Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:GAL) (AIM: GAL) (OTCQX: GALKF) is pleased to announce results for a hole drilled from an underground platform within the second level of the Kearney Vein development at the Omagh Project in Northern Ireland.
Hole FR-DD-23-UG-193 intersected 19.8 grams per tonne gold and 11.3 g/t silver over 1.7 metres targeting the Kearney B-lens (see Table 1 and Figure 1). This is the most northerly intersection in the latest underground drill program, and provides important information on the course and continuity of mineralization outside the main Kearney Vein.
A new surface drilling program is underway at Omagh to test a predicted dilation zone at the Joshua Vein which has potential to host higher widths of mineralization (see Galantas’ news release dated June 22, 2023).
Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “Our drill program continues to yield positive results, improving our understanding of the high-grade gold mineralization below the Omagh mine. We’re pleased with the outcome of this final underground hole at the main Kearney Vein as we transition our drill program from underground to surface to target the other main Joshua Vein and potentially add to the number of dilation zones previously delineated from historical drilling. We look forward to reporting on these drill results as they become available.”
