Our 100% owned Lauriston Project lies in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields, from approximately 30 kilometres south of Bendigo stretching to the northern end of Lerderderg State Park. Our Lauriston Project lies in the Bendigo zone of the Lachlan Fold Belt and covers the south extension of the Whitelaw and Tandarra Faults, which are significant features in the Goldfields, and home to many known gold deposits and historical workings.
