Greatland Gold CEO upbeat about potential of the Firetower site

The company’s CEO was pleased to report a second set of positive results from its recent drilling campaign at the Firetower site.

‘They show a further improvement in the continuity between drill sections and highlight the potential for a robust, near-surface gold system,’ Greatland Gold CEO Gervaise Heddle said.

‘Initial results at the previously undrilled Firetower East prospect are also promising, with drilling intersecting silver and zinc mineralisation and the potential for a Volcanic Hosted Massive Sulphide system,’ he added.

Analytical results for the final two holes (including the second drill hole at Firetower East) are expected to be received in early 2020 and if positive could help send the stock higher.
