THE DRILL SERGEANT: Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) recently completed a downhole electromagnetic (DHTEM) survey at the Mawson prospect within the company’s Rockford project in the Fraser Range of Western Australia.
Legend Mining reported the DHTEM survey, carried out on drillhole RKDD021, identified a very strong (25,000-30,000S) off-hole conductor.
Legend explained the position and orientation of the conductor fits with the company’s structural analysis of the interpreted extension orientation of the main Mawson mineralisation.
Diamond drilling of the new off-hole conductor will commence on the completion of the current diamond hole that is planned to a depth of 300m downhole.
Structural analysis of RKDD021 has been completed, with the drill core now scheduled for sampling and assaying.
“The new off-hole conductor from hole 21 is modelled as double the strength of the conductor which hole 21 was designed to test,” Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The geological interpretation that this conductor is the extension of the 15.35 metres interval of significant sulphides in hole 21 coupled with its strength, point to some exciting days ahead.
“The diamond hole to test this conductor will be the next hole drilled once the rig completes the diamond tail on RC hole 15.”
