At a critical time when it is essential for the Australian minerals industry to make the next generation of Tier 1 copper discoveries to meet burgeoning demand, Encounter Resources is driving a program of greenfields exploration in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Encounter is advancing large-scale projects in the emerging copper regions in Australia, including the Aileron project in the West Arunta critical minerals province where recent exploration has established the IOCG and rare earth element (“REE”) potential of the region.

Beyond the West Arunta, Encounter has partnered with leading miners BHP, South32 and IGO in major funded copper exploration partnerships to find new world-class mineral fields in the NT and WA.
