Encounter Resources Limited 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 deposits in Western Australia’s most prospective gold districts: the Tanami, the Paterson Province and the Yilgarn.
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 Proterozoic Paterson Province where it is exploring for copper-cobalt deposits with highly successful mining and exploration company IGO Limited (ASX:IGO), and intrusive related copper-gold deposits at its 100% owned Lamil Project.
In addition, project generation activities in the Northern Territory utilising new Geoscience Australia datasets has resulted in Encounter securing the first mover Elliott and Jessica copper projects.
