GATLING EXPLORATION INC. (TSX-V: GTR) (OTC: GATGF) is pleased to report new high-grade results from its largest step-out drill hole to date at the Bear deposit, including 10.6 g/t Au over 5.0 meters. This step-out hole expands the high-grade mineralization at the Bear deposit 200 meters west towards the Cheminis deposit. As a result, the North Zone at the Bear deposit has now reached 600 meters along strike.
Nathan Tribble, VP Exploration for Gatling, stated, “Hitting such strong grades with our biggest step out to date is extremely encouraging. The successful results also represent the start of a new phase of step out drilling, designed to test the theory that our three deposits – Fernland, Cheminis and Bear – are all connected as one, very large mineralized system.”

*Stated lengths are core lengths as drilled. True widths are estimated to be 60 to 80% of reported core length intervals.
The North zone displays strong silica-sericite-graphite alteration with cross cutting veins and brecciated texture throughout. The upper and lower contacts are both sharp and the North zone has multiple occurrences of visible gold (Figure 1).

Drill core is logged and sampled at the Larder project site. Core samples from the program are cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw with half sent for assay at ActLabs in Timmins, Ontario. The other half is secured and retained on site. All samples are analyzed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AA techniques. Samples returning greater than 5.0 g/t gold are analyzed utilizing standard Fire Assay-Gravimetric methods. Certified reference standards and blanks are routinely inserted into the sample stream as part of Gatling’s quality control/quality assurance program.
