Growth Strategy

Western Areas growth strategy includes continued exploration programs, pre-development projects and a disciplined approach to potential acquisitions.

Western Areas was built upon the successful discovery of two high-grade nickel ore bodies at Forrestania, and this forms a natural part of the Company’s continuing growth strategy.  A significant re-investment in exploration at Forrestania is led by the proven team responsible for discovering the Flying Fox and Spotted Quoll ore bodies.  The Company believes significant further discovery potential exists and success in this program will naturally leverage existing installed production infrastructure.
