American Creek Resources report very high Electrum assays

American Creek Resources Ltd. [AMK-TSXV] reported results from outcrop specimens of high-grade material collected on its 100%-owned Electrum property from the Shiny Cliff vein on the North Face showing. The Electrum Project is located in the prolific Golden Triangle in northwest British Columbia, 45 km north of Stewart.

Twenty-two specimens were collected along a central druzy quartz vein, approximately 35 centimetres wide, infilled with dark grey mineralization. The specimens from the structure averages 27,092 grams/tonne silver and 248 g/t gold. Below is a selected list of sample assays:

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 totalling 1,020 feet were drilled.

Drilling was carried out 15 metres to the southeast toward the Shiny Cliff showings. The company’s current understanding of the larger structure which hosts the high-grade specimens from the Shiny Cliff showings is that the alteration zone is roughly 10 metres wide containing three 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 three veins intersected by the drilling.

Precious metal values for all specimens were measured by the accurate, but destructive, fire-assay. Fifty-gram specimens were fire assayed by Bureau Veritas Minerals Laboratories services in Vancouver, Canada.

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 (historical East gold mine) is located approximately 25 km south of Pretium’s Brucejack gold mine. The Electrum is road accessible and is only 45 km from world-class concentrate shipping port facilities located in Stewart.
