“The signing of this option agreement is another step forward in ECR’s campaign to become a leading Australian focused gold and strategic metals exploration and development company,” said Craig Brown, ECR chief executive.

“Competition for project opportunities in the Proterozoic belts is increasing, particularly following recent large discoveries in the Paterson province of Western Australia. There remains the potential for further multi-million ounce discoveries within this type of geology.”

Brown added: “Given this backdrop, the ECR Minerals team are excited to be offered an opportunity to secure an option over this project package. Subject to the successful completion of our due diligence work, we look forward to moving forward with the project.”
