ArcPacific Expands Blackdome Property Size and Reports Historic Gold Samples

Vancouver, BC – ArcPacific Resources Corp. (“ACP” or the "Company”) (TSX-V: ACP) is pleased to report that it has acquired five additional mineral claims contiguous to the recently-optioned Blackdome property (the “Property”) located in the Clinton Mining Division, approx. 120 kilometres southwest of the City of Williams Lake. This significantly increases the total Property size which now covers 3,479 Hectares.

The Company is also pleased to provide an update in regards to the ongoing data compilation program on the Property. The Property has been explored since 1980’s by individual prospectors and companies such as Inco Exploration, this work has resulted in the discovery of multiple mineralized zones as outlined below in Figure 1, but has never been drilled. The historic exploration on the Property indicates that the gold-silver mineralization is primarily hosted in quartz veins, of unknown width, sub-cropping over an area of approximately 1300 by 700 metres. Quartz veins have typical low sulfidation, banded, vuggy, bladed and chalcedonic epithermal textures and assay up to 54.43 g/t Au and 35 g/t Ag.

The Blackdome property is underlined by Cretaceous Power Creek Volcanics and sediments belonging to Tylor Creek. These two units were intruded by hornblende Feldspar porphyries (HFP). Gold-silver mineralization identified in the Blackdome property appears to be associated with intrusions that possibly served as a “conduit” for the hydrothermal mineralization.

The next stage of exploration will concentrate on testing the known mineral occurrences through trenching, regional and property scale MT geophysical survey, followed by drilling.
