Junior explorer Greatland Gold plc (LON:GGP) is to kick off a new exploration campaign at its Ernest Giles gold project in Western Australia.

“We are very pleased to be moving forward with a new exploration programme at the Ernest Giles project,” said chief executive Gervaise Heddle.

“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.”

At the Meadows area, 24 holes are planned to be drilled to test a 5km x 1.5km anomaly previously identified by so far untested by Greatland drilling.

Greatland shares were down 3.3% to 0.66p in mid-morning trade.
