Artemis is a Perth-based resources company with a focus on gold and copper. Its two main projects, based in West Australia, include the gold-copper-cobalt project in the West Pilbara and the Paterson Central Project in the East Pilbara. Recently, gold and copper were found near its Paterson Central Project. The company also has the only processing plant in the region near Karratha, which considerably decreases the money and lead time needed to mine at Carlow Castle.
