Their support is indicative of the significant progress Greatland has made over the last 12 months and our strategic position in the highly prospective Paterson region, where we believe there are multiple potential tier-one opportunities present.
“Our 2019 exploration programme has presented some exciting results to date, which led to the decision to ramp up our exploration activities, particularly in the Paterson region. The funds raised will initially be used to advance our Scallywag target and several high-priority targets recently identified at our Paterson Range East licence. With the advancement of our exploration programme, alongside the excellent first drill results from Newcrest at Havieron, Greatland is moving forward apace on multiple fronts and we look forward to providing further updates on our progress.”
