Greatland Commences Field Activities at Firetower
Wednesday, June 12th, 2019
Further to the announcement of 16 April 2019, Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), the precious and base metals exploration and development company, is pleased to announce that field activities in preparation for drilling have commenced at Greatland’s Firetower gold project in Tasmania.
The drill programme comprises approximately 15 drill holes on five north-south traverses, with drill hole depths ranging from 75 metres up to 250 metres, for a total of more than 2,000 metres. Systematic, grid-based drilling will test the centre of the chargeability anomaly at Firetower and additional holes will test a previously undrilled area at Firetower East where new targets were identified by last year’s 3D Induced Polarisation (“3DIP”) survey. All required regulatory approvals have been received and drilling is expected to commence at Firetower in one week.
Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are very pleased to have commenced field activities ahead of a drill programme that could begin to unlock the true potential of this project. The current programme is designed to test sections of the large chargeability anomaly, approximately 1,000 metres long, that was identified by the results of last year’s 3DIP survey. Importantly, the results of that earlier survey illustrated that the existing sub-surface gold mineralisation identified by previous drilling at Firetower is spatially associated with the 3DIP anomaly.”https://greatlandgold.com/
