Dissemination of a Regulatory Announcement that contains inside information according to REGULATION (EU) No 596/2014 (MAR).

("Greatland" or "the Company")

 

Newcrest Commences Drilling at Havieron

 

Further to the announcement of 30 April 2019, Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), the precious and base metals exploration and development company, is pleased to announce that Newcrest Operations Limited ("Newcrest") has commenced drilling at Greatland's Havieron gold-copper project in the Paterson region of Western Australia.

 

The initial drill programme comprises approximately 10,000 metres of drilling with the aim to define the extent of the mineralisation along strike and at depth, testing the system to a depth of 1,000 metres below surface. All drilling is being carried out at Newcrest's expense and Greatland expects to continue to receive regular updates as the programme progresses.

 

Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer of Greatland Gold, commented: "It is an exciting moment for Greatland as Newcrest embarks on its first drill programme at our cornerstone Havieron gold-copper project. The initial 10,000-metre drill programme is the most extensive at Havieron to date and we anticipate that Newcrest's technical expertise and understanding of the local geology will build upon our highly successful 2018 programme. We look forward to keeping shareholders updated with drill results and all other material exploration information as it is received."

 

In March 2019, Greatland signed a Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest Operations Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM), to explore and develop Greatland's Havieron gold-copper project in the Paterson region of Western Australia. Newcrest has the right to acquire up to a 70% interest in a 12 block area within E45/4701 that covers the Havieron target (the "Havieron project") by spending up to US$65m.

Notes for Editors:

 

Greatland Gold plc is London listed (LON:GGP) natural resource exploration and development company with a current focus on gold, copper and nickel exploration projects.

 

The Company has six main projects; four situated in Western Australia and two in Tasmania. All projects are 100% owned by Greatland.

 

In March 2019, Greatland signed a Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest Operations Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM), to explore and develop Greatland's Havieron gold-copper project in the Paterson region of Western Australia. Newcrest has the right to acquire up to a 70% interest in a 12 block area within E45/4701 that covers the Havieron target by spending up to US$65m.

 

Greatland is seeking to identify large mineral deposits in areas that have not been subject to extensive exploration previously.  It is widely recognised that the next generation of large deposits will come from such under-explored areas and Greatland is applying advanced exploration techniques to investigate a number of carefully selected targets within its focused licence portfolio.

 

The Company is also actively investigating a range of new opportunities in precious and strategic metals and will update the market on new opportunities as and when appropriate.
