BOA Resources is exploring the minerals to drive the future

Nickel tenements in highly prospective Fraser Range

BOA’s nickel focus is in the Western Australian Fraser Range. The state is renowned for its attractive mining investment landscape and rich mineral resources. It is named one of the top mining investment jurisdictions in the Fraser Institute index of mining investment attractiveness.

In the Fraser Range, the company holds 12 exploration licences covering an expansive area of 919sqkm. The tenements are strategically positioned north and south of IGO’s Nova-Bollinger Ni-Co-Cu mine.

Importantly, BOA has a strategic collaboration with IGO, whereby IGO is actively exploring six of BOA’s twelve licences in the Fraser Range. This partnership underscores BOA’s commitment to unlocking the next Nova-Bollinger nickel deposit in collaboration with a key industry player.
