American Pacific Mining Announces Gooseberry Grab Samples, from trace to 18.45 g/t Gold, 595 g/t Silver

June 5, 2019

VANCOUVER—June 5, 2019—American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / FWB: 1QC / OTCPK: USGDF) (“APM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from recent grab samples from the Gooseberry Precious Metals Project near Reno, Nevada. American Pacific Mining recently acquired the past producing project through staking (refer to press release April 23, 2019). A total of nine initial samples were taken from the dumps and old mineralized stockpiles at Gooseberry, with highlight results including the following:

  • Sample GB19ECS-007- 1.05 kg: 18.45 g/t Au and 595 g/t Ag
  • Sample GB19ECS-003- 0.59 kg: 17.75 g/t Au and 310 g/t Ag
  • Sample GB19ECS-001- 1.25 kg: 10.25 g/t Au and 218 g/t Ag
  • Sample GB19ECS-006- 0.70 kg: 10.20 g/t Au and 273 g/t Ag

“Initial assays from grab samples at the Gooseberry Project are really encouraging, with elevated silver and gold grades,” commented CEO Warwick Smith. “When Asamera Minerals was producing at the Gooseberry Mine in the late 1980’s, they shifted focus to the tailings. The stockpiled materials appear to be indicative of the materials they were mining at the later mining phases. More sampling across the property will take place at Gooseberry shortly.”

Samples were taken from mineralized vein material composed of dolomite, calcite and quartz. Grab samples are selective samples and may not necessarily be representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. Historically, mined materials were brought to the surface and stockpiled at Gooseberry, crushed and then run through a heap leach. These nine samples were taken from materials most likely extracted late in the mining phase due to their location on the upper stockpile. Some materials have gone through a primary crushing process only. According to historical records Asamera ceased hard rock mining during 1989 due to low metals prices and higher underground production costs, and moved to the more easily accessible mine tailings.

The Gooseberry Precious Metals Property is located in the Ramsey Mining District in Storey County, Nevada, USA approximately 24 miles east of Reno. The principal vein structure has been explored along strike for around 3000 feet. The Property contains high-grade gold-silver bearing quartz-calcite vein structures. It is characterized as a low-sulfidation epithermal system, typified by banded to cockscomb quartz textures and the presence of adularia and kaolinite.


Samples were sent to ALS Elko located at 1345 Water St, Elko, NV, USA for CRU-32, CRU-QC, DRY-22 PUL-32m PUL-QC, SND-ALS, and WEI-21. Samples were processed at ALS Reno located at 4977 Energy Way, Reno NV, USA for Ag-Gra22, and Au-AA26. Grab samples were randomly selected from the stockpile, bagged and transported by APM President and QP, Eric Saderholm. Preparation by the lab included Weighing and Crushing QC Test, Pulverizing QC Test, Drying, fine crushing 90% <2mm, sample splitting with a riffle splitter, and Pulverize 1000g to 85% <75 um. Analytical procedures include Ag- GRA22, Ag 50g FA-GRAV finish with WST-SIM Instrument, and Au-AA26, ore grade Au 50g FA AA finish with AAS Instrument.
