Otis Completes Drilling at Kilgore

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Otis Gold Corp. (“Otis” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: OOO) (OTC: OGLDF) is pleased to announce the completion of drilling operations at its flagship Kilgore Project, Clark County, Idaho. The program comprised 11 reverse-circulation (“RC”) holes totaling 8,415 feet (2,565 metres) and was designed to step-off the current margins of the Kilgore Deposit as defined by the 0.1 g/t gold grade shell (see Kilgore 2019 Drill Plan Map).  All samples have been delivered to ALS Geochemistry in Elko, Nevada and assay results will be released when available.

The 2019 drill program was conducted by Alford Drilling of Butte, Montana and Major Drilling of Salt Lake City, Utah using Foremost 1500 and Schramm 450 reverse circulation drill rigs respectively. Drilling was carried out using downhole hammers with face sampling drill bits and continued with face sampling, deep hole tricone bits when the hammer bits “watered-out”. All holes were drilled without water injection.

All downhole surveys were conducted by Intermountain Drilling Supply of Elko, Nevada using a downhole, north seeking gyro survey tool. Final drill hole locations were taken using hand-held GPS and will be resurveyed by sub-meter GPS in the Spring. All holes were abandoned bottom-top and have been located using cement-rebar monuments.

Alan Roberts, MSc, CPG, Vice President of Exploration, serves as the Qualified Person for this news release and has reviewed and approved the technical content contained herein.
