Flying Over South Quarry
One area of tungsten mineralization (scheelite) is a quarry referred to as the 'South Quarry' in the northern part of the property. At this location, the scheelite occurs in veins cutting metasediments. Access to this quarry and the entire property is excellent. A paved provincial highway transects the property from north to south.

South Quarry is a high priority tungsten property with lithium potential, located in east-central Newfoundland. The property covers an area of 3600 hectares. The property contains tungsten bearing quartz-mica- feldspar pegmatite veins.

Tungsten bearing calc-silicate horizons are also reported. Tungsten bearing veins occur in the northern region including at a quarry called the South Quarry and an adjacent smaller quarry. Great Atlantic confirmed high grade tungsten mineralization (scheelite) in veins in rubble and bedrock at these quarries during 2015. Eleven rubble grab samples exceeded 5% WO3 (3 of which exceeded 10% WO3). A 20 cm long channel sample along a 15cm wide vein in the small quarry returned 2.96% WO3 while a grab sample from a 0.25 meter wide vein in the South Quarry returned 11.94% WO3. A qualified person verified this sample data. The qualified person supervised the 2015 sampling and verified the sample data. The samples (and lab-inserted blank, duplicate and standard samples) were analyzed at ALS Canada in North Vancouver, BC (ALS Mineral is independent of Great Atlantic Resources). Tungsten analysis was by lithium metaborate fusion followed by acid dissolution and ICP-MS analysis with some samples re-analyzed by XRF. Host rocks are meta-sediments. Multi-element analysis of 2015 rock samples (at ALS Canada in North Vancouver by Aqua Regia – ICP-AES / ICP-MS) revealed some samples anomalous for lithium (up to 297 ppm Li).

Tungsten mineralization is reported in the southern region, reported in narrow (<1m) calc-silicate horizons (source: Newfoundland and Labrador Dept. of Natural Resources Mineral Assessment Reports). A qualified person has not verified this mineralization.

Granite intrusions are reported peripheral to the property. Great Atlantic management speculate tungsten mineralization on the property to be related to buried granitic intrusions.


WHY TUNGSTEN

Tungsten has unique properties:
• extremely hard and dense
• has the highest melting temperature of any metal
• extremely resistant to corrosion and does not break down or decompose
Tungsten is an indispensable material in most industrial applications.
