Business Strategy

  • Exploration Partnerships (Option to Joint Venture) = Lower Risk
  • Equity + Royalty Generation = Value Creation
  • Sole-funded Exploration: Discovery-Focused

Exploration Strategy

  • Safe Jurisdictions: politically stable and mining-friendly
  • Commodity Focus: Au, Cu, Ni, Li
  • Large-scale: exposure to 1,328,000 hectares mineral tenure
  • Systematic: property-wide phased exploration surveys
  • Under-explored: low exploration maturity and un-depleted search spaces
  • Under-cover: glacial overburden or post-mineral cover
  • Exploration 'Pipeline’: multiple projects from greenfields through to advanced stages
