Highly Prospective Panton PGM Project

The Panton PGM Project is held under three granted Mining Leases (M80/103, M80/104 and M80/105) covering an area of approximately 23km2 located ~60 kilometres north of Halls Creek, Western Australia.


Mineral Resource Estimate

The Panton PGM Project has a 2003 JORC Mineral Resource Estimate of 14.3Mt @ 5.2g/t PGM + Au for 2.4Moz


Opportunity at Panton PGM

No significant exploration has been conducted on the Panton PGM Project for almost 20 years







Future Metals NL (ASX: FME) is an Australian based exploration Company focused on advancing its Panton PGM Project in the eastern Kimberly region of Western Australia.

The 100% owned Panton PGM project is located 60 kilometres north of the town of Halls Creek in the east Kimberly region of Western Australia, a tier one mining jurisdiction.

The Project is located on three granted mining licences and situated just 1 kilometre off the Great North Highway which accesses the Port of Wyndham. The Project has a JORC Mineral Resource estimate of 14.32Mt @ 4.89g/t PGM, 0.31g/t Au, 0.27% Ni (refer ASX announcement dated 7 July 2021). The Panton mineralisation occurs within a layered, differentiated mafic-ultramafic intrusion referred to as the Panton intrusive which is a 10km long and 3km wide, south-west plunging synclinal intrusion. PGM mineralisation is hosted within two stratiform chromite reefs, the Top and Middle reefs, within the ultramafic sequence.

About Platinum Group Metals (PGMs)

PGMs are a group of six precious metals being Platinum (Pt), palladium (Pd), iridium (Ir), osmium (Os), rhodium (Rh), and ruthenium (Ru). Exceptionally rare, they have similar physical and chemical properties and tend to occur, in varying proportions, together in the same geological deposit. The usefulness of PGMs is determined by their unique and specific shared chemical and physical properties. PGMs have many desirable properties and as such have a wide variety of applications. Most notably, they are used as auto-catalysts (pollution control devices for vehicles), but are also used in jewellery, electronics, hydrogen production / purification and in hydrogen fuel cells. The unique properties of PGMs help convert harmful exhaust pollutant emissions to harmless compounds, improving air quality and thereby enhancing health and wellbeing.
