Great Atlantic has filed a NI 43-101 Technical Report on the company’s Golden Promise Gold Property located in the central Newfoundland gold belt.

This report provides a maiden inferred resource estimate for the Jaclyn Main Zone.

The property is located within the Exploits Subzone of the Newfoundland Dunnage Zone.

Within the Exploits Subzone, the property lies along the north-northwestern fringe of the Victoria Lake Supergroup, a volcano-sedimentary terrane.

The northwestern margin of the Golden Promise Property occurs proximal to, and, in part, contiguous with a major (Appalachian-scale) collisional boundary, and suture zone, known as the Red Indian Line.

The Red Indian Line forms the western boundary of the Exploits Subzone.

Recent significant gold discoveries in this region of the Exploits Subzone include those of Sokoman Iron Corp. and Marathon Gold Corp.

The property is located approximately 40 kilometers west-southwest of the Moosehead Project of Sokoman Iron Corp.

Sokoman reported a drill intersection of 45 grams per tonne gold over an 11.9 meter core length including a 1.35 meter core length quartz vein intersection of 386 grams per tonne gold from a discovery made during their 2018 diamond drill program.

The Valentine Lake Gold Camp of Marathon Gold Corp. is located approximately 55 kilometers to the southwest.

As reported on Marathon’s website, the Valentine Lake Gold Camp currently hosts four near-surface, mainly pit-shell constrained, deposits with measured and indicated resources totalling 2.7 million ounces of gold at 1.85 grams per tonne and inferred resources totalling 1.5 million ounces of gold at 1.77 grams per tonne.

Great Atlantic cautions that mineralization at the Moosehead Property and Valentine Lake Gold Camp is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Golden Promise Property.

This new report includes a mineral resource estimate for the Jaclyn Main zone, the only area within the property for which sufficient data exists to support a resource estimate.

The zone was modelled as a single quartz vein that strikes east-west and dips steeply to the south.

Modelled vein thickness was based on true thickness derived from quartz vein intercepts.

The estimate is based on 220 assays from 107 drill holes between 2002 and 2010, most of which has been preserved at a Provincial Government storage facility in Buchans.

Because part of the vein is near surface the resource estimate was constrained by a conceptual open pit to demonstrate reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction.

Generic mining costs of US$2.50 a tonne and processing costs of US$25.00 a tonne were used together with a gold price of US$1,300 per ounce.

For the capped mineral resource estimate, all assays that exceed 65 grams per tonne gold were capped at 65 grams per tonne gold.

All resources were classified as inferred because of the relatively wide spacing of drill holes through most of the zone.

Based on the combined hypothetical mining and processing costs and the assumed price of gold, a pit-constrained cutoff grade of 0.6 grams per tonne was adopted, with a resource cutoff of 1.5 grams per tonne assumed for the underground portion.

Using a weighted average cutoff of 1.1 grams per tonne resulted in inferred resource of 106,000 ounces capped and 119,900 ounces upcapped.

Gold bearing quartz veins are reported in multiple areas including at least 5 gold bearing quartz vein systems reported in one zone referred to as the Jaclyn Zone located in the northern half of the property.

Much of the reported historical exploration at the property has been focused on the Jaclyn Zone with gold bearing vein systems reported at the Jaclyn Main, Jaclyn East, Jaclyn West, Jaclyn North and Jaclyn South Sub-zones.

Significant historical work is also reported in the southwest region of the property at the Linda/Snow White vein, including grab samples reported to return 105 and 232 grams per tonne gold.

A reported channel sample returned 29.7 grams per tonne gold over half a meter, and a diamond drillhole intersected 19.5 grams per tonne gold over a 1.15 meter core length.

Gold bearing veins and gold bearing float are reported in other regions of the property.

The shares are trading at $0.075.
