(FRA: PH01)


Vancouver, B.C., February 14, 2018, Great Atlantic Resources Corp. (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) (GR:TSXV) is pleased to announce that it has executed a Letter of Intent to option a 75% interest in the Kagoot Brook cobalt project in New Brunswick (“Project”) to Explorex Resources Inc. (EX:TSX.v)  (“Explorex”).


Kagoot Brook Project

The Project consists of 7 claims, totalling 4,233 ha. located in north central New Brunswick, 85 km southwest of Bathurst along the southwest margin of the famous Bathurst Mining Camp.  The property is underlain by Cambro-Ordivician felsic volcanics and sediments.  In 1983, the New Brunswick Government, released stream sediment sampling results with anomalous responses which led to the staking of the Kagoot Brook claims by Brunswick Mining and Smelting (“Brunswick Mining”).


Brunswick Mining conducted extensive soil sampling commencing in 1984 and completed 4.6 km of magnetic and 13.0 km of VLF-EM geophysical surveys over the gridded area, as well as stream sediment silt samples (New Brunswick Assessment Report 473161).  The VLF survey indicated three strong and two weak conductors within the property.  The trends are oriented near east–west and delineate three areas of major interest.  The soil samples returned favourable results from the three areas with a strong association between Cu, Ag and Co with the VLF conductors.  The silt sampling program returned strongly anomalous cobalt with values up to 6,000 ppm with anomalous values in Cu, Pb, Zn and Ni.  From this work two zones were delineated for follow up.  Recently completed regional geophysics has further refined the geological setting and targeted additional areas of interest.


No sources of the geochemical anomalies are known on the property and no drilling has ever been conducted.


Option Agreement

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;


  • Issuing $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 Explorex 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.
