Company Profile

White Tiger Resources Limited (WTR) is an Australian-based junior mineral exploration company focused on selective tenement procurement through innovative technical assessment, detailed investigation planning and careful exploration of high-grade IOCGU deposits initially in the world-renowned South Australian region known as the Gawler Craton.

We intend to:

Identify and procure exploration tenements with potential for the existence and discovery of economic mineral deposits

Create value by improving confidence in the presence of mineralisation, directly or through strategic alliances

Enable exit strategies for shareholders by divesting individual tenements of value to developers or producers

Retain an interest in projects post divestment where appropriate
