Key Facts

  • Hole Ky-17-8 (2017 discovery): 18.80% Zn (37.32% Zn Equiv. as of June 14 2018), 3.55% Cu, 1.16% Pb & 576 g/t Ag / 1.27 meter core length
  • The 1950's Keymet Mine facility was gutted by fire. The mine was never reopened due to global recession and low silver prices
  • Multiple Pb, Zn , Cu & Ag bearing veins (including historic Keymet Mine and Elmtree 12 Vein System)
  • Great Atlantic has defined drill targets
  • Only 20 km from historic Brunswick 12 mine
  • Gold mineralization discovered in Great Atlantic trenches and drill holes

  • Drill Results (Elmtree 12 Vein System)

    Historic Keymet Mine

    Keymet is a high priority precious metal - base metal property, located in northeast New Brunswick near Bathurst. The property covers an area of approximately 3400 hectares. Polymetallic veins (copper, lead, zinc, and silver) were mined during the 1950s in the northern region at the historic Keymet Mine. Historic exploration by multiple companies dates back to the late 1800’s with multiple mineralized veins reported in the northern region, including the historic Keymet Mine (source: New Brunswick Department of Energy and Resource Development files).

    Great Atlantic conducted diamond drilling at the Elmtree 12 vein system in 2015 and 2017. Intersections include 16.68% Zn, 1.11% Cu and 152 g/t Ag over 1.80 meters (in hole Ky-15- 3) and 8.68% Zn, 0.29% Cu and 44 g/t Ag over 4.28 meters (in hole Ky-15- 4 approx. 35m vertically under the Ky-15- 3 intersection). A qualified person has verified this drill hole data. A qualified person managed the drilling / sampling programs and verified hole locations - directions, sample intervals and analytical data. The drill core samples (and lab-inserted blank, standard and duplicate samples) were analyzed by ALS Canada in North Vancouver, BC (gold by Fire Assay – Atomic Absorption and lead, zinc, copper and silver by Inductively Coupled Plasma – Atomic Emission Spectroscopy or Atomic Absorption). ALS Minerals is independent of Great Atlantic. Trenching by Great Atlantic in 2015 in this area intersected a gold bearing zone of which channel samples across the zone graded 1.1 g/t Au over 4.9 meters. A qualified person has verified this trench channel sample data through management of the trenching / sampling program and verification of the sample intervals and analytical data. The channel samples (and lab-inserted blank, standard and duplicate samples) were analyzed by ALS Canada in North Vancouver,BC with gold analysis by Fire Assay – Atomic Absorption. Host rocks in this area are meta-sediments. 

    Gold bearing zones are documented west of the Keymet property on an adjacent property. Great Atlantic has no interest in this adjacent property.
