The two diamond holes will test two significant bedrock conductors (D1 and D5), targeting magmatic nickel-copper sulphides similar to the Nova and Silver Knight deposits.
Legend’s managing director Mr Mark Wilson said: “We are very pleased to be back diamond drilling at Rockford after a period of extensive preparatory field and desktop activities.
“The rig has been booked for 21 October and barring any unforeseen delays drilling should commence that week with the first hole into the D5 target.
“The prospectivity of this conductor is upgraded by geology, geochemistry and the earlier petrology report from RKDD002.”
Conductors remodelled using additional survey data
Geophysical modelling of LF-MLTEM data from the recently completed Area D survey over the previously identified D5 conductor has now been finalised.
The survey was successful in better constraining the original D5 conductor, plus also highlighting
a second very strong discrete feature associated within the previously defined D1 conductor.
