Legend Mining latest drill results at Worsley build case for VMS deposit

The results reveal zinc, silver, nickel and cobalt and enhance the prospectively of Worsley and its ability to host VMS-style mineralisation.

Legend Mining Ltd (ASX:LEG) has received assay results from 12 infill aircore drill holes at the Worsley Prospect within the Rockford Project in Western Australia.

Results feature 28 metres at 0.17% zinc and 1.37 g/t silver from 40 metres including 4 metres at 0.71% zinc, 1.71 g/t silver, 0.11% nickel and 0.09% cobalt.

The drilling was following up anomalous geochemistry in previous nearby holes and aircore drilling has now defined anomalous geochemistry at both Worsley and the nearby Crean prospect.

Legend’s managing director Mark Wilson said: “These results have elevated Worsley to Legend’s best VMS prospect at our Rockford project.

“Independence Group have previously highlighted the VMS potential in the region with their Andromeda discovery in July 2018.

“The mineralised footprint we have identified is in the vicinity of the top of the modelled conductor which is a further positive feature.

“We will need to do more of our innovative EM surveys to better model the conductor as the current 500-metre line spaced work is insufficient to properly design diamond drill testing.

“This EM work will be commissioned as a priority and will be done in conjunction with the EM work required at the nearby Crean prospect.”

Proactive caught up with the company early May 2019 to discuss the Worsley and Crean prospects.

Last month, Legend received results from the first 27 aircore holes drilled at Area D, an area northeast of Worsley and Crean but also within the Rockford Project.

Highlights included 12 metres at 0.09% nickel, 0.18% copper, 0.02% cobalt from 64 metres and  8 metres at 0.15% nickel, 0.18% copper, 0.02% cobalt from 44 metres.
