Legend said the regional drill program will comprise 80 holes for ~5,000m and focus on eight features selected from detailed aeromagnetic/gravity datasets and EM surveys.

“The aim of the drilling is to provide information on the regolith profile, basement lithologies and the lithogeochemical signature of the basement rocks,” Legend Mining told the ASX.

“The programme is estimated to take 3-4 weeks to complete with assay results expected 3-4 weeks later.”

According to the company, the geological and assay results from the aircore drilling, in conjunction with the current moving loop electromagnetic surveys are expected to generate the next iteration of RC/diamond drill targets.
