The Mt Edwards Project was originally acquired by Neometals as a nickel and lithium project, but the subsequent magnitude of the nickel discoveries swiftly realigned the core focus of Mt Edwards to the metal.

Mt Edwards is a unique consolidation of a vast 240km2 package of highly prospective nickel and new economy metal prospects, with 162,560t of contained Nickel across eleven separate nickel sulphide mineral resources already having been identified.

Mt Edwards is located just 75km south of the major regional centre of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, 40km south west of Kambalda, and along strike from Mincor’s new Cassini mine. This places Mt Edwards near significant developed infrastructure including sealed roads, mains power, gas and potable water pipelines.

The optimal project location of Mt Edwards provides Widgie with considerable flexibility to either sell the ore directly, build a processing plant, utilise nearby concentrators, or pursue offtake opportunities aligned to the EV sector.

The historical lack of recognition at Mt Edwards of potential by-product credits presents a significant upside in the potential value generated at the Project from critical metal by-products. Widgie has already identified the presence of high grade palladium in Armstrong ore which deports readily to nickel concentrates.

The Project’s vast package of highly-prospective tenements underpins Widgie targeting $2-3 million per annum in greenfields exploration for nickel and other critical metals, signifying considerable long-term growth potential.
