NuLegacy Initiates New Geophysical Surveys on Red Hill Gold Project, Nevada

RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2011) - NuLegacy Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:NUG) recently commenced a deep-penetrating induced polarization ("IP") and resistivity survey on its Red Hill Project in Nevada that is centered around the historic drill hole BRH-13 which contained a 13.7 m intercept grading 8.11 g/t gold (45 ft of 0.25 oz/ton gold).

"The purpose of the survey is to guide NuLegacy`s future drilling programs by delineating the structures and hydrothermal alteration related to the high grade gold mineralization intersected in BRH-13," said Dr. Steininger, NuLegacy's COO. "This survey is another important and valuable step toward our goal of discovering a significant gold deposit at Red Hill."

This new IP survey will penetrate to a depth of about 700 m. Once the results are evaluated, a drill plan will be developed to test the possible extensions of the BRH-13's gold mineralization. Drilling is planned to re-start at the Red Hill gold Project as soon as equipment is available this spring.

NuLegacy Gold's 100 square km Red Hill Project is in the Cortez Segment of the Battle-Mountain trend immediately adjacent to Barrick's newly announced (Sept. 2011) 3.5 million ounce inferred resource Red Hill-Goldrush gold discoveries.

The Cortez Segment is a 5+ km wide and 25+ km long west-northwest alignment of known large bulk-mineable, sediment-hosted gold deposits. This truly "world class" gold district includes the Pipeline Complex (which NuLegacy's COO Dr. Roger Steininger is credited with discovering in 1989), the Cortez and the Cortez Hills gold mines, as well as the recent Red Hill-Goldrush gold discoveries. NuLegacy's Red Hill Prospect comprises similar geology to these gold deposits.

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 adjacent multi-million ounce gold discoveries by others 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.
