Great Atlantic starts drilling at Glenelg vanadium project

Great Atlantic Resources (TSXV:GR) announced this week it has started Phase 1 of its diamond drilling program on the Glenelg vanadium property, located in New Brunswick, eastern Canada.

In a press release, Great Atlantic said the program, partially funded through the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program, will test areas of vanadium and titanium bearing outcrop and magnetic geophysical anomalies.

The campaign is being conducted in the southeast region of Glenelg, within the Bocabec Gabbro Complex. 

“Company and reported historic bedrock grab samples from this region of the property returned significant levels of vanadium and titanium. Highlights include vanadium, titanium & iron mineralization in layered Bocabec Gabbro complex; company & historic bedrock grab samples of 0.33% & 0.42% V2O5 & 27.5% TiO2; historic bedrock grab samples of 14 g/t Au, 1.28% Bi & 0.65% Co,” the media brief reads. 

Glenelg is located approximately 20 kilometres east of the town of St. Stephen and approximately 15 kilometres northwest of Great Atlantic’s Mascarene property, which hosts multiple mineral occurrences with cobalt, copper, nickel, zinc, lead, gold and or silver.

Earlier this year, the Vancouver-based miner tripled Glenelg’s size by additional mineral claim staking to reach 3,500 hectares.
