Stockhead’s Ashtyn Hiron sits down with Western Yilgarn (ASX:WYX) general manager Gavin Rutherford to close the books on 2023 and gain a sneak peek into what’s around the corner.

They say good things come to those who wait and Western Yilgarn is certainly living proof of that adage after the company secured an exploration licence for its Julimar West project north of Perth.

“That’s bordering Chalice’s Gonneville discovery – so we’re about 2,000m away from Gonneville,” Rutherford said.

“We’ve been waiting a long time to have our exploration lease granted and that was granted [in] November after five years of waiting…we’re very happy.

“We can start exploring right next door to the largest nickel-equivalent and PGE discovery of the last 20 years.”

Tune in to hear what’s coming up for Western Yilgarn in 2024.
