Legend Mining (LEG) has completed a combination of innovative moving and fixed loop electromagnetic (MLTEM & FLTEM) surveys at its Rockford Project.

The company tested seven prospect areas — Northeast Mawson, Mawson Central, Worsley, Crean, Hurley, Magnus and Octagonal.

The surveys were completed over a range of target types, which included aeromagnetic and gravity features, previous electromagnetic survey conductors and anomalous geochemistry from previous aircore drilling

A total of nine conductors were identified or better defined by the surveys.

At the Northeast Mawson prospect, fixed loop (FLTEM) surveys confirmed diamond drill targets at conductors D13 and D14.

At Worsley prospect, Legend said conductor W1 is now ready for diamond drilling. However, Crean and new prospect, Hurley, still requires final air-core drilling and infill surveys.

Managing Director Mark Wilson says the surveys were commenced late last year and is part of the exploration program at Rockford Project in Western Australia.

“The completion of the infill work at Crean and Hurley is expected to be in four to six weeks. Once this is finalised, we can plan a Rockford south drill program comprising Worsley, Shackleton and probably Crean and Hurley, dependent upon infill EM and aircore results,” he said.

“We plan on extending the current Mawson diamond drill program to include conductors D13 and D15 once commitments in the main Mawson prospect are completed,” he added.

On the market today, Legend remains unchanged and trading for 16 cents at 12:17 pm AEST.
