VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE:USGD) (OTCPK:USGDF) (FWB:1QC) (“APM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the 1,818 hectare Tuscarora Gold Project in Elko Nevada. The staged drill program will include an initial 7500 feet of drilling, or approximately 10-12 holes. Results will be evaluated and then a second stage of drilling will complete the approximate 19-hole program.
Eric Saderholm, President & Director of APM comments: “There are two drills turning now at Tuscarora. The most cost-effective way to complete this program is to use a Reverse Circulation rig to drill through the gravel cover which varies between 150-550 feet, depending on the hole location. We will then case the holes in preparation for core drilling through the bedrock.” Saderholm continues: “The hidden nature of the South Navajo Vein is the main reason that it remains intact and not already mined out by historical mining methods. Our increased land position and the open-ended nature of the Navajo Vein set puts us in an advantageous position moving forward. We are now able to follow up and expand upon the positive results from Novo Resources’ 2016 drilling. Historic drilling has been Reverse Circulation and coring will give us valuable information on the true nature and controls of the mineralization.”
