Shares in Greatland Gold PLC (GGP.LN) rose Thursday after the company said results from Newcrest Mining Ltd.'s (NCM.AU) first drilling campaign at the Havieron license in Western Australia confirmed high-grade gold-copper mineralization.

In March the mining company entered a farm-in deal with Newcrest, one of the world's biggest gold miners, regarding its wholly-owned Havieron license.

Newcrest can acquire up to 70% in 12 blocks within the license that covers the Havieron target by spending up to $65 million and completing a series of milestones over a six-year period.

Greatland Gold said Newcrest found a range of gold grades including from 0.59 grams a ton to 21 grams a ton, across a variety of depths.

The company said Newcrest will now expand its exploration campaign from two drill rigs to four.

Shares at 0900 GMT were up 10% at 1.97 pence.
