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).
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.”
