GT GOLD STARTS 2018 DRILLING AT HIGH-GRADE SADDLE DISCOVERY
Two drills are now working at the high-grade Saddle gold-silver discovery, located on GT Gold Corp.’s 100-per-cent-owned Tatogga property in northwest British Columbia. The 2018 drill program will encompass a minimum of 18,000 metres of diamond drilling in an estimated 56 holes, with potential for program expansion and drilling to mid-November.
Drilling is focused on expanding the high-grade near-surface gold-silver zone defined last summer. Results from 2017 included 51.53 grams per tonne gold over 6.95 metres (TTD007), 14.75 g/t Au over 12.15 m (TTD019), 20.02 g/t Au over 8.25 m (TTD046), and 31.79 g/t Au and 1,141.10 g/t silver over 3.01 m (TTD058). Holes will test possible extensions in all directions outward from the core area outlined in 2017.
Additional geophysics (induced polarization) are under way at the exciting new copper-gold-silver porphyry discovery at Saddle North, drilled near the close of the 2017 season. Initial drill results suggest strong similarities to the nearby Red Chris deposit. Current geophysics are looking deeper, in more detail, and also along trend, providing an enhanced understanding of the geometry and apparent scale of the intrusive-related mineralizing system to depth. Once all the geophysical data are acquired, modelled and interpreted, drill targets will be prioritized, including deepening of discovery hole TTD062, which was mineralized to the end of hole and bottomed in its best grades. Drilling on these targets should commence by the end of July.
