Galantas Confirms Continuity of Kearney and Elkin Veins

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 14, 2007) - Galantas Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GAL)(AIM:GAL) (the Company), which has a 100% interest in Ireland's only gold mine, today announced results from ongoing core drilling. To date 36 holes have been completed in the current program, with total drilling of 3,518 meters.

Drill holes OM-DD-07-17 and OM-DD-07-18, located in the central portion of the 850 metres long Kearney Vein, intersected mineralization at depths of approximately 90 and 95 metres respectively. Hole 17 had numerous gold bearing intervals from 119 to 154 metres down hole, including a 0.31 metres intersection assaying 14.12 grams per tonne gold. Hole 17 was drilled in the same vertical section as holes 15 and 16 reported on May 1(st), 2007. Hole 18 also had multiple gold bearing intercepts from 86 meters to 125 meters down hole.

Holes 21 and 23 are part of a six hole program that has been completed at the Elkin Zone following six holes drilled in 2006. The Elkins Zone is a multi-vein system discovered by Rio Tinto in the 1980's by drilling coincident soil and Induced Polarization anomalies. Holes 21 and 23 are infill holes at 25-metre spacing. Hole 20 overshot the target and will be re-drilled. Holes 25, 27 and 29 testing on-strike and down-dip extensions are being sampled.
