Venus Metals Corporation continues to uncover fresh precious metal targets across the Youanmi terrane in Western Australia. An ongoing evaluation of the company’s comprehensive geophysical and geochemical datasets has highlighted a trio of platinum group element, or “PGE” prospects in the southern Youanmi tenement area, with historical drilling returning assays of up to 2.18 grams per tonne platinum and palladium.

The company says new PGE targets show marked geological similarities to Chalice Mining’s celebrated Julimar discovery, which was made in early 2020, just to the north-east of Perth.
