Our Projects

The Company is currently exploring within Australia and Peru and holds in excess of 5,000 km² of exploration title (granted tenements and tenement applications).

The Company has a Strategic Alliance Agreement with South32 (SAA) that has been active since February 2017 (7 years), with South32 providing funds to advance selected early-stage prospects to the drilling stage with follow-up drilling under agreed joint venture terms. During 2023 the SAA was extended for a further 2 year period with a focus on exploration programs in Australia. An administration fee (15%) on all funds expended under the SAA helps to fund ongoing project generation and administration costs of the Company.

The Company explores for a range of commodities and mineralisation styles including magmatic nickel-copper-platinum group element sulphides, large porphyry copper and iron oxide-copper-gold, stratabound base metals and more recently lithium and Rare Earth Element deposits. Most of the projects are “greenfields” in nature although initial drilling at several of the Company’s projects has already intersected base metal mineralisation.

Peru - Copper - Gold

Over the past twelve years AusQuest has assembled a world-class exploration opportunity in Peru, South America – one of the world’s most prominent destinations for international copper exploration.

Balladonia Cu-Pb-Zn-Ni Project

The Balladonia Project is located ~60km south of the Nova–Bollinger nickel-copper deposit.  Recent drilling intersected potential “lode packages” similar to those found in NW Queensland and at Broken Hill.

Jubilee Lake Ni-Cu-PGE Project

The Jubilee Lake Project is located ~500km east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, within a large flood basalt terrane with similarities to the Norilsk district in Russia.

Moora Ni-Cu-PGE Project

The Moora Project is located ~150km north of Perth, Western Australia, and became the focus of industry attention following the discovery by Chalice Mining of the Julimar nickel-copper-PGE deposit, which highlighted the untested nickel-copper-PGE potential of this region.

Morrisey Well Magnetite (Fe), Ni-Cu-PGE Project

The Morrisey Project is located ~500km north of Perth WA within the Narryer Terrane, and contains coarsely crystalline magnetite that can be easily beneficiated to >70% Fe.

Mount Davis Cu-Pb-Zn-Ni Project

The Mt Davis Project is located ~180km NNE of Wiluna, Western Australia, along the northern margin of the Earaheedy Basin. It consists of one Exploration Licence and covers an area of ~380km².

Hamilton IOCG Project

The Hamilton Project is located in north-west Queensland, ~120km south of the world-class Cannington mine, and is targeting IOCG and BHT style deposits.
