OUR EXPLORATION ACTIVITY
Encounter Resources has a range of exploration projects currently underway throughout Western Australia.
Encounter Resources Limited (“Encounter”) is a Western Australian (“WA”) based exploration and resource development company. The company holds exploration tenure over 2,000km² of the Paterson Province in WA, that hosts the Telfer gold-copper mine and the Nifty copper mine. Encounter is actively exploring for gold-copper deposits in the Telfer region as well as copper-cobalt and zinc-lead deposits at Yeneena (Figure 1).
The Company’s gold portfolio includes Telfer West, a recently identified large scale gold system, and East Thomson’s Dome where widespread coarse gold has been identified adjacent to high grade outcropping gold reefs.
The copper-cobalt and zinc-lead prospects identified at Yeneena are located adjacent to major regional faults and have been identified through electromagnetics, geochemistry and structural targeting.
Separate to the projects in the Paterson Province, Encounter has a project generation alliance covering northern WA with Australia’s largest gold mining company, Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM) (Figure 2). Encounter controls exploration tenure of 4,200km² in the Tanami region in WA. The West Tanami tenements are currently being assessed under the project generation alliance with Newcrest Mining Limited.
