- Great Western Mining said it had encountered significant gold from testing of a sixth well drilled at the M4 copper project in Australia.

Gold intersects were identified from surface to 4.27 meters of depth with 0.137 parts per million of gold, in tandem with elevated copper readings of up to 484 parts per million.

'In preparation for the recommencement of drilling Great Western Mining has planned an aggressive Spring field campaign of geological mapping and sampling commencing at the beginning of April,' chief executive Great Western Mining said.

'In the summer a drill programme on M4 will follow up on the successful results of 2018, while at M2 the spring campaign will finalise the best route to return to test the Sharktooth target.'
