GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES FILES TECHNICAL REPORT ON GOLDEN PROMISE PROPERTY AND
CLARIFIES TECHNICAL DISCLOSURES
FOCUSED ON EXPLORING ATLANTIC CANADA
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – May 28, 2018 – GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV:GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) announces that, further to its news release on January 5, 2018, it has today filed a technical report prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) on the Golden Promise property (the “Project”) in central Newfoundland, Newfoundland & Labrador, entitled “National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report on the Golden Promise Property, Badger Area, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada” and dated May 3, 2018 (the “Technical Report”). The Technical Report was prepared by Paul W. Delaney, P.Geo., an independent “Qualified Person” (as that term is defined in NI 43-101).
As stated in the Company’s January 5, 2018 news release, the May 31, 2016 news release disclosed a mineral resource estimate on the Project. It constituted the first-time disclosure of a mineral resource estimate for the Project, and triggered the requirement for the Company to file an independent technical report under s. 4.2(1)(j)(i) of NI 43-101. The statements in the May 31, 2016 news release regarding mineral resources on the Project are not supported by a NI 43-101 compliant technical report, contrary to NI 43-101, such that mineral resource estimates should not be relied on until they have been verified and supported by a NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the Project. The mineral resource estimate stated in the May 31, 2016 news release is a historic (2008) mineral resource estimate for the Jaclyn Main Zone. As stated in the Technical Report, a qualified person has not completed sufficient work to classify the historical mineral resource estimate as current mineral resources. The Technical Report states the historical mineral resource estimate should not be relied on. The Technical Report summarizes additional historical work reported to have been conducted in 2010 at the Jaclyn Main Zone subsequent to the historic mineral resource estimate. This includes diamond drilling, channel sampling and extraction of a bulk sample.
The Company is expanding on its January 5, 2018 news release now that the Technical Report has been filed. The Company specifically retracts the mineral resource estimate for the Project as disclosed in its May 31, 2016 news release. The Technical Report indicates that the Project has no mineral resources. Therefore, the Company is unable to support the mineral resource estimate with a NI 43-101 compliant technical report.
The Technical Report is available for review on SEDAR (www.sedar.com).
Technical material in this news release has been reviewed by David Martin, P.Geo., a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101.
