Following its ASX listing less than a month ago, Legacy Minerals (ASX: LGM) has verified more gold at its Harden project in New South Wales’ Lachlan Fold Belt.
Legacy has received further assays from three holes completed at the Harden gold mine prospect.
Better results were 8m at 2.45 grams per tonne gold from 77m, including 3m at 4.62g/t gold from 79m; and 9m at 0.56g/t gold from 120m, and 4m at 0.51g/t gold from 133m.
The 8m at 2.45g/t gold intersection is 50m up-dip of a previous hole, which hit 5m at 7.81g/t gold from 110m, including 2m at 19.09g/t gold.
Legacy managing director Christopher Byrne said the Harden gold mine prospect has continued to deliver “exceptional” results for the company.
“The grades, strike and widths seen in the recently completed drill holes greatly expand the knowledge of the mineralisation.”
“It is exciting to see the extent of the mineralisation through these broad zones, which expands both the scale and potential for the system.”
Legacy is still expecting assays for six holes drilled at Harden.
“To-date, the Legacy exploration team has completed 1,546m of drilling at Harden and has budgeted for over 5,000m across the project,” Mr Byrne noted.
“This gives the company significant room to expand on the discovery.”
Mr Byrne said the company was now planning the next drilling program for the project.
The upcoming round of drilling is expected to begin after all assays have been received along with completion of a campaign at the Bauloora mine prospect.
Legacy debuted on the ASX mid-last month after raising $5.8 million in its IPO.
The company listed with drilling already underway at Harden.
Mr Byrne said the company was well funded to advance its “exciting portfolio” that contains “numerous opportunities for discovery”.
Legacy wholly-owns five projects in the Lachlan Fold Belt.
Harden is the most advanced of the projects with a recent dipole-dipole induced polarisation survey revealing further targets across the asset, including shallow chargeable anomalies at the Harden gold mine prospect.
