RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwired - Aug. 18, 2014) - NuLegacy Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NUG)(PINKSHEETS:NULGF) reports arranging a $3.5 million financing at $0.125 per share by way of a non-brokered private placement of 28.25 million shares with Waterton Precious Metals Fund II Cayman, LP ("Waterton").

It has a proven track record of creating and building value by combining extensive technical expertise with a disciplined approach to investment management.

This financing strengthens NuLegacy's working capital with proceeds to be used for exploration on the Company's Iceberg gold deposit in Nevada, general working capital and other corporate purposes. The 28,250,000 shares to be issued will represent 19.9% of the then outstanding shares for the consideration of $3,531,250 and will be subject to a 4 month hold period. No finder's fees or warrants will be issued in respect of this financing. Closing of the transaction is subject to conditional acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Waterton has agreed to provide the Company a three year voting trust agreement over its shares.
NuLegacy Gold Corporation is a Nevada based company focused on delineating gold resources in its near-surface Iceberg oxide gold deposit. The Iceberg gold deposit, located on a 60 square km portion of Barrick Gold Corporation's prolific Cortez gold trend, has similar geology to that of Barrick's immediately adjacent multi-million ounce Goldrush gold discovery.i
i As reported by Barrick, as of December 31, 2013, the Goldrush deposit contained a resource of 423,000 ozs gold (3.1 million tons grading 0.137 oz/ton - measured), 9,537,000 ozs gold (72.5 million tons grading 0.132 oz/ton - indicated) and 5,555,000 ozs gold (39.5 million tons grading 0.141 - inferred). The close proximity of the Goldrush deposit to the Iceberg project is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization contained in the Iceberg project.
