anaging Director of Chalice Gold Mines, Alex Dorsch recently requested an opportunity to introduce Chalice and provide an update on the company’s Julimar Project to the Shire’s CEO. By way of introduction, the following information was provided;

Chalice is a successful WA based exploration company founded in 2006, and is majority owned by Australian investors. The Company has a long track record of highly effective and responsible mineral exploration across Australia. Exploration drilling by Chalice commenced at the Julimar Project in March 2020 and has confirmed an exciting new nickel-copper-platinum group element (PGE) discovery approximately 22km from the town of Toodyay.

All exploration activities to date have taken place on private land within granted exploration licences, with the key purpose being to determine if the Julimar Project hosts an economic deposit of minerals. It is important to note that there are a number of successive stages to complete before mining can be considered, and Chalice anticipates this could take several years.

Whilst the project is still within the early stages of exploration, the discovery is a significant development for both the Company and WA’s critical mineral  resources given the importance of nickel, copper and platinum group elements for battery, energy storage and fuel cell applications in the future. The proximity of Julimar to Toodyay and other towns also has the potential to provide a significant positive economic impact on the local economies and workforce.

At a meeting held at the Shire office, Mr Dorsch confirmed that the project is in the early stages of exploration, however Chalice is  committed to establishing good relations with the local community and ensuring accurate project information is available. To this end, the company has appointed Community Liaison Manager Derek Gardner who is now living in Toodyay, to be the local representative on the ground.

“Derek is our focal point for the community and can answer key queries on exploration licences, land access  and the  exploration  activities planned as we  gain a better understanding of the Julimar Project ,” said Mr Dorsch.

Further information and fact sheets can be found at Derek can be contacted via email  on or enquiries  may  be directed to the Chalice office on (08) 9322 3960 or
