About Us

Boab Metals Limited (previously known as Pacifico Minerals Limited), was incorporated in 2003 and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) on the 15th July 2004.

At the time, Pacifico had mining exploration interests in both South America and Western Australia with the company headquartered in Perth, Western Australia.

Recognising a need to establish itself locally and focus on developing their recently acquired Sorby Hills project, Pacifico changed its name to Boab Metals Limited on the 23rd December 2020 with new ASX code BML.
