  • Legend Mining Defines Gold Anomaly At Ngovayang Project In Cameroon 0 comments
    Jul 30, 2013 1:46 AM

    Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) has defined a 1,000 metre by 400 metre gold anomaly from soil sampling at the Bikala gold prospect at its Ngovayang Project in Cameroon.

    This anomaly with 20ppb gold remains open to the west and provides early encouragement about a similar program being carried out at the Nkoutou prospect.

    The sampling program at Bikala was designed to follow up five anomalous drainages/catchments, which consistently returned pan concentrate samples, and contain numerous small scale artisanal alluvial workings.

    The large anomaly is closely associated with an east-west trending topographic "ridge" and its northern flank, and better defines the "source area" for the pan concentrate results and occurrence of artisanal workings.

    The coherent nature and size of the anomaly indicates the potential to host significant gold mineralisation.

    Sampling also defined a 300 metre long coherent anomaly about 500 metres to the northeast along a single soil traverse.

    Several "spot" high gold values of up to 156ppb gold were returned from sampling, possibly related to narrow veins, however the significance of these samples requires further investigation.

    The host rocks at Bikala comprise predominantly amphibole-biotite-feldspar-garnet gneiss and calc-silicate with an overall east-west to northeast-southwest foliation trend and are commonly intruded by granitic/felsic rocks.

    Reprocessed aeromagnetic data supports this main foliation trend, however also highlights a series of crosscutting regional and local scale faults/fractures with northwest-southeast and east-northeast to west-southwest trends.

    The NW-SE structural trend is confirmed by the geological mapping and considered a possible control on mineralisation at Bikala.

    "The coherency and size of the gold anomaly at Bikala are the key factors behind this being a significant result. We now have defined a specific area in which to focus future exploration work," managing director Mark Wilson said.

    "Once the results from a similar style program at Nkoutou are available, we will be able to better plan future gold focussed work at our Ngovayang Project."

    Nkoutou Prospect

    Pan concentrate and stream sediment sampling has been completed at Nkoutou and detailed geological mapping is currently underway.

    This work will define the extent of the anomalous drainages/catchments, over which a follow-up soil sampling program will be undertaken, as at Bikala.

    Rockchip samples of the host gneiss and calc-silicate containing varying amounts of sulphide, silica alteration and quartz veining, collected during mapping have been submitted for multi-element analysis.

    All exploration work completed at Nkoutou to date continues to rank the prospect as a high priority gold target.

    A full assessment of geochemical and geological results from both Bikala and Nkoutou will be completed prior to implementing follow-up programs.

    Legend Mining had $6.4 million in cash as of 30 June 2013 and $3.6 million in shares of Sirius Resources (ASX: SIR), Artemis Resources (ASX: ARV), Nemex Resources (ASX: NXR) and Pilbara Minerals (ASX: PLS).
