Raymond, Alberta… American Creek Resources Ltd. (the “Corporation”) is pleased to report that it has successfully completed the 2009 Treaty Creek drill program. An aggregate total of 9,519.5 meters of diamond drilling occurred in four separate zones: the Eureka, Copper Belle, GR2 and Treaty Ridge.
Core logging, cutting and sampling took place on site and all core samples have now been submitted to Eco-Tech Laboratories for assay.
As previously announced, all requirements regarding the 51% earn-in under the terms of the option agreement with Teuton Resources Corp. (TUO: TSX-V) (“Teuton”) for the controlling interest in the Treaty Creek Project have been met.
In 2007, American Creek Resources entered into an option agreement with Teuton for the controlling interest in the Treaty Creek property. American Creek was granted the right to earn a 51% interest by spending $5 million on exploration over a period of three years. In addition, a further 9% interest (bringing American Creek’s total interest to 60%) may be earned by funding a positive feasibility study. American Creek is the operator of the project.
