Perth-based Lefroy Exploration could have an additional suite of broad gold anomalies on its books after receiving encouraging assay results from its maiden 136-hole, 4056 metre geochemical based aircore drilling program at its Coogee South prospect, part of the Eastern Lefroy project east of Kalgoorlie in WA.
Lefroy has christened its two new gold anomalies; “Catalina” and “Bronte”. The Catalina anomaly sits immediately south of Lefroy’s tenement boundary and extends across 800m in strike. The company says Catalina exhibits both gold and copper anomalism and it interprets its strongest anomalism to be associated with the potential continuation of the flat dipping Coogee structure.
Additionally, the Bronte gold anomaly is about 400m in strike and exhibits no copper anomalism. Lefroy says that recent drill results suggest Bronte is open to the south. The company says multiple holes from its most recent campaign ended in anomalous gold mineralisation near the top of the fresh rock.
The recent discovery follows a busy few days for the company after it looks to have found a significant intrusion-related mineralised system at its Burns copper-gold prospect near Kalgoorlie. Lefroy’s two new anomolies are a good start and it seems that Lefroy has plenty of smoke to follow up.
