VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQX: USGDF / FWB: 1QC) (“American Pacific” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has expanded its South Lida Project land package in Nevada to 1,500 acres by staking 64 additional claims.

An initial sampling program is planned to evaluate the new claims and to identify new targets on the property and data collected will be included in an updated NI 43-101 Technical Report (“NI 43-101”) expected later this year.

The Project is being explored as a sediment hosted, Carlin-type, structurally controlled epithermal gold system. The Project is in western Nevada where the southern part of the Walker Lane structure merges with the Owens Valley and Furnace Creek faults. The Walker Lane is a major northwest-southeast-trending structural zone that hosts a variety of precious metal and base metal mineral deposits.

“Historical sampling at South Lida has yielded gold values of up to 11.45 grams/ton gold, 1,280 grams/ton silver and 20.8% copper so it is clearly a property of merit. The presence of multiple intermediate to basic dikes, quartz veins and abundant jasperoids show both epithermal and Carlin-style mineralization signatures. The 2022 program will include outcrop and float sampling, geologic mapping and a gravity survey which will define drill targets and support further exploration efforts,” stated American Pacific President, Eric Saderholm.
