American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK / OTC:ACKRF) is pleased to announce it has commenced a diamond drill exploration program on its 100% owned Electrum Property, a gold / silver project near Stewart, British Columbia.  The program is designed to test the extension of mapped surface veins at depth and to confirm a shear / alteration zone that appears to be controlling the extensive mineralization found on the property.

 

Electrum6


Initial work begun in July of this year included detailed mapping of newly discovered veins.  A chip sample taken in 2010 assaying 694 g/t gold and 550 g/t silver was obtained along this system of closely spaced epithermal breccia-veins exposed in continuous outcrop for over 50 meters.  Other samples from this area assayed 71.8 g/t gold with over 10,000 g/t silver and 5.21 g/t gold with 2,800 g/t silver.

 

The Electrum Property lies in the heart of the prolific mining region known as the "Golden Triangle” in a valley containing four past producing commercial mines, and hosts the historic East Gold Mine.
