Gatling Exploration Inc (CVE:GTR) (OTCMKTS:GATGF) said initial drilling has hit high-grade, near surface gold at Fernland at its Larder project, underlining the firm's theory that the deposits there are connected by mineralization. 

Fernland is one of three deposits at the Larder project in Ontario. The other two are Bear and Cheminis. 

Drilling encountered a combination of high-grade and widespread gold mineralization within 50 meters from surface and a highlight assay was 11.9 grams per ton (g/t) gold over 4 meters (m), Gatling said.

"These results confirm mineralization 2 kilometers west of the Cheminis deposit and further extend the 4.5 kilometre mineralized footprint at Larder," it added.

"We are very pleased with the initial drill results from Fernland – one of three high-grade gold deposits at our Larder project," said Nav Dhaliwal, CEO at Gatling.

"The location of these successful drill holes is a strong indicator of continuity between the Fernland and Cheminis zones and allows us to aggressively target the remaining gap between these zones."

The Fernland intercepts align with known mineralized zones at Cheminis, indicating potential continuity, the group added.

Future drilling will concentrate on stepping out along trend in order to fill in 400 m distance between zones, said Gatling.

More than 20,000 m have so far been drilled at Fernland, none of which are included in the historic resource estimates at the Larder Gold project.
