American Creek Resources Ltd. (“American Creek”) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that on late Friday afternoon a letter addressed to both American Creek and Teuton Resources Corp. (“Teuton”) was received from Seabridge Gold (TSX:SEA) (NYSE:SA) (“Seabridge”) in which Seabridge updated the parties on the advancement of its KSM Project and officially notifying American Creek and Teuton that it is proceeding with applications to the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations branch under the Mineral Tenure Act, Land Act and Mines Act in order to permit and construct the proposed Mitchell-Treaty Tunnels (“MTT”) that will link the KSM mine area to the proposed processing plant and tailings impoundments in the upper North Treaty Creek valley. Seabridge also requested that American Creek and Teuton re-open negotiations in order to come to an agreement on Seabridge obtaining access rights to proceed through the Corporation’s Treaty Creek property.

The American Creek Board of Directors, along with its legal advisors and geological team, are currently considering all aspects of Seabridge’s applications and related offer to negotiate.
