Chalice, a globally renowned player in minerals exploration, is guided by a proficient team of proven mine-finders. The focal point of their endeavors is the Gonneville Project in Western Australia, unveiled in early 2020. This major greenfield discovery boasts a rare amalgamation of essential green metals crucial for decarbonisation and urbanisation, such as nickel, copper, cobalt, palladium, and platinum.
The Gonneville Project, with a tier-1 scale Mineral Resource Estimate, is a substantial find, containing approximately 16 million ounces of platinum group elements (PGEs), 860 thousand tonnes of nickel, 520 thousand tonnes of copper, and 83 thousand tonnes of cobalt. This positions it as one of the most significant recent nickel sulphide discoveries globally and marks the largest PGE discovery in Australian history.
Chalice is actively advancing this world-class green metals resource towards development. The recent Gonneville Scoping Study outlines the potential for a new long-life, low-cost, low-carbon green metals mine, promising robust financial returns and regional benefits. The ongoing Pre-Feasibility Study for the Gonneville Project aims to explore various development scenarios, seeking significant upside potential.
The Gonneville discovery has not only revealed a substantial mineral resource but has also uncovered a previously unexplored mineral province, the West Yilgarn Ni-Cu-PGE Province. With a commanding land position of over 9,600km2, Chalice holds a first-mover advantage in this emerging nickel sulphide province, actively progressing exploration activities across the region. The company's accomplishments have earned it prestigious recognition, including the 2023 Thayer Lindsley Award for best international mineral discovery from the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada. Led by a highly credentialed Board and management team, Chalice demonstrates a strong track record of value creation for its shareholders.
