The two deposits lie along a 4.5-kilometre trend on the Ontario gold project.
Vancouver-based Gatling told investors that drilling on the property intercepted 1.5 grams per ton (g/t) gold over 36.8 metres, including 2 g/t gold over 14.8 metres.

Drilling at the Bear deposit confirmed gold mineralization in the North zone towards the Cheminis area, adding mineralization to the South Flow zone, the company said in a statement.
The results show that Bear and Cheminis are actually part of a larger mineralized trend that extends for at least 2.5 kilometres along strike.
"These results mark an important milestone for our drilling program,” Nathan Tribble, Gatling’s vice president exploration said in the statement.
“Gatling has long believed that the Larder gold project hosts a single mineralized system far larger than previously understood. We have now connected two of the three deposits on the project and will continue our approach of aggressive step out holes with the aim of connecting the third deposit on the 4.5 kilometre trend."
Further drilling at Larder will continue to focus west of the Cadillac-Larder Break towards Cheminis and explore previously untested areas along strike of known mineralization, the company told shareholders.
Larder is a 3,370-hectare project located in the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt in Northern Ontario, seven kilometres west of the former Kerr Addison mine.
The property hosts three high-grade gold deposits along the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break, 35 kilometers east of Kirkland Lake.
