Drilling to Commence Pending Financing

RENO, Nev., June 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NuLegacy Gold’s geological team of Dr. Roger Steininger (director, and co-founder) and Charles Weakly (Exploration Manager), together with recently enrolled key members of Barrick’s former Goldrush discovery team, Nancy Richter (joined NuLegacy’s team as of Feb. 22, 2023), Michael Penick (Mar. 21, 2023), and Robert Leonardson (April 11, 2023), have completed their in-depth global review and analysis of the Carlin-style gold mineralizing systems at NuLegacy’s Red Hill property and have agreed on the top 5 priority drill targets for the 2023 drill program.

The review of NuLegacy’s flagship 108 sq. km Red Hill property in the Cortez gold-trend approximately 7 km south of Nevada Gold Mines’ multi-million-ounce Tier 1 Goldrush gold deposit¹ concluded that the Cortez-Goldrush-Red Hill block is unique, with continuous deposition of favorable slope facies carbonate rocks from the Roberts Mountains through the Wenban formations. As well, the large displacement (>300m) north-northwest trending steep dipping faults with proximal gold mineralization can be traced from the Cortez mine area through NuLegacy’s Red Hill property, providing an additional link between the two properties.

The gold mineralization found to date at Red Hill is similar to that of the high-grade Cortez Fourmile deposit area, localized at the intersections of high and low-angle faults with associated metamorphic alteration and local to moderate scale folding.

The host rocks for the Carlin-type gold mineralization include the Devonian Wenban Unit 5, Devonian Horse Canyon, and Devonian-Silurian Roberts Mountains formations. Prior drilling has shown an approximate 3-kilometer-wide zone of Carlin-type alteration and local gold mineralization under the volcanic cover rocks of the Northern Nevada Rift.

The link between gold mineralization and metamorphic alteration is encouraging, as very-high grades can occur in this setting as at the Cortez Fourmile and the southern margins of the Goldstrike Betze-Post gold deposits.¹ At Red Hill, a Cretaceous diorite intrusive is associated with metamorphic alteration, with dike zones known to occur along the Iceberg Corridor, the Mid Rift target area, and are inferred from surface mapped metamorphic alteration to the east of the Iceberg fault.

The larger bodies of these favorable Cretaceous diorites are interpreted at depth based on strong resistive zones in CSAMT geophysics, and coincident zones of stronger metamorphic alteration mapped at surface and intercepted in drilling. The major drill targets are focused proximally to or above these larger bodies where all other positive target elements intersect as illustrated in the cross-sections below.

Although both epithermal and Carlin style mineralization have been identified at Red Hill, NuLegacy’s exploration focus has been on Carlin style mineralization which presents the opportunity for the larger prize. Gold mineralization occurs along both low and high-angle faults, most often at fault intersections, with the best grade closely associated with altered lamprophyre dikes.

Some of the more robust intercepts drilled in the deposit areas include 41.2m @ 3.91 g/t including 12.2m @ 10.95 g/t and 4.6m @ 25.21 g/t and 35.1m @ 3.41 g/t including 21.3m @ 5.31 g/t in the North zone (RHB40 and RHB58)² and 22.1m @ 6.59 g/t including 8.7m @ 16.92 g/t in the Serena zone (SR18-02C).³

2023 Drill Target Synthesis Plan Map:

While there are numerous drill target areas at Red Hill, the 5 highest priority targets are in the Mid Rift, South Iceberg, and West Rift (Phase 1 proposed drill sites in figure above) determined by geochemical vectoring from existing results and focused along sets of north-northwest trending, steep dipping faults associated with metamorphic and metasomatic alteration at intersections with low angle west dipping fault zones as areas likely to have thick potentially gold bearing host rock sequences and near-vertical bedding within the best host rock sequences.

Pending financing the proposed five-hole Phase 1 2023 drill program (as illustrated in the following cross-sections in green) is approximately 3,000 meters (~10,000 feet) of RC-holes with average depths of 600 meters (2,000 feet) focused on the Mid-Rift, South-West Rift and South Iceberg target areas. Cross-sections from the plan map above covering the five holes are shown directly below.

Cross Section N4431500, Mid Rift drill site MR23-01:

Cross Section N4431500, Mid Rift drill site MR23-01: 120-meter thick Dw5 between CMZ-E and CMZ-F faults at intersection with Migo fault, proximal to interpreted Central Zone diorite body at depth.

Cross Section N 4430300:

Cross Section N 4430300, West Rift re-drill of pre-collar RA21-10X terminated drilling in silicified breccia Dw5 with anomalous Au), and South Iceberg target, IS23-01, 200-meter thick Dw5 between CMZ-G and AMZ faults, just above an interpreted diorite dike and intrusive body at depth.

South Cross Section:

South Cross Section, Mid Rift target, MR23-02, 84 m thick Dw5 within main CMZ fault (F-G), and South Iceberg target, IS23-01, 200-meter thick Dw5 between AMZ and CMZ-G faults, above interpreted diorite.

The global review has improved NuLegacy’s confidence in the continuity of major structures between Cortez mine and the Red Hill property and the potential for a large Carlin-type gold deposit at Red Hill.

NuLegacy will seek financing for the 2023 program over the next several weeks while continuing its efforts to market either the Red Hill property directly, or its wholly-owned subsidiary NuLegacy Gold Corporation NV, to a suitable third party producer with a view to financing the further exploration of Red Hill to finally discover an ‘elephant sized’ Carlin-style gold deposit like its neighbours to the northeast.

NuLegacy Gold is focused on confirming potential high-grade Carlin-style gold deposits within its flagship 108 sq. km (42 sq. mile) district scale Red Hill Property in the Cortez gold trend of Nevada. The targets are on trend and adjacentI to three, multi-million ounce Carlin-type gold deposits (the Pipeline, Cortez Hills and Goldrush deposits) which are ranked amongst the world’s thirty largest, lowest cost and politically safest gold mines and are three of Nevada Gold Mines’ most profitable mines.II

³ As announced by NuLegacy on August 27, 2018. These intercepts are not necessarily true widths as there is currently insufficient data to calculate true orientation.
