Raymond, Alberta - American Creek Resources Ltd. (the “Corporation”) (TSX Venture: AMK) is pleased to provide an update for the 2007 Electrum Project exploration program that commenced in early June. The program is ahead of schedule despite extreme snow depths in the Stewart area this year. An aggregate of 8,700 meters of NQ and BQ diamond drilling in 31 holes has been completed to date. Drilling is ongoing with two drills currently working on the property.
Drill core logging, splitting and sampling is ongoing at American Creek’s facility in Stewart, British Columbia. The core samples are processed and are then delivered to Eco Tech Laboratory’s sample preparation facility in Stewart. Assay samples are then shipped to Eco Tech’s main facility in Kamloops for assay.
The Electrum Project is located in the “Golden Triangle” approximately 45km north of Stewart, British Columbia, near past operating mines including the Riverside, Scotty Gold, Granduc, and Silbak-Premier. The Electrum encompasses the historic East Gold mine. Barrick’s world-class Eskay Creek mine is located approximately 50km north of the project.
