American Pacific Mining Begins Trading, Ticker Symbol “USGD”

March 8, 2018

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Pacific Mining Corp (“APM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that shares will begin trading at market open today under the ticker symbol “USGD” on the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE). American Pacific Mining is a junior resource company exploring and advancing precious metal opportunities in the United States, with a focus on highly productive gold districts in the Western states. The company’s flagship property, Tuscarora, is an early stage, high-grade prospect located in a modern day gold producing region of Nevada. The project was optioned from NOVO Resources Corp (TSXV:NVO) in November of 2017.

“Previous high-grade drill results and potential for both vein extensions and new discovery really brought this project to the forefront with the team,” commented Warwick Smith, American Pacific’s CEO & Director.  “NOVO recently intersected 1.5m @ 143.5 g/t gold and in the 90’s Newcrest intersected 1.5m @ 182 g/t gold at relatively shallow depths. We are beginning a program of preliminary geological work now and we should have drills turning quickly in just a few months to confirm and expand on these previous results.”

Dr. Quinton Hennigh, President & Chairman of NOVO commented: “We believe that Tuscarora is a quality asset with promising mineralization. We look forward to seeing American Pacific Mining further develop the project and we are excited to participate in its true potential as shareholders of American Pacific Mining.”

The Tuscarora Mining District is only 25 miles northeast of the Carlin Trend, 14 miles southwest of the Jerritt Canyon deposit, and 30 miles east-northeast of the Midas deposit.

The Tuscarora Property

The Property consists of 24 claims covering approximately 447 acres within the Tuscarora Mining District in Elko County.  Tuscarora is an epithermal low-sulfidation gold property, which has had extensive reverse circulation drilling outlining two target zones, the South Navajo Vein and the East Pediment Zone.

“Tuscarora is a very prospective gold project in a historically significant, mining-friendly area of the USA. The team will now employ modern day exploration techniques to develop a deeper understanding of the two main target zones,” commented Eric Saderholm, President & Director of American Pacific Mining.

The Tuscarora Mining District is within a major gold producing region of Nevada.  Placer gold was discovered in the district in 1867 and production of silver-gold lode deposits began in 1875. Total precious metal production between 1867 and 1990 consists of 244,000 ounces of gold and 7,632,000 ounces of silver from quartz veins and quartz stockwork mineralization.

Since 1982, the Tuscarora District has had a sustained, exploration effort.  This effort has been almost continuous, with each subsequent operator building on the previous work.
