Yowser! WE're Halted! News Pending.
Quite a runup before the halt.Looks like someone was snapping up all they could at the ask. Is this what we've been waiting for? Been holding this one for a long time.
Good luck

High grade gold discovered in two major veins at
Clearwater

TORONTO, ONTARIO--Eastmain Resources Inc. (TSE: ER) and SOQUEM
Inc. are pleased to announce high grade gold assay results from
surface stripping at Clearwater, Quebec. Fifty-three channel
samples taken at five- to ten-metre-intervals have confirmed
continuous ore grade gold across mineable widths on two newly
discovered veins. Clearwater is a joint venture project owned
equally by Eastmain and SOQUEM Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of
SGF Minerals.

High-grade gold has been detected throughout the newly discovered
130-metre-long P Vein. Fire assay results from X-RAY Assay
Laboratories in Rouyn-Noranda, include: 220.26 gpt gold /0.4 m
(6.43 ounces per ton), 74.4 gpt /0.6 m, 45.69 gpt /0.5 m, 17.5 gpt
/2.1 m, 22.05 gpt /2.4 m, 44.86 gpt/1.0 m and 28.22 gpt over 0.4
m. The P Vein contains an average uncut grade of 12.21 gpt (0.36
ounces) gold across a minimum two-metre mining width.

The O and Q Veins, discovered 15 metres north of P, contain ore
grade gold over mineable widths for a length of 150 metres.
Similar to the adjacent P Vein, very high gold grades were
detected throughout their lengths. These include 271.5 gpt gold /
0.4 m (7.93 ounces per ton), 64.32 gpt /2.0 m, 117.16 gpt /0.4 m,
24.31 gpt/1.7 m and 44.02 gpt /0.8 m. The O and Q Veins contain an
average grade of 10.7 gpt (0.31 ounces) gold across a mineable
width. These veins blossom at the eastern end into a
10.5-metre-wide tourmaline zone containing 3.9-gpt gold. The O, P
and Q veins are open to the west.

Stripping has also exposed the J Vein for a length of 80 metres.
High-grade gold assays within the J Vein include 38.16 gpt gold
/0.7 m and 59.68 gpt /0.70 m and a three metre wide tourmaline
zone grading 17.69 gpt gold. The J Vein, located five metres north
of O and Q, contains a drill-indicated resource of 400,000 tonnes
grading 10.03 gpt (0.29 ounces) gold (uncut).

The average grade of the new veins - O, Q and P - is consistent
with the J Vein's drill-indicated resource. Additional stripping
and detailed drilling at 25-metre-centres is required to better
evaluate the tonnage potential for the project. Discovery of the
new veins at Clearwater improves its potential to become a gold
producer.

Soquem inc. is a division of SGF Mineral inc., which is a
subsidiary of the SGF. The mission of the SGF is to carry out
economic development projects in cooperation with partners and in
accordance with accepted requirements of profitability, in

A new drilling campaign for Eastmain/Quaterra.

At the same time, Eastmain/SOQUEM are drilling Clearwater.

Statistically, they should hit something somewhere!

Re: News Release - February 25, 2000
Drilling Abitibi's Final Frontier
===========================================================================

Eastmain Resources Inc. (ER-TSE) and Quaterra Resources Inc. (QTA-VSE) are pleased to announce the initiation of the first phase of drilling on their Abitibi Extension Project, Northeastern Ontario. The project covers the western extension of the famous Abitibi Greenstone Belt, one of the most metal-endowed regions in the world. The drill program will test 12 to 15 magnetic and electromagnetic (EM) anomalies highly prospective for copper-zinc-silver-gold VMS deposits, ultramafic-hosted nickel-copper-platinum group metals and lode gold ore bodies.

The partners acquired a proprietary airborne geophysical survey from BHP Minerals in 1998. This survey included 3,775 line-kilometres of Geotem EM data and 25,000 line-kilometres of magnetic data, covering one of the final unexplored frontiers of the Canadian Shield. In April 1999, Eastmain and Quaterra staked 24,160 hectares in four large claim blocks covering all of the first and second priority targets within the Geotem survey. Two hundred line-kilometres of ground EM and magnetic surveys completed on the Nett River claim block confirm a multitude of anomalies to be drilled.

Drill targets to be tested on the Nett River Belt include an array of short and long, strong and weak EM anomalies which wrap around a strong magnetic feature interpreted as a folded iron formation. This setting is a mirror image of Placer Dome multi-million-ounce Musselwhite gold deposit in Northwestern Ontario.

Adjacent to the iron formation is a regional volcanic centre comparable to the geological setting of the Noranda and Timmins base metal mining camps. Giant copper-zinc-silver (VMS) massive sulphide deposits, ranging in size from 60 to 150 million tonnes of ore, have been discovered in both camps. This phase-one drill program will test several 500- to 1000-metre-long strong EM conductors indicative of possible base metal deposits. A second area within the Nett River Belt is underlain by a regional gravity high. Similar gravity highs also flank the Noranda and Timmins camps. Six EM targets have been identified about the margin of this gravity anomaly and are recommended for drilling.

The Nett River claim block is also prospective for massive nickel-copper-platinum group metals, as circular magnetic anomalies with associated airborne EM conductors along their margins have been detected from airborne geophysics.

Like the early days of discovery at Timmins and Noranda, this drill campaign represents a unique opportunity for the discovery of world-class gold and base metal deposits within one of the largest and richest greenstone belts of the world.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Quaterra Resources Inc.

Yes,they should. This is a well run company & I think it's going to be a winner eventually. I admire that they haven't gone .com like so many of those small mining companies. This one will survive the shakeout going on & will be stronger for it.

Eastmain Exploration Manager Catherine Butella on Quebec assays of 49.9 g/t gold over 2m

Eastmain Resources Inc TSX:ER announced assays from its Clearwater Project in northern Quebec. Results include:

49.9 g/t gold and 0.67 g/t tellurium over 2 metres (including 84.8 g/t gold and 1.08 g/t tellurium over 1 metre)

3.8 g/t gold and 4.8 g/t tellurium over 17 metres (including 19.5 g/t gold and 23 g/t tellurium over 2.5 metres)

9.25 g/t gold and 10.7 g/t tellurium over 4.3 metres (including 22.6 g/t gold and 25.9 g/t tellurium over 1.5 metres)

6.77 g/t gold and 0.57 g/t tellurium over 4 metres (including 52.8 g/t gold and 0.01 g/t tellurium over 0.5 metres)

The project has an April 2011 resource estimate of 3.35 million tonnes grading 5.39 g/t for 582,000 ounces gold measured and indicated, and 5.32 million tonnes grading 5.96 g/t for 1.02 million ounces inferred.

This article came out in spring prior to any of the current drilling and discovery of newly trenched zones.

proactiveinvestors.com

A few excerpts

With a current total global metal resource fast approaching 2 million ounces of gold (0.5 g/t cut-off grade sensitivity) and the ultimate potential now in the 3- to 5-million-ounce range, the updated mineral resource estimate clearly demonstrates Eau Claire’s potential for both open pit and underground mineral resources at significant grade.


Within the Open Pit resource, capped grades at the Measured category of 6.05 g/t are 60% higher than those of the Indicated owing to tighter drill spacing and larger core diameters. In fact near the surface where there has been extensive sampling, there is 150,000 tonnes of rock containing 118,000 ounces of gold at 24.6 g/t within the P to S veins.

Meanwhile, Eau Claire’s underground resource estimates remain robust with total underground resources including 4.548 million tonnes at 7.08 g/t capped grade containing 1.03 million ounces of gold (1.04 million ounces of gold at 7.11 g/t uncapped).

Eau Claire’s grades are healthy. To put matters in perspective, grades of Measured and Indicated resources at the Detour Lake Gold Project for instance are 1.39 g/t and 0.99 g/t (cut-off grade 0.5 g/t) while those of the Rainy River project are 1.21g/t and 1.0 g/t (open pit) respectively. Grades of Measured and Indicated resources of Rainy River for underground are 5.66 g/t and 5.18 g/t respectively.

Again older as it gives no value to current drill campaign or any of the Tellerium.

Other offering done on very good terms. I'd actually like to see them raise more and do a huge campaign on Clearwater. New zones are a game changer.

eastmain.com

Had 13 mil in kitty, 10 by end of year so this is just to make sure they don't get screwed with. I would have figured they would have waited till 1.75+, but given these terms I'm ok. Stock should go to 1.75 in a month or less given where this offering took place.
