At the start of December, Greatland Gold revealed that drilling at its Havieron licence in Western Australia has yielded “significant visible mineralisation”.
It said that results for the first hole (HAD005) of the drill programme returned a combined 275 metre (m) intercept at 4.77 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 0.61% copper.
That included an upper zone of 118m at 3.08g/t gold and 0.84% copper from 459m and a lower zone of 157m at 6.04g/t gold and 0.44% copper from 660m.
Alastair Clayton, Primorus’s executive director commented today: "We have added to our position in advance of the further assay results for the drill holes HAD006 through to HAD009. We hope these results will confirm Havieron Gold/Copper Project in the Paterson Province of Western Australia as one of the most significant Gold discoveries made by any company globally in recent memory."
