Great Atlantic Resources has released analytical results for the final batch of drill core samples from the recent diamond drill program at its Keymet Precious-Base Metal Property.

The 3,400 hectare property, located approximately 20 kilometres northwest of Bathurst, in northeastern New Brunswick, Canada, has excellent access with paved roads, including a provincial highway, transecting the property.

The Keymet property, site of the historic Keymet Mine, hosts multiple gold, silver, zinc, lead and copper occurrences.

The drill program, consisting of 5 holes totalling 679 metres, was conducted in the northwest region of the property, northwest of the historic Keymet Mine.

The results from the final 3 holes, include the discovery of a new high grade vein in Ky-17-8, which returned 18.8% zinc, 1.16% lead, 3.55% copper and 576 grams per tonne silver over a 1.27 metre core length.

This included 26.0% zinc, 1.36% lead, 5.13% copper and 834 grams per tonne silver over a .87 metre core length.

The 2017 program tested the continuation of zinc, copper and silver bearing veins and a gold mineralization intersected by Great Atlantic during 2015 diamond drilling and trenching programs.

Each of the 2017 holes intersected veins containing base metal sulfides and local disseminated arsenopyrite mineralization.

Previous assays from the first 2 holes with highlights including 7.59% zinc equivalency consisting of 3.54% zinc, 0.92% copper, 0.28% lead, and 115.6 grams per tonne silver, over 12.05 metres in hole Ky-17-6, along with the discovery of a new gold bearing zone of 0.64 grams per tonne gold over 19.96 metres in hole Ky-17-6.

Gold mineralization on the property is associated with arsenopyrite with previous Great Atlantic boulder samples returning up to 51 grams per tonne gold.

Hole Ky-17-8, located approximately 80 metres southwest of holes, Ky-17-5, 6, and 7, tested the downdip extension of a gold bearing zone discovered in a 2015 trench, and was the location of the new high grade vein.

Drilling in 2015 returned 16.68% zinc, 1.11% copper, and 152 grams per tonne silver over a 1.8 metre core length, along with 3.28 grams per tonne gold over a 2.1 metre core length, from Hole 15-3

Hole 15-04 returned 8.68% zinc and 44.8 grams per tonne silver over a 4.28 metre core length at about 90 metres into the hole, and approximately 35 metres vertically under the main vein intersected in hole 15-03.

In the 1980s, closed-spaced drilling by previous operators intersected near-surface mineralized veins in the area of the Elmtree 12 base metal and silver bearing vein occurrence.

A 0.88 metre core length from 1981 reported 11.36% zinc, 7.72% copper, and 13.6 ounces per ton silver.

In 1989, a 1.22 metre core length sample from a near-by drill hole reported 10.11% zinc, 16.4% copper, and 31 ounces per ton silver.

All Great Atlantic drill intersections to date are within an approximately 70 metre strike length and shallow depth, less than 100 metres in vertical depth.

A fault zone was also exposed in the trench hosting base metal and silver mineralization, where a 2015 grab sample returned 8.99% lead, 1.76% zinc, 0.8% copper and 237 grams per tonne silver.

The shares are trading at $0.10.
