It is the first drill programme at Black Hills and it will comprise a total of 20 holes. The Company expects to drill around 6,000 metres.
The aim is to test an anomaly that has been estimated to be around 1,400 metres in length, which is spatially coincident with gold mineralisation seen at surface.
"We are excited to have commenced Greatland's first drilling campaign at Black Hills,” said Gervaise Heddle, Greatland chief executive.
“Following encouraging field and geophysical work, the team believes that Black Hills, which sits adjacent to our Havieron licence and has displayed potential for near-surface gold mineralisation, could become Greatland's second significant project in the highly prospective Paterson region.
“It is therefore a high priority target for the Company and we look forward to updating shareholders on our progress," he added.
In afternoon trading, shares in Greatland Gold were 6.9% higher at 1.85p.
