Warriedar Resources Limited (ASX: WA8) is an advanced gold and copper exploration business with an existing resource base of approximately 2 Moz gold across Western Australia and Nevada, and a robust pipeline of high-calibre drill targets. Warriedar’s focus is on rapidly building our resource inventory though modern, innovative exploration. They are well funded for our planned aggressive drilling programs through 2023.
Warriedar’s Golden Range and Fields Find Projects in Western Australia sit in the middle of the highly active Murchison exploration and mining province, which hosts substantial deposits of both gold and base metals. In particular, the world-class Golden Grove VMS camp sits just 3 km from their tenure boundary, with the host sequence for that cluster of deposits extending south onto our ground.
Warriedar’s Big Springs Gold Project in Nevada, USA, is adjacent to First Majestic Silver’s Jerritt Canyon Gold Mine Complex, an operating mine with a production history of over 10 Moz gold. Big Springs has an existing resource base of approximately 1 Moz gold within a granted mining licence, surrounded by approximately 93km2 of prime exploration ground prospective for Carlin-style gold.
