THE DRILL SERGEANT: Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) reported a healthy intersection from drilling at the Mawson prospect within the company’s Rockford project in the Fraser Range of Western Australia.
Legend Mining reported the intersection, another from diamond drillhole RKDD023, which was designed to test a strong conductor at the Mawson prospect.
Assaying has shown RKDD023 intersected a plus-90 metres mineralised zone of nickel-copper sulphide, including: 12.95m massive sulphide; 7.55m semi-massive sulphide; and multiple zones of net-textured, matrix, and heavy disseminated sulphide.
“The discovery of another 12.95 metres of massive nickel-copper sulphide in diamond drillhole 23, circa 200 metres from the previously announced massive sulphides, is a quantum boost for the potential of the Mawson prospect,” Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The nature of the mineralisation suggests we are closer to the intrusive source but we are not there yet.
“Downhole EM from this hole, which is now underway, is designed to provide data to assist in planning future diamond holes in this immediate vicinity.
“Importantly, the RC drilling confirms the Mawson intrusive complex extends north and east of the known Mawson nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation, confirming the prospectivity for mineralised intrusives below the eastern aircore geochemical anomaly.
“The RC holes are also a great platform for downhole EM.”
