VANCOUVER, April 5 /PRNewswire/ - GREENLIGHT RESOURCES INC. (TSXV: GR) is pleased to announce it has signed a drilling agreement with Maritime Diamond Drilling Ltd. of Brookfield, Nova Scotia. A diamond drill program on GreenLight's Kemptville gold property in Nova Scotia, has now commenced. The program consists of approximately 2,500 meters of cored drilling in nine holes. Targets to be tested include coincident anomalies from the Company's recent IP survey and SGH (soil-gas-hydrocarbons) soil sampling survey, which have been integrated into a 3D model utilized to identify the locations.
The first hole has been completed and drilling has commenced on the second hole. The gold property, located north of the village of Kemptville, encompasses one of Nova Scotia's historic gold mining districts, and is less than a 20 minute drive along a paved highway from the Company's Brazil Lake Lithium and rare metal property.
About GreenLight Resources Inc.:
Gold Project - Kemptville
On November 5, 2010, the Company, announced a letter of intent to acquire a high grade gold prospect located in one of Nova Scotia's historic gold mining districts. The Property is comprised of 127 claims (40 acres each) for a total of 5,080 acres. High grade gold was discovered on the property over 100 years ago and was produced primarily in the late 1800's from two underground mines, the Kempt and the Cowan. Modern exploration techniques were used to identify a target area between the two former producers featuring numerous high grade angular float boulders, several of which have assayed over 300 g/t (grams per tonne) (about 9 ounces/ton) Au. Recent bulk till sampling over an area approximately three square kilometres has identified a very large "gold in till" anomaly measuring approximately 800 meters in width and extending 2,000 meters down ice. It is centered in an area between the two former mines, coincident with the area of high grade float. A recent IP survey conducted by Greenlight identified several anomalies which have been targeted for drilling. This was followed by an SGH (soil-gas-hydrocarbons) soil sampling survey carried out in order to discriminate between potentially auriferous and non auriferous IP highs and to identify the source area of the gold in till anomalies.
Lithium and Rare Metals Project
GreenLight Resources Inc. is a Canadian exploration company focused on the discovery and development of Lithium and rare metal deposits. The Company is currently focused on the 8,520 acre Brazil Lake property located approximately 30 kilometres north of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Drilling to date has successfully revealed two Lithium bearing pegmatite dikes. In addition to Lithium, the dikes host several other rare metals such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium, tungsten tin and rubidium. Metallurgical bench testing to date has also revealed other potential economic targets, including cosmetic grade mica, silica chloride, aluminum chloride and rubidium enriched potassium feldspar.
Rare Earth Element Project
On October 15th 2010, the Company announced the signing of a letter of intent to earn up to a 100% undivided interest in the Porcupine-Upper Miramichi Rare Earth Property in New Brunswick. The primary target is the various rare earth elements (REE) that were discovered in soil samples on the property in 2007. Soil assays for REE's include Samarium (Sm), were reported with grades of up to 218 ppm (g/t) and Dysprosium (Dy) with grades of up to 98.6 ppm (g/t), Neodymium (Nd) with grades of up to 1190 ppm (g/t), Ytterbium (Yb) with grades of up to 31.3 ppm (g/t) and Yttrium (Y) with grades of up to 472 ppm (g/t). Reported assays for Heavy REE's include Terbium (Tb) with grades up to 20.3 ppm (g/t) and Ytterbium (Yb) with grades up to 31.3 ppm (g/t) while reported light rare earth metals include Cerium (Ce) with grades up to 459 ppm (g/t) and Lanthanum (La) with grades up to 1,300 ppm (g/t).
