OzAurum Resources
Company Overview

OzAurum Resources is a gold explorer in Western Australia and lithium & niobium/REE explorer in Brazil.

OzAurum was established to identify, explore and develop two long-held, strategic gold projects in Western Australia.

The Company is the 100% owner of Mulgabbie North and the Patricia Project, which together cover a strike length of 10km of greenstone belt geology in the Norseman-Wiluna Greenstone Belt, one of the richest and most prolific gold-producing camps in Australia.

OzAurum’s tenement portfolio sits in the shadow of Northern Star Resources’ (ASX:NST) Carosue Dam gold mine about 100km northeast of Kalgoorlie, a region that has been the subject of considerable greenfields exploration.

Notable explorers in the area include St Barbara (ASX:SBM), Breaker Resources (ASX:BRB), Nexus Minerals (ASX: NXM) and Apollo Consolidated (ASX:AOP).

OzAurum's Brazil Exploration Strategy in Brazil uncovers significant lithium and other critical mineral opportunities.

  • Boca Rica Lithium Project with spodumene zone identified and offers extensive LCT pegmatite swarms that extend for over 1.7kms and provide the scale to make a significant lithium discovery.
  • Applications have been lodged for 50,000ha of tenure prospective for Niobium and REE adjacent to known Brazil carbonatite complexes at Catalao II Project and Salitre which are currently being mined for Niobium and Phosphates.
  • Niobium and REE targets within OZM tenure have been identified with 7 interpreted circular features.
  • Further advanced lithium opportunities in the State of Minas Gerais Brazil.
