VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 16, 2017) - GT Gold Corp. ("GT Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GTT). With just a month to go, GT Gold is pleased to report that all permits are in place and all supplier contracts have been let in support of a June 15th start of camp construction at the Company's promising new Saddle gold target, located on the Tatogga property in northwestern British Columbia, Canada. Camp construction is expected to take several days, following which ground based induced polarization (IP) geophysics, additional geochemical sampling, and reverse circulation (RC) drilling (up to 2,000 metres in 76 holes), will get underway. The results of this work, which is targeted for completion in the first half of July, will be used to guide immediate follow-on diamond drilling (2,600 metres in 22 holes). A second phase of core drilling of similar meterage, to be undertaken in August and September, has been fully financed.
