Lefroy Exploration Limited has initiated resource expansion drilling at the Mt Martin Gold Mine, marking the first exploration at the site in over a decade. The drilling, comprising 37 RC holes within freehold property Location 45, aims to expand the existing Mineral Resource Estimate, which currently stands at over 501,000 ounces of gold.
Previous drilling results, such as 12m at 6.65 g/t gold from 318m, suggest the potential for additional high-grade gold zones beyond the current mine pit. The drilling is set to conclude in mid-December, with initial gold assay results expected later in the month. Lefroy Exploration’s main focus is exploring early commercialization options for the Mt Martin Gold Mine.
