Greatland has also announced plans for its maiden drilling campaign at Black Hills which is expected to commence in early June.


Key Developments



  • High powered, deep sensing IP survey has commenced at Black Hills, seeking to extend the strike length of the chargeability anomaly identified by the IP survey conducted in 2018.
  • Data from the current IP programme, and from additional field mapping work which is currently underway, will be used to refine drill targeting for the upcoming campaign.
  • Campaign will include more than 20 reverse circulation drill holes to depths of up to 300m for approximately 6 000m of drilling.


Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The high powered, deep penetrating IP survey at Black Hills is designed to test whether the large, chargeability anomaly that was previously identified over 1 000m of strike, and which is spatially coincident with gold mineralisation identified at surface, continues further to the south-east. We intend to immediately follow up this survey by commencing Greatland’s first drilling campaign at Black Hills in early June.”
