Great Atlantic Exploration Update on its
Kagoot Brook Cobalt Project
FOCUSED ON EXPLORING ATLANTIC CANADA
VANCOUVER, British Columbia – September 25, 2018 – GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSX.V: GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to provide this update in regard to its Kagoot Brook Cobalt project.
Kagoot Brook Co-Mn-Base Metal Project, New Brunswick Historical work at Kagoot Brook has delineated two drainages, two kilometres apart, that exhibit remarkably high cobalt values up to 6,000 ppm in the silts (see Company news releases dated May 31 and February 14, 2018). The recent results from a complementary silt sampling program has:
1) Fully corroborated the existence and intensity of the cobalt mineralization; and
2) Revealed a strong relationship and significant occurrence of manganese and base metals (nickel, copper, lead and zinc) with the cobalt mineralization.
The observed suite of elements and local geological units supports a ferromanganese marine environment indicating a strong affinity and trap for cobalt and base metals; a setting similar to the well-known ferromanganese stratiform mineralizing models around the world.
- The amount of manganese and iron in the cobalt enriched silts, upwards to 4.1% and 26.7% respectively, indicates a prevalent source with size potential; and
- The relative percentage of the manganese to cobalt indicates a favourable high cobalt tenor (i.e. grade component).
As a result, Great Atlantic’s optionee has initiated a follow-up stream silt sampling program with tightly spaced sample stations to better frame the contact of the underlying target mineralized horizon. In conjunction, a detailed magnetometer and very low frequency electromagnetic (“VLF-EM”) survey has been initiated to map the underlying stratigraphy to assist with the targeting.
Once these additional surveys have been completed and integrated with the historical work, a drill program is planned.
No drilling has ever been conducted and no source of the historic geochemical anomalies is known on the property.
Note(*): The surface rock grab and stream silt samples reported in this release are solely designed to show the presence or absence of mineralization and to characterize the mineralization. Grab and silt samples are by definition selective and not intended to provide nor should be construed as a representative indication of grade or mineralization at the projects.
The Kagoot Brook property is 100% owned by Great Atlantic and is subject to an underlying agreement with a Explorex Resources Inc. ( EX.v ). Explorex is acquiring up to a 75% interest in the project. (See News Release dated February 14,2018)
