Nexus Project

West Arunta (WAR) REE & Lithium Project (Nexus)

During 2023 the Company engaged with the representative body for the traditional owners of the country where the Nexus project is located. The Tjamu Tjamu Registered Native Title Body Corporate now represents the exclusive possession native title holders. The area is also an Aboriginal Reserve.

The Company has re-commenced discussions with the Tjamu Tjamu and will spend the next several months finalising the Heritage and Access negotiation and agreement, prior to formalising work programs.

The Nexus Project is located in the West Arunta of Western Australia’s Kimberley region.  The project comprises one granted exploration licence (E80/5917) and the Company has entered into an agreement to purchase a second, contiguous exploration licence (E80/5778).

Attention has been focused on the West Arunta region recently through the discovery of a high-grade carbonatite hosted niobium deposit by explorer WA1 Resources Limited (ASX: WA1) and ongoing lithium exploration by Independence Group (ASX: IGO), amongst others.

APC’s exploration strategy at Nexus is to expand the work conducted by previous tenement holders, by pursuing the increasing tenor of lithium and rare earth mineralisation in the lacustrine clays overlying the Bitter Springs formation to the south of the Webb Granite.  

APC's Nexus Project in the West Arunta is poised to generate value through REE exploration
