  • Completed 43-101 includes a mineral resource estimate (Inferred ) for the Jaclyn Main Zone, Golden Promise
  • Golden Promise hosts multiple gold bearing quartz veins and is located in a region of recent significant gold discoveries
  • significant gold discoveries in this region include those of Sokoman Iron Corp. (TSXV.SIC) at the Moosehead Project and Marathon Gold Corp. (TSXV.MOZ) at the Valentine Lake Gold Camp.

 

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 6, 2018 / GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSX-V: GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) announces that it has received and filed on SEDAR a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report, dated December 4, 2018 (revising a previous filed version dated November 28, 2018) (the “Report“) on the Company’s Golden Promise Gold Property, located in the central Newfoundland gold belt. The report was completed by Mr. Greg Z. Mosher, M.Sc. App., P.Geo., and Mr. Larry Pilgrim, B.Sc., P.Geo. The amendments in the December 4 version of the technical report principally relate to disclosure of QA/QC programs in Part 11 and data verification in Part 12. The material conclusions of both versions of the Report are the same.

The Report includes the following mineral resource estimate (Inferred resources) for the Jaclyn Main Zone, the maiden resource estimate for the Company on the property:

Resource Cutoff Au g/t Au Cap g/t Au Uncap g/t Tonnes Au Ounces Capped Au Ounces Uncapped
Total 1.1 9.3 10.4 357,500 106,400 119,900
Pit-Constrained 0.6 11.4 14.1 157,300 57,800 71,200
Underground 1.5 7.5 7.6 200,200 48,600 48,700

The Golden Promise Property hosts multiple gold bearing quartz veins and is located in a region of recent significant gold discoveries. The property is located within the Exploits Subzone of the Newfoundland Dunnage Zone. Within the Exploits Subzone, the property lies along the north-northwestern fringe of the Victoria Lake Supergroup (VLSG), a volcano-sedimentary terrane. The northwestern margin of the Golden Promise Property occurs proximal to, and, in part, contiguous with a major (Appalachian-scale) collisional boundary, and suture zone, known as the Red Indian Line (RIL). The RIL forms the western boundary of the Exploits Subzone. Recent significant gold discoveries in this region of the Exploits Subzone include those of Sokoman Iron Corp. (TSXV.SIC) at the Moosehead Project and Marathon Gold Corp. (TSXV.MOZ) at the Valentine Lake Gold Camp.

High-grade gold is reported in quartz veins and quartz vein boulders within the Golden Promise Property. Gold bearing quartz veins are reported in multiple areas of the property, including at least 5 gold bearing quartz vein systems reported in one zone referred to as the Jaclyn Zone, located in the northern half of the property. Much of the reported historical exploration within the property has been focused on the Jaclyn Zone with gold bearing vein systems reported at the Jaclyn Main, Jaclyn East, Jaclyn West, Jaclyn North and Jaclyn South Sub-zones. The majority of historic drilling (2002-2010) was conducted at the Jaclyn Main Zone. Significant historical work is also reported in the southwest region of the property at the Linda / Snow White vein, including grab sample reported to return 105 and 232 g/t gold, a reported channel sample returning 29.7 g/t gold / 0.5 meters, and a diamond drillhole intersection of 19.5 g/t gold / 1.15 meter core length. Gold bearing veins and gold bearing float are reported in other regions of the property.

The Report includes a mineral resource estimate for the Jaclyn Main Zone, the only area within the Property for which sufficient data exists to support a mineral resource estimate. The resource estimate was completed by Mr. Greg Z. Mosher, M.Sc. App., P.Geo.


(To view the full-sized image, please click here)

The current mineral resource estimate for the Jaclyn Main Zone is based on assays from 107 drillholes (2002 – 2010). The drill core from most of these holes has been preserved at a Provincial Government storage facility in Buchans, NL. As part of the data verification process prior to the resource estimate, core from five (5) holes, representing a range of contained gold grades and locations within the zone, were examined and six (6) quarter-core samples were collected from three of these holes for verification of the original assay values. The six check samples were assayed for gold in 2018 at ALS Canada in North Vancouver. The following table shows the comparison of original and check assay values.

Drill Hole From (m) To (m) Length (m) Original Au g/t Check Au g/t Sample #
GP02-09 47.6 48.3 0.7 1.4 1.455 CNF10434
GP02-09 48.3 48.7 0.4 1.0 0.005 CNF10435
GP06-51 153.5 153.8 0.3 14.1 25.1 CNF13676
GP06-51 153.8 154.2 0.4 9.4 4.27 CNF13677
GP07-74 181.0 181.5 0.5 5.2 1.79 CNF19937
GP07-74 181.5 182.0 0.5 2.4 0.083 CNF19938

Discrepancies between the original and check assays are attributable to the fact that 1) original and check samples were collected from different portions of the core; 2) the gold is particulate in nature and therefore a high degree of variability exists between the half-core and quarter-core samples; and 3) the original samples were assayed using screened metallics to capture any coarse particles of gold whereas the check samples were of too small a volume to permit the use of screening and therefore some gold particles may not have been captured by the analytical process.

Original assay certificates for approximately 60% of the Jaclyn Main Zone assays were checked against assay values in the dataset used for the mineral resource estimate and no discrepancies were found. The results of QA/QC monitoring of drill core samples submitted for analysis during the period 2004 – 2008 and 2010 – 2011, were compiled and assessed. These measures include use of standards, blanks and duplicate samples, although not all measures were employed in all programs. Regardless, all QA/QC metrics fall within acceptable limits.

The zone was modelled as a single quartz vein that strikes east-west and dips steeply to the south. Modelled vein thickness was based on true thickness derived from quartz vein intercepts. The estimate is based on 220 assays that were composited to 135 one-meter long composites. A bulk density of 2.7 g/cm3 was used. Blocks in the model measured 15 meters east-west, 1-meter north-south and 10 meters vertically. The block model was not rotated. Grades were interpolated using inverse-distance squared (ID2) weighting and a search ellipse that measured 100 meters along strike, two meters across strike and 50 meters vertically. Grades were interpolated based on a minimum of two and a maximum of 10 composites with a maximum of one composite per hole so the grade of each block is based on at least two drillholes thereby demonstrating continuity of mineralization. For the capped mineral resource estimate, all assays that exceed 65 g/t gold were capped at 65 g/t gold. All resources were classified as Inferred because of the relatively wide spacing of drill holes through most of the zone.

Because part of the vein is near surface the resource estimate was constrained by a conceptual open pit to demonstrate reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction. Generic mining costs of US$2.50/tonne and processing costs of US$25.00/tonne were used together with a gold price of US$1,300/ounce. A conceptual pit slope of 45° was assumed with no allowance for mining loss or dilution. Based on the combined hypothetical mining and processing costs and the assumed price of gold, a pit-constrained cutoff grade of 0.6 g/t was adopted. For the underground portion of the resource a cutoff of 1.5 g/t was assumed. The cutoff grade for the total resource is the weighted average of the pit-constrained and underground cutoff grades. The resource estimate for conceptual pit-constrained and underground at various gold cutoff grades and total resource estimate are tabulated as follows:

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Exploration Update on Its Kagoot Brook Cobalt Project $ANX.ca $MOZ.ca $LAB.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:49 AM on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.agoracom.com/public/companies/logos/564603/hub/GREATATLANTIC_LOGO_TESTER-e1480712241913.jpg

  • Historical work at Kagoot Brook has delineated two drainages, two kilometres apart, that exhibit remarkably high cobalt values up to 6,000 ppm in the silts
  • Recent silt sampling results has fully corroborated the existence and intensity of the cobalt mineralization
  • Significant occurrence of manganese and base metals (nickel, copper, lead and zinc) with the cobalt mineralization.

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSX.V: GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to provide this update in regard to its Kagoot Brook Cobalt project.

To view the graphic in its original size, please click here

Kagoot Brook Co-Mn-Base Metal Project, New Brunswick Historical work at Kagoot Brook has delineated two drainages, two kilometres apart, that exhibit remarkably high cobalt values up to 6,000 ppm in the silts (see Company news releases dated May 31 and February 14, 2018).  The recent results from a complementary silt sampling program has:

1)            Fully corroborated the existence and intensity of the cobalt mineralization; and

2)            Revealed a strong relationship and significant occurrence of manganese and base metals (nickel, copper, lead and zinc) with the cobalt mineralization.

The observed suite of elements and local geological units supports a ferromanganese marine environment indicating a strong affinity and trap for cobalt and base metals; a setting similar to the well-known ferromanganese stratiform mineralizing models around the world.

Of note:

1.  The amount of manganese and iron in the cobalt enriched silts, upwards to 4.1% and 26.7% respectively, indicates a prevalent source with size potential; and

2.  The relative percentage of the manganese to cobalt indicates a favourable high cobalt tenor (i.e. grade component).

As a result, Great Atlantic’s optionee has initiated a follow-up stream silt sampling program with tightly spaced sample stations to better frame the contact of the underlying target mineralized horizon.  In conjunction, a detailed magnetometer and very low frequency electromagnetic (“VLF-EM”) survey has been initiated to map the underlying stratigraphy to assist with the targeting.

Once these additional surveys have been completed and integrated with the historical work, a drill program is planned.

No drilling has ever been conducted and no source of the historic geochemical anomalies is known on the property.

Note(*): The surface rock grab and stream silt samples reported in this release are solely designed to show the presence or absence of mineralization and to characterize the mineralization.  Grab and silt samples are by definition selective and not intended to provide nor should be construed as a representative indication of grade or mineralization at the projects.

Option Agreement

The Kagoot Brook property is 100% owned by Great Atlantic and is subject to an underlying agreement with a Explorex Resources Inc. ( EX.v ).  Explorex is acquiring up to a 75% interest in the project. (See News Release dated February 14,2018)

Technical Information in this news release has been reviewed by David Martin, P Geo., a Qualified Person as that term is defined in NI 43-101.

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Completed Final Payment on Its 100% owned Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, Bathurst, New Brunswick

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

  • Final option payment for its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located near Bathurst, northeast New Brunswick
  • Seven vein occurrences with lead, zinc and +/- copper, silver and gold are reported in this region of the property
  • The Keymet Property is approximately 4 km north of the historic Nigadoo River Mine of which copper, lead, zinc and silver production from polymetallic veins occurred during the 1960s – 1970s.

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has made the final option payment for its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located near Bathurst, northeast New Brunswick. The property is reported to host numerous base metal – precious metal bearing veins including the historic Keymet Mine. The Company recently intersected mineralized veins northwest of the historic Keymet Mine including an intersection of 18.80% Zn, 3.55% Cu, 1.16 % Pb and 576 grams / tonne (g/t) Ag over 1.27 meters core length in a newly discovered vein and 3.54% Zn, 0.92% Cu and 115 g/t Ag over 12.05 meter core length plus 0.64 g/t Au over 19.96 meter core length in a newly discovered gold bearing zone (News Releases of December 20, 2017 and March 2, 2018). The Keymet Property is approximately 4 km north of the historic Nigadoo River Mine of which copper, lead, zinc and silver production from polymetallic veins occurred during the 1960s – 1970s.

The Company’s focus since acquiring the Keymet Property has been the northwest region of the property. At least seven vein occurrences with lead, zinc and +/- copper, silver and gold are reported in this region of the property in addition to the polymetallic veins reported at the historic Keymet Mine (source: New Brunswick Dept. of Energy and Resource Development Mineral Occurrence Database). The Keymet Mine operated during the mid-1950s, producing copper, lead, zinc and silver.  Production at this mine was terminated due to a fire at the site.

Great Atlantic has explored two of these vein occurrences, the Elmtree 12 and Elmtree Silver Mine veins and adjacent areas, northwest of the historic Keymet Mine. A 20 meter deep shaft is reported at the Elmtree Silver Mine vein. A Qualified Person has located this shaft for Great Atlantic. Great Atlantic has intersected copper, lead, zinc and silver bearing veins at both the Elmtree 12 and Elmtree Silver Mine vein occurrences during 2015 and 2017 diamond drilling programs (9 total holes) with more significant results at the Elmtree 12 vein occurrence. Trenching at the Elmtree 12 vein occurrence also exposed such polymetallic veins. Gold mineralization was also locally intersected in host meta-sedimentary rocks in the general area of the Elmtree 12 vein occurrence. Highlights of this work included (as reported in News Releases of October 29, 2015, February 23, 2016, December 20, 2017 and March 2, 2018):

A Qualified Person has verified this 2015 and 2017 exploration data for Great Atlantic. The Qualified Person managed the 2015 and 2017 exploration programs for Great Atlantic at the Keymet Property. True thickness of these intersections is unknown at this time.

Diamond drilling to date by the Company has been shallow with all but one hole less than 100 meter vertical depth and one hole to approximately 170 meter vertical depth. Planned 2018 diamond drilling will test both the Elmtree 12 vein system and newly discovered vein in Ky-17-8 along strike and at depth. -Drilling is also planned to test the continuation of the newly discovered gold zone intersected in hole Ky-17-6.

Arsenopyrite bearing metasediment boulder samples collected by Company prospectors in 2011 approximately 1.5 km northwest of the historic Keymet Mine were reported to return up to 51 g/t Au (News Release of March 2, 2012). A Qualified Person has not verified this sample data. This is the general area of the Elmtree 12 vein occurrence.

Additional gold occurrences are reported within the Keymet Property as per the New Brunswick Dept. of Energy and Resource Development Mineral Occurrence Database.  Two of these gold occurrences are reported in the east region of the Keymet Property.  Another gold occurrence, referred to as the Alcida East occurrence, is reported in the west region of the property. Historic samples from the Alcida East occurrence are reported up to 4.3 g/t Au. Two additional gold occurrences are reported near the west boundary of the property, possibly being west of the Keymet Property. A Qualified Person has not verified any of these gold occurrences. The Company’s focus to data has been the northwest area of the property, northwest of the historic Keymet Mine

Significant precious metal – base metals deposits are reported within 4 km of the Keymet Property. The Elmtree gold deposits are located within 3 km west-southwest of the Keymet Property. A historic mineral resource estimate for the Elmtree gold deposits was reported in 2011 with 294,000 ounces of gold in the indicated + inferred categories reported (0.5 g/t Au cutoff) (source: Murahwi, et al., effective date March 4, 2011 for Micon International Limited, CNRP Mining Inc. and Gorilla Resources Corp.).

The historic Nigadoo River Mine is located approximately 4 km south of the Keymet Property. Polymetallic massive sulfide veins were mined at the Nigadoo River Mine during the 1960s and 1970s with copper, lead, zinc and silver being produced. The N.B Dept. of Energy and Resource Development Mineral Occurrence Database reports shaft depth and production totals at this historic mine. Production during 1967 – 1971 is reported as 1.126 million tonnes at 2.2% Pb, 2.1% Zn, 0.24% Cu and 92.57 g/t Ag. Production during 1973 – 1977 (after a 2 year closure) is reported to be 0.733 million tonnes (only partial metal grades reported). The shaft is reported to at least 470 meter depth.

Readers are warned that mineralization at the Elmtree gold deposits and historic Nigadoo Brook Mine is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Keymet Property.

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received initial analytical results for rock samples collected during a recent trenching program at its Pilley’s Island Base Metal – Precious Metal Property, located in north-central Newfoundland. The exploration program was jointly operated with option partner Unity Resources. Rock grab samples collected from the trenches returned up to 27.5% Zn, 20.0% Pb, 8.36% Cu and 63.4 g/t Ag. Great Atlantic and Unity Resources are planning a diamond drilling program on the property to commence in late November. The property hosts an historic copper mine along with several zinc, lead, copper (+ / – gold, silver) occurrences.

 

 

One area of recent trenching was the Bull Road showing. Previous historic work included trenching and drilling with 7 holes sunk on the showing. Reported historic trench samples at Bull Road include 12.42% Zn, 3.87% Cu, 0.95% Pb and 0.71 oz./ton Ag over 4.6m. One historic drill hole at this showing was reported to intersect 22.2% Zn, 4.4% Pb, 0.1% Cu and 0.96 oz./ton Ag over 0.65m core length within an intersection of 7.85m grading 0.66% Cu, 0.51% Pb, 3.41% Zn and 0.34 oz./ton Ag. The recent trenching program included re-opening and re-evaluating the historic Bull Road Showing.

 

Trenching along the trace of the Bull Road Showing exposed mineralization over a length of 130m with a width varying between 1-7m.

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Drills Keymet Base Metal Project, Newfoundland

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

  • Keymet is a past producing Pollymetallic property
  • Hole Ky-17-6 included 50M of arsenopyrite which has traditionally carried gold at Keymet
  • Pollymetallic mines are the most sought after Base Metal projects due to presence of multiple ore types

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has completed a diamond drilling program at its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located near Bathurst, northeast New Brunswick. The Keymet property hosts multiple gold, silver, zinc, lead and / or copper occurrences and the Keymet deposit, site of the historic Keymet Mine. The drilling program (5 holes totalling 679 meters) was conducted in the northwest region of the property, northwest of the historic Keymet Mine.

 

“We are very encourage at this year’s drill program and are enthusiastically awaiting all the results but particularly interested in the unexpected arsenopyrite within a 50 meter core length interval in hole Ky-17-6, traditionally arsenopyrite has carried Gold on this property.  As well we want to say a special thanks to Don and the guys at Orbit Garant Drilling, excellent job “Says: Christopher R Anderson CEO

The program tested the continuation of zinc, copper and silver bearing veins and a gold mineralization intersected by Great Atlantic during 2015 diamond drilling and trenching programs. All five holes intersected veins hosting base metal sulfides while three holes also intersected arsenopyrite mineralization. Gold mineralization on the property is associated with arsenopyrite.  The Company is conducting systematic sampling of mineralized drill core from the recent program.

 

Gold bearing boulders (samples up to 51 grams / tonne (g/t) Au) and gold bearing bedrock in trenches and drill core have been discovered by Great Atlantic in the northwest region of the property. Great Atlantic drilled two holes in 2015 at one site in this region (Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4), approximately 1.4 kilometers of the historic Keymet Mine, in an area referred to as the Elmtree 12 occurrence. Both 2015 holes intersected base metal and silver bearing veins (including 16.68% zinc, 1.11% copper and 152.0 g/t silver over 1.80 metre core length in Ky-15-3 and 8.68% zinc and 44.8 g/t silver Ag over 4.28 metre core length in Ky-15-4). Hole Ky-15-3 also intersected a gold bearing interval (3.28 g/t Au over 2.1 meter core length). The true width of these initial 2015 drill intersections is unknown at this time. The recent drilling tested the continuation of this base metal and precious metal mineralization.

Each of the 2017 drill holes intersected veins with copper, lead and zinc sulfide mineralization. Arsenopyrite mineralization has been observed in three of these holes. Gold mineralization in boulders and bedrock in this area is associated with arsenopyrite.

 

Holes Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9 of the recent program were drilled in the same area as 2015 holes Ky-15-3 and 4. Each of these four holes intersected base metal bearing veins. Company management are interpreting the main veins to be within a steep dipping to vertical vein system to strike approximately north – south, with all Great Atlantic drill intersections to date being within an approximately 70 meter strike length and shallow (above 100 meter vertical depth).  Hole Ky-17-6 intersected local arsenopyrite within an approximate 50 meter core length interval appearing to be east to northeast of the main base metal bearing vein zone.  Holes Ky-17-5 and 7 also intersected local arsenopyrite.

Hole Ky-17-8, located approximately 80 meters southwest of holes Ky-17-5, 6 and 7, tested the down-dip extension of a gold bearing zone discovered by the Company in a 2015 trench (channel samples returning 1.1 g/t Au over 4.9 meters). The gold bearing zone in the trench is characterized by minor arsenopyrite in metasediments and increased quartz veining. A fault zone is also exposed in the trench hosting base metal and silver mineralization (2015 grab sample returned 8.99% lead, 1.76% zinc, 0.80% copper and 237 g/t silver). Arsenopyrite is not apparent in Ky-17-8 drill core. However quartz veining was intersected under the trench gold zone. The hole also intersected veins with base metal sulfides approximately vertically under the trench fault zone.

 

Closed-spaced 1980s diamond drill holes (Brunswick Mining and Smelting and Aurtec Inc.) in the area of holes Ky-15-3, 4, Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9 intersected near-surface mineralized veins (Elmtree 12 vein occurrence). A 0.88 metre core length interval from a 1981 drill hole was reported to grade 7.72% Cu, 11.36% Zn an 13.6 ounces per ton Ag. A 1.22 metre core length sample from a near-by 1989 drill hole was reported to assay 16.4% Cu, 10.11% Zn and 31.0 ounces per ton Ag. The true width of these intersections is unknown. These drill intersections are within 50 metre vertical depth. Great Atlantic personnel found loose casing in this area during 2015. It is uncertain which historic hole this represents.

 

Access to the property is excellent with paved roads transecting the property, including a provincial highway. The property covers an area of approximately 3,400 hectares.

Multiple base metal and silver bearing vein occurrences are reported in this region, including the past producing Keymet Mine which operated during the 1950s. Gold bearing boulders and gold bearing bedrock in trenches have been discovered by Great Atlantic in this area. Great Atlantic drilled two holes in 2015 (Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4), approximately 1.4 kilometers north west of the historic Keymet Mine in an area referred to as the Elmtree 12 occurrence. The 2015 holes intersected base metal and silver bearing veins and a gold bearing interval. Drilling will test the continuation of this base and precious metal mineralization.

 

Both Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4 were drilled from the same set-up to the northeast approximately under a mineralized vein exposed in a previous 2015 trench. Ky-15-3 was drilled at a 45-degree angle and intersected sphalerite – rich veins at 60.80 – 62.60 metres (returning 16.68% zinc, 1.11% copper and 152.0 g/t silver over a 1.80 metre core length). Ky-15-4 was drilled at a 60-degree dip on the same azimuth to intersect the veins deeper. Multiple sphalerite bearing veins were intersected in this hole at 90.07 – 94.35 metres (returning 8.68% zinc and 44.8 g/t silver over 4.28 metre core length), approximately 35 metres vertically under the main vein intersected in Ky-15-3. Hole Ky-15-3 also intersected a gold bearing interval, with a sample at 30.10 – 32.20 meters (2.1-meter core length) returning 3.28 g/t gold. The true width of these initial 2015 drill intersections is unknown at this time.

 

Drill holes are planned on either side of holes Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4 to test the continuation of the zinc, copper and silver bearing veins along strike and to test the continuation of the gold bearing zone intersected in Ky-15-3.

The Company is planning drilling beginning in mid-September in the northwest region of the property. The Keymet property, located approximately 20 kilometres northwest of Bathurst, hosts multiple gold, silver, zinc, lead and / or copper occurrences including the Keymet deposit, site of the historic Keymet Mine. Drilling will further test an area of reported zinc, lead, copper and silver bearing vein(s) including 2015 Great Atlantic drill intersections (16.7 % zinc and 152 g/t silver over 1.8 meter core length and 8.7% zinc over 4.28 meter core length) and a near-by gold bearing zone discovered by the Company in a 2015 trench (1.1 g/t gold over 4.9 meters in channel sampling).

The drilling program is planned for the northwest region of the Keymet Property, a priority area for the Company. The program will be a minimum of 500 metres. Multiple base metal and silver bearing vein occurrences are reported in this region, including the historic Keymet Mine which operated during the 1950s. The drilling program will further test one of these vein occurrences, referred to as the Elmtree 12 vein occurrences. Gold bearing boulders and gold bearing zones in trench bedrock are also documented in this region of the property. The drilling program will test one such gold zone.

The Elmtree 12 base metal and silver bearing vein occurrence is located approximately 1.4 kilometres northwest of the historic Keymet Mine. Closed-spaced 1980s diamond drill holes (Brunswick Mining and Smelting and Aurtec Inc.) intersected near-surface mineralized veins in this area. A 0.88 metre core length interval from a 1981 drill hole was reported to grade 7.72% Cu, 11.36% Zn and 13.6 ounces per ton Ag. A 1.22 metre core length sample from a near-by 1989 drill hole was reported to assay 16.4% Cu, 10.11% Zn and 31.0 ounces per ton Ag. The true width of these intersections is unknown. These drill intersections are within 50 metre vertical depth. During 2015, Great Atlantic conducted trenching in the area of these reported 1980s drill holes. One trench exposed a northwest striking mineralized vein approximately above the reported 1980s drill intersections. A 0.5 metre channel samples across the vein returned 1.52% zinc, 1.94% copper and 308 g/t silver.

 

During 2015 Great Atlantic drilled two holes (Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4) in the area of the 2015 trench and the 1980s holes. These holes were also collared within a zone of gold bearing silicified sedimentary boulders previously discovered by the Company (boulder assays reported up to 51 grams per tonne Au.). The zone of gold-bearing boulders extends west of these two holes in the reported up-ice glacial direction. Both holes intersected base metal and silver bearing veins and local gold mineralization.

Both Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4 were drilled from the same set-up to the northeast (050 degree azimuth) approximately under the previous 2015 trench and from the opposite direction as the reported 1980s holes. Ky-15-3 was drilled at a 45 degree angle and intersected sphalerite – rich veins at 60.80 – 62.60 metres (returning 16.68% zinc, 1.11% copper and 152.0 g/t silver over a 1.80 metre core length). Ky-15-4 was drilled at a 60 degree dip on the same azimuth to intersect the veins deeper. Multiple sphalerite bearing veins were intersected in this hole at 90.07 – 94.35 metres (returning 8.68% zinc and 44.8 g/t silver Ag over 4.28 metre core length), approximately 35 metres vertically under the main vein intersected in Ky-15-3. Hole Ky-15-3 intersected a gold bearing interval, with a sample at 30.10 – 32.20 meters (2.1 meter core length) returning 3.28 g/t gold. The true width of these initial 2015 drill intersections is unknown at this time.

 

Drilling is planned during September 2017 on either side of holes Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4 testing the continuation of the zinc, copper and silver bearing veins along strike and testing the continuation of the gold bearing zone intersected in Ky-15-3.

 

Drilling is also planned during the September program under a gold bearing zone exposed during a 2015 trench southwest of holes Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4. Channel samples from a zone of altered sediments returned 1.11 g/t gold over a 4.9 metre total length. The channel samples were orientated east-west parallel to the trench direction. The orientation of this gold bearing zone has not been determined. This gold bearing zone is approximately 80 metres southwest of the collars of holes Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4.
