The nearby Andromeda discovery highlights the Fraser Range's potential

Legend Mining Ltd (ASX:LEG) has identified a new prospective exploration trend in the southern region of its Rockford Project in the Fraser Range of Western Australia.

The new prospect comes as a result of Independence Group Ltd (ASX:IGO) making a recent discovery at the nearby Andromeda copper-zinc project.

IGO drilled 29.9 metres at 1.36% copper, 2.51% zinc, 19.9 g/t silver, 0.35 g/t gold from 548.1 metres at the discovery.

Seven kilometres from Rockford Project boundary

Legend’s managing director Mark Wilson said: “IGO highlighted the thick massive sulphide intersections at the Andromeda project in the release to the ASX on 26 July in the Fraser Range exploration summary.

“Andromeda is only 7 kilometres from Legend’s southern tenement boundary.

“This should be regarded as a complimentary additional item to the Rockford Project inventory and not a distraction from our primary focus of nickel-copper-cobalt discovery.”

Legend’s tenure contains 24 kilometres of same host stratigraphy as IGO’s Andromeda project.

Legend is designing an exploration program to test this prospective trend comprising a combination of aircore drilling and innovative high power electromagnetics.

The program is scheduled to commence in September following receipt of all necessary statutory approvals.
