What does Lefroy do?
Lefroy is a Perth based miner that is focused on greenfields exploration in Western Australia. Greenfields exploration simply means that the company relies on the predictive power of models to find deposits in previously unexplored areas.
The company’s flagship product is the Lefroy gold project near Kalgoorlie. It is aiming to target “multi-million-ounce gold discoveries”.
Today, shares in Lefroy are soaring as the company announced high-grade copper and gold mineralisation results at Burns.
Results were received for an initial ten holes in the program totalling 4026m at the Burns Au-Cu prospect. A single traverse, containing two holes intersected particularly remarkable results. Consequently, the results contained:
- 60m at 5.22g/t Au and 0.38% Cu from 112m down-hole to end of the hole, including:
- 20m at 12.2g/t Au, 0.87% Cu and 1.7g/t Ag from 144m
Chairman, Gordon Galt, welcomed the news saying:
The intersection in LEFR260 is outstanding by any measure and is quite exciting. LEX will follow up as soon as possible. We will need to look north, south, east and deeper from this discovery hole to establish the structure/s which have delivered this intersection. The next phase of drilling is being scheduled now and will include immediate diamond drilling to extend and support the mineralisation discovered in LEFR260.
