The 2017 samples were analyzed at Eastern Analytical in Springdale Newfoundland (gold by Fire Assay – atomic absorption (AA); and copper, lead, zinc and silver by multi-acid digestion and AA). The channels samples were collected across selected clasts at generally right angles to the long dimension of the clasts.  The 2017 Bull Road trench sample data was verified by qualified persons who managed the sampling program and verified sample data.

Great Atlantic is planning a diamond drilling program for fall 2018 at the Bull Road showing.

The Pilley’s Island Property hosts the historic Pilley’s Island Mine, which operated during the 1890s and early 1900s. The Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Natural Resources reports historic estimated proven reserves of 1.159 million tonnes grading 1.23% Cu (referencing Grimley, 1968 as the source) or 627,373 tons at 2.34% Cu (referencing Walker, 1976 as the source ) in their Mineral Occurrence Database. David Martin, VP Exploration for Great Atlantic, states “These historical estimates of reserves are not reliable. The historical estimates are only relevant to the extent of identifying an area on the property for research and possible future exploration. The key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to prepare the historical estimates are not known.  A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimates as current resources or current reserves. A qualified person would need to complete sufficient work following CIM Best Practice Guidelines to upgrade or verify the historical estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves. This would almost certainly require additional exploration in the way of diamond drilling, trenching and / or underground work and corresponding sampling all of which must follow CIM Exploration Best Practice Guidelines.” Great Atlantic is not treating the historical estimates for the historic Pilley’s Island Mine as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.

Access to and infrastructure at the Pilley’s Island Property is excellent. The property is serviced with power mains and government maintained roads and is within 2 km of tide water. The property is located within a mining friendly district.

Readers are warned that historical data on the historic Pilley’s Island Mine referred to in this News Release have not been verified by a qualified person. A qualified person has not verified this data as the Company’s focus since acquiring the property in 2017 has been the Bull Road showing.

  • Announced the acquisition of the “Colt Mesa” copper-cobalt property in Garfield County, south central Utah.
  • Colt Mesa mine is associated cobalt, zinc, nickel and molybdenum mineralization
  • Recent sampling (CM-18-01) by Company personnel, on a site visit with the vendor of the property, returned values of 0.88 percent (%) copper (Cu), 2.31% cobalt (Co), 9.31 % zinc (Zn), +1.00 % nickel (Ni), and 0.29 % molybdenum (Mo), over a 0.3 meter chip sample of surface exposure near the adit portal

 

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSXV:GLI) – (“Glacier” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the “Colt Mesa” copper-cobalt property in Garfield County, southcentral Utah. The property is readily accessible by gravel roads from Boulder, the closest community with services and support. Key takeaways:

  • Property covers the past producing Colt Mesa mine, a copper deposit with associated cobalt, zinc, nickel and molybdenum mineralization.
  • Recent sampling (CM-18-01) by Company personnel, on a site visit with the vendor of the property, returned values of 0.88 percent (%) copper (Cu), 2.31% cobalt (Co), 9.31 % zinc (Zn), +1.00 % nickel (Ni), and 0.29 % molybdenum (Mo), over a 0.3 meter chip sample of surface exposure near the adit portal. Tables below,
  • Area recently became open for staking and exploration after a 21 year period moratorium, due to the reduction of the “Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument” by President Trump in December 2017.
  • 1975 grab sampling reported values from 0.07% to 29.50 % copper (Cu), 0.01% to 0.67 % cobalt (Co), 0.03% to 3.30 % zinc (Zn), 0.02% to 0.27 % nickel (Ni), and trace to 0.17 % molybdenum (Mo). The Company cautions investors grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization on the Colt Mesa property.
  • Sedimentary (sandstone) hosted, tabular strata-bound mineralization.
  • Excellent year-round logistics, road accessible. No reclamation issues from historic mining activity.

“The Colt Mesa acquisition broadens our focus on sedimentary hosted copper deposits, with a significant bonus of cobalt and nickel mineralization indicated. There is strong investor interest in the “Battery Metals” sector, including cobalt, nickel and copper. With this new interest coupled with the growth of the EV sector and strong demand for cobalt, the Colt Mesa project is a welcome addition to the Company’s ever growing portfolio of projects,” says Saf Dhillon, president and chief executive officer. “Surface exploration work will start this summer on the Colt Mesa property and drill permitting will be initiated shortly.”

The Colt Mesa deposit was discovered in 1968 and was mined intermittently from 1971 to 1974. While little data survived from the copper mining activities, a 1975 Master Thesis (G.M. Collings, 1975, Geology and Geochemistry of the Colt Mesa Copper Deposit”) completed at the University of Utah, is an invaluable source of information on the geology and mineralization at the Colt Mesa mine.

Tabular, strata-bound copper mineralization lies within a paleochannel at the contact of two distinct sedimentary (sandstone) units. The trackless, room-and-pillar mining was focused on the copper mineralization meaning the mine and surrounding area were never systematically explored for cobalt mineralization.

All of the above samples were taken at surface, near the adits. The underground working was examined (see website for photos), but not sampled. Samples CM-18-01, 02, and 03, were chip sampled from the same location over a width of 1.35 meters, averaging 0.52 % Cu, 1.51 % Co, 6.52 % Zn, 0.79% Pb, and 0.17 % Mo. Sample CM-18-01 and CM-18-03 had conspicuous “cobalt bloom”, whereas CM-18-02 was barren, unmineralized sandstone. Sample CM-18-04 was a select grab sample of bright, copper oxide float from the dump. The Colt Mesa is renowned for brilliant, multicolored copper oxides, attributed to the association with cobalt and molybdenum.’

The 1975 Master Thesis reports: “The ore body is tabular in form and is composed of chalcopyrite, bornite, digenite, covellite and chalcocite”. Sampling of the underground mineralized zone was completed in 1975 with a total of eight samples from the mineralized zone taken as follows:

Again, the Company cautions investors grab samples are selected samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization on the Colt Mesa property.

The Colt Mesa area has seen significant exploration for uranium in the 1950s and 1960s, modest exploration for copper and base metals but minimal exploration was focused on cobalt and nickel. The Colt Mesa mine area was sterilized from exploration and development in 1996, when President Clinton created the “Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument”, however, the size was recently reduced by Presidential proclamation in 2017, placing Colt Mesa outside the new boundaries of the restructured national monument.

In consideration for the property, Glacier Lake will issue one million common shares, and make a cash payment of US $120,000, staged over a two (2) year period. The vendors retain a one-and-three-quarters percent (1.75%) Net Smelter Returns (“NSR”). Glacier shall be entitled to purchase one percent (1.00%) of the Royalty at any time through a one-time cash payment of $1,000,000 to the vendors. Completion of the acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All common shares issued will be subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period. A finder’s fee may be payable related to this acquisition.

Quality assurance/quality control

All recent surface samples from the Colt Mesa property were hand delivered to the ALS Minerals Ltd. North Vancouver, B.C., laboratory, an 17025:2005 certified facility. All samples were collected by Company personnel and securely stored until delivery to ALS Minerals. At this early stage of exploration, Glacier Lake is relying on the certified standards utilized by ALS Minerals as part of it analysis protocols. No QA/QC anomalies were noted in the analyses.

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):

  • Ky-15-3 (Elmtree 12): 16.68% Zn, 1.11% Cu & 152 g/t Ag over 1.80 meter core length.
  • Ky-15-4 (Elmtree 12):  8.68% Zn, 0.29% Cu & 44.8 g/t Ag over 4.28 meter core length.
  • Ky-17-5 (Elmtree 12): 13.65% Zn, 1.20% Cu, 0.45% Pb & 166 g/t Ag over 0.80 meter core length.
  • Ky-17-6 (Elmtree 12): 3.54% Zn, 0.92% Cu, 0.28% Pb & 115.6 g/t Ag over 12.05 meter core length & 0.64 g/t Au over 19.96 meter core length (newly discovered gold bearing zone).
  • Ky-17-8: 18.80% Zn, 3.55% Cu, 1.16% Pb & 576 g/t Au over 1.27 meter core length (newly discovered polymetallic vein southwest of Elmtree 12 vein system).
  • 1.11 g/t Au over 4.9 meters in trench channel samples (vertically above drill hole Ky-17-8).

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.

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

$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.

$TSXV Week in Review

Posted by justiceisfalse at 5:52 PM on Sunday, February 26th, 2012

The $TSXV had another strong week. I was definitely looking for a correction, but that has yet to materialize – we may just rock ‘n’ roll into PDAC. I remain confident that the good issuers will prevail and the cream will rise in addition to certain hot sectors like Graphite and precious metals that will bring volume in. I am also keeping a close eye on Uranium and some interesting biotech issues.

There are a few points that I noticed this week that stood out:

  • Market Internals: Long side momentum players and the “Jitney Magic Men”(broker code 99 that takes out those key levels in the blink of an eye) are all over issues with good news and price levels to be taken out.
  • Risk Appetite: There is a sense that the worst is behind us and money is flowing into the speculative issues. There is money available to fiance projects of merit. Retail can follow this via http://canadianfinancing.com/
