Metals Australia launched new exploration programs focusing on critical minerals and gold across three key project areas.

The initiatives target strategic locations adjacent to significant deposits in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

In the Northern Territory, the Warrego East Copper-Gold Project in the Tennant Creek mineral field will begin initial drilling of an untested copper-gold corridor near the Warrego mine.

In Western Australia's Pilbara region, the Warrambie Critical Minerals Project plans to drill lithium-pegmatite targets near the Andover lithium discovery.

An aeromagnetic survey is underway across gold tenements near the Big Bell gold deposit in Western Australia's Murchison Gold Province to identify targets for aircore drilling.
