Encounter Resources Limited (ASX:ENR) is one of the most productive project generation and active mineral exploration companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange.
Encounter’s primary focus is on discovering major gold and copper deposits in Australia.
The company is advancing a highly prospective suite of projects in the Tanami and West Arunta regions via joint ventures with Australia’s largest gold miner, Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM).
Complementing its expansive gold portfolio, Encounter controls a major ground position in the emerging Paterson Province where it is exploring for copper-cobalt deposits in joint venture with highly successful mining and exploration company IGO Limited (ASX:IGO) and for copper-gold deposits at its 100% owned Lamil Project.
In addition, utilising new Geoscience Australia datasets, Encounter moved early and aggressively to secure a series of camp scale, first mover opportunities in the Northern Territory based on their potential to contain large, sedimentary-hosted and IOCG style copper deposits.
