High grade gold production and exploration

Kaiser Reef is a high grade gold producer and exploration company with a clear focus on gold within the Lachlan Fold Belt. This spans across the border through NSW and into Victoria and has been a major gold producing region for Australia since the mid 1800’s.


The company was listed on the ASX on February 26th 2020 and has acquired the operating A1 Gold Mine in Victoria and accompanying processing plant at Maldon. The processing plant treats A1 ore and is located at Maldon. The Maldon goldfield was a large historic producer (+1.7 million ounces of gold) and Kaiser intends to intensively explore this project with the intent to recommence mining.


In addition to the Victorian production assets the company also holds exploration tenements in New South Wales.


Kaiser Reef owns 100% interest in all of its assets.
