Introducing MetalsGrove

MetalsGrove is a diversified explorer focused on green metal exploration for the battery and renewable energy market.

The company operates five projects across WA and the Northern Territory, including: 

  • Woodie Woodie North Project (manganese and rare earth)

  • Upper Coondina Project (lithium, tin and tantalum) 

  • Bruce Project (gold, copper, lithium and rare earth)

  • Edwards Creek Project (copper, zinc and lead)

  • Box Hole Project (zinc and lead)

Projects at a glance

MetalsGrove projects are relatively early-stage, so investors can expect activities such as mapping, rock-chip sampling and geophysical surveys to be carried out in the lead up to potential drilling activities.

Woodie Woodie North: CSR identified simple pegmatite veins as a source of tin. Pilbara Minerals (ASX: PLS) and Mineral Resource (ASX: MIN) lithium projects located towards the north-west

Upper Coondina: No serious lithium exploration has been carried out in the area. Surface sampling has returned a number of highly anomalous lithium assays

Bruce: Geological mapping confirmed potential for pegmatite-hosted rare earth mineralisation

Edwards Creek: high grade copper intercepts from historic drilling in the 80s.

Box Hole: CSIRO generated 3D geological models to assist in exploration targeting. Prospective for large tonnage lead-zinc mineralisation, potential for rare earth.

The fresh funds will support the company's efforts to progress to drilling to increase mineral resources.
