American Sierra Gold has acquired six mining claims in the Adams Plateau area of southern British Columbia, Canada.

Company president James Vandeberg said the technical reports prepared by Corporation Falconbridge Copper indicate the need for further exploration in British Columbia.

The region has high content of volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits.

Meanwhile, the US-based company has abandoned the Urique project in Mexico and the Discovery Day gold project in California in order to focus on priority projects.
