Exploration will identify new driling targets

Greatland Gold PLC (LON:GGP) has started gravity and passive seismic survey work at the Ernest Giles gold project in Western Australia.

The aim is to whittle down multiple high priority gold targets across the 1,000 square kilometre project area ahead of further drilling. Greatland expects the survey will take four weeks to complete. 

Gervaise Heddle, chief executive, added that the first area of fieldwork will be the Meadows target where previous drilling identified two large zones of gold mineralisation

“Once the work at the Meadows target has been completed, we expect the survey teams to move on to other high priority targets including the Empress target in the north-eastern portion of the Ernest Giles greenstone belt.

“Gravity and passive seismic surveys are an integral part of large scale exploration efforts for gold mineralisation and are relatively inexpensive when compared to full-scale drilling campaigns.” 

Ernest Giles in central Western Australia, covers an area of more than 1,000 sq km with over 120km of strike of gold and nickel prospective rocks.
