VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQX: USGDF / FWB: 1QC) (“American Pacific” or “the Company”) is pleased to report high-grade assays from a recent rock chip sampling program at the Tuscarora Project in Elko County, Nevada.
A total of 22 rock samples were collected during the Phase I program on the claims acquired from Ubica Gold Corp. in 2021 (see September 15, 2021 news release). Of the 22 samples, 7 were below detection limits for gold (“Au”) and silver (“Ag”). The remaining results are shown in Table 1.
The highest-grade sample, 205.83 g/t Au, is located near the Repo Vein target. American Pacific began drilling this target on May 22, 2022.

“We have received first sample assays from our 2022 Tuscarora exploration program. The sample grades further confirm the high-grade nature of the veins in the district,” stated President, Eric Saderholm. “Sample TSZH-19, collected from a previously untested area, is of particular interest to us since it contains both strong gold and silver values as the systems become both silver and gold-enriched moving north into the claim block we acquired in 2021. Based on these high values, we have moved the drill rig onto the recently constructed pads to test this promising new Repo Vein. We look forward to releasing first 2022 drill results shortly.”
Technical aspects of this press release have been reviewed and approved by Eric Saderholm, P.Geo., the designated Qualified Persons (QP) under National Instrument 43-101.
