American Pacific Mining Provides Drilling Update and Releases New CSAMT Data Highlighting New Vein Targets at the Tuscarora Project, Elko County, Nevada

High-grade gold in the Minto mine deposit

As part of its ongoing drilling at the Surluga South exploration target, Red Pine is testing strategic resource gaps in the Minto mine deposit. In hole SD-22-373, located in an opening approximately 25 meters wide in the current resources of the Minto deposit, we discovered additional high-grade gold mineralization in the Minto Mine shear zone. The results of SD-22-373, combined with those of SD-21-298A (announced September 2, 2021), indicate that the Minto Mine deposit has the potential to host zones of high-grade gold mineralization.

Discovery of gold mineralization in the Jubilee Shear Zone south of the Parkhill Fault – Figure 2

“While we continue to focus on expanding the Surluga and Minto Mine South resources, a third drill rig has conducted more in-depth regional exploration of the property, particularly south of the Parkhill fault (Figure xx). We have demonstrated with success that a large gold system exists at the Wawa gold project which now extends to a strike length of >6 km. Gold mineralization exists in several structures south of the Parkhill fault and we will now use what we have learned from the Surluga resource to identify areas of material gold grades and thicknesses.As an example, visible gold was intersected in the Jubilee shear south of the Parkhill fault in hole JS-22-368 , proving to our teams the understanding of this vast gold system (analysis in progress)” – Quentin Yarie, President and CEO of Red Pine Exploration.

Other exploration results

Drilling from Red Pine confirmed the presence of gold mineralization in some of the deformation domains that form the Jubilee Shear Zone south of the Parkhill Fault, opening up this underexplored segment of the structure for further exploration (Table 2) .

Darwin Grace-Nyman gold system: Confirmation of mineralization in the Grace shear zone 300 meters south of the vertical shaft of the Darwin-Grace mine

In the Darwin-Grace area, hole DG-22-349 extends gold mineralization in the Grace shear zone 300 m southeast of the vertical shaft of the Darwin-Grace mine (Table 3). Being the southernmost drill hole ever completed in the Grace Shear Zone, DG-22-349 shows that mineralization in the Grace Shear System remains open to the south. Red Pine’s 2022 Phase 1 exploration program confirmed the presence of gold mineralization along the Grace Shear Zone over a total strike length of 650 meters (announced March 16 e 2022).

North Surluga Vein Network

Holes SD-22-352 and SD-22-330 extended the footprints of the North Surluga vein system (Table 4). The intersection in SD-22-352 is located 120 meters east of the Surluga North Vein network intersection in SD-22-326 (refer to news release dated April 19, 2022).

Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) Measures

The drill core samples were transported in sealed security bags for analysis at Actlabs in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples were labelled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples were then placed in durable rice bags and then shipped. Residual coarse reject portions of samples remain in storage should further work or verification be required.

Red Pine has a quality control program in place to comply with best practices in drill core sampling and analysis. As part of its QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples in addition to random standards, blanks and duplicates.
