American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:AMK) (“American Creek”) is pleased to provide results from outcrop specimens of high grade material collected on its Electrum property from the Shiny Cliff vein on the North Face Showing.
Twenty-two specimens were collected along a central druzy quartz vein, approximately 35 cm wide, infilled with dark grey mineralization. The specimens from the structure averages 27,092 gm/tonne silver and 248 gm/tonne gold.
The following table lists the results.
The American Creek 2015 fall exploration program focused on the Shiny Cliff area. Its objective was to gain a better understanding of the geological structures present and to test a newly developed exploration concept and approach for the property.
A specialized diamond coring drill was utilized which had the capability to drill flat holes and which provided the ability to drill targets of interest with more precision. Approximately 100 grab specimens were collected from various locations on the property and eight shallow diamond drill holes totaling 1020 feet were drilled.
Drilling was carried out 15 metres to the southeast towards the Shiny Cliff showings. Our current understanding of the larger structure which hosts the high grade specimens from the Shiny Cliff showings are that the alteration zone is roughly 10 metres wide containing 3 veins. The structure strikes NorthWest and dips steeply to the SouthWest into the hillside. The Shiny Cliff Vein material assayed is interpreted to be the central of the 3 veins intersected by the drilling.
Precious metal values for all specimens were measured by the accurate, but destructive, fire-assay. 50 gram specimens were fire assayed by Bureau Veritas Minerals Laboratories (BVML) services in Vancouver, Canada. The technique used lead collection fire assay fusion for total sample decomposition, digestion of the Ag dore bead and the gold bead is then analyzed by gravimetric method. It should be noted that an extra equipment wash with silica between specimen pulverizing was in place to reduce sample cross contamination.
Additional assays results, along with an interpretation of those results, will be released in the near future after further analysis has been completed.
The Electrum project is 100 per cent owned by American Creek and is located in the Golden Triangle, north of Stewart, B.C., a region known for its dynamic, large scale precious metal exploration and mining activities
The Electrum project (historical East gold mine) is located approximately 25 km south of Pretivm's Brucejack gold mine. The Electrum is road accessible and is only 45 km from world-class concentrate shipping port facilities located in Stewart.
The Qualified Person for the Electrum exploration program is Alex Burton, P. Eng., P. Geo. for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
