Greatland Gold has announced new exploration plans for its Ernest Giles project.
Highlights of the new exploration plans include:
- Drilling three high priority targets at Meadows, Wishbone and Empress areas;
- Prior to the commencement of drilling, Mobile Metal Ion (“MMI”) surveys will be completed at the Meadows, Wishbone and Empress areas;
- Drill programme at the Meadows area will consist of approximately twenty-four RC drill holes to test the 5km x 1.5km anomaly defined by Deep Sensing Geochemistry (“DSG”) work which remains untested by previous Greatland drilling;
- Up to six RC holes to be completed at the Wishbone and Empress areas to test basement geology and physical rock properties;
- Drilling preparation activities and MMI sampling at Ernest Giles will commence in Q1 2018 with drilling commencement expected in Q2 2018;
- All required Programme of Work applications for drilling have been lodged with the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.
Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are very pleased to be moving forward with a new exploration programme at the Ernest Giles project. This new programme follows the successful results from previous exploration conducted at the project, which strengthened our belief that Ernest Giles has the potential to host several multi-million-ounce gold deposits. We look forward to providing a further update once all approvals have been received.
“The Company expects to make further announcements regarding exploration plans at its other key projects over the next couple of months.”
