In June 2019, SER and FMG Resources Pty Ltd executed a Farm-In and Joint Venture Agreement to explore SER’s Myall Creek Copper-Gold project in South Australia. FMG Resources Pty Ltd is a subsidiary of Fortescue Metals Group Limited (ASX:FMG; market capitalisation > AUD$20B).

Under the Agreement, FMG will spend $1.5m on exploration, including a minimum of 1500m drilling, at Myall Creek to earn an 80% interest in the project.

FMG will manage exploration, satisfy all expenditure requirements and keep the tenements in good standing. After FMG have earned-in, a joint venture will be formed under which each party will contribute pro-rata (FMG 80%, SER 20%) to further exploration and development or be diluted in accordance with industry standard formula.
