VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / FWB: 1QC / OTCPK: USGDF) (“APM” or the “Company”) is pleased to issue this corporate update following an active exploration season. APM completed >10,000 feet of rc and core drilling at the Tuscarora Gold Project, 50km northwest of Elko, Nevada. In addition to successfully confirming previous high-grade at Tuscarora in the South Navajo zone, APM extended the known mineralization 450m to the North with hole APTU-013. The project, a high-level, low-sulfidation, epithermal gold prospect, is located in the historic jurisdiction known as the Tuscarora Mining District. The Property lies at the foot of Mount Blitzen on the eastern slope of the Northern Tuscarora Range, an area known for extensive precious metals exploration and mining in the past.
Warwick Smith, CEO and Director, commented: “The plan in the near term is to complete a CSAMT survey across the Tuscarora property, and then shortly thereafter begin Phase 2 drilling. CSAMT will assist in generating those drill targets, in particular for the numerous veins that have not been tested previously.”
Once the CSAMT is complete the Company intends to permit and plan a 20,000ft drill campaign. The Tuscarora property tripled in size in March of this year, and a comprehensive Controlled-Source Audio Magnetotelluric Technique (CSAMT) survey across the entire property has never been done before. This type of survey involves transmitting a controlled electric signal at a series of frequencies into the ground from one location and then measuring the received electric and magnetic fields from another location. On July 18, 2018, APM identified a series of veins that were tested and locally mined where exposed at the surface in the late 1800s, but minimally explored when they dipped under pediment gravel.
