Gatling Exploration Inc reported new high-grade results from its largest step-out drill hole to date at the Bear deposit, including 10.6 gram per tonne Au over 5.0 meters. This step-out hole expands the high-grade mineralization at the Bear deposit 200 meters west towards the Cheminis deposit. As a result, the North Zone at the Bear deposit has now reached 600 meters along strike. Mr Nathan Tribble, VP Exploration for Gatling, said that hitting such strong grades with our biggest step out to date is extremely encouraging. The successful results also represent the start of a new phase of step out drilling, designed to test the theory that our three deposits - Fernland, Cheminis and Bear are all connected as one, very large mineralized system.

1. Largest Step Out to Date. GTR-19-009 extended the North zone 200 meters west with multiple occurrences of visible gold returning values of 10.6 gram per tonne Au over 5.0 meters.

2. Step Out Drilling Campaign. Drilling at the Bear deposit has now entered a new expansion phase and will continue to strategically step-out west along the Cadillac-Larder Break towards Cheminis. Gatling believes that the Fernland, Cheminis and Bear deposits are part of one continuous system. This phase of exploration will continue to explore previously untested areas along strike of known mineralization.

3. Bear Deposit Resource. The 2011 inferred resource completed on the Bear deposit is 683,600 Au oz at 5.69 gram per tonne Au. There are three main zones that comprise the total resource. Gatling has over 30,000 meters of completed drilling that has not been included in this resource and will be utilized in future models.

4, Bear Deposit Extension. The Bear deposit is made up of three main mineralized zones with current dimensions outlined to 600 meters in strike and over 850 meters at depth. With strong continuity throughout all 3 zones, Gatling will continue to test the extension of mineralization as drilling continues.
