NuLegacy Gold Corporation is a Nevada focused exploration company exploring for Carlin-type replacement gold deposits on its two highly prospective district scale properties; the 100 square km Red Hill Project and the 80 square km Wood Hills South Project. Both projects have geology similar to that of the adjacent multi-million ounce gold discoveries that were made subsequent to our acquisition of the properties. The NuLegacy exploration and drilling programs underway employ proprietary techniques for targeting multi-million ounce deposits.
