Copper, silver and gold mineralisation at Scallywag, WA
Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), the precious and base metals exploration and development company, today announces that Mobile Metal Ion (“MMI”) sampling over its Scallywag target has detected copper, silver, gold and multiple supporting pathfinder elements over a strike length of approximately 6km.
The Scallywag target, located within the Company’s 100%-owned Havieron licence in the Paterson region of Western Australia, consists of several magnetic anomalies over a large area of approximately 6km by 4km, each with the potential to host gold, silver and/or copper mineralisation.
Scallywag represents a high priority target for further exploration given the large size of the target, its relative proximity to Havieron, and its potential to host the prospective basement sequence under relatively shallow cover at probable depths of around 50m. The grouping pattern of certain elements are similar in style to those seen in MMI and drill essays from the Company’s Havieron prospect.
