Let’s take a closer look at today’s news from the miner.
Massive nickel-copper sulphide intercepts
According to Legend Mining’s release, the company has intercepted a wide sulphide zone at its flagship Mawson Ni-Cu-Co prospect in Western Australia.
Results from the 2 drill holes have been described by the company as “massive nickel-copper sulphide intercepts”. The results came from a drilling program made up of 4 holes, conducted at the site over the second half of April.
Of the 2 intercepts, 1 was east-south-east of the Mawson discovery zone. It included:
- 45 metres of semi-massive and massive sulphide, and
- 4 metres of net-textured and semi-massive sulphide.
The other was in the northeast of the discovery zone. It included:
- 15 metres of massive sulphide, and
- 75 metres of net-textured and semi-massive sulphide.
Commentary from management
Commenting on the discoveries, Legend Mining managing director Mark Wilson said:
The success of this year’s diamond drill program has ramped up with two new intercepts of massive nickel copper sulphide within broad bands of sulphide mineralisation.
The distance between these holes and the discovery zone, along with the developing story from downhole EM surveys, continue to demonstrate a very large system driving Mawson, which is consistent with the potential of a significant deposit.
