Vancouver, British Columbia / November 4, 2021 – American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQB: USGDF) (“American Pacific” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has commenced drilling at its Gooseberry Silver Project in Nevada. The Company also notes that this historical producer of high-grade silver and gold ore has not seen any drilling in the last 25 years and is excited about the potential to revitalize this mine.
The initial 3,500 to 4,000 metre, 15-hole diamond drill program will focus on testing known mineralized zones, including both lateral and down-dip extensions to some of the higher-grade mineralization that was encountered during mining throughout the 1900’s. Results from this initial drill program are expected to provide valuable information regarding the east and west lateral extent of the known Gooseberry vein and additionally will assist in guiding future phases of drilling at the project.
“We are pleased to have commenced drilling at our Gooseberry silver project, focusing on areas of known, very high-grade silver and gold mineralization,” stated American Pacific President, Eric Saderholm. “Based on success from our initial drill holes, we may accelerate the program with a second drill rig.”
Assay results will be released once received, vetted and interpreted.
Technical aspects of this press release have been reviewed and approved by Eric Saderholm, P.Geo., the designated Qualified Persons (QP) under NI 43-101.
