Greatland wants to drill two holes

Greatland Gold PLC (LON:GGP) is readying to drill two nickel sulphide targets identified by downhole electromagnetics at its Bromus project in Western Australia.

An application has been lodged with the Western Australian mining department, with the programme to target several highly conductive targets not intersected by a drilling campaign last year.

Two of these targets are relatively shallow, well constrained by modelling and are located close to drill holes BRD001 and BRD003 so the drills will utilise existing drill pads. 

Gervaise Heddle, chief executive , said the two targets are particularly appealing because they are well defined, relatively shallow (approximately 100 metres below the surface) and can be drilled using existing drill pads.

 “Approvals are expected within the next four weeks and we expect drilling to commence in late March 2017. "
