David Martin (P.Geo) - VP of Exploration
Professional Geologist with approximately 20 years’ experience in the mineral exploration industry, Mr. Martin graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science Degree (Geology major) and from the New Brunswick Community College in 1994 with a Business Technology Diploma. Employed as a Geologist during numerous mineral exploration projects involving a variety of commodities including gold, silver, tin, tungsten, molybdenum, indium, copper, lead, zinc, and antimony. Held senior managerial roles since 2005 including Regional Manager and VP New Brunswick Operations with Geodex Minerals Ltd. and VP Exploration with Great Atlantic Resources Corp. The majority of the exploration projects were in New Brunswick, Canada. Also involved in exploration projects and / or project generation in Nova Scotia; Newfoundland and Labrador; British Columbia; Spain; France and Ukraine. Played a key role during numerous mineral discoveries, the most significant being at the Sisson Tungsten – Molybdenum Project and the Mount Pleasant Tin – Indium Project, both in New Brunswick..
Great Atlantic Resources is well positioned to succeed as the mining industry continues to improve. I look forward to exploring and advancing the Company's many high-quality projects, including the Keymet Precious Base Metal Property with high-grade gold in boulders and impressive zinc drill intersections, and the Golden Promise Gold Property with multiple promising gold targets.
Wilson Jacobs - Senior Geologist

He has worked with intrusive and/or porphyry-related projects, including nickel exploration projects in Labrador and porphyry copper in both Newfoundland and northwestern Mexico. He has conducted exploration programs (including management of many helicopter-supported field camp crews) in diverse geological settings in which he has gained considerable experience in geological mapping, diamond drilling, core logging, rock and geochemical sampling, map and report preparation (incl. map compilations), and interpreting of geophysical surveys. He is a co-discoverer of the presently-producing Pine Cove gold deposit (Baie Verte Peninsula area) in NL, with several other (undeveloped) gold occurrence discoveries to his credit.
