The recently listed company holds lithium, gold, and nickel projects across the state, prioritising its Forrestania project found in a world-class province for the battery metal.

New chief executive Angus Thomson comes with a lengthy career on the geological and corporate side of the resource industry, having a corporate and operational abilities.
Incoming exploration manager Melissa McClelland comes with solid experience in both lithium and gold, boasting Kidman Resources massive Mt Holland lithium project on her extensive CV.
Many years of experience as chief financial officer and company secretary of ASX-listed resources and industrial companies led Cecilia Tyndall to these roles at Forrestania, where she succeeds Simon Adams in the secretary role.
The company said the appointments would significantly expand its corporate and on-ground lithium capabilities.
“It is a testament to the exceptional exploration opportunities in our portfolio that we have attracted such highly experienced and credentialled members into our team,” chairman John Hannaford said.
The new additions will join the company in the next few weeks to plot exploration drilling programs for 2022.
