Great Atlantic Resources has completed an additional 4 holes of its 2021 diamond drill program at its Golden Promise Gold property in Central Newfoundland, with visible gold continuing to be evident in quartz veins.

The 100% owned Golden Promise Property is 1 of the company’s 8 properties, which cover an area of 25,700 hectares, located within the central Newfoundland gold belt.

These holes are a part of Phase 2 diamond drilling at the gold bearing Jaclyn Zone, located within the northern region of the Golden Promise Property, which hosts five gold bearing quartz veins systems, being the Jaclyn Main, Jaclyn North, Jaclyn South, Jaclyn East and Jaclyn West Zones.

The current Phase 2 drilling will include up to 33 drill holes, totalling approximately 5,000 metres, at the gold bearing Jaclyn Zone with holes planned at the Jaclyn Main Zone and Jaclyn North Zone.

Holes GP-21-152 and 153 were completed at the Jaclyn Main Zone, both being definition holes.

Hole GP-21-152 intersected a quartz veined zone between 46.9 to 49.6 metres.

Hole GP-21-153 intersected multiple quartz veins with visible gold present at two locations, within a quartz vein intersected between 44.00 and 46.63 metres, and again within a zone of predominantly quartz veins between 66.90 and 74.48 metres.

Most of the planned holes at the Jaclyn Main Zone are within the central to west region of the zone, testing above 200 metres vertical depth.

Two holes are planned in the east part of the Jaclyn Main Zone to test the zone at 200 to 350 metres vertical depth.

Holes GP-21-154 and 155 were completed at the Jaclyn North Vein near the west margin of a zone of gold bearing quartz boulders.

Both holes intersected sulfide bearing quartz veins, with visible gold present in a quartz vein in GP-21-154.

The company collected gold bearing quartz boulder samples in this area during 2017, including samples returning 163, 208 and 332 grams per tonne and again in 2020 including samples returning 17.4, 26.7 and 157.6 grams per tonne gold.

Great Atlantic confirmed high-grade gold at the Jaclyn Main Zone during 2019 drilling, including near surface intercepts of 113.07 grams per tonne gold over 0.55 metres and 61.35 grams per tonne gold over 2.04 metres, and 15.8 grams per tonne gold over 2.70 metres, plus an interval of multiple gold bearing veins in GP-19-140 averaging 2.30 grams per tonne gold over 25.25 metres.

The company reported a NI 43-101 compliant inferred resource estimate during late 2018 for the Jaclyn Main Zone of 357,500 tonnes at 10.4 grams per tonne gold for 119,000 ounces uncapped.

The Golden Promise Property is located within a region of recent significant gold discoveries.

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.

Recent significant gold discoveries within the Exploits Subzone include those of Marathon Gold Corp. at the Valentine Gold Project, Sokoman Minerals Corp. (TSXV.SIC) at the Moosehead Gold Project and New Found Gold Corp. at the Queensway Project.

Viewers are warned that mineralization at the Valentine Gold Project, the Moosehead Gold Project, the Queensway Project, and elsewhere within the Exploits Subzone is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the company’s Golden Promise Property.

Great Atlantic, with a number of properties in the Atlantic provinces, is utilizing a Project Generation model, with a special focus on critical elements which are prominent in Atlantic Canada, such as Antimony, Tungsten and Gold.

The shares are trading at $0.445.
