Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half share purchase warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of two years at an exercise price of $0.15 during the first year and $0.20 during the second. Closing of the transaction is subject to conditional acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange and finder's fees may be paid.
NuLegacy is adding these funds to strengthen its balance sheet and maintain financial flexibility. The Company has the funds on hand to complete the remaining $700,000 (of the original total of $5.0 million of qualified exploration expenditures) required to earn-into its 70% working interest in the Iceberg gold deposit.
"As we near the completion of the earn-in to the Iceberg gold deposit we are accepting additional funding from our shareholders," commented company Chairman Albert Matter, "Depending on Barrick's decision, the funds will be used to carry out further drilling and exploration to expand the Iceberg or fund the exploration of our 100% working interest in the Idaho Resources Corporation (IRC) claims, which have similar favorable geology as and are located directly adjacent to the east of the Iceberg deposit."
Exploration of the Iceberg continues with assays from the second set of six holes drilled this year expected by mid-June and drilling of the next set of 6 holes scheduled to begin June 8.
- Focused on delineating gold resources in the prolific Cortez gold trend of Nevada.
- Completing the earn-in to a 70% working interest in a classic Carlin-type oxidized gold deposit (the Iceberg) on a 25 sq. mile portion of the Cortez trend under option from Barrick Gold Corporation by year-end 2015.

i These figures are conceptual in nature and derived from a compilation of 149 historic and 34 NuLegacy drill holes in and around the Iceberg deposit. 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 As extracted from Barrick's Q4-2013 and Q1-2014 reports.
iii The close proximity of the Goldrush deposit to the Iceberg deposit is not necessarily indicative of the gold mineralization in the Iceberg deposit.
iv As reported by Barrick as of December 31, 2013, the Goldrush deposit contained a resource of 423,000 ounce of gold (3.1 million tons grading 0.137 oz./ton - measured), 9,537,000 ounces (72.5 million tons grading 0.132 oz./ton - indicated) and 5,555,000 ounce (39.5 million tons grading 0.141oz./ton - inferred).
