West Africa

Focused on discovering new Ni-Cu-PGE resources in West Africa,  Newgenco Exploration (West Africa) Pty Ltd (‘NEWA’) is a private company that was incorporated in Australia in 2009.

In March 2010, NEWA signed a 3-year strategic project generation alliance with TSX- and LME-listed First Quantum Minerals to explore for economic magmatic nickel-copper-platinum group element  (Ni-Cu-PGE) sulphide resources across Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali and other countries in West Africa.  A 1-year extension to the alliance was signed in late 2012. Multiple project opportunities were identified.  The Alliance was terminated in January 2014.  NEWA continued to work with FQM on the Dablo Project JV until 2016.

Exploration at the Dablo Project continues, with a 3000m RC drill program being completed in April 2018.

Newgenco is currently seeking a partner to support exploration of additional Ni-Cu-PGE opportunities that it has identified in the West Africa region.
