Legend Mining Limited (ASX: LEG) has received further positive news from recent aircore drillholes at the Mawson prospect within the Rockford Project, Fraser Range, Western Australia.
Managing Director, Mark Wilson, said results from s second batch of 18 holes have been received with eight returning anomalous nickel and copper values associated with mafic/ultramafic intrusives.
The developing geochemical footprint of anomalous nickel-copper assays at Mawson is seen as an important indicator of the possible source of the massive sulphides we have discovered recently,” Mr Wilson said.
“The aircore drilling programme in this area is ongoing, and once complete, we will have a clearer picture of the detail of this footprint.”
Legend believe the results from the latest batch of assays, along with previous results are beginning to outline a large NE-SW trending coherent geochemical anomaly situated to the east of the main Mawson sulphide mineralisation.
The position of this geochemical feature coincides with the centre of an oval shaped magnetic feature and a 4mgal gravity high.
Further infill aircore drilling is currently underway aimed at defining the extent of the anomalism.
A detailed (50mx50m and 100mx100m) gravity survey over the main Mawson gravity high is in progress and will be used in conjunction with the aircore data to assist future drill targeting.
Future Mawson exploration activity plans include:
- Continuation of infill aircore drill programme across the greater Mawson area.
- Completion of detailed gravity survey over the main Mawson gravity high.
- Integration of aircore and detailed gravity data to assist RC/diamond drillhole planning/design.
- Continuation of diamond drilling programme targeting extensions to the Ni-Cu mineralisation.
