Great Boulder is a small and highly professional exploration company with a portfolio of excellent gold and base metals assets in Western Australia. The Company’s flagship is the Side Well Gold Project near Meekatharra, where a large, high-grade gold system is emerging at Mulga Bill. This work is being conducted in parallel with earlier-stage exploration at the Whiteheads Project near Kalgoorlie. In the medium term, the new Wellington Base Metal Project is located in an emerging MVT province in the Earaheedy Basin, with initial exploration expected to commence in the second half of 2022.

With a portfolio of highly prospective assets plus the backing of a strong technical team, Great Boulder is well positioned for future success. 2022 is going to be a very busy year as the Company works towards transforming Side Well from a large-scale opportunity to a substantial high-grade gold discovery.
