Raymond, Alberta… American Creek Resources Ltd. (the “Corporation”) is pleased to report that it has successfully completed the phase I drill program at the Ironmist Project located in south-central British Columbia, approximately 60 km north of Kamloops. An aggregate total of 658 meters of diamond drilling occurred in two separate zones: the Iron Ridge and Ironmist.
Drilling was designed to test the continuity of previously discovered vanadium-rich magnetite mineralization located on surface and within well-defined magnetic anomalies (see news releases dated August 15, 2008 and October 20, 2008).
All seven holes drilled intersected magnetite mineralization with several holes ending while still within magnetite-rich zones. Core logging took place on site with cutting and sampling to take place within the next few weeks. Once processed, the samples will then be submitted for assay.
The Ironmist Project is road-accessible and is close to major infrastructure such as highways, power and a rail line.
Highlights from initial surface rock sampling conducted in 2008 include:
43.5% iron with 0.40% vanadium
As previously announced by the Corporation, all requirements under an option agreement that included the Ironmist property have been met (see October 8, 2009 news release). The Corporation now holds a 100% interest in the project (subject to an NSR royalty).
