Diamond Drill mobilized to Snowbird High Grade Gold Project

Vancouver, British Columbia – October 10, 2019 – Gitennes Exploration Inc. (“Gitennes” or the “Company”) has mobilized a diamond drill to its Snowbird High Grade Gold Project for the start of its Phase III diamond drilling programme initially planned for 2,000 metres focussed on the Main Zone.

Main Zone Highlights – Snowbird Gold Project
The Main Zone has consistently delivered high grade results either through historical adit and trench sampling; diamond drilling in the early and late-1980’s or by Gitennes’ two diamond drilling programmes (see tables below).

Based on Gitennes’ work and a review of historical information, high-grade gold occurs within and adjacent to the 25 to 150 metre wide silica-carbonate altered ultramafic unit in areas of high deformation (faulting/shearing) and is associated with key pathfinder elements arsenic and antimony. Gold in quartz veins is predominantly hosted within 10 metres of the footwall contact between the overlying mudstone altered ultramafic.

Gitennes’ review of historic drilling in combination with contemporary drilling from the Phase I and II programme suggests that the down dip extension of the Main Zone mineralization may steepen at depth. Phase III drilling will test the Main Zone at depth as almost all historical drilling has been to an average vertical depth of only about 75 metres.

The Company also announces that it has received TSX Venture approval to settle a payable with a diamond drill contractor. Gitennes and the drill contractor agreed to settle $38,418 by Gitennes issuing 768,376 common shares at $0.05 per common share. Additionally, the Company has amended its option agreement on the Snowbird Project such that the deadline for Gitennes to incur cumulative expenditures by September 30 has been extended to December 31, 2019.
