Charger Metals will have clear sight for drilling priority nickel-copper-PGE targets at its Coates project just northeast of Perth in Western Australia.
The landholder agreement, allowing exploration at the project, is likely to trigger final Western Australian Government approvals in the coming weeks opening up the battery mineral project for staged development.
The company said its heliborne surveys and sample analysis had generated several compelling targets.
“We are delighted to have reached an agreement with the key-landowner which enables this maiden drill program at the Coates Project to proceed in the near future,” managing director David Crook said.
The company will continue planning and permitting maiden drilling at its Bynoe lithium project.
