Gatling Exploration Inc reveals high-grade gold interceptions of up to 25.3 grams per tonne at the Bear deposit on the Larder gold project in Ontario
The company also offered an update on its drilling program at the Fernland deposit, where it identified three new mineralized zones striking more than one kilometer
(,) Inc has revealed new drill results and positive news from its ongoing drill program on the Larder gold project which it says adds “significant value” to its upcoming mineral resource estimate.
Drilling in progress at the Bear deposit returned 7.7 grams per tonne (g / t) of gold over 17 meters (m), including 25.3 g / t gold over 4 m upstream of the core of the deposit and connecting it to near-surface lenses identified in Gatling’s 2019 schedule, according to the company.
Nathan Tribble, Gatling’s vice president of exploration, called the results “very significant” as they link the high-grade core of the deposit to the lenses.

“It is expected that these latter holes will add a large amount of volume and ounces to our next resource update, as the gap before these drill holes was 300 meters in direction and 150 meters vertically,” Tribble said in a statement.
The company also provided an update on its drilling program at the Fernland deposit, where it completed a 13,500m program. According to Gatling, of Vancouver, the program succeeded in identifying three new mineralized zones striking one kilometer from surface to about 250 m, with gold intersections such as 1.5 g / t gold out of 200, 7 m, including 6.1 g / t gold over 23.7 m.
The results will feed into Fernland’s next resource estimate, scheduled for Q3 2021.
âThe 25,000 meter exploration program presented at the start of the year is almost 90% complete and has continued to deliver impressive results in the Fernland and now Bear deposits, which bodes well for the next estimate. of the mineral resources of the Larder project, “Gatling CEO said. Jason Billan said.
âOne of the main goals of our program this year was to bridge the gap between two main lenses at Bear, which begin about 100 meters below the surface, and the core of the Bear deposit, which begins at about 500 meters below the surface. We have now accomplished this important achievement on time. “
The Gatling Larder flagship project is located in the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt in northern Ontario.
