Gatling Extends Bear Deposit 750 m West and 500 m towards surface with 11.2 g/t Au over 5.0 m






GATLING EXPLORATION INC. (TSX-V: GTR) (OTC: GATGF) is pleased to report that drilling has extended the Bear deposit by 500 meters up plunge from its main body of mineralization and by nearly one kilometer to the west near surface (Figures 1 and 2). Drill hole GTR-19-023 intersected 11.2 g/t Au over 5.0 meters while hole GTR-19-022 encountered 8.3 g/t Au over 2.0 meters and 5.1 g/t Au over 3.0 meters within 150 meters of surface (Table 1).


News Highlights


  • Deposit Extended by Large Step Out: The Bear deposit – one of three gold deposits at Larder – has been extended 750 meters west and 500 meters up plunge by hole GTR-19-023
  • Continuity and High-Grade Mineralization Between Deposits: Holes GTR-19-023 and GTR-19-022 were drilled between the Bear and Cheminis deposits. Excellent widths and grades were encountered in this important target area, which has little to no past drill information.
  • Drill Results Indicate Mineralization Extends Up Plunge Much Closer to Surface. Previous operators had interpreted that the Bear Lake Fault offset the upper limits of the Bear deposit. This new drilling demonstrates that while the fault does exist, there is little to no offset and that mineralization can be accurately projected up plunge towards surface.


Further assay results are anticipated for drilling completed at near surface targets at Cheminis and Fernland zone extensions. Drilling continues to focus on proving that mineralization between the Fernland, Cheminis and Bear deposits are part of a continuous, multi-lens system with a strike length greater than four kilometers (Figure 3).


Dale Ginn, COO, stated “We have further extended the Bear deposit – this time nearly one kilometer west and much closer to surface. The new holes encountered strong grades and widths and are particularly important because the plunge direction of the mineralized lenses is becoming predictable, which in turn help us to target further expansions.”
