Legend Mining Hits Further Nickel Copper Sulphides at Mawson

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) delivered further encouraging news from drilling underway at the Mawson massive-sulphide-nickel deposit within the company’s Rockford project in Western Australia.

Legend Mining reported that continued drilling of hole RKDD021 has intersected a total of 24.65 metres of nickel-copper sulphides across two intervals:

9.3m of heavy disseminated to net-textured sulphide from 132.2m to 141.5m downhole; and

15.35m of net-textured, heavy disseminated and semi-massive sulphide from 219.1m to 234.45m downhole.

“The observations from this step out hole are an exciting development in the Mawson story,” Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“Geologically we have now intersected significant mineralisation several hundred metres to the east north-east of our previous discovery and our geophysical advice is that we probably have not hit the best part of this conductor.

“Our proven systematic methodology of DHTEM and structural logging of this hole on completion will provide the data for the design of the next diamond holes in this immediate vicinity.

“Meanwhile the diamond, RC and aircore programs are ongoing at Mawson and regionally within the Rockford project.”
