GALANTAS REPORTS STRATEGY FOCUS ON MINING AND EXPLORATION

 

DATE: 14th September 2011

 

Galantas Gold Corporation (the Company), a gold producer and explorer in Northern Ireland, reports today that it will examine joint venture opportunities related to its premium Irish gold jewellery business. The change of strategy permits management to focus on development of the Company as a precious metal producer and explorer, whilst retaining value from past investment in its fine jewellery business.

 

The Company is engaged in an aggressive exploration program, with 15,000 metres of drilling concentrated on known veins near the existing mine. Galantas holds exploration rights to 435 square kilometres of Northern Ireland and operates an open-pit gold mine at its Omagh, County Tyrone property. An Environmental Impact Assessment related to a planning application for underground mining is underway.

 

This disclosure has been reviewed by Roland Phelps, C.Eng MIMM, (President & CEO Galantas Gold Corporation), a qualified person under the meaning of N.I 43-101.
