THE DRILL SERGEANT: Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) announced further assay results from aircore drilling carried out at the Mawson target at the company’s Rockford project in the Fraser Range of Western Australia.
Legend Mining received results from an additional 37 holes, six of which returned broad intervals with anomalous nickel and copper values associated with mafic/ultramafic intrusives.
New assay results from infill aircore drilling within the eastern geochemical nickel-copper footprint, east and northeast of the Mawson massive sulphide discovery include:
38 metres at 0.2 per cent nickel, 0.05 per cent copper, 0.03 per cent cobalt from 72m to EOH; and
43m at 0.12 per cent nickel, 0.02 per cent copper, 0.02 per cent cobalt from 64m to EOH.
“These results are from the ongoing infill aircore program at Mawson and have extended and strengthened the eastern geochemical footprint,” Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“This footprint is a compelling target for RC/Diamond drilling which is already underway.”
