American Pacific Mining Announces Sampling Program at Gooseberry Silver Project, Nevada

American Pacific Mining Corp. announced that a sampling program is currently advancing at its Gooseberry Silver Project in Nevada. The sampling program will cover the entirety of American Pacific’s land position (approximately 827 acres), with the data being used to refine high-priority targets ahead of a planned CAD 2.5 million drill program later this year.

There will be a total of 4,161 soil samples collected, with 536 already gathered and sent to the laboratories for analysis from the Strawberry Target. Individual soil samples typically contain 500 to 1100 g of surficial material (soil) and are taken at a depth of 25 to 51 cm.

This well-organized soil geochemical program will provide important vectors for the type of vein system we have at Gooseberry. The alteration in this epithermal deposit is broadcast over most of the property controlled by American Pacific and no previous systematic geochemical work has been done on the property.

We discovered the presence of a parallel vein during Phase I drilling in late 2021 and this is the logical and essential next step to help identify next targets for the Phase II drilling planned during second half of 2022. We have identified parallel alteration features through initial mapping and property assessment and this sampling program will further refine our future drilling programs,” added Eric Saderholm.

We are also pleased to announce that we have consulted with an industry-respected geophysicist and have planned a CSAMT survey, a proven tool for identifying alteration associated with similar gold/silver vein systems throughout the world, for Gooseberry in Q2 of this year.

Following the success of the 2021 drill program that identified numerous mineralized veins where only one was earlier known to exist, the goal of this surface sampling plan is to determine zones of trace elements and anomalous silver for additional drill targeting. The outcropping Andesite in the southern zone of the American Pacific claim set at the Strawberry Target has changed significantly.
