Recon Aircore Drilling Finds Anomalous Gold Over Wide Area on the Mougnina Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- Legend Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "Legend") (TSX VENTURE:LGN) is pleased to announce the results from a 5,845 meter reconnaissance aircore drill program on the Mougnina Project located within the Bala Ouest Exploration Permit Application area. The drilling returned anomalous gold over two areas of ancient artisanal workings, Site B and Site G (To view the accompanying maps, visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/LGNmaps2014-08.pdf).

The five sub-areas drilled, Sites A, B, C, F and G, had been selected on the basis of termite mound and soil auger geochemistry as well as the presence of ancient artisanal workings. Five fences, 400 meters apart were drilled on Site G, four fences on Site B, three fences on Site A and one fence each on Site C and F. All holes had a declination of -60 degrees and were allowed to run until bit refusal, at an average depth of 35 meters, although a number of holes on Site B were significantly shorter due to abundant quartz at shallow depths. Holes were spaced 50 meters apart on the fences, leaving a gap in drill hole coverage of approximately 30 meters between holes.

Fifty one (51) of 163 drill holes returned anomalous gold, that is, values greater than 100 ppb. These values were concentrated in holes adjacent to the trend of the ancient artisanal workings. Distal holes on the fences were not anomalous. Best intercept values are shown in the table below.

Sites A and B show the most consistent anomalous values, while Sites A, F and G give the highest values. The results of the reconnaissance aircore drilling coupled with current artisanal mining over a strike length of 3 km on Site G are very encouraging. A program of detailed termite mound geochemistry over an area of 3 km x 1 km is currently underway to better define drill targets on Site G. More closely spaced and infill drilling is warranted on Sites A, B, F and G. These Sites all lie on structures inferred from airborne magnetic surveys to be sub-parallel to the major Syama Shear Zone which hosts Resolute's Syama and Tabakoroni mines.

QA/QC Procedures:

The entire volume of chips from each aircore drill interval were collected, dried and split on site into an approximately 2 kg subsample using a Jones splitter on a meter by meter basis. Aircore samples were then recombined using a Jones splitter to obtain 2 meter composite samples. The 2 kg sample was submitted to SGS Laboratories ("SGS") in Bamako for crushing, grinding and 50 gram gold fire assay with AAS finish. Approximately 5% of both high and low grade, oxide gold standards as well as 5% blanks were inserted into the sample stream before delivery of the samples to SGS. Every 20 samples, a duplicate sample was created from the chip rejects and included in the sample stream. Aircore pulps rejects are kept as a reference. A QA/QC analysis was performed on the results of the standard, duplicate and blank sample assays. If results of adjacent standards fell outside three standard deviations of the standard control assay, samples from that batch were flagged for re-assay. All standards, duplicates, and blanks passed the QA/QC validation protocols.
