Global Mining Review,

Further to the announcements of 7 May 2019 and 30 May 2019, Greatland Gold plc – the precious and base metals exploration and development company – has commenced its first drilling campaign at Greatland’s 100%-owned Black Hills gold project in the Paterson region of Western Australia.

The drill programme includes approximately 20 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes to depths of up to 300 m for approximately 6000 m of drilling. The drill programme has been designed to test an induced polarisation (IP) chargeability anomaly, approximately 1400 m in length, which is spatially coincident with gold mineralisation identified at surface.

Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are excited to have commenced Greatland’s first drilling campaign at Black Hills. Following encouraging field and geophysical work, the team believes that Black Hills, which sits adjacent to our Havieron licence and has displayed potential for near-surface gold mineralisation, could become Greatland’s second significant project in the highly prospective Paterson region. It is therefore a high priority target for the company and we look forward to updating shareholders on our progress.”
