Raymond, Alberta - American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX Venture:AMK) is pleased to release the results of the Electrum Project Phase II diamond drilling program completed in November, 2006. Highlights of the program include 16.86 g/t gold over 1.0 metre; 7.15 g/t gold with 123.0 g/t silver and 0.41% zinc over 0.62 metres; and 440.78 g/t gold with 400.0 g/t silver and 0.33% zinc over 0.52 metres. Wide intersections of lower grade gold were also encountered.

An aggregate total of 1,753.28 metres of BQ2 diamond drilling was completed in 10 holes as part of the Phase II program. Targeting for Phase II drilling was based on results from Phase I drilling as well as results of the summer exploration program including soil geochemistry, surface sampling, induced polarization geophysical survey, and geological mapping (see news release dated October 18, 2006). Drilling to date has tested the northwest to southeast trending lithologies over a strike length of approximately 400 metres. The Phase II drilling has further defined structures that may be important hosts for mineralization.

Drill core logging and splitting took place at American Creek’s secure facility in Stewart, British Columbia. The core samples were sent to ACME Analytical Laboratories Ltd. in Vancouver, B.C. for assay.

Significant intersections from the program are included in the table below:

* presented as drill hole intercept width – not neccessarily true width.

Drill hole EL06-18 returned the highest values for gold and silver (440.78 g/t and 400.0 g/t respectively) from sample interval 72.57 to 73.09. Observations made of the core from this interval indicate that the mineral electrum was present in visible quantities. Electrum is a gold and silver bearing mineral.

Allan Burton, President and CEO stated: “We are extremely encouraged by the results thus far on the Electrum Project. Along with high-grade intersections, we are also seeing widespread gold and silver throughout the system. We are looking forward to spring 2007 when a significantly larger program will commence.”

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. The Electrum is road accessible and is only 45km from concentrate shipping port facilities located in Stewart.

Certain information contained in this news release constitutes forward-looking statements regarding the Corporation’s mineral properties. Forward looking statements are frequently characterized by words such as "plan", "expect", "project", "intend", "believe", "anticipate" or statements that certain events or conditions "may" or "will" occur. Forward-looking statements are based on the reasonable opinions and estimates of management of American Creek and are subject to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. These factors include: the inherent risks involved in the exploration and development of mineral properties, uncertainties involved in the interpretation of drill results and other geological data, fluctuating commodity prices, unforeseen permitting requirements, changes in environmental laws or regulations, the possibility of project cost overruns or unanticipated costs and expenses, weather conditions, the availability of contractors for equipment and services, the availability of future financing and general business and economic conditions. Such statements are also based on a number of assumptions which may prove to be incorrect, including assumptions about general business and economic conditions being accurate, the timing and receipt of regulatory approvals for projects and operations, the availability of financing, the ability to secure equipment and labour, and American Creek’s ongoing relationship with third parties.
