P reserves of 38 million ounces gold and 10.2 billion pounds of copper.  Each deposit is approximately 2.5 – 3km apart and this “rhythm” continues northward through Treaty Creek with the Perfect Storm, the Goldstorm, and potential Goldstorm 2 zones. The yet to be drilled Perfect Storm zone has the same type of structural, geological, and geophysical characteristics as the other major deposits in the “string of pearls”.  Along with expanding the Goldstorm, drilling the Perfect Storm will be one of the focuses for Tudor in 2021. On July 24, 2020 billionaire metals investor Eric Sprott stated (referring to the Goldstorm):
It certainly looks like they have 20 million ounces and they could easily get to 30 or 40 or 50 million ounces (of gold)
It looks like Eric’s prediction is remarkably accurate so far.  With expansion of the Goldstorm and planned upcoming drilling of both the Perfect Storm and Eureka, the Treaty Creek project is primed to have a break-out year in the gold space. Treaty Creek is just 20km down a valley to a paved highway and high-transmission power lines with some of the cheapest power in the world. This is critical as power accounts for approximately 25% of mining costs.  From there it’s only a 90-minute drive to bulk tonnage shipping ports in Stewart, BC.  The project has excellent gold recoveries, water, a mining friendly government, and supportive First Nations in the area. What grade does it take to make a mine?  That depends on a lot of factors, but critical ones include cheap power, proximity to roads and shipping ports, good recoveries, ample water, and close-to-surface deposits that can be open pit mined.  Fortunately, Treaty Creek appears to have these characteristics.  The in situ (in ground) grade is often lower than the head grade as initial beneficiation can concentrate the ore prior to processing.  Canada’s newest gold mine, the Eagle mine (Victoria Gold) located in northern Yukon, produces with 0.65 g/t AuEq grade.  Fort Knox (Kinross Gold) in Alaska produces at 0.4 g/t AuEq.  Many mines in northern BC owned by companies like Centerra gold and Imperial Metals operate mines averaging well under 1g/t AuEq. Tudor Gold appears to be doing an exceptional job at adding shareholder value when considering how much gold has already been proven up given the exploration expenditures to date.  Since their inception in 2016 it looks like they’ve raised close to $40M and they’ve discovered over 27 million ounces of gold!  That’s less than $1.5/Oz gold CAD.  Simply Amazing.  That number would go down when we only consider exploration dollars at Treaty Creek. Because of the fully carried nature of American Creek’s 20% interest, it actually costs American Creek $0 / ounce regardless of how many ounces are potentially discovered.  The American Creek shareholders are in the enviable position of seeing their stock value rise as Treaty Creek continues to be explored and developed without experiencing further dilution associated with that development.  Currently American Creek shares are undervalued when considering the present market valuation of the Treaty Creek project. The global gold market and gold miners have a dilemma. Gold ounces in the ground are being mined faster than new ounces are being replenished, especially when it comes to new discoveries and large discoveries.  Gold production is declining, and the mine life of new projects is getting shorter with smaller deposits being developed.  This is increasing demand for the best projects and in particular, large projects, at a time when gold producers are making more money than at any time in their history.

Pierre Lassonde, the Canadian billionaire who is the past president of Newmont Goldcorp, has sat on the World Gold Council, and is Chair Emeritus of Franco Nevada ($23 billion) summed up the opportunity applicable to the Treaty Creek project quite nicely in two recent interviews.  Back in the fall of 2020 he stated:

“Obviously, we’re going to see M&A in the space, and I think the way were going to see it is going to sort of be like three tiers.  That is, if you have a project that has 1 to 3-million-ounce reserve capability, you’ll get offers at par.  If you have 3 to 5-million-ounce of reserve capability, you’ll get a premium.  Any project that is from 5 to 10 to 15-million-ounces, there will be bidding wars for those.”

On March 8th, 2021 Mr Lassonde was asked:

“If you were to think like an investor now, what would you do to convince some of these smaller companies to enhance shareholder value?  What could the junior mining industry as a whole do right now that could be more attractive for investors at this time?”

His response:

“You know, the fundamental thing about junior mining is at the end of the day 90% of the value in our business is created by the drill bit.  So, you’ve got to look at your finding costs per ounce, and if these companies are not able to find gold for like $20, $30, $40 an ounce (they) should not be in this business.  What I look at as an investor, the bottom line is what’s your cost of finding an ounce of gold?  That’s your common denominator.  That’s where you find the value for shareholders.”

Gold is being discovered at Treaty Creek for less than $1.50 CAD ($1.18 USD) / Oz opposed to $20-$40/Oz, and they’ve only begun scratching the surface from a geological point of view.  American Creek shareholders are enjoying a $0/Oz rate.  As Mr. Lassonde stated, “(this) is where you find the value for shareholders”.  This truly is Elephant country and as Mr. Konkin put it “This is just the first chapter of a very good book”.  Based on the first chapter, this appears to be a book well worth reading.

American Creek $ JV Partner Tudor Gold Initial Mineral Resource Estimate at Treaty Creek; 19.4 Million Ounces of 0.74 gpt AuEq Measured and Indicated $ $ $

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:43 PM on Tuesday, March 9th, 2021
American Creek Provides Update on Its First Quarter Filings

American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) (“the Company”) is pleased to present results of the Initial Mineral Resource Estimate for the Goldstorm and Copper Belle Zones at their flagship property, Treaty Creek. The Property is located within the heart of the Golden Triangle of Northwestern British Columbia which is on-trend from Seabridge’s KSM Project located five kilometres southwest of the Goldstorm Zone. A total of 218 drill holes totaling 105,658.8 metres were used in the Mineral Resource Estimate completed by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (P&E). The constraining open-pit shell contains 14.15 million ounces of Measured and Indicated gold equivalent ounces (“AuEq”) at an average grade of 0.72 gpt AuEq and 5.26 million Measured and Indicated AuEq ounces at an average grade of 0.80 gpt AuEq for the out-of-pit Mineral Resources. Cut-off grades of 0.30 gpt AuEq were used inside the constraining open-pit shell and a higher cut-off grade of 0.46 gpt AuEq was used for the out-of-pit Mineral Resource Estimate which includes underground constrained blocks. The Goldstorm Zone remains open in all directions and at depth. The effective date of the Mineral Resource Estimate is March 1, 2021. A Technical Report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, will follow within 45 days of this news release and this will be posted on SEDAR and the Company’s website.

Tudor Gold’s Vice President of Exploration and Project Development, Ken Konkin, P.Geo., stated: “We are very pleased with the results obtained from our Initial Mineral Resource Estimate. Only 10-12 % of the gold equivalent values are attributed to silver and copper mineralization indicating a strong gold-dominate system. However, due to the immense volume of the system, it contains large quantities of silver and copper. Further studies are required to investigate the potential economic impact of these two metals. Our preliminary metallurgical test work shows excellent gold recoveries to a gravity + flotation concentrate. From four composite tests, gold recoveries averaged 96.2% in pyrite concentrates with overall gold recoveries after concentrate extraction expected to be on the order of 88%. The mineralogical studies also demonstrated that no deleterious elements such as As, Sb or Hg were detected within the Goldstorm and Copper Belle Zones. The four tests were carried out by BV Minerals Metallurgical Division and supervised by metallurgical consultant Frank Wright, P.Eng.

Our plans for 2021 are to complete the drilling of the Goldstorm Zone; to define the limits of the 300 Horizon, the CS-600 and DS-5 Zones. In-addition, diamond drilling is planned for the Eureka and Perfect Storm Zones. We believe that the Treaty Creek Property contains excellent potential for continued discovery of gold-silver-copper systems such as Goldstorm.”

Mineral Estimate Highlights include:

  • The classifications of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources for gold, silver, copper and gold-equivalents and their respective tonnage are listed in Table 1 below. In addition to the 17.33 million ounces of gold Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource and 7.22 million ounces of gold Inferred Mineral Resource, there are 93.41 million ounces of silver estimated as Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources with an additional 40.57 million ounces of Inferred silver Mineral Resource. The Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource also estimates 1.096 billion pounds of copper with an additional 330 million pounds of copper as an Inferred Mineral Resource.
  • A bulk density of 2.80 t/m3 was based on measurements taken by P&E during their field visits.
  • 5m x 5m x 5m three-dimensional block model was used for the Mineral Resource Estimate. Measured Mineral Resources are informed by four of more drill holes within 100 metres; Indicated Mineral Resources are informed by four of more drill holes within 200 metres.
