Welcome to Lodestar Minerals Limited
Lodestar Minerals Limited is an active West Australian exploration company focused on the discovery of copper and gold to deliver shareholder value.
Lodestar’s projects are located in a major, under-explored mineralised province within Western Australia that spans the northern margin of the Archaean Yilgarn Craton - the Capricorn Orogen. The Ned’s Creek project, located adjacent to Sandfire Resource’s DeGrussa copper-gold deposit and the Enigma copper prospect, forms the core of the Company’s portfolio. The Camel Hills and Imbin projects cover areas of historic gold and copper exploration activity on the same tectonic margin that is prospective for volcanic-hosted massive sulphide, sediment-hosted copper and orogenic gold deposits. Large surface gold anomalies have been identified at Camel Hills and copper sulphide mineralisation has been reported from historic drilling at Imbin. Lodestar holds a strategic land position across the Capricorn Orogen, with over 3000 square kilometres of tenure.
The Capricorn Orogen represents a continental collision zone between the Pilbara and Yilgarn Cratons characterised by deep crustal structures, such as the Jenkin Fault, magmatic activity and the development of extensive volcanosedimentary basins. These features are commonly associated with the formation of major hydrothermal systems and ore deposits. The discovery of DeGrussa demonstrated the potential of this margin to host valuable, high-grade copper-gold deposits.
Lodestar’s regional exploration and project generation activities indicate excellent geological criteria exist for both base metal and gold mineralisation.
