Vancouver, B.C. – TheNewswireFebruary 10, 2022: Gitennes Exploration Inc. (“Gitennes” or the “Company”) – (TSXV:GIT) announces that sampling on its 100% owned VG Boulder Property during a reconnaissance programme in late 2021 returned values up 75.7 g/t gold.  Anomalous analyses were obtained from 10 of 13 samples with values ranging from 0.186 to 75.7 g/t gold,   including 8.54, 3.83 and 1.55 g/t gold.  The samples were taken from angular rubble in a creek bed over a length of 165 metres and the high grade samples appear to be sub-crop or close to being in-situ (Figure 3).  In addition, three samples taken from an outcrop about 3.6 km northeast of the high grade sample analyzed 1.54, 0.952 and 0.387 g/t gold (Figure 3).

The VG Boulder property has seen little past work and the showings are undrilled.  Gitennes plans to return to VG Boulder as soon as weather permits in the spring for a mapping and prospecting campaign.

Property Highlights

  • Gitennes finds visible gold in boulders in two locations on the Property; Analyses as high as 75.7 g/t gold (Figures 1 and 2); 

  • Historical gold showing located (22.4 g/t) and antimony (15.4%) in outcrop 3.6 km northeast of Boulder Showing, new showing in outcrop identified. (Figure 3); 

  • Geology is comparable to that of Gander, Newfoundland where significant gold mineralization has been identified.(Figure 4); 

  • 5,787 hectare property covers favourable geology and key regional structures.

The VG Boulder Property is located in the Gaspe Region of Quebec (Figure 5) and covers geology and structure that is similar to recent gold discoveries in Newfoundland.  The gold mineralization in the region is traditionally hosted by structures related to the Grand Pabos Fault, a major regional structure that can be traced across the entire Gaspe Peninsula and into Newfoundland where major gold discoveries have been made recently (Figure 4).  

Regional Context and Discussion

Recent research has revealed that gold mineralization is related to the Ordovician to Silurian-aged closing of the Iapetus Ocean.  This ancient suture in the earth’s crust extends from North America, through the Gaspe Peninsula, Newfoundland, across the Atlantic Ocean to Ireland (Figure 4).  Major gold deposits are associated with this event in Newfoundland and Ireland and structure is found to be a key aspect of these deposits and the critical control of gold mineralization including gold mineralization in the Gaspe Region of Quebec
