Multiple drill holes from the ongoing 35,000 m program have established continuity over 2.5 km of strike length, the firm said

Gatling Exploration Inc (CVE:GTR) (OTCMKTS:GATGF) is ramping up exploration efforts at its flagship Larder gold project in Ontario, with the addition of a third rig to its 35,000-metre drill program. 

Gatling said the rig will focus on two important goals - locating potential extensions of high-grade mineralization near surface at the Fernland deposit and also testing the continuity of mineralization between Fernland and Cheminis to establish a 4.5 km strike length across all three deposits (Fernland, Cheminis and Bear) 

The 3,370-hectare asset lies in the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt and hosts three deposits, which Gatling believes are all connected.
