Saturn Metals (ASX:STN)

Saturn Metals (ASX: STN) is a mineral exploration company that owns the Apollo Hill Gold Project, which comprises nearly 1,000 square kilometres of prime exploration ground near Leonora in the heart of the Western Australian goldfields.

Saturn listed on the ASX in March 2018 after being spun out of successful New South Wales-focused explorer Peel Mining. In November 2018, the company announced a significant upgrade to the Apollo Hill Mineral Resource, which now stands at 20.7 million tonnes at 1.0 g/t Au for 685,000 ounces.

The Apollo Hill gold system remains open in all directions, underlining the significant potential to grow the resource further. The broader tenement package is also under-explored, with Saturn identifying numerous interesting regional opportunities through geophysical and geochemical surveying conducted during the year.
