GT Gold Corp. is focused on exploring for base and precious metals in the geologically fertile terrain of British Columbia’s renowned Golden Triangle. The Company’s flagship asset is the wholly-owned, 45,847-hectare Tatogga property, located near Iskut, BC, upon which it achieved in 2017 two major discoveries 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 and high-grade porphyry copper gold mineralized intrusion. The Company has the backing of major institutions and is currently in the process of planning its 2019 drilling campaign.

What is your rationale for attending 121 Mining Investment?

February 12, 2019: GT Gold Reports Final 2018 Drill Results; Continues to Extend Saddle South Au-Ag Mineralized System
What are your key goals for the next 3, 6 and 12 months?
Finalize 2019 exploration plan and initiate drilling program
Complete 2019 drilling program
Release all assay results and complete full geological compilation and data interpretation
What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
Biggest risk and challenge facing GT Gold and others in the exploration space is availability of capital. To date, GT Gold has overcome this hurdle by working to effectively market and communicate drill results and compiled data to generate enhanced interest in our project and sufficient funding to continue our drill program through the 2019 season.
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
GT Gold is a compelling investment with two recent and significant discoveries in a Canadian mining jurisdiction. The 2019 drilling program will be focused on Saddle North – a large scale and potentially world-class copper-gold porphyry system showing increased grades to depth, remaining wide open for expansion, and situated on a large prospective property of almost 447,000 km2.
