Legacy Iron Ore (ASX:LCY) has been granted mining lease M39/1145 by the Western Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) for the Mount Celia Gold Project.

The company said the Project is based 95km south of Laverton in Western Australia and comprises the Kangaroo Bore and Blue Peter deposits.

It also said the granting of the lease follows the signing of a Native Title Agreement with the Nyalpa Pirniku people.
