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

Posted by Er 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.

Vein containing zinc and lead sulfide mineralization in hole Ky-17-8

 

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.

    • 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.

  • Drill Permits cover 10,000m of drilling
  • Allows for up to 40 drill sites
  • Drilling targeting Silver & Copper mineralization

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GLI) (“Glacier” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has been granted permit approval by the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines for drilling and trenching activities on the company’s flagship Silver Vista copper-silver project, located near Smithers, British Columbia. The Mines Act Permit (MX-1-987) allows for up to 40 drill sites, 10,000 meters of drilling and 10 trench/pit sites, over a 5 (five) year period. The objective of the drilling program is to verify and expand the copper-silver mineralization intersected in the 1991 and 1992 historical drilling programs. Equity Silver Mines Limited completed fourteen drill holes (1992) totaling 1,252.5 metres. Equity identified a semi-continuous zone 300 metres long by 50 metres wide by 3 to 150 metres deep with two of the holes ending in mineralization. Key intercepts include: MR91-01 – 32.87 metres at 0.19% Cu and 34.8 gpt Ag, MR91-03 – 61.91 metres at 0.11% Cu and 40.5 gpt Ag, MR91-04 – 25.9 metres at 0.08% Cu and 62.6 gpt Ag and MR92-02 – 36.58 metres at 0.49% Cu and 26.8 gpt Ag. Hole MR92-02 intersected a higher-grade intersection of 2.84 meters averaged 195.7 g/t Ag and 3.65 % Cu at a depth of 192.62 meters, and this represents the only deep hole to test this zone, and is a primary drill target for follow-up.

 

Glacier Lake Resources Inc. has yet to verify the Equity exploration date. Data verification is one of the primary objectives of this drilling program.

 

“We look forward to commencing the first drill program on the Silver Vista since 1992″ said Saf Dhillon, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The focus of this fall’s campaign will be to confirm and expand the higher-grade mineralization intersected in hole 92-02 and to test the potential of the large silver-in-soil geochemical anomaly, measuring 1.5 by 2.0 kilometers.”

 

Further details can be found in the recently completed 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.

Eloro $ELO.ca Resources receives drill permit at La Victoria $TTC.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:15 AM on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Image result for eloro resources

  • Received its permiso para inicio de las actividades de exploracion (drilling permit) 
  • Authorizes the drilling of up to 10 sites within the Rufina zone of the La Victoria gold/silver project, Pallasca province, Ancash department, Peru

ELORO RESOURCES RECEIVES DRILLING PERMIT FOR THE LA VICTORIA GOLD/SILVER PROJECT DRILL PROGRAM

Eloro Resources Ltd.’s wholly owned Peruvian subsidiary Compania Minera Eloro Peru SAC has received its permiso para inicio de las actividades de exploracion (drilling permit) that authorizes the drilling of up to 10 sites within the Rufina zone of the La Victoria gold/silver project, Pallasca province, Ancash department, Peru.

The Drilling Permit is the final requirement to obtain the water permit. The ANA (Peru Water Authority) has already carried out its Property inspection and is now reviewing Eloro’s application. In the meantime, field crews are now proceeding with preparation of the approved drill sites and carrying out improvements to the existing public trail system.

“We are delighted to be on the verge of drilling the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project’s Rufina zone”, said CEO Thomas G. Larsen, “This zone has never been drill-tested even though significant gold mineralization outcrops at surface. Our fall 2016 IP/Res survey identified a large spatially-correlated chargeability and resistivity area beneath the Rufina zone which also will be tested.”

Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo., Chief Technical Advisor for Eloro commented: “Recent geological work indicates that the mineralized target zone in Victoria-Victoria South which is up to 200 metres wide extends south for at least 2 kilometres along strike and likely connects with the Rufina zone. This is part of an extensive multi-phase epithermal gold-silver mineralizing system on the La Victoria property centred around the Puca Fault and environs (see press release August 8, 2017). We plan to carry out an aggressive drill program at Rufina while at the same time proceeding with drill permit applications for the other major target areas.”

The Rufina zone is located within the district of Huandoval where Eloro has good social support. District authorities are also favourable to economic development in partnership with the mineral exploration industry. Eloro currently has 14 Huandoval employees working for the IP/Res survey operating within the new Victoria-Victoria South discovery area.

With the award of an option to earn 25% of the Property to EHR Resources Ltd (ASX:EHX) through its Peruvian subsidiary EHR del Peru S.A.C., Eloro is fully financed to carry out the drilling at Rufina. A contract has been signed with Energold Drilling Peru S.A.C., for up to 5000 metres of NTW diamond drilling. The portable drill rig employed by Energold can be readily moved by existing public trails and requires only minimal drill pad preparation.”

About Eloro Resources Ltd.

Eloro is an exploration and mine development company with a portfolio of gold and base-metal properties in Peru and Quebec. Eloro owns a 100% interest in the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project, located in the North-Central Mineral Belt of Peru some 50 km south of Barrick’s Lagunas Norte Gold Mine and Tahoe’s La Arena Gold Mine. The Property consists of eight mining concessions and eight mining claims encompassing approximately 89 square kilometres. The Property has good infrastructure with access to road, water and electricity and is located at an altitude that ranges from 3,100 m to 4,200 m above sea level.

Image result for Great Atlantic GR

  • Six gold bearing quartz vein zones are located in the central region, “The JaclynZone”
  • Sampling program confirmed gold mineralization outcrop in four quartz vein “Outcrops”
  • Samples from three different areas exceeded 1 oz. / ton gold

VANCOUVER, BC / August 28, 2017 / GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received gold analytical results for rock samples collected during May and June at its Golden Promise Gold Property in central Newfoundland. Rock samples were collected in multiple areas within the property, being the initial work in a budgeted 2017 exploration program on the property. The rock sampling program confirmed gold mineralization in quartz vein boulders or outcrop in four areas. Four quartz vein samples from three different areas exceeded 1 oz. / ton gold (34.2857 grams / tonne or g/t Au), including a boulder sample returning a high value of 200 g/t Au (5.8 oz. / ton Au). Trenching has since been completed in one of these areas referred to as the Jaclyn North Zone with analyses pending for rock samples. The Golden Promise Gold Property has been expanded to the current approximate 16,500 hectares.

The Golden Promise Property hosts multiple gold-bearing quartz veins and gold-bearing float boulders. The majority of historic work is reported at the Jaclyn Main Zone in the northern region of the property. A National Instrument (NI) 43-101 compliant inferred resource of 921,000 tonnes at an average grade of 3.02 g/t Au (89,500 ounces contained gold) was reported in 2008 for the Jaclyn Main Zone. Gold recovery from a 2,241 tonne bulk sample collected in 2010 at the Jaclyn Main Zone was reported to average 4.47 g/t Au. The average tails grade for the sample was reported to be 1.12 g/t Au. A “back-calculated head grade of 5.59 g/t Au” was reported for the bulk sample. The Jaclyn Main Zone has been reportedly traced for a strike length of approximately 800 meters (northeast to east striking) through trenching and diamond drilling to approximately 420 meters vertical depth.

The Phase I drilling program aimed to delineate the COD vein in the Gold Drop Southwest zone from 5 pad locations along the North-south trench.  The drilling tested the vein along 80 meters of strike length. The drilling commenced south of the C.O.D. mine shaft and progressed systematically to the north.  The Phase I drilling totaled 15 holes (691 meters). The objective of the drilling was to determine depth and the dip of the vein exposed at surface and confirm gold and silver mineralization below the channel samples. Drilling to date has confirmed the vein to a vertical depth of 120 feet (36.6 meters), being open at depth.
