American Eagle Gold Completes NAK Drill Program, Updates on Copper-Gold Porphyry Discovery with Charlie Greig Interview

2022-12-19 04:04:29

Highlights:

  • Hole NAK22-01 returned 135 metres of 1.00% CuEq from surface within 851 metres of 0.37% CuEq (see Table 1 below) 
  • Hole NAK22-02 returned 301 metres of 0.61% CuEq from surface within 956 metres of 0.37% CuEq (see Table 2 below)
  • Mineralized footprint over 1.5km x 1.5km at surface; extends 1km to depth
  • All seven drill holes display mineralization throughout and end in mineralization; mineralization remains open in all directions
  • Assays for holes NAK22-03 and NAK22-04 are expected before the year-end, and results for holes 05 to 07 will be available in the New Year

TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2022 /CNW/ – American Eagle Gold Corp. (TSXV: AE) (“American Eagle” or the “Company“) has completed its 2022 drill program at the NAK Project (“NAK”) in west-central British Columbia. Results from the first two core holes were released on  November 7 and December 5, respectively. They confirmed that the broad NAK porphyry copper-gold system, previously drilled closer to surface, extends to depths close to 1 km.

As part of its ongoing work, American Eagle is pleased to present an interview with Charlie Greig, who advises American Eagle and whose consulting firm provides day-to-day technical support to the Company. Charlie was the recipient of PDAC’s 2022 Bill Dennis Award. The interview discusses aspects of the early success of the present NAK program, the Project’s “blue-sky” potential, and the proposed 2023 drill plan.

 

Update on NAK Holes NAK22-03 to -07

American Eagle expects to receive assay results for NAK22-03 and NAK22-04 before the year-end and results for holes 05 to 07 in the New Year.  Please see the link below for updated and detailed images of core from NAK’s 2022 drill program.

*Copper Equivalent (CuEq) % calculated using copper and gold length weighted assay results, with
commodity prices assumed at Cu = 3.50 USD/lb, Au = 1700 USD/oz, Ag = 20 USD/oz, and Mo = 21 USD/lb.
CuEq grade, including copper, gold, silver, and molybdenum based on 100% recoveries, is calculated
using the following equation:  CuEq. = Cu % + (Au grade in g/t  x [Au price
÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200]) + (Ag
grade in g/t x [Ag price
÷ 31] / [Cu price x 2200] + (Mo grade in %  x [Mo price x 22] / [Cu price x 2200]).
The assays have not been capped.

About American Eagle’s NAK Project

NAK is a classic porphyry copper-gold mineralized target that exhibits many signs of a robust and large-scale system. Historical shallow drilling programs defined a near-surface copper-gold system with a footprint greater than 1.5km x 1.5km. It remains open and largely untested at depth.

The NAK property is road accessible, and many target areas coincide with forest industry clear cuts. Drilling can be completed year-round, and no helicopter support is required. The NAK property is 85 kilometres from Smithers, BC, in the Babine copper-gold porphyry district of west-central British Columbia. It lies close to nearby Babine district past-producing mines (Bell, Granisle), in proximity to excellent infrastructure. NAK’s highly encouraging initial results make it a prime candidate for further exploration. The Company’s main objective is to advance this newly revitalized mineralizing system into a major discovery.
