Our Strategy

Meteoric is working to unlock the inherent value of its Palm Springs Gold Project in the Halls Creek Orogen of Western Australia and its Juruena Gold Project in Brazil.

In Brazil, Meteoric is focused on further exploration of the significant Porphyry Copper-Gold potential following the identification of a Massive IP Chargeability anomaly beneath the Juruena Gold Deposit in 2020.

In 2021 Meteoric will carry out a 3,600m (3 hole) drilling program designed to test the interpreted giant Cu-Au rich porphyry system.

The Company’s 2021 field program in Western Australia is designed to rapidly advance the Palm Springs Gold Project towards production. Meteoric aims to produce a Maiden Resource Estimate below the Butchers Creek Open Pit and along strike to the south-west.
