Gatling drills 101.3 m of 1.1 g/t Au of widespread near surface mineralization at Larder Gold Project

Jan 27, 2021

GATLING EXPLORATION INC. has drilled widespread gold within a strike length in excess of 1,200 m at the Fernland deposit. The mineralization, which was intercepted at surface, occurs within three defined zones hosting multiple lenses. Results include 1.1 g/t Au over 101.3 m at Zone 1, and the Company is awaiting assays from Zone 2, located 400 m east. The holes are part of Gatling's current strategy of testing continuity and evaluating near surface potential across all three high-grade deposits, beginning with the underexplored Fernland deposit.

Jason Billan, President and CEO for Gatling, commented, "These initial results from our ongoing 25,000 m drill program corroborate the recent shift in exploration strategy to prioritize the significant amount of near surface potential at Larder. This decision aligns well with numerous other deposits in the region that host both open pit as well as underground resources, such as Agnico Eagle's Upper Beaver deposit, Moneta Porcupine's Golden Highway deposits, and QMX's Bonnefond deposit. As a result, I am excited to continue updating the market with our latest drilling as we test the growth potential at Larder with a clear focus on showcasing the compelling value proposition for investors."
