  • 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec.
  • 20.69% Cg over 8 metres in drill hole 17-02.
  • 2, 7.35% Cg over 12 metres in hole CK17-01

 

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 28, 2017) –  CKR Carbon Corporation. (TSXV: CKR) (FSE: CB81) (“CKR” or the “Company”) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials development company is pleased to provide initial results from the diamond drilling and trenching program at its 100% owned Buckingham graphite project in Quebec. Results have been received from three of five holes and one of four trenches, with assays up to 20.69% Cg (carbon as graphite) over 8 metres in drill hole 17-02.

Highlights of the results received to date include 15.0% Cg over eight metres in Trench 2, 7.35% Cg over 12 metres in hole CK17-01, and 6.06% Cg over 88 metres from nine metres that included a higher-grade interval of 20.69% Cg over 8 metres in hole CK17-02. A summary of the results is given in the table below.

 

Hole/Trench ID From (m) To (m) Width (m) Cg (%)
CK17-01 53 106 53 3.52
including 94 106 12 7.35
CK17-02 9 97 88 6.06
including 75 95 20 7.52
and 11 31 20 12.09
including 22 30 8 20.69
CK17-03 35 59 24 2.64
17-TR02 13.4 10.50
including 8 15.00

 

Widths are not necessarily true widths as there is currently insufficient information to calculate true widths.

The drilling and trenching follows up on positive results of airborne electromagnetics and trenching undertaking during 2016. Hole CK-17-01 was drilled below an isolated EM conductor and intersected graphite mineralization primarily hosted in marble with minor quartzo-feldspatic gneiss. Hole CK 17-02 was drilled into the main 1.54 kilometre long northeast-southwest trending EM conductor the northeast portion of which coincides with graphite mineralization in the Case Zone that yielded assays of 1.6% Cg to 28.7% Cg in 35 grab samples. The best intersections were associated with marble and calc-silicate rich rock. Hole CK-17-03 was drilled approximately 100m to the south east of CK17-02 where the EM anomaly narrows.

Results from trench two are encouraging, since it extends the known graphite mineralization approximately 230 metres to the southeast and confirms the coincidence of graphite mineralization with the EM conductor.

“We are very pleased with these results from our 100% owned Buckingham Project that confirm the graphite is associated with the EM conductor over the length tested to date,” said Roger Moss, Chief Executive Officer of CKR Carbon. “Results from Trench 17 TR-02 are particularly significant as it represents a 230 metre step southeast along the EM conductor.”

All samples were placed in a plastic sample bag along with a sample tag. Bags were sealed with a single use tie. Samples were securely stored prior to shipping to SGS in Lakefield Ontario. Samples were crushed, milled and roasted and treated by HCl leach prior to being assayed by the combustion infrared technique (LECO). The company routinely submits standards, duplicates and blanks with sample batches to monitor the quality of the assays.

$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.

  • 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.

Canada could thrive from marijuana legalization in U.S. states $MCOA.us $TBP.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 3:52 PM on Thursday, November 10th, 2016
  • Voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada approved on Tuesday the use of recreational cannabis, joining four other states and Washington, D.C., that have similar laws in place.
  • Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas approved medical marijuana, which would bring the total number of states with such a system to more than two dozen.
By ALEXANDRA POSADZKI The Canadian Press
Thu., Nov. 10, 2016

Canada’s marijuana industry could benefit after at least six states representing twice the population of Canada voted in favour of legalizing the drug, either recreationally or medically.

Voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada approved on Tuesday the use of recreational cannabis, joining four other states and Washington, D.C., that have similar laws in place.

Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas approved medical marijuana, which would bring the total number of states with such a system to more than two dozen.

Shipping marijuana into the U.S., whether for medical or recreational purposes, is illegal. But the CEO of Privateer Holdings, a U.S.-based private equity firm that focuses on investing in the marijuana sector, says he expects Canadian producers will enter into partnerships and joint ventures with their neighbours to the south following the referendums.

“I think you’ll see Canadian companies jump at the opportunity to expand their operations and brands into the United States,” says Brendan Kennedy, whose firm owns Nanaimo, B.C.-based licensed producer Tilray.

That could mean everything from participating in the production process to providing consulting services or licensing intellectual property to U.S. producers, Kennedy says.

“There are huge opportunities for Canadian companies, because Canada has the most robust and tightly regulated medical cannabis framework in the world,” he says.

“Both governments and companies around the world are looking to Canada to provide leadership and expertise in this industry.”

People in Montana voted to expand its current medical marijuana regime. In Maine, voters appeared to be inching toward legalizing recreational use, but as of early Thursday, the results were still to close to call.

Presuming all eight states approve their various marijuana initiatives, that could inject $7.4 billion (U.S.) annually into the marijuana market by 2020, Arcview Market Research says. That would open the door to a recreational and medical marijuana market in the U.S. worth $21.2 billion by that same time, according to the research firm.

Alan Gertner, CEO of luxury marijuana brand Tokyo Smoke, says the legalization push means more opportunities for brand licensing deals. His company is already working with partners in Florida and Massachusetts, he said.

“Generally, more legal consumers means more opportunity to build and scale Canadian cannabis brands,” Gertner said in an email.

Canadian companies that build equipment and technology that help grow medical marijuana will also gain access to a larger market, he added.

Cam Battley, executive vice-president of Alberta-based licensed producer Aurora Cannabis Inc., says Canada is home to some of the largest commercial marijuana producers in the world.

Having a federally regulated medical marijuana regime — rather than a piecemeal, state-by-state system like the U.S. — has allowed Canadian marijuana companies to master large-scale, commercial production techniques, says Battley.

“We do have a lot of expertise, and we’ve learned, collectively as a sector, a lot of really important lessons about cultivation and consistent production,” says Battley.

“I think that does give us some advantages and would bode well for partnerships when the time is right.”

Khurram Malik, the cannabis lead at Jacob Capital Management, says the news could also help Canadian marijuana companies secure funding by making investors more comfortable with the sector.

“Most of the money raised up here is from the U.S.,” says Malik. “This legitimizes the concept of cannabis around the world, which is only a positive for the market up here.”
