American Creek Resources Reports 780 Meter Intercept of 0.683 g/t Gold Including a Higher Grade Upper Portion of 1.095 g/t over 370.5 Meters in New Hole at Treaty Creek Prompting Mobilization of Second Drill to Project
TSX VENTURE: AMK
Cardston, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 30, 2019) - American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) ("the Corporation") ("American Creek") is pleased to announce results from the first three diamond drill holes at the Goldstorm Zone on the Treaty Creek Joint Venture project, located in the Golden Triangle of NW British Columbia. In light of the favourable results obtained during phase one drilling, a second drill has arrived on-site and has begun drilling for the phase two portion of the program.
Tudor Gold Exploration Manager, Ken Konkin explains: "The Goldstorm system continues to grow rapidly along strike to the northeast and towards the footwall contact zone to the southeast. The best near-surface intercept obtained to-date on the project has been obtained from the latest hole; GS19-42. This is a vertical hole that is a 150m step-out to the northeast from drill hole CB18-39 (0.981g/t Au over 563.8m intercept). The higher grade upper portion of last year's hole CB18-39 averaged 1.141 g/t Au over 280.5m compared to the same upper mineralized horizon of GS19-42 that averages 1.268 g/t Au over a 252.0 m intercept. The system appears to be gaining strength to the northeast as the depth is now showing to exceed 700m, with an average of 0.683 g/t Au over 780 meters of vertical intercept. The mineralized horizon appear to be near flat-lying with excellent grade consistency between holes along the upper horizon. Exploration efforts will attempt to extend the zone further to the northeast with yet another 150m NE step-out hole from GS19-42."
Drill holes GS19-40 and GS19-41, were successful in locating the footwall contact zone, which is a very fine-grained strongly silicified volcanic unit. Furthermore, porphyritic intrusive was also encountered at the base of GS19-40, and within GS19-41 that returned anomalous copper and molybdenum values. As well, a strong silver-bearing base-metal system has been seen for the first time in the northernmost hole (GS19-42), within the upper mineralized horizon. Values of 33.51 g/t Au, 1,154 g/t Ag, 2.89% Cu, 5.96% Pb and 1.89% Zn were returned over a 1.5 meter interval from 209.5 m to 211.0 m was a pleasant surprise in the last hole GS19-42.
The following table provides gold composites from the Goldstorm Zone in the first three 2019 drill holes completed:

Walter Storm, President and CEO of Tudor Gold, stated: "I am delighted to see that the Goldstorm Zone has been expanded for another 150 meters with this step out drill-hole 42. I am looking forward to potentially expanding the Goldstorm zone again with another 150 meter step out drill-hole, which has started with our second drill."
Darren Blaney, President and CEO of American Creek, commented: "This is very encouraging as we have our best hole to date at Treaty. Furthermore, in addition to a major extension of the system to the northeast, we are now seeing some high grade gold, silver and base metals showing up in the core. I congratulate Mr. Konkin on delivering the goods. Well done!"
Drill core samples were prepared at MSA Labs' Preparation Laboratory in Terrace, BC and assayed at MSA Labs' Geochemical Laboratory in Langley, BC. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the submission of blanks, certified standards and duplicate samples inserted at regular intervals into the sample stream by Tudor Gold personnel. MSA Laboratories quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 17025 and ISO 9001.

About American Creek
American Creek is a Canadian junior mineral exploration company with a strong portfolio of gold and silver properties in British Columbia.
Three of those properties are located in the prolific "Golden Triangle"; the Treaty Creek and Electrum joint venture projects with Tudor Gold/Walter Storm as well as the 100% owned past producing Dunwell Mine.
The Treaty Creek Project is a Joint Venture with Tudor Gold owning 60% and acting as operator. American Creek and Teuton Resources each have 20% interests in the project. American Creek and Teuton are both fully carried until such time as a Production Notice is issued, at which time they are required to contribute their respective 20% share of development costs. Until such time, Tudor is required to fund all exploration and development costs while both American Creek and Teuton have "free rides".
Tudor is presently conducting a major drill program at Treaty Creek with the objective being to define a significant gold resource.
The Corporation also holds the Gold Hill, Austruck-Bonanza, Ample Goldmax, Silver Side, and Glitter King properties located in other prospective areas of the province.
