Gatling to Commence AI Target Generation at Larder Gold Project, Ontario
Vancouver, British Columbia, July 30, 2020 – GATLING EXPLORATION INC. (TSXV: GTR, OTCQX: GATGF) (the “Company” or “Gatling) is pleased to announce it has engaged artificial intelligence (AI) experts, Windfall Geotek, to use its advanced Computer Aided Resource Detection System (CARDS) to identify probable gold targets at the Larder Gold project. The AI targets will be evaluated and explored using traditional exploration techniques in upcoming programs.
Highlights of CARDS Analysis on Larder Gold Project
- Large, Prospective Project Area. Gatling’s Larder Gold project occupies 3,370 hectares along the Cadillac Larder Lake Break, a prolific structural gold trend. The property hosts three high-grade deposits along the main break, as well as two additional, underexplored gold trends, recently discovered 6 km north.
- Robust Database for AI Analysis. AI uses pattern recognition and machine learning to make predictions based off compiled datasets. The Larder project benefits from a vast database of recent and historical data, including: >2,000 drill holes, >90,000 assays, >1,000 surface rock samples, >500 soil samples, as well as geophysics, Lidar and bedrock geology.
- Multiple Localized Deposits Provide Important Guidance for AI. The area to be analyzed has numerous deposits including, but not limited to, Agnico Eagle’s Upper Beaver, Kerr Addison, Mistango River Resources’ Omega Mine and Gatling’s 3 high-grade gold deposits: Fernland, Cheminis and Bear. These known gold deposits will be instrumental in guiding the AI, with the goal of highlighting areas on Larder that may be geologically similar to other deposits in the district.
