Raymond, Alberta…American Creek Resources Ltd. is pleased to report the preliminary results of the 2007 exploration program on the Treaty Creek Project located in northwest British Columbia, Canada.

In March, 2007, American Creek Resources entered into a joint venture with Teuton Resources Corp. (TUO: TSX-V) for the controlling interest in the Treaty Creek property. American Creek was granted an option to earn a 51% interest by spending $5 million on exploration over three years with at least $1 million in exploration expenditures to be incurred in the first year. A further 9% interest (bringing the total interest to 60%) may be earned by funding a positive feasibility study.

The Treaty Creek property is not only adjacent to one of the largest undeveloped gold/copper projects in Canada, but appears to form part of the same highly mineralized trend line. The southern portion of the trend line, held by Seabridge Gold (SEA:TSX-V) and Silver Standard (SSO:TSX-V), contains bulk tonnage deposits hosting a combined inferred resource of approximately 19.6 million ounces of gold, 18 million ounces of silver and 4.95 billion pounds of copper. It is worth noting that these figures are from the 2006 exploration programs, and that they are expected to increase significantly with the ongoing release of results from the respective 2007 drill programs.

2007 Treaty Creek Drill Program

American Creek Resources completed a diamond drill program on the Treaty Creek property during August, September and October, drilling a total of 5,470 metres in 30 holes. All core was logged, split and sampled on site and was delivered to the EcoTech Laboratory field preparation facility in Stewart, BC. EcoTech personnel prepared the assay samples and forwarded them to the main EcoTech Laboratory in Kamloops for assay. The assays from a total of 17 holes have been received, the highlights of which are set out below. All intersections are presented as drill hole intercept width and are not necessarily true width.

Eureka Zone

The Eureka and ND zones have mineralization that appears to be similar to the gold/silver/copper bulk tonnage style Mitchell deposit (owned by Seabridge) immediately to the south of the Treaty Creek property. Historic intersections on the Eureka, including 0.757 g/t gold over 74.7 metres, 0.46 g/t gold over 169 metres, and 0.67 g/t gold over 72.3 metres, were expanded upon in the 2007 drill program because of the similarity to the Mitchell grades (average of 0.72 g/t gold).

Highlights of the 2007 drilling on the Eureka include a 75.45 metre intersection of 0.69 g/t gold with 2.89 g/t silver, an 18.40 metre intersection of 1.21 g/t gold with 4.62 g/t silver, and an 8.51 metre intersection of 0.33 g/t gold with 2,094.00 g/t silver and 0.378% copper (this hole was lost in heavy faulting and ended in mineralization). Assay results have been received for all six holes with significant intercepts presented below:

ND Zone

This zone, with similar geological structure as the Eureka, is a new showing discovered this summer. This mineralized outcrop was recently exposed as the glacier covering it continues to recede. Assay results for all five holes are pending.


Copper Belle Zone

The Copper Belle zone is another newly discovered outcrop that was recently exposed due to rapid glacial melting. The Copper Belle lies across the valley from the Eureka and ND zones and is one of the most promising new finds on the property. The adjacent area has historic high-grade discoveries including a trench sample taken in 1987 with 969 g/t gold over 1.2 metres. The Copper Belle rock is heavily mineralized with finely disseminated pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite and bornite. Highlights of the 2007 results received thus far include a 76.07 metre intersection of 0.93 g/t gold along with 8.78 g/t silver and 0.063% copper, a 46.23 metre intersection of 0.83 g/t gold along with 6.39 g/t silver and 0.041% copper, a 17.00 metre interval of 4.33 g/t gold with 2.00 g/t silver, a 65.00 metre interval of 0.81 g/t gold with 3.80 g/t silver, and a 30.18 metre interval with 1.32 g/t gold with 5.93 g/t silver and 0.093% copper. Results have been received for seven of ten holes. Significant intercepts are presented below:

The Copper Belle zone appears to be one of the most promising new discoveries in the Kerr-Sulphurettes region. Based on the 2007 drill results, a considerable amount of exploration will be focused on this zone in the 2008 season.

GR2 Zone

This area is approximately 1 kilometre northwest of the Copper Belle and carries similar key minerals. Surface samples have been heavily mineralized with massive galena and sphalerite, indicating silver, lead and zinc. Highlights of the 2007 drilling on the GR2 zone include 34.50 metres of 0.70 g/t gold with 25.83 g/t silver and 0.074% copper, 1.017% lead and 0.663% zinc as well as a 6.62 metre interval of 2.84 g/t gold with 66.26 g/t silver and 0.029% copper, 0.887% lead and 0.882% zinc. Results have been received for four of nine holes. Significant intercepts are presented below:

SUMMARY OF 2007 EXPLORATION RESULTS

Both the historical and current exploration conducted on the Treaty Creek property indicate the potential for mineralization patterns consistent with the world-class Seabridge / Silver Standard properties immediately to the south. Average grades for Seabridge’s Mitchell deposit are reported as 0.72 g/t gold and 0.23% copper. The results received thus far from the 2007 Treaty Creek exploration program show grades that appear similar to the Mitchell deposit and other deposits located in the Kerr-Sulphurettes system.

For more detailed information regarding the Treaty Creek Project please visit the Corporation’s website at www.americancreek.com.

In 2007 American Creek Resources undertook an aggressive exploration program, running three major projects. The Treaty Creek Project, the Electrum Project and the Tide Project all show the potential to host mineable grades of gold, silver and base metals. American Creek management is eagerly anticipating the receipt of the remaining assay results from all three projects. The exploration conducted this year is expected to produce the geological foundation leading to an even more promising 2008 season.


DRILLING CONTRACT

The Company also confirms that it has signed a three year drilling contract with More Core Diamond Drilling located in British Columbia. As part of the arrangement, More Core has purchased four of American Creek’s drills to be used exclusively on American Creek’s projects during the exploration season. Given the current shortage of drilling companies and equipment, having an experienced drilling company with new drills is a significant advantage in a competitive market.
