September 16, 2014 - Reno, NV - NuLegacy Gold Corporation reports two new Directors have been appointed to the Board.
NuLegacy Gold welcomes Mr. Alex J. Davidson, formerly Executive Vice-President of Exploration and Corporate Development of Barrick Gold Corporation and Mr. Richard Wells, currently the Chief Financial Officer of Waterton Global Resource Management, Inc. to the board. NuLegacy expresses its appreciation to Mr. Arv Gupta, Vice-President of The Brick who has served the Company well these past three years for retiring to make room for these industry specific directors.
Alex Davidson, who retired from Barrick Gold in 2009, is a recognized leader in designing, implementing and managing highly successful and strategic gold and base metal exploration and acquisition programs throughout the world. In 2003, Alex was named the Prospector of the Year in recognition for his team's discovery of the Lagunas Norte mine in the Alto Chicama District, Peru. In 2005 he received the A.O. Dufresne Award in recognition of his exceptional achievements and distinguished contributions to mining exploration in Canada and around the world.
Richard Wells has been the Chief Financial Officer of Waterton Global since 2010. He is responsible for all financial aspects of Waterton Global's corporate office and operating subsidiaries including accounting, reporting, taxation, investor relations and administrative matters. Richard serves as Chair of Waterton's Valuation Committee. He provides financial oversight as a board member for Waterton's various operating companies. Richard was previously Manager of Financial Reporting at Canadian automotive company, Magna International, Inc. He was awarded the Canadian Chartered Accountant designation (Ontario Honour Role) in 2002 while employed in the audit practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The Company also announces the granting of stock options to certain existing directors, officers and consultants of the Company to purchase, subject to vesting requirements, up to an aggregate of 1,200,000 common shares for a period of five years at an exercise price equal to today's closing price of the Company's shares on the TSX Venture Exchange.
NuLegacy Gold has discovered a classic Carlin-type oxidized gold deposit (the Iceberg) with an exploration target of 90 to 110 million tonnes grading between 0.70 gram and 1.00 gram of gold/tonne in the famed Cortez gold-trend of Nevada. The Iceberg is on a 60 sq. km portion of the Cortez optioned from Barrick Gold Corporation, and on trend with Barrick's three multi-million ounce Carlin-type systems that are its largest, lowest cost and politically safest gold deposits in the world. The Iceberg is adjacent to the third of these, the Goldrush deposit which is the most significant green-field discovery by a major gold producer in the past five years.
NuLegacy's 2014-15 exploration programs are designed to complete the earn-in to a 70% working interest in the Iceberg; they are focused on finding the higher grade cores usually associated with the Cortez's Carlin-type gold deposits that make them such coveted prizes.
