Welcome to PlatSearch
PlatSearch is an Australian resource company focused on exploring and developing mineral deposits. The Company was incorporated in 1987 and over the last two decades has successfully explored or joint ventured numerous exploration properties in the search for base metal, gold, nickel uranium, iron and mineral sand deposits. The Company has accumulated a strong portfolio of high quality exploration properties and maintains strong technical abilities in exploration management, geology and geophysics as well as listed company management and Initial Public Offerings (IPO).
Over the last few years PlatSearch has diversified from pure exploration joint ventures to vending its projects into small junior explorers in return for equity, or placing these assets into PlatSearch controlled companies to take through to listing on to the ASX. This approach has allowed PlatSearch to build a strong portfolio of investments in a number of ASX-listed entities including WPG Resources Ltd and Eastern Iron Limited whilst allowing the Company freedom to generate new exploration opportunities and continue project assessments. Recent capital returns from these investments have been very strong resulting in the Company securing a robust cash position. Please see the Investments section of this website for further details.
In addition to its exploration work and grass-roots project generation, PlatSearch has now significantly expanded its project search to include more advanced opportunities as it seeks to increase the likelihood of discoveries that will accelerate its goal of achieving a long term cash flow.
Following detailed assessment studies the Company has recently formed a wholly owned EU subsidiary, opened an office in Orleans, France and put together a highly experienced European team to secure high quality projects within Europe and North Africa. The Company has also commenced project acquisition activities within other regions such as South America.
