~ Brief update on permitting and exploration programs ~
VANCOUVER – NuLegacy Gold Corporation (“NuLegacy” or the “Company”) (TSXV: NUG; OTCQB: NULG.F) reports that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement of 75,000,000 units (the “Units”) at a price of C$0.075 per Unit to raise gross proceeds to the Company of C$5.625 million (the “Offering”).
NuLegacy’s CEO Albert Matter comments that, “We want to thank our new shareholders and many of our existing shareholders who once again stepped up to provide the capital to continue this 10-year adventure of elephant hunting in Nevada. Together with our current cash position, net of issue expenses, we have ~ C$ 9.5 million (~US$ 6.5 million) on hand to complete the planned 16-hole fall/spring 2020/2021 exploration program.
These holes should cost in the order of US$ 250,000 apiece to drill; you need deep holes when you are hunting for Nevada’s elephant-sized deposits. Our analysis of the ~7.5 sq. km target area (the Rift Anticline) suggests that a 14 to 16-hole pattern1 would be able to find a deposit whether it’s of the size of the current three giants in the Cortez, (with a likely footprint of ~ 1.5 sq. km.) or a more regular Nevada sized deposit (with a likely footprint of ~ 0.3 sq.km)2. https://nulegacygold.com/site/assets/files/6527/0014.1200x0.jpg )
While we are highly confident of drilling success in the Rift Anticline, at the recommendation of one of our advisors, Dr. Hennigh, we are proceeding with the additional CSAMT and gravity surveys, as referenced in our last news release.
The additional cross-sectional CSAMT lines parallel to the existing east-west lines, will help confirm the length and structural continuity of the prospective target. The CSAMT lines being surveyed at an oblique angle to the existing lines will provide triangulation that should improve our drill site targeting.
Further, we are increasing the density of the gravity survey stations over the Rift Anticline from 200 meter spacing to 100 meters spacing which is expected to provide better resolution of the gravity lows indicative of decalcification of carbonates at depth, i.e. the beneficiation needed for gold precipitation.
Our US$500,000 expansion of our permitted Plan of Operations over the Red Hill property is on schedule for submission to the BLM in July with acceptance anticipated in September; discussions are under way toward a drilling contract/s for one RC rig and two core rigs to start drilling mid-October.”
Offering details: Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company (a “Common Share”) and one-half of one transferable Common Share purchase warrant (each full warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one Common Share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.125 for a period, subject to acceleration, of 24 months from closing of the Offering.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to carry out the expanded exploration program on the Rift Anticline including the 16 planned core holes, as well as for general corporate and working capital purposes.
Certain finder’s and/or advisory fees were paid in cash, shares and/or warrants to various arm’s length dealers in connection with the Offering in accordance with the policies of the TSXV. All securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four month hold period from the date of issue.
About NuLegacy Gold Corporation: Focused on confirming high-grade Carlin-style gold deposits on its premier 108 sq. km (42 sq. mile) district scale Red Hill Property in the Cortez gold trend of Nevada. The Red Hill Property is located on trend and adjacentI to the 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 minesII.
1 There should be time enough for four to six holes in the fall (2020) before winter shut down with the balance of the holes scheduled to start up in the late spring 2021.
2 The proximity of Red Hill to other gold deposits in the Cortez trend is not necessarily indicative of gold mineralization at Red Hill.
I The similarity and proximity of these deposits in the Cortez Trend including Goldrush is not necessarily indicative of the gold mineralization in NuLegacy’s Red Hill Property.
II As extracted from Barrick’s Q4-2013 and Q1-2014 reports. As reported by Barrick, the Goldrush resource contains 8,557,000 indicated ounces of gold within 25.78 million tonnes grading ~10.57 g/t and 1,650,000 inferred ounces within 5.6 million tonnes grading ~9.0 g/t.
