VANCOUVER, British Columbia – July 4, 2018 – GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce that its Optionee Explorex Resources Inc is in receipt of a Work Permit from the New Brunswick Dept. of Energy and Resource Development to conduct an exploration program consisting of a detailed geophysical survey, possible trenching and drilling.
The Kagoot Brook project (“Project”) consists of 3 mineral claims, totalling 4,233 hectares located in north central New Brunswick, 85 km southwest of Bathurst along the southwest margin of the famous Bathurst Mining Camp. In 1984, Brunswick Mining and Smelting (“Brunswick Mining”), following up on highly anomalous, >1,000 ppm cobalt, stream silt samples collected by the New Brunswick Government, performed a detailed sampling campaign in the vicinity (New Brunswick Assessment Report 473161) revealing one of the most notable stream silt cobalt anomalies in New Brunswick.
Kagoot Brook Project’s Key Highlights:
- 6,000 ppm cobalt (0.6% Co) reported from stream silt sample;
- Areas of highly anomalous stream sediment samples coincident with geophysical conductors;
- No drilling has ever been conducted; and
- Permitted comprehensive exploration program for this summer.
“The Kagoot Brook Project remains one of the most notable and untested cobalt surface occurrences in New Brunswick’s Bathurst Mining Camp. We look forward to this summer’s exploration program designed to determine the source of the enriched Cobalt mineralization” states Mike Sieb, President, Explorex Resources Inc.
The Kagoot Brook property is 100% owned by Great Atlantic and is subject to an underlying agreement with a prospecting syndicate. The agreement to acquire a 75% interest in the Project is subject to the following terms:
- Cash payment of $25,000 and issuance of 75,000 shares upon signing a definitive agreement (Paid and Issued);
- Issue $50,000 in shares on the 12-month anniversary of the definitive agreement; the number of shares to be issued will be based on the 10 day VWAP immediately prior to the anniversary date; and
- Explorex will incur a total expenditure of $750,000 (including all underlying payments) over a period of 4 years; of which $100,000 will be a firm commitment on or before the first anniversary of the definitive agreement.
Upon earning 75% of the project, the parties will enter into a joint venture. The terms will provide for a pro-rata dilution such that should Great Atlantic’s interest drop below 5%, it will revert to a 3% NSR. Explorex will retain the right to buyback 2 percentage points at $ 1 million for each 1%, or portion thereof. Should Great Atlantic seek to sell any portion of the remaining NSR, Explorex will retain a first right of refusal.
