Galantas Gold Drills 26.7 g/t Gold Over 2.9 Metres on the Kearney Vein System






Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V:GAL) (AIM: GAL) (OTCQX: GALKF) is pleased to announce results for the second underground hole in its ongoing 4,000-metre drilling program at the Omagh Project in Northern Ireland.


Drilling highlights:


The second hole was drilled from the lowest level in the underground development at the Kearney Vein and returned two intersections:

  • 26.7 grams per tonne gold, 88.2 g/t silver and 3.5% lead over 2.9 metres; including 79.5 g/t Au, 281.4 g/t Ag and 10.6% Pb over 0.9 metres (see Table 1 for details). This result demonstrates further continuity to a zone of mineralization running parallel to the main Kearney Vein, which was also intercepted in the first hole FR-DD-21-UG-168 of 17.7 g/t Au, 50.9 g/t Ag and 4.6% Pb over 2.5 metres (see news release on October 11).
  • The second, deeper intersect, hit the main Kearney Vein within the inferred resource and returned 5.8 g/t Au, 14.2 g/t Ag and 0.2% Pb over 1.8 metres.


Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “The additional high-grade intercept in a parallel vein with continuity demonstrates the potential to discover additional high-grade mineralization at Omagh and expand the gold resources as the Company advances its plans to commence mining early in the new year. With the deposit remaining open on strike and to depth, Galantas’ Omagh Project provides the rare opportunity to significantly grow high-grade resources while producing gold.”

  1. Drill holes were HQ size and drilled using a triple tube method to maximise 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 depths intervals are from ground surface to the top of the mineralized zone.
  3. Data has been rounded to 1 decimal place.
  4. The Company has only received assays for the first two underground holes of the drill program.
