    • Strategic soil survey conducted between historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines on Black Diamond
    • More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t
    • Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t
    • Results are highly encouraging, company committed to further exploration

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its Geochemical Survey being conducted on its Black Diamond Property, located next to Freeport McMoRan’s open pit copper mines, and to provide details on recent diamond drilling completed on its patented Buckeye Project.

In efforts to unlock the potential of its Black Diamond Property, which borders the Porphyry Copper Mining District in Miami, Arizona, Northern Sphere has undertaken an intensive Geochemical Soil Survey over its 3,800-acre property culminating with a 35 Element Aqua Regia ICP-AES analysis.

In addition to using geochemical surveys and geologic, geophysical and outcrop sampling data, Northern Sphere is now employing “cutting-edge” Exploration Targeting Technologies to better and more precisely identify drilling targets. Such technologies use Hyperspectral Satellite Imaging in conjunction with ground geochemical data to re-compute existing geophysical survey data to depict more precise 3D signal locations.

Preliminary results from the first 250 geochemical samples analyzed are extremely encouraging. The strategic soil survey, which began near the historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines, demonstrated anomalous copper, zinc, and nickel values along with significantly anomalous (up to 344 g/t) silver values (see Figures 4 & 5). More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t (see Figure 3). Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t. A second set of 224 geochemical samples has been collected and shipped to ALS Laboratories for analysis.

During October, Northern Sphere personnel is focusing on geochemical grid sampling efforts on the documented copper anomalies located on the Black Diamond Property. An area of particular interest to Northern Sphere is a documented iron-copper-gold showing which had a Permit to Drill previously submitted to the Forestry Department.

Buckeye Patent – Diamond Drilling

Over the summer, Northern Sphere drilled 14 surface diamond drill holes on its patented Buckeye Project. The drilling targeted structures similar to those which apparently hosted sufficient quantities of silver to warrant extraction from the historic Buckeye Mine.

The drilling was successful in identifying anomalous silver values below several documented highgrade surface and underground showings. The drilling yielded anomalous silver below both the “Square Nail” shaft, and the former Buckeye Mine.

Thirteen of the fourteen holes drilled intercepted the perceived host structure up to 250 metres below the underground workings for a strike length of 400 metres. The width of the structure, and its corresponding alteration, varied between two and six metres. Of the14 holes drilled, 10 of such holes contained intercepts considered to be anomalous. The intercepts contained elevated silver and copper levels varying from 3 g/t to 179 g/t silver and upwards of 4,600 ppm copper. Table 1 depicts most of the noteworthy intercepts.

Combined with surface and underground samples, the diamond drilling has assisted in identifying four areas hosting anomalous to high grade silver (see Figure 5). The drilling results are encouraging and will assist with future drill targeting. Underground rehabilitation could provide better strategic diamond drilling platforms and would allow for the re-accessing of historic mineralized development.

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Receives Diamond Drilling Permit Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property Bathurst, New Brunswick

Posted by Er at 9:28 AM on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

 

 

  • Located 20 kilometres northwest of Bathurst
  • Multiple pathfinder minerals located ( gold, silver, zinc, lead and / or copper occurrences )
  • 500 metre drill program to test multiple base metal and silver bearing vein occurrences

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received a diamond drilling permit from the New Brunswick Dept. of Energy and Mines for its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located in northeast New Brunswick. 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.
