Cardston, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - November 4, 2019) - American Creek Resources Ltd. (TSXV: AMK) ("American Creek") is pleased to extend congratulations to Ken Konkin, PGeo, for his new role at Tudor Gold as Vice President for Project Development. Mr. Konkin was the exploration manager for the hugely successful 2019 drill program on our JV Treaty Creek property. The Treaty Creek property adjoins to the north of Pretium Resources' Brucejack-Snowfield property and Seabridge Gold's KSM property, along the geological trend. Drilling at Treaty Creek in 2019 was very successful under the direction of Mr. Konkin, hitting significant mineralization in all 14 holes which reconfirmed a 300m+ gold rich zone close to surface and an extension of mineralization to over one kilometer in depth.
Mr. Konkin has over 35 years of geological experience throughout North and South America as well as Russia. Mr. Konkin worked for Silver Standard for 19 years and managed advanced exploration programs at Manantial Espejo (Argentina), San Luis and Berenguela (Peru) as well as Snowfields (Pretium) in the Golden Triangle, British Columbia. Mr. Konkin was appointed the project manager for Pretium Resources after it purchased the Snowfields-Brucejack project from Silver Standard in 2010. Subsequently, he was instrumental in the discovery of the Valley of Kings deposit at the Brucejack Lake mine, an eight-million-ounce gold deposit currently in production. He spent seven years managing all aspects of the exploration programs at Snowfield-Brucejack. During his tenure with Pretium, the company received the Bill Dennis award in 2013 for a Canadian discovery (presented by the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada); Mr. Konkin was also the co-recipient of the prestigious H.H. "Spud" Huestis award for "excellence in prospecting and mineral exploration in B.C. and/or Yukon" in 2017.

The knowledge and experience he gained by discovering and developing the neighbouring Brucejack mine is being applied on Treaty Creek and it really shows. Ken clearly has the expertise and credibility to bring the Treaty Creek project to the next level. A world class project deserves a world class VP of Project Development."
