- Greatland Gold successfully identified two large zones of gold mineralisation at its Ernest Giles project in Western Australia.

An ambitious drilling campaign at Ernest Giles identified two large zones of mineralisation, a Western Zone of 6km in length and 1.5km in width, and an Eastern zone of 2km by 1.5km.

The majority of the RC holes drilled intersected mineralisation including several that intersected wide zones (up to 60 metres) of anomalous gold mineralisation.

The cover sequence was not as thick as expected with the shallowest intercept at 119m, which suggested that Ernest Giles represents a large, relatively near surface gold exploration target.

Greatland Gold's field operations took one metre re-samples of several holes (these results were based on initial 4m composite samples).

The company said the results of the one metre re-samples are expected within the next four weeks.
