Who was Lasseter?

The establishment takes its name from Lewis Hubert Lasseter. He was an explorer who was made famous by his sensational claim in 1929, that he had discovered a fabulously rich gold reef, now known as “Lasseter‘s Reef”, in central Australia. The reef has never been discovered and Lasseter himself died in the West Australian desert in early 1931 after he separated himself from an expedition that was mounted to try and find the supposed reef. Lasseter is buried in the Alice Springs cemetery.
