Kimberley Projects

Dreadnought controls ~420 sq kms in the highly prospective West Kimberley region of WA.

The main project area, Tarraji-Yampi, is located only 85kms from the port of Derby and has been locked up as a Defence Reserve since 1978.

Tarraji-Yampi presents a rare first mover opportunity with known outcropping mineralisation and historic workings from the early 1900’s which have seen no modern exploration.

In 2021, Dreadnought discovered the Orion Cu-Au massive sulphides as part of its first exploration drilling program.

Tarraji-Yampi is located within a Proterozoic orogenic belt with proven potential for Cu-Au VMS at Orion and Epithermal Cu-Au mineralisation at Grants and is located along strike of the Merlin/Double Magic and Dogleg Ni-Cu-PGE discoveries.


  • ~420 sq kms in West Kimberley
  • Unexplored since the 1970s with known outcropping mineralisation
  • Dreadnought is the first to deploy modern geochemical and geophysical techniques to explore for mineralisation under shallow cover in the region
  • Five clusters of historical mining on outcropping mineralisation
  • Previous drilling includes thick high-grade intersections

“The global demand for copper could double from 25mt to 50mt by 2035. Under this scenario, by 2030, supply from both existing and projected copper mines will meet just 80% of demand.”
