~ Highlights include 3.3 grams of gold/tonne over 10.7 meters ~
January 27, 2015 - Reno, NV - NuLegacy Gold Corporation reports gold assays from the last four reverse circulation holes drilled during the fall 2014 exploration program on the Iceberg gold deposit in the Cortez gold-trend of Nevada, USA.
Two of the four holes (RHB-35 and 36) were drilled as extensions of the North zone of the Iceberg and two (RHB-37 and 38) were wildcat step outs. Of the two step-outs RHB 37 was drilled fully 600 meters/1,950 feet to the west of the Iceberg proper to test a gold in soil geochemical anomaly and results indicate a possible western extension (or parallel zone) to the Iceberg gold deposit. RHB 38 is 1,750 meters/5,700 feet to the northeast as an initial test of a CSAMTi geophysical anomaly along the range front.
Iceberg extensions - the high grade North zone is open in all directions:
- Hole RHB-35 returned a significant high-grade gold intercept of 3.3 grams of gold/tonne over 10.7 meters/35.1 feet (within a 32.0 meter/105 foot interval of 1.23 grams of gold/tonne) extending the high grade zone 45 meters/150 feet to the northeast with individual samples as high as 12.7 grams of gold/tonne.
- Both holes RHB-35 and 36 encountered significant gold mineralization within the strongly oxidized and altered Horse Canyon (HC) contact zone as reported below.
|RHB-35||North Iceberg||77.7||109.7||32.0||105.0||1.23||HC contact|
|RHB-38||Range Front||No significant interval|
Wildcats -- the 60 sq. km/23 sq. mile property is a target rich environment:
- Hole RHB-37 encountered gold mineralization in silicified siltstone/limestone within the HC contact zone. As an initial test of either a western extension or parallel zone to the Iceberg gold deposit, this is an important hole; it confirms gold mineralization beneath a large 'gold in soil anomaly' to the west of Iceberg. Additional drilling is needed to adequately test this anomaly.
- While hole RHB-38 detected no reportable gold, it did encounter 23 meters/75 feet of silicified siltstone and limestone with associated Carlin-type trace elements. This is the first hole in this large range front CSAMT anomaly which is being reassessed to identify additional drill targets.
Reverse circulation drilling by Boart Longyear Company of Elko, NV under the supervision of David Mallo, Exploration Manager and Dr. Roger Steininger, COO (CPG 7417). Samples were analyzed by American Assay Labs of Sparks, NV. Sufficient commercially prepared standards, blanks, and duplicates were inserted to assure quality analytical results. Data verification of the analytical results included a statistical analysis of the duplicates, standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to ensure accurate and verifiable results.
About NuLegacy: NuLegacy Gold has discovered a classic Carlin-type oxidized gold deposit (the Iceberg) with an exploration targetii of 90 to 110 million tonnes grading between 0.90 gram and 1.10 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 is on trend with three of Barrick's multi-million ounce Carlin-type systems that are its largest, lowest cost and politically safest gold depositsiii in the world. The Iceberg is adjacentiv to the third of these, the Goldrush deposit,v which is the most significant green-field discovery by a major gold producer in the past five years.

ii 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.
iii As extracted from Barrick's Q4-2013 and Q1-2014 reports.
iv The close proximity of the Goldrush deposit to the Iceberg deposit is not necessarily indicative of the gold mineralization in the Iceberg deposit.
v 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).
