What does Metals Australia Ltd (MLS) do?
It's not hard to guess. Metals Australia Ltd is a minerals exploration company. They focus on sourcing zinc, gold, silver, copper, lithium, graphite, nickel, and other base metal deposits throughout Australia and Canada.
Based in Perth, Metals Australia is currently focused on five projects:
Manindi Lithium & Zinc Project — Located in the Murchison District of Western Australia, approximately 20 kilometres southwest of the Youanmi gold mine, this project is comprised of three mining leases and host to an undeveloped zinc deposit. Assay results have also found lithium, rubidium and tantalum.
Lac Rainy Graphite Project — Located 22 kilometres southwest of the historic mining town of Fermont in Quebec, Canada, Lac Rainy covers an area of approximately 45.5 square kilometres and consists of 92 mineral claims. Metals has been carrying out metallurgical testwork and is close to completion.
Eade Copper-Gold Project — Approximately 120 kilometres east of Radisson in Quebec, Canada, this project is made of two distinct domains: West Eade and East Eade. Each domain is 12 kilometres apart and both are considered to be highly prospective for gold, copper and silver.
Lac du Marcheur Copper-Cobalt Project — Covering an area of 17.8 square kilometres, the project represents 35 active mineral claims. An airborne magnetics and electromagnetic (EM) program was completed in January 2022. Further exploration is being planned.
Nepean South Nickel Project — Located south of and along strike of the historic Nepean nickel sulphide mine and considered highly prospective for gold and nickel. Metals acquired a 100% interest in the project in March 2021 from Auroch Minerals (AOU). To stay focused on Manindi and Lac Rainy, Metals has outsourced the project to Sabre Resources (SBR).
