Greatland Gold has started drilling at the Bromus project in Western Australia.
It said the programme consisted of two drill holes that would test two highly conductive targets which were identified by recent downhole EM surveys.
It said the key objective of the programme was to determine the nature of the two conductive targets, both of which were considered high priority targets for massive sulphide mineralisation.
Chief executive Gervaise Heddle said: "We are very pleased to commence drilling at Bromus and follow up on the work done last year that identified two highly conductive targets. In our opinion, both of these high priority targets are prospective for nickel sulphide mineralisation.
"We expect drilling to be completed within the next two weeks and assay results should be available by the end of April."
