Toronto, Ontario – August 26, 2021 – American Eagle Gold Corp. (TSXV: AE) ("American Eagle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed and interpreted its seismic survey on the Golden Gate Property. It has also defined potential drill targets and filed Notices of Intent with the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") to drill on Golden Gate.
Permitting and Drill Program Update
The Company's maiden drill program on American Eagle's Golden Gate will begin in the fall of 2021. The drill program will focus on intersecting lower plate rocks and discovering the buried Carlin-type deposits that American Eagle Gold believes to exist on the Golden Gate property.
Drill Targets via Promising Seismic Results (link here)
The 2D seismic survey over the Golden Gate project was completed in July, and the data for seismic lines have been processed and interpreted. Reflectance profiles on the northern line show evidence of low-angle (thrust) west-dipping structures with associated hanging-wall folding, a structural setting typical of Carlin-type systems in the Cortez district. In addition, strong deformation is apparent to at least 700m depth in the seismic profile.
These are promising results, particularly when combined with the Golden Gates recently completed Controlled Source Audio-frequency Magnetotelluric ("CSAMT") results, demonstrating potential for lower-plate carbonate rocks as close to 350m to surface.
CRUX Investor Profile on American Eagle Gold (link here)
CRUX Investor recently published an article about American Eagle Gold, highlighting the prospective opportunity at Golden Gate and why American Eagle Gold's value proposition is intriguing compared to other miners in the area. The first key is the geologist in charge of finding the deposit, Mark Bradley, a renowned expert in underground Carlin Type deposits. The second is the proximity of the property next door and on-trend with Barrick's Cortez Hills and Goldrush mines.
