Vancouver - GATLING EXPLORATION INC. (TSXV: GTR, OTCQB: GATGF) (the 'Company' or 'Gatling) is pleased to announce additional gold mineralization with continuity from surface.
Results include 114.3 m of 0.8 g/t Au starting at just 3.7 m below surface in hole GTR-21-097.
This drillhole is located in Zone 3 of Fernland, 650 m East of Zone 1 and 300 m East of Zone 2 where recent drilling intersected 170.0 m of 1.5 g/t Au and 101.3 m of 1.1 g/t Au within 30 meters of surface. These results confirm the presence of widespread, near surface mineralization over an increasing area at Fernland - one of three gold deposits along an unbroken 4.5 km mineralized trend at Gatling's Larder gold project.
Jason Billan, President and CEO for Gatling, commented, 'Fernland continues to deliver robust drill results over long intersections thus far in the program, which is consistent with our company's objective to develop the untapped open pit potential at Larder. We expect to release follow-up results at Zones 2 and 3 in the coming weeks at Fernland before shifting focus to the Bear deposit later next month.'
