Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX-V & AIM: GAL; OTCQX: GALKF) (“Galantas” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the successful completion of its trial stoping program at the Cavanacaw Gold Mine at the Omagh Project in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

Mario Stifano, CEO of Galantas, commented: “The trial has brought a high level of understanding to the mine development process and helped us conclude that the Cavanacaw Mine can be mined successfully, utilizing a longhole mining method and backfill. The trial stoping has provided sufficient information to bring a high level of confidence for a successful stoping program in the future.”

Provisional revenues generated from concentrate sales totalled approximately US$1,103,000 in 2023 and approximately US$207,000 in Q1 2024. The net proceeds from concentrate sales are being offset against development assets, until the mine commences commercial production.

Six stopes were successfully mined and backfilled using a narrow vein, modified Avoca longhole open stoping method, in two separate blocks. The minimum stope width was 2.2 metres planned with a stope length of 10 to 15 metres. Vertical distance between the stoping levels was approximately 8 metres from roof to floor. Following the success of the trial, the Company plans to increase the distance between levels to 12 metres. Relatively low-grade areas of the mine were selected for the trial to assess the suitability of the mining method and also to serve as a training project for the locally trained mining operators.

A total of 3,175 tonnes of mineralized material was successfully mined from the six stopes during this phase in a safe and controlled manner. Reconciliation was completed for two of the stopes, and grades returned an average percentage increase of 113%* from the grade modelled in the technical report “Resource Estimate, Preliminary Economic Assessment & Detailed Feasibility Study on the Omagh Gold Project, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland" dated July 26, 2014 and filed on September 4, 2014.

Trials have led to an optimized cycle of two days from the initial stope blast to completion of backfill, thus reducing the potential for dilution and also streamlining the process. This mining method can now be applied to more than 240 stopes which are already planned for the Kearney and Joshua zones, with grades in the range of 2.0 grams per tonne (g/t) gold to 17 g/t.

*Higher grade reconciliation may not be indicative of future grade reconciliations.
