RENO, NEVADA–(Marketwired – June 7, 2016) – NuLegacy Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NUG)(OTCQX:NULGF) reports it has received $1.36 million from the exercise of 9.1 million warrants exercisable at C$0.15 per share prior to their expiry date of June 2, 2016.
“This brings NuLegacy cash balance to approximately C$8.0 million. With our improved financial position, several strategic shareholders, and a number of highly prospective targets within the Cortez gold-trend we look forward to adding significant value for shareholders in 2016”, commented James Anderson, NuLegacy’s Chief Executive Officer.
Drilling of the first phase (10 holes) of our multiphase 10,000 meter (33,000 feet) 2016 Iceberg gold deposit exploration program is underway. The 2016 program is concentrated in and between the North, Central, and South zones of the Iceberg gold deposit with the objective of extending these zones and expanding on the high-grade discovered in the North zone during the 2015 exploration program; i.e. hole RHB-40 which returned 10.9 grams/t. over 12.2 meters within an interval of 3.9 grams/t. over 41.2 meters. Completion of the 10,000 meters (approximately 40 holes) is scheduled in several phases to late September.
A sizable portion of the holes will be exploring other Carlin-type gold systems on the property, principally the Avocado, VIO and Jasperoid Basin gold anomalies, as well as several targets on the minimally-explored Idaho portion (east of the Iceberg deposit).
The Company announces that it has granted stock options to certain directors, officers and consultants to purchase up to an aggregate of 700,000 common shares at a price of $0.30 per share exercisable for a period of five years. The options are subject to vesting in four equal semi-annual instalments over a period of 2 years.
