Astute Metals has partnered with Fleet Space Technologies to explore the Ranken area within its Georgina IOCG Project in the Northern Territory, Australia.

The collaboration aims to uncover potential copper, silver, zinc, and lead deposits using Fleet Space's ExoSphere by Fleet ambient noise tomography technology.

Fleet Space will invest $400,000 in Astute, acquiring an equity stake.

The ambient noise tomography survey, scheduled to commence in August, will characterise cover thickness and explore seismic velocity anomalies.
