Investee Company Update

Medgold Resources Corp. ("Medgold")

Defines Major Gold Target at the Pampilhal Prospect, Vila de Rei, Portugal


Legendary is pleased to report that its investee company, Medgold Resources Corp. (TSX-V: MED) ("Medgold"), has reported promising first-pass sampling results at its wholly-owned Vila de Rei gold project in central Portugal which covers 40 line km of a regional structure.   


Preliminary exploration at the Pampilhal prospect has outlined highly anomalous gold mineralisation over a 2.4 km by 1.3 km area, including over 2.8 km combined strike length of linear, structurally-controlled gold-bearing silica ridges or "ribs".   


·     The longest exposed silica rib, extends for over 1.2 km and returned anomalous gold along its entire length, with assays ranging from trace to 12.45 g/t Au and including samples of 3.48 g/t and 1.06 g/t Au.  Thirty-two rock grab samples were collected along its length at roughly 40-100 m intervals.

·     The Western Ridge is exposed over 300 m and returned consistent high gold assays for a first-pass sampling program.  Five rock grab samples were collected along its length at roughly 75-100 m intervals, returning 2.10 g/t, 1.20 g/t, 1.45 g/t, 2.36 g/t and 1.15 g/t Au. 


·     In the southern end of the prospect, the Southeast Ridge is exposed over 365 m.  Eight rock grab samples were collected, yielding results from 0.046 g/t to 3.76 g/t Au and including samples of 3.32 g/t Au and 1.84 g/t Au.


The work has substantially upgraded the potential of the Vila de Rei licence area. Ongoing work will now focus on the principal prospect of Pampilhal, which covers an area of 2.4 km by 1.3 km.


Vila de Rei is only one of a number of projects that Medgold is developing in Portugal, Spain and Italy and it is moving all of these forward with a view to having a number of quality drill targets by the end of the year.  



Zafar Karim, Executive Chairman of Legendary, said "Medgold continues to make progress and remains on track towards becoming a leading Mediterranean-focused gold exploration and project development company."
