Greenbank’s Portfolio Company Ubique Minerals Lists on the CSE and Commences 2018 Drilling Program

Greenbank’s Portfolio Company Ubique Minerals Lists on the CSE and Commences 2018 Drilling Program

 This news release is not for distribution or dissemination in the Unites States of America

Toronto, Ontario (FSCwire) - GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA: 2TL)  (“GreenBank or the Company”) announces that Ubique Minerals Limited (CSE: UBQ) ("Ubique” ) announces it has listed its common shares on the Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE”). The public listing by Ubique will allow investors to follow the affairs of the company more closely and in particular the progress of exploration for zinc at its Daniel’s Harbour Property in Newfoundland.


 “This is an exciting time for Ubique, and I would remind holders of Ubique A Warrants that they have 10 days from today to exercise their warrants after which these warrants will expire” said Gerald Harper, CEO of Ubique.


The Company has commenced its 2018 drilling program, and recently mobilised a diamond drill to the property. The program follows up drilling as recommended in the NI 43-101 report by Stuckless (2017), copies of which are available on the Ubique website at


The initial 2017 diamond drilling program intersected zinc mineralization in six of the nine holes drilled in the Ubique claims known as the P Zone. Ubique hole UM-4-17 had an exceptionally high grade interval averaging 13.6% zinc over 12.2 metres, including individual 0.8 metre assay intervals as high as 35% zinc. All holes were drilled vertically and are believed to have intersected approximately true thicknesses of mineralization. Depths of intersections ranged between 50 and 65 metres below surface. A complete summary of the results of the drill holes is given below.


Six of the 2017 drill holes were drilled to test an interpreted easterly trend of mineralization extending east from the mined-out area of the P Zone. These were all successful in intersecting zinc values suggestive of a continuous deposit. This trend has been named the P-East Zone and will be one of the targets for the 2018 drill program. Other 2018 targets include the P-North Zone and the Muddy Pond Zone where historic, wide-spaced diamond drilling intersected the same favourable host environment as the P Zone. Three of the 2017 drill holes were targeted at an interpreted trend of mineralization extending north from the mined out area of the P Zone. They all intersected altered, brecciated rocks, typical of those hosting zinc mineralization elsewhere in the Daniel’s Harbour mine area, but none of these three holes revealed zinc values suggestive of a deposit.


Prior to the 2018 diamond drilling program commencing, company personnel have been searching for, locating and surveying the positions of many old diamond drill holes. These are being plotted up, so as to integrate their information and reported zinc values into the overall interpretation of the mineralized trends. Personnel are also extending the geochemical soil survey which was initiated last year in the Tilt Pond area of the Eastern Mineral Licenses and which revealed two anomalous areas.

All 2017 program drill holes were drilled vertically and all are interpreted to have intersected approximately true widths of the mineralized zone.  The Ubique website contains plans and sections showing the recent drilling and photographs of some of the sphalerite mineralized core.


Ubique owns 109 claims located in the Daniel’s Harbour area covering 27 sq kms, in two blocks. The P Zone is where Ubique completed its 2017 drilling program, the highlight of which was a true width intersection of 13.6% Zinc over 12.2 metres including 17.43% Zinc over 8.6m.  The zinc mineralization intersected in the 2017 drilling program is a very pale coloured sphalerite, and characteristic of a low-iron Mississippi-Valley-Type carbonate rock geological environment analogous to many large deposits in north America. Approximately 7,000,000 tonnes averaging 7.8% zinc have been mined from the Daniels Harbour mine adjacent to Ubique’s claims, and which was milled on site and shipped as a very high grade concentrate from nearby deep water port facilities to a custom zinc smelter.

Dr. Gerald Harper, P.Geo.(Ont), the CEO of Ubique, is the qualified person as defined by NI 43-101 responsible for the technical data presented herein and has reviewed and approved this release.
