On 22 June, 2021 Waratah Minerals announced that it had agreed to acquire the Azura Project in the Halls Creek tectonic zone in the Kimberley region of Western Australia.
The Azura Project will be acquired from iCopper Pty Ltd, a syndicate in which indigenous Kimberley residents are 47% shareholders.
The combined tenement package comprises 258km2 of highly prospective geology. Historical exploration has mapped a copper-bearing trend over 8km.
The tenement package has signed heritage agreements in place with the Purnululu and Malarngowem traditional owners whose lands cover a significant portion of the East Kimberly region.
Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) have been completed, with flora and fauna surveys planned for 2024 prior to drilling activity.
