Lefroy is a Perth-based gold explorer focused on greenfields exploration in Western Australia and targeting multi-million ounce gold discoveries.
The company’s flagship project is the Lefroy Gold Project located 60km South of Kalgoorlie. The company’s projects are considered highly prospective for major gold discoveries and lie in a historically under-explored area within a highly prospective geological location near Kalgoorlie.
Lefroy has a major exploration partner in South Africa-based Gold Fields, which has seven operating mines in Australia, Ghana, Peru and South Africa and brings expertise, equipment and an adjacent processing plant at their neighbouring St Ives project.
The Eastern Lefroy Gold Project is LEX’s flagship project where the Company has secured a commanding 226km2 land package that comes within 50km of Kalgoorlie. The Project is located in the well-endowed Kalgoorlie Terrane and bracketed by the regional gold mineralised Boulder Lefroy and Mount Monger Faults. Nearby operating gold mines nearby include Goldfields St Ives gold camp, Daisy Milano, and importantly the Salt Creek gold plant operated by Silver Lake Resources (ASX: SLR). The presence of multiple operating mills nearby could allow for any smaller discoveries to be quickly and cheaply commercialised.
