Antipa Minerals (ASX:AZY)

Antipa Minerals Limited (ASX:AZY) is a mineral exploration company focused on the Paterson Province in northern Western Australia. Antipa established itself in the Paterson in 2011 in the belief that the region had excellent potential to produce more tier-one discoveries like Newcrest Mining’s Telfer gold and copper operation.

The company has since compiled a portfolio of more than 5,500 square kilometres of tenements over prime exploration ground and has experienced success in defining significant precious and base metals resources. Antipa’s Citadel Project, which is a joint venture with Rio Tinto, contains a resource of 1.64 million ounces of gold and 127,000 tonnes of copper across the Calibre and Magnum deposits, while its 100 percent-owned North Telfer Project contains a resource of 723,000 ounces of gold and 26,000 tonnes of copper across the Minyari and WACA deposits.

In 2015, Antipa’s work on the Citadel Project attracted Rio TInto as a partner, with the major able to earn up to 75 percent of the project by spending $60 million on exploration. While Rio Tinto continues to fund exploration at Citadel, Antipa is undertaking a major program of drilling and geophysics on its 100 percent-owned projects aimed at significantly expanding existing resources and making new greenfields discoveries.
