About Us

Anson is at the forefront of the exploration and development of natural resources to power a clean energy future

Anson Resources Limited (ASX: ASN) is an Australian-based exploration and development company focused on the exploration and development of the Paradox Lithium Project in the Paradox Basin in southern Utah into a significant lithium producing operation, to provide high-quality lithium carbonate for the massive global EV battery market. It also seeks to deliver further value from the Project via the extraction of large quantities of high-value bromine.
The Company has also expanded its footprint in the region via the staking of the Green River Lithium Project, which exhibits key geological similarities with the Paradox Project. Anson plans to expedite exploration and development at Green River to expand its Mineral Resource base in the Paradox Basin, to support an increased production profile at its planned lithium producing operation.

Anson also has a diverse portfolio of quality exploration assets. These include the Yellow Cat Uranium Project in Utah, which is also highly prospective for vanadium, and three base and critical metals exploration projects covering 458km² in the highly prospective Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia. These include the Bull Project, located adjacent to Chalice Mining Limited’s (ASX: CHN) world-class Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project.
