Outstanding Gold Drill Intercepts Reported by Antipa Minerals in Paterson Region

Outstanding Gold Drill Intercepts Reported by Antipa Minerals in Paterson Region

Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), the precious and base metals exploration and development

company, notes that Antipa Minerals (ASX:AZY) has reported positive high-grade gold results

from its drilling campaign at its Minyari Dome Project, approximately 35 kilometres along

strike from Greatland’s Havieron project.

Highlights from Antipa Minerals announcement:

 Antipa Minerals has today reported high grade gold results at its Minyari Dome

WACA deposit located in the Paterson region of Western Australia, including 42.0m

at 7.8g/t gold from 262m downhole (incl 13.0m at 22.1g/t gold and 1m at 222.0g/t

gold), and 28.0m at 3.6 g/t gold from 13m downhole (incl 12.0m at 7.2g/t gold);

 Antipa’s drill results represent some of the most outstanding gold drill intersections

reported in the Paterson region in recent times and, we believe, highlight the vast

exploration potential of the Paterson region;and

 Antipa’s Minyari Dome Project is located approximately 35 kilometres north west of

Greatland’s Havieron project and is approximately 30 kilometres west of Greatland’s

Paterson Range East project.

Greatland recently more than doubled its potential landholding in the Paterson region and

now holds a potentially significant strategic position of over 360 square kilometres in a

region that is seeing increasing interest from major mining companies. Greatland’s Havieron

project is located approximately 40 kilometres east of Newcrest’s Telfer gold mine which has

produced over 27 million ounces of gold to date. Limited historical exploration by Newcrest

in the late 1990s demonstrated high grade gold and copper mineralisation at Havieron with

peak values of 15g/t Au and 2.5% Cu.

Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The outstanding results reported

today by Anitpa Minerals highlight the potential of this exciting gold/copper district. We

believe that this announcement may significantly accelerate regional exploration efforts by

the mining companies in the region, including Newcrest, Rio Tinto and Antipa.”
