Released on the Junior Mining Network by Great Atlantic Resources

Vancouver, British Columbia March 5, 2024 – Great Atlantic Resources (“GAR” or the “Company”) (TSX.GR), is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Golden Promise Mines Inc. (“GPM”), a gold development company which wholly owns several projects in Central Newfoundland is planning a bulk sample the Jaclyn Main Zone deposit (the “Project”) for Q4 2024 in partnership with Novamera Inc. (“Novamera”).

The Project contains an NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate of 119,900 inferred ounces at 10.4 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold (See Company news release dated December 6, 2018).

To extract the approximately 3,000 tonne bulk sample, GAR will use a precision mining method, powered by Novamera’s proprietary Surgical Mining technologies. The bulk sample will provide mining and metallurgical data to inform future economic and technical studies to advance the Project to a production decision. The sample is being funded in part by co-investment from DIGITAL, Canada’s Global Innovation Cluster for digital technologies, as part of a larger project that aims to support data-driven and digital solutions within the mining sector.

Benefits of Surgical Mining

Surgical Mining is an economic option for bringing steeply dipping narrow vein deposits into production, such as the Jaclyn Main Zone. The innovative solution is a lower capex and faster path to production, while also radically reducing environmental and social impact. Given the minimal upfront development costs, Surgical Mining enables junior mining companies to get into production and generate cash flow, offering a second source of cash and relying less on the capital markets to fund strategic plans. In addition, the time to permit can be reduced because of the small footprint and scale of the operation.

“We are pleased to advance our bulk sample program at the Jaclyn Main Zone using this disruptive and transformative new mining method” says Chris Anderson, Great Atlantic Resources CEO. “We are happy to be partnering with Novamera to showcase the potential of small-footprint mining in Canada.”

“We’re excited to be working with Great Atlantic to demonstrate the potential for Surgical Mining to unlock new mining opportunities. The Bulk Sample in partnership with Great Atlantic will be key to showing how Surgical Mining can economically support the increased production of minerals and metals and meet growing global demand, quickly and sustainably” says Dustin Angelo, Novamera CEO.

Jaclyn Main Zone

The Jaclyn Main Zone (or the Project) is part of the Golden Promise Gold Property (the “Property”) owned by GAR’s subsidiary GPM. The Property is located within the central Newfoundland gold belt, near the town of Badger. Multiple gold bearing quartz veins/quartz vein systems and zones of gold bearing quartz boulders are reported within the Property. One such quartz vein system is the Jaclyn Main Zone. GAR reported a 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate for the Project during December 2018 (119,900 ounces gold, Inferred resource). Multiple 2017 GAR quartz samples from different regions of the Property exceeded 1 ounce per tonne gold. Diamond drilling in 2019 tested a

section of the Project, with high-grade gold intersected in multiple holes, including core-length intersections of:

· 35 g/t gold / 2.04 meters

· 80 g/t gold / 2.70 meters

· 7 g/t gold / 0.55 meters

· 2.30 g/t gold / 25.25 meters
