Toronto, Ontario – August 22, 2022 – American Eagle Gold Corp. (AE: TSXV) ("American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at its NAK Copper-Gold Porphyry project ("NAK") located northeast of Smithers, British Columbia.
About NAK's Drill Program
NAK is a classic porphyry target exhibiting many signs of a robust copper-gold system. Previous owners partially defined a large shallow copper-gold mineralization that is open in all directions. Reinterpretation of historical ZTEM, IP, magnetics, soil geochemistry, and drilling data defined several compelling and untested exploration targets, which will be tested by 4-6 vertical holes of approximately 800 metres in length.
Previous drilling has intersected wide intervals of copper-gold mineralization, including DH95-15, which returned a grade of 0.35% Cu and 0.645g/t Au over a width of 168.5 metres starting 5.5 metres from the surface (see table for historical drill results). The Company believes the key to advancing the NAK project will be to extend existing mineralization to depth.
About the NAK Project
NAK is in the Babine Copper-Gold Porphyry District of British Columbia (click here to view) and is a classic porphyry target that exhibits all the signs of a large copper-gold system. Copper-gold porphyry mineralization at NAK is open in all directions and is defined by a compelling geophysical signature analogous to Newcrest's Red Chris Mine and Newmont's Saddle deposit located in Northwest BC.
