AUGUSTA INDUSTRIES $AAO.ca Normal Course Issuer Bid (NCIB) A Winning Move After Lock-Up Agreement $PHO.ca $DYA.ca $OPS.ca

Posted by Er at 12:57 PM on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Following the November 9th announcement of a Lock-Up Agreement for 32% of the company’s shares, Augusta has surprised the market announcing a NCIB whereas up to 17,340,061 common shares representing up to 10% of the Company’s public float will be purchased through an Agent and subsequently cancelled. Once again AAO is demonstrating its commitment to create shareholder value through the process of reducing the available shares on the open market.

Allen Lone, President and CEO of Augusta stated:

The Company believes that the purchase of the Shares will increase the proportionate interest of, and be advantageous to, all remaining security holders.”

Not only is this excellent news for existing shareholders, it could potentially lead a surge in price if recent examples of NCIB’s in the market are any indicator; especially considering the following are peers of AAO.v:

Spartan Energy (TSX SPE)

Announced NCIB buy back August 22nd when price was $5.11. It went as high as $7.37.                                         Spartan’s NCIB buy back was based on 5% of 175m outstanding or 8.7 million shares

 

 

Genworth MI Canada Inc  (TSX MIC)

Announced their NCIB buy back May 2nd when price was $34.45. Genworth went as high
as $44.81. Their NCIB buy back was based on 5% of 90.9m outstanding, equivalent to 4.59 million shares

 

 

Augusta Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Augusta Industries November 14th NCIB announcement for up to 17,340,061 common shares separates itself from its peers.  Not only is Augusta consuming for closure another 10% of the Company’s public float, it is sending a clear message to its current and prospective shareholders; the company is preparing itself for the market to take notice.  Augusta is removing more shares on a percentage basis at 10% than the 5% & 5% that  Spartan & Genworth each removed through their respective NCIB.

The AGM is December 29th

Posted by Er at 10:09 AM on Thursday, November 16th, 2017

  • Pilley’s Island Base Metal – Precious Metal Property- Located in North-Central Newfoundland
  • Grab samples collected from trenches returned up to 27.5% Zn, 20.0% Pb, 8.36% Cu and 63.4 g/t Ag
  • Diamond drill program is to commence in late November.

 

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. The Bull Road Showing is a polylithic slump breccia of volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization containing massive sulphide clasts up to greater than a metre in length.

  • 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

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.

 

Historic Keymet Mine (1950s)

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.
