Burlington, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 9, 2018) - GTA Resources and Mining Inc. (TSXV: GTA) ("GTA") is pleased to announce the initiation of an approximately 1,000 meter drill program at its Northshore Gold project, located in the Hemlo-Schreiber Gold Belt.
Several of GTA's prior drill holes terminated in mineralization at depth. The deepest hole to date (WB-12-33) undercut the central part of the Afric Zone with results including 1.37 g/t Au over 68.0 m. This intersection was 350 m below surface and two of the proposed holes in this new program are targeted to intersect the Afric Zone along strike and at a similar elevation to the WB-12-33 intersection.
Pursuant to the previously announced loan of $425,000 from an arm's length lender (see GTA's press release of October 30, 2018), GTA will have the capital required to complete the program in calendar 2018 and thereby to honour its 2018 'flowthrough' obligations.
Wayne Reid, P. Geo., is a Director of and VP Exploration for GTA and is a Qualified Person as defined in National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Reid has extensive experience in the exploration for gold and base metals in the Hemlo-Schreiber Greenstone Belt, and has reviewed and approved this release.
