VANCOUVER, British Columbia – April 30, 2024 – GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received analytical results for bedrock rock samples collected from a section of an antimony bearing vein at its Glenelg Vanadium, Gold, Antimony Property, located in New Brunswick.

Antimony (stibnite) bearing vein at Glenelg Property

Two samples returned high grade antimony values including 13.75% (6.36 kilograms sample weight) and 13.70% (4.94 kilograms sample weight). A third samples returned 2.98% antimony (6.34 kilograms sample weight).

Vein material with stibnite (antimony sulfide)

The antimony bearing vein (stibnite-quartz-carbonate) is located within the southern region of the Glenelg Property. Great Atlantic discovered the vein during 2022 of which the first grab sample returned 23.4% antimony (sample weight of 1.83 kilograms or 4.03 pounds) (see Company News release of August 16, 2022). The vein occurs in a highway-cut bedrock exposure. Massive stibnite (antimony sulfide) occurs locally within the vein at the highway exposure. The vein strikes northwest and is steeply dipping. The vein is up to 0.6 meters wide in this highway cut (where the original 2022 grab sample was collected).

Great Atlantic revisited the vein during 2023. Four rock samples were collected, all from an approximately 0.4 meters wide by 0.6 meters long part of the vein at the highway exposure, sampling throughout this part of the vein exposure. These were larger samples compared to the single 2022 sample. All samples contain significant amounts of antimony with two samples returning high grade antimony. All samples returned weakly anomalous gold values. The four samples collected within this part of the vein and respective antimony (Sb) and gold (Au) analyses and sample weights are as follows:

  • 534277: 75 weight percent (%) Sb and 0.024 parts per million (ppm) Au (6.36 kilograms – 14.02 pounds)
  • 534277A: 70% Sb and 0.033 ppm Au (4.94 kilograms – 10.89 pounds)
  • 534277B: 98 % Sb and 0.014 ppm Au (6.34 kilograms – 13.98pounds)
  • 534277C: 36 % Sb and 0.010 ppm Au (6.81 kilograms – 15.01 pounds)

The weighted average of the four rock samples collected within this approximately 0.4 meters by 0.6 meters area of the vein is 7.22% antimony (24.45 kilograms (53.90 pounds) total weight).

The 2023 prospecting and rock geochemical sampling at the Glenelg Property was supervised by a Qualified Person. The 2023 rock samples documented in this news release were analyzed by ALS Canada Ltd. for gold by fire assay – AA and for antimony by XRF (following lithium borate fusion). ALS Canada Ltd., a certified laboratory, is independent of Great Atlantic.

Part of the northern boundary of the Glenelg Property borders the Clarence Stream Project of Galway Metals Inc. Galway reported a NI 43-101 resource estimate for the project during 2022, reporting total Indicated resources of 12,396,000 tonnes at 2.31 g/t gold (contained 922,000 ounces of gold and 9,605 tonnes of antimony) and total Inferred resources of 15,963,000 tonnes at 2.60 g/t gold (contained 1,334,000 ounces of gold and 2,145 tonnes of antimony).

Readers are warned that mineralization at the Clarence Stream Project is not necessarily indicative of mineralization within the Glenelg Property.

David Martin, P.Geo. (New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador), a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 and VP Exploration for Great Atlantic, is responsible for the technical information contained in this News Release.
