Meteoric Resources NL (ASX: MEI; “Meteoric” or the “Company”) is pleased to advise it has successfully completed its Acquisition of the highly prospective Juruena and Novo Astro Gold Projects in Brazil from Crusader Resources (ASX:CAS) on the terms as set out in its Announcement dated 21 March 2019.
Meteoric Resources MD, Dr Andrew Tunks commented:
“The formal completion of the Acquisition of Juruena and Novo Astro marks the commencement of the next exciting stage of development for Meteoric as we move to commence exploration. I am immediately travelling to site to join our Operations Manager, Peter Sheehan and our Brazilian team to finalise our initial drilling plan for Dona Maria and Querosene, our two most advanced targets on Juruena. These prospects already contain a combined high-grade JORC 2012 Mineral Resource Estimate of 436,000t @ 14.7 g/t for 205,000 Au it is our intention to complete further drilling at these bonanza grade prospects
“This is truly an exciting time for the Company and its shareholders as we move into gold exploration in what we believe is one of the most prospective regions in the world, the Alta Floresta Belt in Brazil, which is home to majors including Anglo American and Vale. Since the announcement of the Acquisition back in April, the Meteoric team – myself included – have been itching to get on the ground and start exploration and I am simply thrilled that we are now mobilising.”
