Ground geophysics identifies drill targets at Sultan Sary Gold Project, Kyrgyzstan


Legendary is pleased to announce that it has received the results of the geophysical study carried out by Manas Resources LLP ("Manas") (announced on 25 August 2016), intended to better define and delineate known and potential gold mineralisation in two subareas of the 66km2 license area in Sultan Sary, Narynskaya Oblast, Kyrgyzstan.


Area 3, considered to be the most prospective area, covers approximately 1.2 km2 in the southwestern corner of the License area. The pole-dipole IP surveys conducted in Area 3, which is almost entirely covered by Quaternary sediments, have identified strong chargeability and/or resistivity anomalies over a strike length of some 1.4 km extending from the edge of the survey area. Modelling of the results suggests that the tops of the targets are 50 - 100 metres from surface. These anomalies correspond with the postulated WNW extension of the gold-rich structural corridor that hosts the known deposits (outside the license area) of Choloktor (3km), Buchuk (5km) and Altyntor (9km). Altyntor is currently being mined by Kyrgyzaltyn, a Chinese company, and about 5 tonnes of gold has historically been mined from Buchuk. Under the Russian/Soviet classification scheme Buchuk contains a C1 resource of 20 tonnes of gold, and Altyntor contains a C1 and C2 resource of 7 tonnes of gold.


Zafar Karim, Executive Chairman of Legendary comments: "We are delighted that the geophysics supports our belief that the gold-rich structural corridor continues across the tenement border onto the Manas Resources license area, and has identified such strong targets. The next stage is to drill testing these very promising targets in 2017".


The geophysics programme focussed on the high priority subareas (Areas 2 and 3), and consisted of ground magnetics, Induced Polarisation (IP) profiles and gamma spectrometry. The geophysics carried out on Area 2 were more exploratory in nature than in Area 3 (200m vs 100m line spacing respectively). The results received from Area 2 are sufficiently positive to warrant follow-up work in 2017 to better define potential drill targets. The focus of follow up work is expected to be Area 3.


Legendary holds a 5.5% stake in Manas, with an option over an additional 4.45% stake. Manas holds a license to explore and mine for gold in Sultan Sary, Narynskaya Oblast, Kyrgyzstan. The license area is located in the gold-rich Tien-Shan region and covers approximately 66 sq km.
