Cassini is a base and precious metals developer and explorer based in Perth, Western Australia. Cassini is progressing the West Musgrave Project with JV partner OZ Minerals Ltd (ASX:OZL). It is a world-class sulphide project hosting 3 deposits with a combined >1.0Mt of contained nickel and 2Mt of contained copper. There are also numerous other exploration targets within the Project area. Recent Scoping Study outcomes confirm a long life, low cost, large scale, open pit mining operation, with development timing positioning the Project well to meet a growing nickel-copper demand from EV and battery markets.
Cassini is also progressing early stage exploration projects in Western Australia in gold, zinc and nickel/copper /cobalt.

What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?
External commodity price risk which has been mitigated by JV partnership on primary project.
Funding CZI share of WMP capex. We have commenced discussions around this and are exploring a range of traditional and innovative options
In a sentence, what do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?
The WMP is one of a few new nickel and copper sulphide projects globally that can meet the forecast increased demand for battery metals.
CZI has a free financial carry to a decision to mine on the Project.
There is a significant gap between the market cap of CZI and the value of 30% of the WMP that will reduce as we get closer to delivery of the PFS and provide visibility on funding.
