Greatland Gold plc (LON:GGP), the London Stock Exchange AIM quoted precious, base and strategic metals exploration and development company is pleased to announce the appointment of Gervaise Heddle as a Non-Executive Director of Greatland Gold with effect from today’s date.

After obtaining degrees in Economics (Honours) and Arts (Jurisprudence) at the University of Adelaide, and qualifying as a CFA charterholder, Gervaise worked as an investment analyst before becoming a Director of Merrill Lynch Investment Managers and a Division Director of Macquarie Bank. As Founder and Managing Director of Bletchley Economics, he is well known as an economics commentator and provides investment consulting services. This wide experience of law, accounting, business, economics and investments, with significant resource sector exposure, brings a valuable new dimension to the board. 

Andrew Bell, Chairman of Greatland Gold commented: “We are delighted to have Gervaise Heddle join the board of Greatland Gold and we look forward to drawing on his insight and diverse business experience as we continue the process of building the Company into a substantially larger and more diverse resource business.

Greatland Gold is currently focused on projects in Western Australia and Tasmania, and as Gervaise is a resident of Australia he is well placed to provide support to Executive Director Callum Baxter in-country.  This teamwork approach will be crucial as we begin to implement our plans to further our Australian interests and potentially augment existing interests with a number of new opportunities currently under consideration.

Investors should be aware that Greatland Gold is moving into a highly proactive phase and following launch of the drilling campaign at Bromus shortly, we anticipate a number of new initiatives will be undertaken and announced to market.”
