The plan is to drill three high priority targets at the Meadows, Wishbone and Empress areas, although before that, mobile metal ion (MMI) surveys will be carried out.
“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.
Up to six holes will be drilled at Wishbone and Empress to test basement geology and physical rock properties.
Greatland said MMI sampling and drill preparation will start in the current quarter, with drilling commencing in the second quarter.
Greatland shares were down 3.3% to 0.66p in mid-morning trade.
