~ Drilling has commenced; Permits to be expanded ~
October 21, 2019 - Vancouver, B.C. - NuLegacy Gold Corporation (“NuLegacy” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NUG; OTCQB: NULG.F) is pleased to report the commencement of its Fall 2019-Spring 2020 exploration program.
The Fall 2019-Spring 2020 exploration program is budgeted at US$3.5 million (C$4.7 million) with a total of 17 deep core holes measuring ~7,000 meters (~23,000 feet1) targeting five different zones, and a substantial expansion of the AV Plan of Operations.
Drilling: The Fall 2019 program is budgeted at ~US$0.75 to 1.0 million (~C$1.25 million) anticipating five to seven core holes (~3,300 meters/11,000 feet) including two holes for each of the Serena Offset and Western Slope zones with an additional two or possibly three (weather permitting) in the “4Mile Look-alike” zone.

Boart Longyear has provided a LF-90 track mounted core rig capable of drilling to 2,300 feet (700 m) which is currently completing Hole SO (Serena Offset) 19-01. The Boart rig will drill the four holes (Serena Offset & Western Slope) east of the Rift. Legarza Exploration is extending the road to the west side of the Rift Zone to access the targets for the two or three initial “4Mile Look-alike” holes (1see map as above). Tonatec Drilling is supplying an Atlas Copco 4000 core rig capable of drilling to 6,000 feet (2,000 m) to drill the two or three holes in the Look-alike zone.
Permitting: In November 2018, NuLegacy reported final approval from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for the AV (Avocado) Plan of Operations (PoO) environmental permit. EnviroScience and its subcontractors will be expanding the AV PoO to the south and west to include all the areas currently being drilled as well as the Rift Anticline zone in the middle. The expansion of this PoO, budgeted at US$500,000, will cover a total of 8,500 acres (~13 sq. miles); the substantially larger disturbance allowance will provide NuLegacy the necessary flexibility in planning and permitting drill sites for follow up to the successes of the Fall-Spring exploration program.
1 Final tally will depend on terminal depth of the holes.
