Exploration remains at the heart of Sandfire’s long-term Growth strategy.


Sandfire maintains a systematic, multi-pronged exploration program across its large landholdings globally and we are increasing our exploration effort in FY2022.

Regional Summary


Sandfire’s Australian exploration initiatives target some of Australia’s premier exploration provinces. Current exploration activities are primarily focused in the Doolgunna-Bryah Basin region of Western Australia and Cobar  and Macquarie Arc regions of New South Wales.

Botswana and Namibia

Sandfire holds a significant landholding that extends over most of the central and western portions of the Kalahari Copper Belt in Botswana and Namibia.

The Kalahari Copper Belt is one of the world’s most exciting emerging copper producing regions, hosting both Sandfire’s Motheo Project and Khoemacau Copper Mining’s Zone 5 underground mine. Sandfire’s Kalahari landholding is prospective for sedimentary-style copper deposits and includes several high-priority targets located in close proximity to the advanced Motheo Copper Mine development project, as well as regional targets with confirmed copper mineralisation.

Spain and Portugal

Sandfire’s MATSA Operations are located in the world-class Iberian Pyrite Belt of Spain. The Company’s surrounding exploration package comprises a 2,450km2 tenement holding extending across Spain and Portugal, and offers Sandfire substantial long-term exploration upside and organic growth potential.
