Gitennes Commences Diamond Drilling at its Snowbird High Grade Gold Project

Vancouver, B.C. / TheNewswire / July 11, 2018 - Gitennes Exploration Inc. ("Gitennes" or the "Company") - (TSXV - GIT) announces it has commenced diamond drilling of its Snowbird High Grade Gold Project located near Fort St. James, British Columbia. The current programme, the Company's second phase of diamond drilling at Snowbird is a minimum of 1,500 metres and is part of a multi-year permit for drilling from up to 40 sites with some of the sites designated for more than one diamond drill hole.

The drill sites selected have the objective of extending the high grade gold mineralization identified in the 1980's along strike as well as confirming continuity down dip of projected strike extent mineralization. The strike length of the known gold mineralization is approximately 2.3 km. The down dip extension has not yet been ascertained; however, it is known to be at least 250 metres based on previous operators drilling.

Drilling in this stage will be to relatively shallow depths, generally between 90 and 150 metres below surface. This will enable the Company to continue to maximize coverage while minimizing expenditures.

In Gitennes' 2017 programme it was able to confirm the high grade gold intersections of previous operators with multi-gram "hits" in seven out of ten holes, such as:

  • Hole SB17-04 - 16.20 g/t gold over 1.0 metre
  • Hole SB17-02 - 9.73 g/t gold over 0.8 metres
  • Hole SB17-08 - 8.24 g/t gold over 0.52 metres

High-grade gold occurs within and adjacent to the 25 to 150 metre wide silica-carbonate altered ultramafic unit in areas of high deformation (faulting/shearing) and is associated with key pathfinder elements arsenic and antimony. Gold in quartz veins is hosted in the footwall and in the hanging wall of the ultramafic unit in close proximity to a thick mudstone unit.
