Galantas Gold Announces Engagement of QME for Underground Development Towards Joshua Vein at Omagh Project

TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V & AIM: GAL; OTCQX: GALKF) (“Galantas” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Flintridge Resources Limited has appointed QME Limited of Navan, Ireland, as a mining contractor to develop the access and exploration drives to the Joshua Vein at its Omagh Gold Project in Northern Ireland.

QME’s project scope comprises a total of 600 metres of underground development and is expected to commence in January 2023. Development to an exploration drive is expected to be completed by May 2023, followed by access drives to two mining levels at the Joshua Vein in Q3 2023.

Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “This project is very exciting on two major fronts – to allow early detailed exploration drilling at depth on the Joshua Vein and simultaneously increase production capability from the Joshua Vein to supplement production from the Kearney Vein. This will greatly assist in fully defining resources at the Joshua Vein while bringing the Omagh Mine to a stable level of production. With intercepts such as 17.4 grams per tonne gold and 74.6 grams per tonne silver over a 13.1-metre intersect, we look forward to continued drilling success along the new exploration drive at Joshua.”
