The 106km2 Pitiangoma Est project is located on the Syama shear zone in southern Mali, approximately 300km southeast of the capital Bamako. The project is 15km south of the Tabakoroni deposit (610koz Au) and approximately 40km south of the 8Moz Syama gold mine; both owned by Resolute Mining Ltd.
Historical exploration includes regolith sampling (6,930 soil and 1,230 auger samples), lithological mapping, airborne geophysics (VTEM), BLEG stream sediment sampling and RC drilling (2,160m) as well as diamond drilling (6,450m). These work programmes were completed by Endeavour, prior to the project being acquired by Legend Gold.
Former JV partner Resolute reportedly completed 110 air core drill holes for a total of 4,869m and a gradient array IP survey focussed on the Misseni Prospect and this has reportedly been followed up by a 7 hole (3,167m) RC drilling programme in 2017.
