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.

The Company has commenced its 2020 drilling program at Juruena which aims to extend the known areas of gold mineralisation and build on the existing JORC resource.

After completion of the Palm Springs acquisition, the Company has commenced an initial exploration and drilling program.  Palm Springs previously produced 52,000oz gold from the Butchers Creek mine and also has spectacular drill intercepts and historic resources but little modern exploration.
