Michael McNeilly, Chief Executive Officer of Metal Tiger, commented:
“We are pleased to make this investment in Artemis as it progresses its aggressive exploration plans at Paterson and Carlow Castle. Following Metal Tiger’s successful investment in Greatland Gold in 2019, after the discovery of Havieron at Paterson, the Investment provides Metal Tiger with the opportunity to potentially benefit from further new gold discoveries in the highly prospective Paterson region of Western Australia. In addition, Artemis has a pre-existing gold-copper-cobalt resource at Carlow Castle and the Radio Hill processing plant, which has the potential to become a standalone mining operation in the future.”
