The Junction Reefs gold bearing deposit is situated on the Lyndhurst Mining Field in mid-west New South Wales.

The district is well developed, having been settled for more than a cen- tury. However, being close to the Cities of Orange and Bathurst it is real- lised, instantly, that mining leases have been pegged, in this area, almost boundary to boundary. The lease patterns are, with few exceptions, those which had been estab- lished more than seventy-five years ago.
