Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V & AIM: GAL; OTCQX: GALKF) (“Galantas” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the Gairloch Project in Scotland.

Galantas Gold, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh, is currently undertaking a sampling program of drill core and outcrop to establish the Kerry Road deposit’s geochemical signature which will be used to locate new mineralization in the Gairloch Schist Belt. The work will include petrology, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and electron microprobe (EMP) analysis on selected rock samples. This sampling work is expected to help identify new target areas for follow-up exploration work and drilling.

Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “We are honored to collaborate with the University of Edinburgh and look forward to the results of this detailed work. The team at the university’s School of Geosciences brings experience in cutting-edge research and expert knowledge of VMS systems to help us better understand the Kerry Road deposit and determine the location of other mineralized bodies in the vicinity.”

Overview of VMS deposits and work with the University of Edinburgh

The green energy transition will require significant amounts of metals such as copper, zinc and cobalt to enable the growth of clean technologies, electric vehicles and renewables. The Kerry Road copper-zinc-gold deposit at the Gairloch Project is classified as a Besshi-type VMS deposit, which is associated with cobalt enrichment. Additionally, its host rocks appear to be geologically similar to those in the Trans-Hudson Orogen in Manitoba and Saskatchewan which contain the prolific Flin Flon and Snow Lake VMS mining camps. This makes the Kerry Road deposit an important potential resource for the future.

VMS deposits are rarely solitary and typically exhibit multiple mineralized bodies in each system. These systems are formed through hydrothermal activity, which alters the surrounding rock and leaves a geochemical signature (or alteration halo) which can be detected through certain types of detailed analysis and observations. Each mineral deposit will have its own unique geochemical signature based on the composition of the local rock. This project with the University of Edinburgh aims to identify the Kerry Road’s unique signature using garnet, chlorite, white mica and other silicate minerals. The results will be compared to new and existing data from other metamorphosed VMS deposits of the Yilgarn Craton, Western Australia – for example, Teutonic Bore, Wheatley, King, and Nimbus. The work is supported by grants from the Geological Society of London and Geological Society of Glasgow to the University of Edinburgh PhD student Cendi Dana.

Representative footwall, ore horizon and hanging-wall samples from drill core and outcrops have been collected for petrography, mineral chemistry, and whole-rock geochemical analysis. Whole-rock geochemical analysis will be carried out using x-ray fluorescence and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry to establish geochemical trends and alteration halos. Mineralogy will be characterized by petrographic observations (transmitted and reflected light petrology, and scanning electron microscopy), coupled with mineral chemical analysis using an electron microprobe at the University of Edinburgh’s Materials and Micro-Analysis Centre. When coupled with whole-rock geochemical data, the EMP data will allow geologists to determine the factors involved in the changes of mineral chemistry. This project will further characterize the alteration mineralogy of the Kerry Road deposit, and aid exploration efforts toward additional discoveries in the regional stratigraphy.

Galantas Gold announces marketing contracts

The Company announces that it engaged GRIT Capital Corp (“Grit”) of Toronto, Ontario, to create print advertising campaigns, including in GRIT’s flagship newsletter, a landing page for advertising campaigns and CEO presentations on Twitter spaces, to provide the Company with exposure to potential investors, in accordance with Policy 3.4 – Investor Relations, Promotional and Market-Making Activities of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The activity undertaken by GRIT occurred in its newsletter at gritcap.io and on a partner’s Twitter account @WOLF_Financial. Grit was engaged in March 2023 for a period of 26 weeks, which arrangements are now complete at a fee of USD$65,000 (plus HST). The USD$65,000 was paid as to USD$5,000 in cash on entering into the agreement and USD$60,000 through the issuance of units. No buying or selling recommendations are made, no price projections on the Company are given and nor do they give any financial advice. The arrangements with Grit were and are an arm’s length relationship with the Company. Grit is operated by Genevieve Sarah Roch-Decter. Pursuant to the arrangements Grit subscribed for and were issued 228,333 common shares (the “Grit Shares”) and 228,333 share purchase warrants (the “Grit Warrants”) (collectively the “Grit Units”) of the Company under the private placement completed by the Company on March 27, 2023. The issuance of the Grit Units has been reviewed by the Exchange pursuant to policy 3.4 which states that compensation in the form of shares is not acceptable and payment should be in the form of cash. The Exchange has requested that the Grit Units be cancelled. Grit agreed that the Grit Warrants issued to them will be cancelled by the Company. Mr. Stifano, the CEO of the Company, has agreed to cancel 228,333 common shares of the Company (“Shares”) owned by him. As of the date hereof, to the Company’s knowledge, after the cancellation of the Shares held by Mr. Stifano and the Grit Warrants, GRIT (including its directors and officers) owns directly or indirectly 228,333 Shares of the Company and does not have any right or intent to acquire any additional Shares of the Company. The 228,333 Shares and 228,333 Grit Warrants were cancelled effectively February 27, 2024.

The Company also announces that it engaged ABR Media Company (“ABR”), of Langley, British Columbia, covering a sponsorship of the Rocks and Stocks News website, whereby ABR will provide certain video interview services to the Company in accordance with Policy 3.4 – Investor Relations, Promotional and Market-Making Activities of the Exchange. ABR has been engaged since March 2023 for a period of one year, for a total fee of C$36,000.
