Vancouver, British Columbia / January 26, 2022 - American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQB: USGDF / FWB: 1QC) ("American Pacific" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the expansion of the Tuscarora Gold Project ("the Project") through the staking of an additional 47 claims totaling 971 acres in Elko County, Nevada and plans a CAD $5 million program drilling up to 70 holes (17,000 metres) to test a series of high-grade gold targets at the Project in 2022.
The now 215 claim, 4272 acre Project consists of numerous high-grade gold vein targets, including the Grand Prize Target from which the company reported bonanza grade samples of 21,032 g/t gold ("Au") and 38,820 g/t silver ("Ag") in 2021. (See news release dated September 15, 2021)

"We are excited to begin our 2022 drilling and exploration programs at Tuscarora with a reverse circulation drill already turning on the high-grade Modoc Vein as we await permits for our other priority targets, which we expect to receive in the coming weeks," stated President Eric Saderholm." The Tuscarora District epithermal veins lie in one of the most intense alteration areas within the State of Nevada and we believe a committed, systematic and dedicated exploration and development approach will vastly increase the size of the district and our understanding of the gold and silver ounces contained within."
The Phase I exploration program includes up to 17,000 metres of drilling focused on numerous exploration targets, including the Modoc Target, the Grand Prize/Payday Targets, the East Pediment Zone, plus additional drilling on the South Navajo Zone. Additional high priority targets are expected to emerge as the newly acquired dataset is evaluated by the Company's geology team and incorporated into the geological model. In addition to drilling, the comprehensive exploration program will include a CSAMT geophysical survey, 1500 soil and geochemical samples and extensive geological modelling to further define the numerous high-grade targets on the Project. The new CSAMT data, which has been highly effective in identifying and targeting vein sets throughout the world, will be sutured into the existing 2019 survey data.
Assays from a previous drill program at American Pacific's existing Tuscarora claims returned high-grade intercepts with 4.57 metres of 127.08 g/t Au, including 1.52 m of 368.31 g/t Au from the South Navajo Zone and 1.52 metres of 52.37 g/t Au from the East Pediment Vein. (See Tuscarora Project page for a complete list of assay results).
