American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK / OTC:ACKRF) has received results from metallurgical work done to samples taken from the Ironmist property.  In August, 2011, approximately 50kg of surface samples were provided to ALS Ammtec in Perth Australia for metallurgical testing.  Metallurgical supervision and reporting was provided by ProMet Engineers Pty. Ltd., also of Perth Australia.

The September 2011 ProMet report highlighted the following:

  • DTR tests indicated weight recovery of 73% at 45 microns with an iron grade of 66.3%, silica at 0.4%, 2.6% Al2O3 and 3.4% TiO2.
  • 57% rejection of tails at 80% passing 500 microns and greater than 20% at the first separation size of 80% passing 3mm.
  • Vanadium content is between 0.6% and 0.8%.
  • The grades listed above can be achieved using a crush and milling process to 45 microns P80.
  • The Bond Work Index results indicated a BWI of 18.0 kWh/t.
  • Further drilling needs to be undertaken to increase the data available for the deposit.
  • As noted above, more drilling, with further DTR and metallurgical testing, will be necessary to move the project forward.
