A$5.5M Placement to Accelerate Exploration and Resource Growth Drilling at Golden Range and Fields Find

Warriedar Resources Limited (ASX: WA8) (Warriedar or the Company) is pleased to advise that it has secured binding commitments to raise A$5.5 million through the issue of approximately 78.6 million shares (New Shares) at an issue price of A$0.07 per share (Placement).


  • Firm commitments received from new and existing institutional & sophisticated investors to raise A$5.5m (before costs).
  • Firm commitments include $1.0 million in drilling equity from shareholder and contract partner, Topdrill.
  • New funds to accelerate drilling and exploration of priority gold and base metals targets at the Golden Range and Fields Find Projects in the Murchison region, Western Australia.
  • Drilling of high-potential base metal targets at Fields Find West to commence in coming weeks.

Warriedar’s Managing Director and CEO, Amanda Buckingham, commented:

“We are very pleased with the strong support received for this capital raising from both our existing shareholders and new investors. The result is a strong endorsement of the exploration potential of our Golden Range and Fields Find Projects, located in the exploration and development hotspot of the Murchison region.

Over the last 9 months, the Warriedar team has worked meticulously to set the business up for success. Following the acquisition of our WA projects, we quickly established a team of high-performing geoscientists, and we surrounded them with an experienced senior management and Board. We have built strong relationships with our key contractors and optimised our exploration processes to deliver efficient and effective exploration targeting that is focused on new discoveries and Resource growth.

This raising allows us to accelerate our exploration and growth drilling activities in WA. The focus of this is twofold: rapid build of further mineable gold Mineral Resource ounces, coupled with drill testing high-potential, advanced base metals targets across the western area of the Fields Find Project.”

Drill testing of high-potential base metals targets with a focus on Fields Find West

As announced to the ASX on 3 August 2023, Warriedar has now received Programs of Work (POWs) approval to drill high-priority geophysical (EM) and geological copper targets on the western side of the Fields Find Project (Fields Find West).

These targets scheduled for drilling are proximal to significant ore-grade copper, gold and other base metals intercepts, including:

  • Falcon Prospect: 2m @ 4.4% Ni from 122m, and 1m @ 1.3% Cu & 6.3 g/t Au from 98m
  • Sandpiper Prospect: 4m @ 36.9 g/t Au from 104m, and 1m @ 2.5% Cu & 24.5 g/t Au from 96m
  • Historic Warriedar Copper mine: Surface rock chip sampling returned: 20.1% Cu (MGRX003134); 17.8% Cu (MGRX003135)

These intercepts were not followed up by previous owners as they were not suitable for the Golden Range processing plant which was designed only to process oxide gold mineralisation.

Fields Find West offers some of the best brownfield and geophysical targets for both base metals and gold from across the Fields Find and Golden Range Projects (see Figure 2, ASX release 3 August 2023 for prospect locations).

The planned drilling at Fields Find West is designed to test an aggregate of 10 specific target areas. The Stage 1 program of approximately 5,600m RC drilling encompasses testing of the initial approved targets being the historic Warriedar Copper Mine and the Falcon Prospect.
