Western Australia Energy Resources Limited is an exploration and development company established to discover, define and develop battery metal resource projects to help the worldwide efforts towards electrification of our vehicles, homes and power grids through batteries and EVs.
This movement is underway, and will only see increased demand for Nickel, Lithium, PGE (platinum-group elements) and REE (rare-earth elements) to supply the needed energy storage and infrastructure.
The company has a large 940km2 package of ground in the emerging “lithium corridor” of Western Australia, with a large land-holding straddling the Ida Fault and the Jimberlana Dyke, home to an existing JORC-inferred resource of 9.25 Mt @ 0.810% Ni and 0.051% Co, along with granites hosting greenstone belt rocks, in an area that remains the heart of the WA nickel zone, and adjacent to prospective gold ground.
