Greatland Gold said it had commenced the first drilling campaign at its Black Hills gold project in the Paterson region of Western Australia state.

The drill programme included around 20 drill holes to depths of up to 300m for approximately 6,000m of drilling.

'We are excited to have commenced Greatland's first drilling campaign at Black Hills,' chief executive Gervaise Heddle said.

'Following encouraging field and geophysical work, the team believes that Black Hills, which sits adjacent to our Havieron licence and has displayed potential for near-surface gold mineralisation, could become Greatland's second significant project in the highly prospective Paterson region.'

'It is therefore a high priority target for the company and we look forward to updating shareholders on our progress.'
