Galantas Gold Drills 13.1 Grams/Tonne Gold Over a 2.5-Metre Intersection at the Omagh Project






Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:GAL) (AIM: GAL) (OTCQX: GALKF) is pleased to announce the results for the first hole from the new surface drill program at the Omagh Project in Northern Ireland.


Hole FR-DD-23-196 targeted a gap in the earlier resource model on the main Joshua Vein, intersecting 13.1 grams per tonne gold and 91.6 g/t silver over 2.5 metres (see Table 1 and Figure 1).


The hole passes through an undrilled area of the earlier resource model and falls within a predicted dilation zone* (see Galantas news release dated August 10, 2023). Other significant results attained within this dilation trend include hole OM-DD-12-122 which intersected 21.2 g/t Au over 2.1 metres, hole OM-DD-13-147 which intersected 12.4 g/t Au over 5.6 metres, and hole OM-DD-12-103 which intersected 8.4 g/t Au over 26.6 metres (see Figure 2 and Galantas news releases dated June 11, 2012, October 29, 2012 and August 27, 2013).


Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “We are pleased with the encouraging early results of our new drill program from surface. As we continue drilling on the Joshua Vein, we will test the down-dip potential of this dilation zone with the aim of expanding the resource to ultimately add to the Omagh Mine’s production capacity.”


*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.

  1. Drill hole was NQ size and drilled using a triple tube method to maximize core recovery. The samples were analyzed (gold by fire assay and other metals by ICP-ORE) at ALS Laboratory Ltd (ISO 17025) of Galway, Ireland.
  2. Intersect vertical depth intervals are from ground surface to the top of the mineralized zone.
  3. Data has been rounded to 1 decimal place.
  4. All assays are reported without application of a top cut.
