Legacy Iron Ore progresses Phase 3 drilling at Mt Bevan iron ore project

Previous drilling resulted in a JORC compliant inferred resource of 2.26 billion tonnes of magnetite mineralisation grading 27.6% Fe or 1.59 billion tonnes of magnetite mineralisation grading 30.2% Fe.

The Phase 3 drilling program comprised 6,280 metres of reverse circulation and 2,231 metres of diamond drilling designed to convert a substantial portion of the current inferred resource to indicated status and provide material for metallurgical test work.

The diamond drilling comprised 7 drill holes collared with one on each infill drilling line.

Legacy Iron has deferred the finalisation of the Phase 3 program including independent modelling and indicated resource calculation pending discussion with joint venture partner Hawthorn Resources.
