VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Pacific Mining Corp (CSE: USGD / OTCQB: USGDF / FWB: 1QC) (“American Pacific” or “the Company”) is pleased to report that it has mobilized a drill in preparation for an initial drill program at its Gooseberry Silver-Gold project in Nevada, USA.

The initial 3,500 to 4,000 metre, 15-hole program will focus on diamond drilling to test known mineralized zones, including lateral and down-dip extensions to some of the higher-grade mineralization that was encountered during mining throughout the 1900’s.

“We are very pleased to begin our first drill program at Gooseberry, a project known for very high-grade, mineable silver and gold mineralization,” stated American Pacific President, Eric Saderholm. “We will accelerate the program with a second drill rig based on the success in our initial drill holes. Gooseberry is located in the Ramsey Mining District, which is known for the historic and famous high-grade gold and silver mines of the Comstock Lode. This is a great opportunity for American Pacific.”

About Gooseberry

Gooseberry is a low sulphidation, epithermal vein system encompassing the historical Gooseberry silver-gold mine in Storey County, Nevada. The past-producing underground silver and gold mine operated for nearly a century between 1900 and 1990, after which mining ceased due to low precious metals prices. No meaningful modern exploration work has been done on the project since 1991. The Company owns an undivided 100% interest with no underlying royalties and previously sampled up to 18.45 g/t Au and 595 g/t Ag from the dumps and old mineralized stockpiles at Gooseberry (see press release dated June 5, 2019).
