Ardea Resources is an Australia-focused developer and explorer
Ardea Resources Limited (“Ardea”) is an Australia-focused multi-commodity explorer and developer advancing its flagship 100%-owned Goongarrie Nickel Project (“Goongarrie” or “GNCP”). GNCP is part of the largest Nickel Cobalt Resource in the developed world.
Goongarrie forms part of the broader Kalgoorlie Nickel-Cobalt project, and is located 80km north of Kalgoorlie, Western Australia - a world-class mining jurisdiction providing extensive existing infrastructure and a skilled work force.
Goongarrie is a potential multi-generational mine offering outstanding multi-commodity exposure which includes nickel, cobalt, scandium, vanadium, chromium, aluminium and gold.
Ardea is focused on the rapid development of Goongarrie towards production to leverage the ever-increasing electric vehicle and static-storage battery thematic and the growing demand for ethical nickel and cobalt.
Ardea has several additional project mineralisation styles outside of the GNCP geothite. In addition to the other laterite hosted nickel-cobalt opportunities, Ardea’s tenure also host significant “greenfields” nickel sulphide and/or gold prospects extending over 4,900km2 and representing a strategic land holding in one of Australia’s premier nickel sulphide and gold provinces.
- Nickel producer with by-product cobalt, potential credits include manganese, scandium, Rare Earths, High Purity Alumina and vanadium (all are battery or Electric Vehicle metals).
- Nickel sulphide mineralisation is documented within the KNP ultramafic host rocks (may be processed by the proposed KNP flowsheet).
- Gold mineralisation commonly underlies or is at the margin of the nickel mineralisation.
