ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece has approved a technical study for test drilling by Canada's Eldorado Gold Corp <ELD.TO> at one of its mine fields, the energy ministry said on Monday.

Greece has been in talks with Eldorado on a revised investment plan to secure higher royalties from mining development projects and new jobs.

The ministry said on Monday that these talks are ongoing.
