Gatling Exploration finds high-grade gold at its Cheminis deposit

Aug 21, 2019

Gatling Exploration announced it has discovered promising levels of high-grade gold at its Chemnis deposit in the Cadilac- Larder Lake mining area in northeasern, Ontario. 
 
Results from its  drilling program  at the Cheminis deposit  yielded 12.3 g/t of gold over five metres including 18.1 g/t over 3.0 meters.  The drill results are from an area 2 km to the west of the Bear Deposit, where drilling continues to probe down plunge and strike extensions. 
 
The Cheminis mine has numerous historical levels and the new drill results established up dip continuity to the main workings, which exhibit superior grades and widths. The Cheminis mine historically has over 3,000 meters of development with 6 main levels, multiple stopes and a shaft.
 
Gatling's new drill program at Cheminis has extended the up-dip continuity of zone A. Further drilling will test this mineralized horizon as well as down dip extensions of all 4 zones.
 
All three holes drilled at the Cheminis deposit to date have intersected gold mineralization within the upper 50 meters. The gold bearing units can be traced on surface for over 400 meters along strike within the historical Cheminis mine site. 
The down plunge extension of the South Flow zone D will be explored this winter and has a current depth component over 500 meters below the deepest underground working.
 
"Our first results from the Cheminis area, located over 2 km west of ongoing drilling at the Bear Deposit, have been extremely successful on a number of fronts,' said Nav Dhaliwal, CEO. "We have demonstrated excellent widths and grades very close to surface and have projected the "A" zone upwards from older partially developed levels at Cheminis.  We look forward to following up on these results and continuing to find wide, high grade results near surface."
 
Gatling Exploration is a Canadian gold exploration company focused on advancing the Larder Gold Project, located in the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt in Northern Ontario. The Larder property hosts three high-grade gold deposits along the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break, 35 kilometers east of Kirkland Lake. The project is 100% controlled by Gatling and is comprised of patented and unpatented claims, leases and mining licenses of occupation within the McVittie and McGarry Townships. The 3,370-hectare project area is positioned 7 kilometers west of the Kerr Addison Mine, which produced 11 million ounces of gold. All parts of the Larder property are accessible by truck or all-terrain vehicles on non-serviced roads and trails.
