Legend Mining Limited (ASX: LEG) has intersected two zones of significant nickel-copper sulphides in a new hole at the Mawson prospect within the Rockford Project in Fraser Range of Western Australia.
RKDD011, one of three new holes drilled at Mawson, intersected an upper interval – 15m of vein, breccia, disseminated, semi-massive Ni-Cu sulphides from 129.25m-144.25m and three massive Ni-Cu sulphide intercepts totalling 12.4m within 21.6m from 217.5-239.1m in the lower interval.
Managing Director. Mark Wilson, said RKDD011 was designed to test a strong 50,000-60,000S DHTEM conductor identified from surveying in RKDD010 and also test for extensions to the sulphide mineralisation intersected in adjacent drillholes RKDD007 and RKDD008.
“We have drilled three further holes since we first reported to market on hole 8 on 31 March 2020, holes 9, 10 and 11. Hole 11, which was drilled 20m north of hole 8, has hit 12.4m of massive nickel-copper sulphides within a 21.6m mineralised intercept and is an outstanding result,” Mr Wilson said.
“The process we will follow is as per hole 8, with structural logging before the samples are sent for assay and downhole EM happening as we speak. The assay results should be available in 3-4 weeks and are eagerly awaited. Our expectation is they will be every bit as good as those reported on 21 April 2020 from hole 8.
“Meanwhile the rig has moved onto hole 12 and we have several further holes ready to go prior to our analysis of the hole 11 data providing the next step out drill target.”
The three additional three diamond drillholes (RKDD009-011) totalling 1,195.1m have been completed at Mawson, with downhole electromagnetic (DHTEM) surveying completed in holes RKDD009-010.
The drillholes were testing a combination of geophysical and geochemical targets, with RKDD011 intersecting an upper interval of 15m containing vein, breccia, disseminated and semi-massive sulphide, and a lower 21.6m interval containing three significant massive nickel-copper sulphide intercepts from 217.5m downhole.
Legend’s future activities at Mawson include:
- Detailed structural logging of RKDD009-011 by Jon Standing prior to cutting and sampling of RKDD011.
- Completion of RKDD011 DHTEM survey followed by interpretation of data.
- Integration of geological and geophysical data from diamond drillholes RKDD009-011 into the Mawson 3D geological model.
- Diamond drilling continuing with the collaring of RKDD012 testing geological and DHTEM geophysical targets.
- Continued infill aircore drill programme across the greater Mawson area
