Anitpa Minerals and JV Partner Rio Moving Ahead with Citadel Project Exploration

THE CONFERENCE CALLER: Antipa Minerals (ASX: AZY) is in the midst of an exploration program for the company’s Citadel project Farm-in and Joint Venture with Rio Tinto Exploration in Western Australia’s Paterson Province.

Antipa Minerals and Rio have a budget of $3.4 million allocated to the 2019 calendar year exploration program at Citadel, to cover the JV’s planned activities.

The exploration program is fully funded by Rio Tinto while Antipa resumed operatorship of the Citadel Farm-in, including the execution of the Exploration Program in March 2019.

Antipa stated Paterson Province dual exploration strategy strives to deliver both greenfield discoveries and increase brownfield gold and/or copper resources during 2019.

The company believes its exploration activities within the Citadel project are complementary to this strategy.
