Legend Mining Suspends Drilling At Ngovayang Due To Heavy Rain

Legend Mining (ASX: LEG) has suspended drilling operations at its Ngovayang Project in Cameroon due to the commencement of heavy seasonal rain marking the on-set of the wet season.

Mark Wilson, managing director, said: "Heavy seasonal rains have made it impractical to continue our drilling operations.

"We will use this opportunity to conduct maintenance on equipment and carry out reviews of geological, structural and drilling data from both Plateau and Melombo East Projects as per previous announcements."

Prior to the suspension, the drilling program at Plateau was completed.

Last week Legend returned further magnetite mineralisation intersections demonstrating encouraging grades of above 25% iron and thicknesses of over 30 metres from drilling at its Plateau Project.

Significant downhole thicknesses of magnetite bearing gneiss ranging from 54.2 metres to 100.4 metres were intersected in seven of the 25 holes drilled.

Drilling was testing a 2.5 kilometre portion of a regional 10 kilometre linear aeromagnetic feature associated with outcropping magnetite gneiss.

A full review of the geological, structural and drilling data will now be undertaken in respect of the Plateau Project.

A decision on whether to drill additional holes including at the location of the two incomplete holes will be made during the review process.
