Welcome to Meritus Minerals
Meritus Minerals Ltd., listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (Venture Board) (stock symbol: MER), is in the business of acquiring, exploring and developing mineral resource properties with a commodity focus on gold and base-metals.
Our philosophy is to acquire licenses over favorable exploration ground, in which through our subsidiaries we will own 100% or majority interest, and to seek joint venture participation in these areas once targets have been established by our own efforts.
Meritus is also seeking opportunities to participate in more advanced projects, particularly worthwhile drill programs where other parties needing finance have established attractive gold and / or base-metal targets.
The company is focusing on projects in Mongolia, has interests in Australia, and is reviewing opportunities in South East Asia.
