GT Gold Corp. [GTT-TSXV] has  reported multiple intercepts of high-grade gold+/-silver have been returned from six of the first eight core holes ever drilled into the new Saddle South gold discovery, including a very high-grade intercept of 51.53 g/t gold (1.5 oz/ton) and 117.38 g/t silver over 6.95 metres (22.80 feet) (TTD007), and the first visible gold has been observed in core at 109 metres in TTD031 – assays pending, photos of gold from both holes available on website.

The Saddle South gold discovery is on the company’s flagship 31,309-hectare Tatogga property located west of the village of Iskut accessible from paved Highway 37 in the Golden Triangle region of northwestern British Columbia.

In addition to the 8 core holes reported in this news release, a further 28 core holes have been completed or are presently underway.

“These first-ever Saddle South core results reveal a high-grade epithermal vein system bearing the key hallmarks – high grades, widths, and continuity – required to advance the project,” said Kevin Keough, President & CEO. “Saddle South appears to be evolving in the direction of robust, high-grade underground potential, with expansion drilling continuing to deliver a steady flow of fresh intercepts, now to 320 metres down-dip, and we’re rapidly pushing out, and deeper. It’s commonly the case, as in TTD004 and TTD005, that we achieve multiple high-grade intercepts in each hole, often encompassed by broader mineralized envelopes. Cumulatively, these multiple intra-hole intercepts really add-up. We’re generally rewarded with great visuals and have been encouraged by our ability to consistently drill three and even four holes per pad, each below the previous, and to walk it deeper. Step-outs along strike have been successful, with a bias toward the west, and our first three deep step-backs have also hit. In a couple of very steep holes, TTD003 and TTD006, we appear to have drilled down or sub-parallel to dykes sharing – as is so often the case in structurally-focused gold systems such as Saddle – the structural volume with the mineralization, but we can successfully avoid this by stepping back and coming at the target with lower angle holes.

In general, we’ve experienced rapid discovery expansion and gained confidence we can follow the mineralization with the drills down and laterally. The field crew, led by VP Exploration Charlie Greig, has been doing an outstanding job, and our results to date are a testament to their diligence and hard work. Our focus will continue to be on expansion, and painting the largest possible picture before season’s end. We intend to drill the Saddle discovery as long as the weather allows, and look forward to delivering more good news.”
