Great Atlantic Intersects Visible Gold in First 2020 Drill Hole At The Jacklyn North Zone - Assays Pending Central Newfoundland
VANCOUVER, November 16, 2020 - GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV:GR) (the "Company" or "Great Atlantic") is pleased to announce it has intersected visible gold in the first hole of the Fall 2020 Phase 2 diamond drilling program at its Golden Promise Gold Property, located within the central Newfoundland gold belt. The first hole of the program (GP20-146) was completed at the Jaclyn North Zone, testing the continuation of gold bearing quartz veins along strike to the east. The drill hole intersected quartz veins / quartz veined intervals (+/- carbonate) with sulfide mineralization. Visible gold is evident in one quartz vein.
The Jaclyn North Zone (JNZ) is part of the Jaclyn Zone, being located within the northern region of the Golden Promise Property. The Jaclyn Zone hosts five gold bearing quartz veins systems, including the JNZ. The JNZ is reported to strike slightly northeast, being located approximately 250 meters north of the Jaclyn Main Zone. GP20-146 was collared approximately 50 meters east of the eastern-most historic JNZ drill hole. GP20-146 was drilled slightly southeast at a 50-degree dip to a length of a 140 Meters.
GP20-146 intersected quartz veins / quartz veined intervals (+/- carbonate) at various depths (individual vein intersections being up to approximately 0.9 meters core length) with pyrite, arsenopyrite and / or pyrrhotite, thereby extending the Jaclyn North Zone vein system approximately 50 meters east. The most prominent single vein was intersected at 75.7 -76.6 meters (0.9 meters core length). A zone of increased veining was intersected at 101.3 - 113.0 meters (11.7 meters core length). Visible gold was intersected within a 5-centimeter thick quartz - carbonate vein at 122.25 meters.
Drill core from GP20-146 has been geologically logged and sampled. Drill core samples along with inserted standard and blank samples were recently submitted to Eastern Analytical Ltd. in Springdale, NL for gold assay and multi-element analysis. Drill hole GP20-147 is currently underway approximately 50 meters east of GP20-146.
