Notes for Editors:

Greatland Gold plc is a London Stock Exchange AIM-listed (AIM:GGP) natural resource exploration and development company with a current focus on precious and base metals.

The Company's flagship asset is the world class Havieron gold-copper deposit in the Paterson region of Western Australia. This asset is held in joint venture with Newcrest Mining Ltd. Havieron is located approximately 45km east of Newcrest's Telfer gold mine, processing plant and existing infrastructure.

Construction of the box cut and decline to develop the Havieron orebody commenced in February 2021. In addition, a substantial ongoing growth drilling programme is presently underway at Havieron which is being undertaken in conjunction with the preparation of a Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS"). The PFS is expected to be released in late calendar 2021.

The Joint Venture Agreement includes tolling principles reflecting the intention of the parties that, subject to positive decision to mine, the resulting joint venture mineralised material will be processed at Telfer.

Greatland is seeking to identify large mineral deposits in areas that have not been subject to extensive exploration previously. It is widely recognised that the next generation of large deposits will come from such under-explored areas and Greatland is applying advanced exploration techniques to investigate a number of carefully selected targets within its focused licence portfolio.

The Company is actively investigating a range of new opportunities in Australia for precious and strategic metals.
