The West Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) has handed out its Exploration Incentive Scheme’s (EIS) Co-funded Exploration Drilling Programme grants, with $5.23 million spread among 45 applicants.

Applicants have from July 1 2020 to June 30 2021 to undertake work using EIS funds.

The applicants’ 49 projects stretch from the Kimberley and Pilbara in the north, through to the Mid-West, Goldfields and the South-West regions, with  almost one third of the successful general category applicants in the field for commodities related to battery minerals, including one vanadium project and two rare earth element projects.
