Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:GAL) (AIM: GAL) (OTCQX: GALKF) is pleased to announce results from its ongoing 4,000-metre drilling program at the Omagh Project in Northern Ireland.
Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “We are very pleased with the continued success of our exploration program which continues to demonstrate high-grade mineralization at Omagh, particularly high-grade gold in wider dilation zones at both Kearney and Joshua veins. We look forward to providing further updates on drill results and our mine production plan in the near future as we advance this unique opportunity to significantly grow high-grade resources at Joshua and Kearney, which remain open on strike and to depth, while also producing gold.”
Dilation zones which have potential for higher widths of mineralization have previously been identified within the Kearney underground development and are believed to be linked on shallow north-dipping planes (see press release on May 6, 2020). Figure 1 illustrates the location of hole FR-DD-21-171 on a potential dilation trend within the Joshua Vein, relative to other key intersections, including hole OM-DD15-155 drilled in 2015, which returned 9.9 g/t Au over 21.6 metres (estimated true width of 13 metres).
The dilation zones identified at the Joshua Vein, located approximately 400 metres from the main Kearney Vein, are expected to be incorporated into mine planning and future mine development, including potential plans to drill Joshua from underground to advance mining and resource expansion. The underground development in Kearney is 370 metres from the Joshua Vein, of which 152 metres have already been advanced in the cross cut, with 218 metres of development remaining to reach the Joshua Vein.
