Galantas Gold Drills 22.5 Grams/Tonne Gold Over 2.7 Metres Within a 11.5-Metre Intersection






Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:GAL) (AIM: GAL) (OTCQX: GALKF) is pleased to announce the results for three holes drilled from underground platforms within the Kearney Vein development at the Omagh Project in Northern Ireland.


Drilling highlights:

  • Hole FR-DD-22-UG-192, targeted within the northern dilation zone*, intersected 6.2 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) and 46.6 g/t silver (Ag) over a 11.1-metre intersection (see Table 1 and Figure 1). This includes a higher grade section of 22.5 g/t Au and 170.8 Ag over 2.7 metres.
  • A deeper intersection on hole FR-DD-22-UG-192 recorded 14.4 g/t Au over 1.1 metres (see Table 1 and Figure 2); future drilling will test the continuity of this new zone of mineralization.
  • Hole FR-DD-22-UG-190 hit the B-lens outside of the current resource model with an intersection of 5 g/t Au over 1.7 metres, extending the B-lens 16 metres south of hole FR-DD-22-UG-187 (see Galantas’ news release dated October 24, 2022).


Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “Our exploration program at Omagh is consistently delivering solid gold grades, allowing us to hone in on further targets for follow-up drilling that is ongoing. As expected, this underexplored deposit continues to yield promising results, particularly at the main Kearney Vein and the B-lens, which is another vein running parallel to Kearney. We are excited to incorporate these results in our future mineral resource update to also help optimize our mine plan.”


*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 holes were HQ 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.
  5. One of the reported intersections has an abnormally high core loss that may bias (either positively or negatively) the assay value for that intersection, and thus may not be fully representative of the true intersect value.
