Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received a permit for diamond drilling from the Newfoundland and Labrador Dept. of Natural Resources for its Golden Promise Gold Property in central Newfoundland. The permit allows for up to 8,000 meters of drilling and 48 drill holes. This permit expires on July 26, 2018. Multiple gold bearing quartz veins occur within the permit area including the Jaclyn Main, Jaclyn North, Jaclyn South and Jaclyn West Zones.  The Company is planning to commence the first phase of drilling in early October, focusing on the Jaclyn Main Zone and area east of and along strike of the Jaclyn North Zone, including areas of high grade gold bearing quartz boulders.

Phase I drilling will include the Jaclyn Main Zone, located in the northern region of the property. Most of the historic work was conducted at the Jaclyn Main Zone. A National Instrument 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 reported 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 second area of focus during Phase I drilling is the Jaclyn North Zone, reported approximately 250 metres north of the Jaclyn Main Zone. Drill holes are planned to test the extension of Jaclyn North Zone along its projected strike to the east. Recent trenching in this area revealed thick overburden (predominantly greater than 3 or 4 metres in recent trenches). Gold bearing angular quartz bounders were discovered in till within these trenches including multiple high grade boulders in one trench approximately 260 meters east of the eastern-most historic Jaclyn North drill hole. Grab samples of boulders from this trench returned 31.96, 78.05, 163.99 and 332.67 g/t gold (9.7 oz./ton gold) (News Release of August 31, 2017). The area of this particular trench is a high priority target for the Company and will be tested during the Phase I drilling.

The northeast striking Jaclyn North Zone has been reportedly traced by diamond drilling (13 holes) for approximately 450 meters and locally to a vertical depth of 175 meters.  The zone is reported to contain 3 quartz veined sub-zones. Reported drill intersections include (core length):

  • GP03-32:                                   12.13 g/t Au / 0.35m & 12.30 g/t Au / 0.30m
  • GP07-76 (Upper Sub-zone):       11.28 g/t Au / 0.30m
  • GP06-51 (Middle Sub-zone):      5.24 g/t Au / 1.70
  • GP06-47 (Lower Sub-zone):       15.23 g/t Au / 0.30m
  • GP10-103:                                  6.19 g/t Au / 0.35m

The 2008 NI 43-101 Technical Report states the style of veining, mineralization, alteration, host rock and tectonism at Golden Promise most closely resembles other turbidite-hosted (or slate belt) gold deposits throughout the world.

Access is excellent with a paved provincial highway transecting the property. The property is located near the town of Badger and approximately 50 kilometres northeast of the Valentine Lake Property of Marathon Gold Corp.
