Western Australia Bolsters Nickel Exploration With Funding Package

The Western Australian Government is set to release $4.93 million of funding for nickel and gold exploration in the Eastern Goldfields.

The funds will be channelled via the Western Australia’s Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS) co-funded drilling program to 41 successful projects.

A third of the applicants are searching for battery commodities, dominated by nickel or nickel-cobalt exploration. Others are looking for vanadium and lithium.
