Adavale Resources applied for a new uranium exploration license, bringing its overall territory to 1,669km2 in South Australia.

The new area was chosen based on previous drilling results, which showed potential for uranium mining and is contiguous with the company's Mundowdna uranium license.

The area covers the Flinders Ranges and is anticipated to be essential in future uranium exploration, extending north-west.

Pending license approval, Adavale will prepare for larger-scale exploration programs and heritage clearances within the system.
