Legend Gold Corp.: FT Deposit Infill Oxide Drilling Intersects 35 m of 1.22 g/t Gold and Confirms Grade Continuity

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/18/14 -- Legend Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "Legend") (TSX VENTURE: LGN) is pleased to announce the results from 714 m of infill reverse circulation ("RC") drilling in 14 holes. The drill holes were located to provide intersections in oxide mineralization in areas where sulfide grades had been extrapolated into the oxide.

The results provide confirmation of the continuity and grade of oxide mineralization on the FT deposit. The FT deposit lies with the Tabakorole Exploration Permit Application area which replaces the Tiekoumala Exploration Permit.

Significant intersections from the latest round of drilling are shown in the table below. Intercepts are calculated at 0.5 g/t cut off and with up to 2 meters of internal waste. True widths of grade intervals are approximately 85% of the downhole intercept based on the general dip of the mineralization.

The oxide resource currently stands at 34,000 oz at 1.01 g/t gold in the indicated category and 35,000 oz at 1.14 g/t gold in the inferred category. A recalculation of the oxide resource incorporating the new drill intersections is being prepared. The sulfide resource remains 207,000 oz at 0.94 g/t gold in the indicated category and 318,000 oz at 1.03 g/t gold in the inferred category (A. Daniels, Technical Report 2007).

QA/QC Procedures:

The entire volume of chips from each reverse circulation interval were collected, dried and split on site into an approximately 2 kg subsample using a Jones splitter on a meter by meter basis. The 2 kg sample was submitted to SGS Laboratories ("SGS") in Bamako for crushing, grinding and 50 g 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. RC pulps as well as RC 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 two 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.
