Antler Gold has completed the first phase core drilling program at the Wilding Lake Gold Project in central Newfoundland. Results include gold intercepts of 10.01 grams per tonne over 5.35 metres.

Antler has completed a first phase drilling program that consisted of 30 core drill holes with a total meterage of 2,599 m. The drilling targeted the Elm, Alder, Taz and Raven zones which all consist of mineralized quartz vein systems hosted within sheared Rogerson Lake conglomerate. The highlight of the summer 2017 exploration season was the discovery of gold within the felsic volcanic rocks immediately to the south of the conglomerate/felsic volcanic contact, and in particular within a series of brittlely-fractured linear feldspar porphyry units (2 drill holes at the Red Ochre Complex) that trend across the entire length of the property. This significantly increases the potential to discover new gold occurrences with additional drill programs on the Project.
