American Pacific Mining Samples 59.45 Grams Per Tonne Gold at Tuscarora Gold Project in Nevada






American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD) (OTCQB: USGDF) (FWB: 1QC) is pleased to announce that it has recently sampled up to 59.45 grams per tonne gold at its Tuscarora Gold Project.


The Tuscarora Gold Project is a high-grade, gold project located in a prime precious metal district in Nevada, USA, only 35km northeast of the Carlin trend, 20km southwest of the +9.5 million ounce gold producing Jerritt Canyon deposit, and 50km east-northeast of the Midas Deposit which yielded approximately 2.5 million ounces of gold and 30 million ounces of silver. Mining of high-grade gold and silver ores and placers began in the Tuscarora District in the late 1800’s. The Dexter gold mine, which has veins that project into the Tuscarora property land package, located south of town and north of the project, produced approximately 40,000 ounces of gold and 100,000 ounces of silver in the mid 1980’s.  More information can be found at:


Samples TU-ES21-050 and TU-ES21-051 both showed strong gold numbers with TU-ES21-051 returning a value of 1.73 ounce per ton gold (59.45 grams/tonne) and the TU-ES21-050 returning a value of 0.11oz/ton gold (3.77 grams/tonne).


“The 59.45 g/t gold value from a quartz/adularia vein is the highest grade sample I have collected from the property to date,” states American Pacific President Eric Saderholm. “These samples further illustrate the strength and grade of this series of vein systems. It is worth noting that the South Navajo Vein is but one of at least 10 veins that project onto our Tuscarora Gold Project.”
