Legend Gold Mobilizes Rig for Drill Program at the Lakanfla Gold Project, Western Mali

- Plans to Drill Up to 10,000 Metres at Lakanfla -

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Legend Gold Corp. (the "Company" or "Legend Gold") (TSX VENTURE:LGN) is pleased to report that it will commence an extensive drill program at its 100% owned Lakanfla Project ("Lakanfla") in the Republic of Mali, West Africa. Up to 10,000 metres of combined reverse circulation ("RC"), and air core ("AC") drilling at Lakanfla is planned to test strike extensions of its previously discovered Zones 1, 2, and 3 as well as soil and termite mound geochemical anomalies proximal to the discovery zones (see press release dated February 4, 2011). The drill rig is expected to be mobilized onto the property on or about April 10, 2011.

The Lakanfla project is contiguous to the southern boundary of the Sadiola Gold Mine property (AngloGold Ashanti, IAMGOLD, SEMOS) ("Sadiola") and is situated 10 kilometres southeast of the Sadiola main open pit (6.5 million ounces of gold production). Mining is currently underway at two of Sadiola's satellite orebodies, FE3 and FE4, which are located within one kilometre of the Lakanfla permit boundary. The FE3 and FE4 pits have produced over one million ounces for Sadiola.

The Lakanfla Project consists of the Lakanfla permit (24 square kilometres) and the Tinntiba permit (25 square kilometres). The Lakanfla project forms a key part of the Company's strategy to explore and expand its gold discoveries along strike of the Sadiola Gold Mine. 

Scott Waldie, President and CEO of North Atlantic said, "We are very excited to get this drilling underway at Lakanfla. With the development of the FE3 and FE4 orebodies at Sadiola so close to our boundary we have very high expectations for our exploration success at Lakanfla."
