Corporate Overview3D Resources Limited was established in July 2006 with a strategy to consolidate and further explore some under-explored mineral properties located within selected geologically prospective areas in Western Australia. The Directors have been involved in the consolidation and exploration of the Company's key projects for a number of years giving them an important understanding of the potential of the areas and the requirements for future exploration. The Directors of 3D Resources have ensured that a high level of ownership has been maintained in the prospects purchased by the Company to provide the Shareholders with as much leverage as possible in any potential future exploration success.
The Company was admitted to the Official List of the Australian Securities Exchange on 19 March 2007 after raising a total of $4M including $1M oversubscriptions. The shares commenced trading on the Australian Stock Exchange on 21 March 2007 with a total of 21,730,100 shares quoted. The Company’s management can demonstrate a great depth of experience in exploration and mining covering a diverse inventory of commodities ranging from gold to PGE (platinum group elements), the base metals including copper, nickel, lead and zinc and the high value minerals that are increasing in demand and include tin, tungsten, molybdenum, rare earths and uranium. The Directors of the Company have been associated with the successful development of mines both in Australia and overseas.
The Company controls a quality exploration portfolio that includes the Mt Angelo porphyry copper - molybedenum prospect, the Mt Angelo North VMS base metals prospect, Bent Ridge gold – copper prospect, the Tiger nickel-copper prospect and the Mclntosh PGM-nickel-copper prospect that is the subject of a joint venture with Sally Malay Mining Limited in the East Kimberley. The Cosmo Newbery gold prospect occurs in one of the last remaining greenstone belts in the Eastern Goldfields to be intensively explored using modern techniques. This greenstone belt is largely held under tenure by 3D Resources with tenements covering an aggregate of 467 km2 .
The Mt Agnes project in the Ashburton region represents copper – gold mineralisation associated with a deformed stockwork system and is interpreted to represent a potential Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) style of deposit.
During a time when base metals, PGM and gold are in strong demand and the mining industry is receiving high commodity prices, 3D Resources will strive to intensively explore and potentially develop and exploit its exploration prospects in Western Australia.
