Gold and Nickel Exploration Update

Miramar Resources Limited (ASX:M2R, “Miramar” or “the Company”) is pleased to provide an update on exploration programmes planned for its Eastern Goldfields and Gascoyne region projects.

The Company is currently working toward the maiden drilling campaign within the Bangemall Ni-Cu-Co- PGE projects and has expanded its strategic 480 km2 Eastern Goldfields tenement portfolio (Figure 1).

Miramar’s Executive Chairman, Mr Allan Kelly, said the Company’s Eastern Goldfields exploration project portfolio had significant value not recognised in the current share price.

“Since listing in 2020 with a portfolio of highly prospective early-stage gold, nickel and copper projects in Western Australia, we have systematically advanced our key projects up the exploration value chain, added to our land position through strategic tenement applications and relinquished those tenements which lacked significant discovery potential,” Mr Kelly said.

“In a record gold price environment, the inherent value of our gold projects, including our flagship Gidji JV Project, where we have made multiple new gold discoveries immediately along strike from one of the richest patches of earth on the planet, is significant,” he added.

“We’ve also advanced our Bangemall Projects from the initial concept to high priority drill targets which could define a new style of nickel mineralisation in a new mineral province,” he said.

Bangemall Ni-Cu-Co-PGE Projects

Miramar holds a strategic land position within the Edmund and Collier Basins where it is targeting nickel- copper-cobalt-PGE mineralisation related to Kulkatharra Dolerite sills, part of the Warakurna Large Igneous Province and the same age as the Giles Complex intrusions which host the large Nebo and Babel nickel-copper deposits in the West Musgraves of WA.

Miramar’s initial aim is to show “proof of concept” of its Norilsk-style deposit model by discovering Ni-Cu- Co-PGE sulphide mineralisation.

Over the previous 24 months, the Company has progressed from regional-scale area selection to collection of project-scale datasets and, more recently, to delineation of individual drill targets at the Mount Vernon and Trouble Bore Projects (Figure 2).

The Company is now working towards the first drill programme targeting this style of mineralisation within the region and has already received Programme of Work (POW) approval from the Department of Energy, Mines, industry Regulation and Safety (DMEIRS).

Upcoming work includes completion of a heritage survey, systematic rock chip sampling and/or further ground geophysics to help refine the initial RC drill targets.

Pending receipt of all relevant approvals, the Company hopes to complete the maiden drill programme during mid-2024.
