NuLegacy Gold Corporation (TSX-V: NUG; OTC Other: NULGF) announced that drilling to complete the remaining ten holes of an initial twenty hole reconnaissance program has resumed on the 100 sq km Wood Hills South gold project, Elko County, Nevada.
Late in 2011, NuLegacy Gold drilled the first ten holes of the planned twenty-hole, widely-spaced reconnaissance drilling program with assay results reported February 6, 2012.
Eight of the ten holes contained intervals of anomalous gold and favorable trace elements with hole WHS11-007 returning the most significant result; a near surface and oxidized 10.7 meter interval that averaged 0.40 g/t gold within approximately 60 meters of anomalous gold mineralization with associated Carlin-type style trace elements. This mineralization occurs in iron oxide bearing silicified inter-layered silty limestones and dolomites. Immediately below the higher grade interval is an altered and gold-bearing mineralized intrusive, which has proven to be a key geologic relationship in the Pequop gold district.
