Greatland Gold's field operations team have commenced drilling at the Bromus project;

Bromus drilling programme will target four well defined bedrock conductors that were identified by last year's surface EM survey;

Key objective of the circa 1,000m drilling programme is to determine the nature of the bedrock conductors and their nickel content;

Downhole EM surveys will also be undertaken during the drill programme to determine the size and orientation of buried targets.

Callum Baxter, Executive Director, commented: 'We are very pleased to have commenced drilling at our 100% owned Bromus project. We hope that this marks the beginning of an exciting phase of exploration for the Company across its existing projects, notably Bromus and Ernest Giles.

The Bromus nickel sulphide targets identified by last year's geophysical work will be tested by approximately 1,000m of RC and diamond drilling. It is anticipated that downhole EM surveys will be conducted as part of the drilling campaign in order to determine the size and orientation of any potential nickel sulphide targets.

We expect the drilling programme to be completed within the next four weeks, subject to weather conditions. However, final assay results may take longer to receive. The Board believes that it is a particularly opportune time to commence drilling given the recent rise in the nickel price.

Further announcements regarding the progress and results of drilling at Bromus will be made in due course.'
