- Greatland Gold said the first drilling campaign at the Havieron licence, part of its Paterson project in Western Australia state, would commence in April.

The campaign included up to four vertical core holes for a total of around 2,400 metres to determine the type of mineralisation and to evaluate grades of gold, copper and other elements.

'Over the past few months, the Paterson region has seen a substantial number of new exploration licence applications by several industry participants,' chief executive Gervaise Heddle said.

'Greatland's early entry advantage makes us well positioned to capitalise on the region's potential. We look forward to announcing the results of our drilling campaign in due course.'
