THE DRILL SERGEANT: Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) reported assay results for diamond drilling carried out on the Mawson nickel-copper-cobalt prospect within the company’s Rockford project in the Fraser Range of Western Australia.
Legend Mining said the assay results it has received from RKDD043/044/046 are in line with the visual estimations it made when drilling was completed.
Semi-massive and massive sulphide assay results in RKDD043 of:
3 metres at 1.04 per cent nickel, 0.61 per cent copper, 0.09 per cent cobalt from 181m; and
Massive and semi-massive sulphide assay results in RKDD044 of:
1.7m at 1.48 per cent nickel, 1.12 per cent copper, 0.1 per cent cobalt from 456.4m.
The company indicated multi-element data received as part of the assay suite will continue to provide critical data to existing datasets to further evolve the understanding of the chonolith driving the mineralisation at Mawson.
“The assays reported…are broadly in line with our expectations from visual observations of the core at site,” Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“The key point is the distance between massive sulphide occurrences and the broader mineralised intercepts give us the geological confidence of a fertile mineralised system of significant scale.”
The company is also waiting on down hole EM surveying and/or modelling results to follow up already received DHEM that demonstrated large offhole features that will require further modelling to constrain features.
“Both the drilling and downhole EM results have continued the evolvement of our geological understanding of the Mawson intrusion,” Wilson said.
“This is the objective of the current stage of our systematic ongoing exploration strategy at this prospect.”
