American Pacific Mining Corp. (USGD:CSE;USGDF:OTCPK) intends to expand its Tuscarora gold project in Elko, Nevada, beyond the South Navajo vein to an additional 13 or so previously mined targets identified during historical work. "These vein sets and stockworks will be a main focus in our exploration efforts moving forward," said American Pacific Mining President Eric Saderholm. "This is the upside of the Tuscarora property," which is located northeast of Nevada's Carlin trend, southwest of the Jerritt Canyon deposit and east-northeast of the Midas deposit.
Listed by geographical location, from west to east, the targets to be further explored include: Battle Hill, Modoc Hill, Silica, Kings Pinto, Navajo Hill, Navajo North and South, Revenue, Schoolhouse, Independence, DuFreese, Grand Prize and East Pediment. "All of these veins, or vein clusters, project into the pediment with fewer than 10 drill holes to test them aside from the South Navajo vein," Saderholm said.
In late June, American Pacific released the initial assays from the first drilling phase at Tuscarora. It should announce results for the remaining 11, Phase 1 holes soon.
