14 Mile Well Project

Iceni Gold Limited is a Perth based exploration company that operates the 14 Mile Well Gold Project in the Laverton Greenstone Belt. The ~900km2 14 Mile Well tenement package is situated on the western shores of Lake Carey, ~50km from Laverton in Western Australia. Iceni is searching for the three styles of gold mineralisation that are known to exist within the Laverton-Leonora District, as well as nickel and lithium:

  • Intrusion Related Gold (IRG)
    • Strong association between gold and syenite intrusions within the Laverton-Leonora District.
    • Analogous to the Wallaby, Jupiter and Cameron Well gold deposits.
  • Orogenic Lode Gold
    • Related to deep tapping structures and their associated second/third order splays.
    • Significant gold deposits in the district include Granny Smith, Sunrise Dam and Mt Morgans.
  • Volcanogenic Massive Sulphides (VMS)
    • Related to geothermal vents on the ancient sea floor.
    • Favourable geological environment, with VMS deposits known in the district, for example Teutonic Bore, Anaconda and Jaguar.
  • Nickel
    • Related to ultramafic volcanics and intrusions.
    • Three significant nickel projects are within a 50km radius, being Murrin Murrin, Kilkenny/Eucalyptus and Windarra.
  • Lithium
    • Related to pegmatites and felsic intrusions into mafic-ultramafic sequences.
    • Pegmatites intruding mafic-ultramafic sequences have been mapped by the GSWA in the district.
