RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) -

THIS NEWS RELEASE, REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE CANADIAN LAWS, IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

NuLegacy Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NUG) announces that further to its new release of November 23, 2011, the Company has completed an initial closing of its non-brokered private placement. The Company has sold a total of 6,932,500 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.15 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,039,875. Each Unit consists of one common share and one share purchase warrant, each warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of the Company for a period of 18 months at a price of $0.25 during the first 12 months and $0.35 during the last 6 months.

A finder's fee of 8% cash and 8% non-transferable finder's warrants is payable to certain registered dealers on a portion of the private placement. Each finder's warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of 18 months at a price of $0.15.

All securities issued under the initial closing are subject to a four month and one day hold period expiring April 6, 2012.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to finance the Company's gold exploration programs in Nevada, U.S.A and for general corporate purposes.

NuLegacy Gold Corporation is a Nevada focused exploration company exploring for Carlin-type replacement gold deposits on its two highly prospective district scale properties; the 100 square km Red Hill Project and the 80 square km Wood Hills South Project. Both projects have geology similar to that of the adjacent multi-million ounce gold discoveries that were made subsequent to our acquisition of the properties. The NuLegacy exploration and drilling programs underway employ proprietary techniques for targeting multi-million ounce deposits.
