Legacy Minerals (ASX: LGM) has hit visible gold from maiden drilling at its Harden Gold Mine Prospect in the NSW South West Slopes region, with the news coming just three days after its ASX listing.
The visible gold was observed 80m down hole in several drill chips from a single step-out RC hole positioned adjacent to Harden’s historically-mined ore body.
The Harden Project houses a number of large hard-rock historical gold mines that produced approximately 75,000 ounces of gold before 1919
Legacy reports that drilling along 800m of strike has intersected moderate and strong quartz-sericite-pyrite zones up to 17m in width, while field work has extended the interpreted strike of historical mine workings by 500m to 1.4km.
Modelling of the Harden Gold Mine Corridor now includes Harden East, Harden Future, Harden Gold Mine, Harden Central, and Harden Extended.
The Harden Project houses a number of large hard-rock historical gold mines that produced approximately 75,000 ounces of gold before 1919, at an average grade of 28.6 g/t Au.
The project contains two main strike areas: the Harden Gold Mine corridor and the McMahons Reef Gold mine corridor.
