GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSX-V:GR) (FRA:PH02) is pleased to announce it is currently conducting gold exploration consisting of prospecting and rock geochemical sampling at six properties in central Newfoundland adjacent to and in close proximity to the Company’s flagship Golden Promise Gold Property. The mineral licences occur east, west, south, and southwest of the Golden Promise Property. Anomalous gold in soil and / or rock samples is reported within and / or adjacent to these mineral properties.
The six properties currently being explored are the Southwest Golden Promise, South Golden Promise, West Golden Promise, East Golden Promise, Lynx and Coronation. All except the Southwest Golden Promise Property consist of one mineral licence each. The Southwest Golden Promise Property consists of two mineral licences. The 2022 programs include prospecting and rock geochemical sampling in target areas within the six properties. The Company is also conducting exploration further southwest of these properties at the Golden Trust Property (see Company news release of September 8, 2022)
Company management have identified target areas within these six properties based on its previous work, reported mineral occurrences (Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Industry, Energy and Technology, Mineral Occurrence Database) and / or Assessment Reports on file with the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Industry, Energy and Technology.
The Southwest Golden Promise Property consisting of Licences 026930M and 030870M (1,750 hectares) is located adjacent to the southwest region of the Golden Promise Property. Initial 2019 prospecting by Great Atlantic located gold bearing quartz vein rubble (possible subcrop). A sample from multiple pieces of quartz vein rubble at one location returned 3.14 grams / tonne (g/t) gold identifying a target area (see Company news release of May 7, 2020).
The Lynx Property – Licence 031209M (1,525 hectares) is located approximately 12 kilometers east of the northern region of the Golden Promise Property. The property covers the area of a reported high-grade gold bearing rock sample, reported gold soil geochemical anomalies and a reported pyrite-gold mineral occurrence. Reported historic highlights include:
The Coronation Property – Licence 031208M (500 hectares) is located approximately 14 kilometers east of the southern region of the Golden Promise Property. The property covers reported gold soil geochemical anomalies and two reported gold-silver-molybdenum-copper mineral occurrences. Reported historic highlights include:
The East Golden Promise – Licence 031210M (1,125 hectares) s located adjacent to the east region of the Golden Promise Property. The property covers areas of reported gold bearing rock samples. These include two float samples reported to return 0.40 and 0.41 g/t gold (Copeland and Newport, 2005).
The West Golden Promise Property – Licence 031549M (1,425 hectares) is located adjacent to the western region of the Golden Promise Property. A 2005 soil sample collected within 100 meters of the east boundary of the property was reported to return a highly anomalous value of 0.559 ppm gold (Sparkes, 2006).
The South Golden Promise Property – Licence 031552M (450 hectares) is located adjacent to the south region of the Golden Promise Property. A 2008 soil sample reported approximately 113 meters north of the property (in the Company’s Golden Promise Property) was reported to return a highly anomalous value of 0.388 ppm gold (Morgan, 2008).
The Company’s central Newfoundland gold properties are located within the Exploits Subzone of the Newfoundland Dunnage Zone. Recent significant gold discoveries within the Exploits Subzone include those of Marathon Gold Corp. (TSX.MOZ) at the Valentine Gold Project, Sokoman Minerals Corp. (TSXV.SIC) at the Moosehead Gold Project and New Found Gold Corp. (TSXV.NFG) at the Queensway Project. Readers are warned that mineralization at the Valentine Gold Project, Moosehead Gold Project, and Queensway Project is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on Great Atlantic’s gold properties in this region.
