GT Gold Corp. (GTT:TSX-V) is focused on exploring for base and precious metals in British Columbia’s prolific Golden Triangle. The Company’s flagship asset is the wholly-owned, 46,827 hectare Tatogga property, located near Iskut, BC, where it achieved two significant discoveries in 2017 and 2018 at its Saddle prospect: a near surface bulk-tonnage and potential deep high-grade underground-style epithermal gold-silver vein system at Saddle South and, close by at Saddle North, a large-scale, richly mineralized porphyry gold-copper-silver intrusion. GT Gold is currently infill and exploration drilling at Saddle North, with ongoing results being released as they are compiled through early 2020.

What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
A key risk to any project in the northern British Columbia Golden Triangle is the short exploration season, running from June to October. GT Gold has overcome this issue in 2019 by mobilizing a third drill at Saddle North to ensure the Company is able to complete the 25,000 planned metres before the end of October.
