An exploration option over the brownfield project 60 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie was obtained by the company in an agreement with Zebina Minerals at the end of August.
The initial program will consist of around 2,000 metres of RC drilling on advanced prospects at Seven Leaders, Lady Betty and Whiteheads Find.
“It’s good to have the rig turning at Whiteheads” said Great Boulder’s managing director Andrew Paterson.
“We have a lot of field activity planned over the next few months to unlock the potential of this area.
“It’s an exciting project and I’m looking forward to receiving the assay results from this drilling.”

The RC program is expected to take two weeks with assay results expected within three to four weeks of the completion of drilling.
GBR is planning further work on the Eastern Goldfields project, including:
- Structural mapping on the Whiteheads corridor;
- High-resolution dronemag (aerial magnetic geophysical) surveys over Seven Leaders and over the Lady Betty to Whiteheads Find area; and
- Soil sampling at Painkiller.
Historical soil geochemistry on the Arsenal trend is also being reviewed with the intention of prioritising further auger sampling and/or aircore drilling.

With a focus on base metals and gold, the company has a range of projects from greenfields through to advanced exploration.
