IGO - up to 70%
Paterson region of Western Australia
Copper (Cu), Cobalt (Co), Gold (Au)
The newly expanded Paterson Project comprises tenements covering approximately 6,844km2 in the highly prospective Paterson Province targeting sediment-hosted copper-cobalt and copper-gold mineralisation.
IGO has had an interest in the Paterson region for some time though our Yeneena Joint Venture with Encounter Resources Limited. During 2020, we expanded our presence in the Paterson region through joint ventures with Metals X Limited and Antipa Minerals Limited.
Through these new agreements, IGO has added a significant portfolio of greenfields exploration projects which are highly prospective for major base and precious metals discoveries. IGO’s tenure is proximal to operating and historic mining operations such as Nifty and Telfer, as well as recent major discoveries including Rio Tinto’s Winu copper-gold resource and the Havieron gold-copper prospect held by Newcrest Mining Limited and Greatland Gold plc.
IGO intends to increase its focus on this project with various geophysics and drilling programs planned.
