Gatling Intersects High-Grade Gold at Fernland: Further Validating and Extending 4.5 km Scale Mineralized Footprint at Larder Project






GATLING EXPLORATION INC. (TSX-V: GTR) (OTCQX: GATGF) is pleased to announce initial drill results from Fernland, at the Larder gold project in Ontario, Canada. High-grade, near surface gold mineralization has been intersected within a broader widespread mineralized zone, including 11.9 g/t Au over 4.0 meters. These results confirm mineralization 2 kilometers west of the Cheminis deposit and further extend the 4.5 kilometer mineralized footprint at Larder. Importantly, the strength and location of these results facilitates an aggressive step out drilling strategy along trend to fill the gap between the Fernland and Cheminis deposits.  


News Highlights


  • Near Surface Mineralization with Phase I Drilling at Fernland: Drilling encountered a combination of high-grade and widespread gold mineralization within 50 meters of surface
  • High-grade mineralization encountered at western extent of 4.5 kilometer strike: Fernland intercepts align with known mineralized zones at Cheminis, indicating potential continuity between deposits. Future drilling will concentrate on stepping out along trend in order to fill in 400 meter distance between zones.
  • Historical Exploration at Fernland: Historic near surface drilling at Fernland includes 3.3 g/t Au over 12.2 meters (FL-88-47), 4.3 g/t Au over 6.3 meters (FL-88-61) and 2.2 g/t Au over 13.4 meters. More than 20,000 meters have been drilled at Fernland, none of which are included in the historic resource estimates at the Larder Gold project.


Nav Dhaliwal, President and CEO, stated “We are very pleased with the initial drill results from Fernland – one of three high-grade gold deposits at our Larder project. The location of these successful drill holes is a strong indicator of continuity between the Fernland and Cheminis zones and allows us to aggressively target the remaining gap between these zones.
