Legend Mining (LEG) reports drilling results from its Rockford project have intersected prospective host rocks.

The business has been carrying out exploration work at the nickel-copper-gold-zinc-silver asset, which is located in WA’s Fraser Ranges.

Among the work completed to date is five diamond drill holes, more than 200 aircore drill holes as well as a moving loop electromagnetic survey (MLTEM).

Legend said the diamond drilling at the Crean, Hurley, and Northerly prospects intersected prospective host rocks, with additional assay results pending.

Along with the prospective host rocks, LEG says the MLTEM survey at the newly discovered Northerly prospect also identified a large shallow conductor.

Managing Director Mark Wilson said it was a pleasing discovery, with further results pending.

“The early success from the new Northerly prospect is particularly pleasing with anomalous geochemistry indications from aircore, sulphides in intrusive host rocks observed in diamond drill core and a large shallow conductor from the MLTEM survey,” he said.

“The significance of all of these programs will be better understood once all assays and analysis of the results are collated.”

Aircore drilling continues at Rockford as the company aims to define prospective mafic/ultramafic intrusive bodies which host nickel-copper mineralisation.

Legend Mining shares were down 3.08 per cent at 6.3 cents each at 12:58 pm AEDT.
