NuLegacy Updates Fall Exploration Progress

RENO, Nev., Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NuLegacy Gold Corporation reports that the sixteen holes 4,900 meters (16,000 feet) fall 2017 drilling program is two-thirds completed; logging, splitting of cores and assaying of the first ten holes is underway, and we expect to be able to report results by late December 2017/early January 2018.

We have just received the permitting for the Western Slope; the road up to its elevation is now under construction and weather permitting we will complete drilling two of the several holes planned, with the remainder to be drilled in the spring 2018.

To date the 2017 summer program added the Serena and VIO zone discoveries to the inventory of gold bearing zones on the Red Hill property, and expanded/added to the previous discoveries in the North and Central Iceberg deposits, the Avocado zone as well as establishing the Western Slope as a significant prospective target.

For a complete review of the summer 2017 exploration successes we refer you to the Oct 11 news release which provides guidance on the fall program and a complete review of the summer program.

About NuLegacy Gold Corporation: NuLegacy is a Nevada exploration company focused on discovering additional Carlin-style gold deposits on its premier district scale 98-sq. km (38 sq. mile) Red Hill Project in the prolific Cortez gold trend of Nevada. 

To date NuLegacy has discovered the Icebergi Carlin-style gold deposits and has identified several more highly prospective exploration targets that are being drilled this year.

NuLegacy’s Red Hill Project is located on trend and adjacentii to three multi-million ounce Carlin-type gold deposits (the Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush deposits) that are amongst Barrick Gold’s largest, lowest cost and politically safest gold minesiii.

i An established exploration target of 90-110 million tonnes of 0.9 to 1.1 grams of gold per tonne. These figures are conceptual in nature and derived from a compilation of 149 historic and 111 NuLegacy drill holes. To date, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
ii The similarity and proximity of these deposits in the Cortez Trend is not necessarily indicative of the gold mineralization in NuLegacy’s Red Hill Project.
iiiAs extracted from Barrick’s Q4-2013 and Q1-2014 reports.
