American Pacific Mining Corp (“APM” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that a gravity survey crew is onsite this week at Tuscarora in Elko Nevada. Magee Geophysical Services has been contracted by operator OceanaGold Corporation, APM’s joint venture partner at the Tuscarora Project (refer to press release April 15, 2019). Magee will conduct the survey to enhance and infill the existing gravity data gathered last year at the high-grade, epithermal gold project.
“We are excited the field season is moving forward at Tuscarora, with OceanaGold in the process of lining up the various contractors we will need onsite,” commented Eric Saderholm, APM’s President. “Leading into the summer and the next drill campaign at Tuscarora, the team should have a fair amount of interesting geophysical data to examine.”
