RENO, Nev., Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NuLegacy reports that drilling has commenced on its flagship 108 sq km Red Hill property in the Cortez section of the prolific Battle Mtn-Eureka-Cortez gold trend of Nevada.
Drilling commenced on hole M23-01, the first of the planned five-hole winter 2023/4 drilling program, with a truck-mounted Ingersoll Rand RD-10 RC drill capable of drilling to 3,000 feet. With an initial targeted termination depth of 2,000 feet, it is expected to take 7/8 days to complete; the rig will then move to hole IS23-02 as per the plan map below: to enlarge drill map: https://bit.ly/p12-DrillTargetMap
“With this configuration of holes, the probability of drilling a discovery hole, or being close enough that the alteration and geochemical analysis from that hole will vector us in the right direction, is very good.” Nancy Richter, exploration team leader.
About NuLegacy Gold: NuLegacy Gold is exploring for high-grade Carlin-style gold deposits on its incredibly well located 108 sq. km (42 sq. mile) district scale Red Hill property. Red Hill is on trend/adjacentI to three of Nevada Gold Mines’ most profitable multi-million ounce Carlin-type gold mines; the Pipeline, Cortez and GoldrushII with their massive 50+ million ounces gold endowment. These are three of the thirty largest, lowest cost, highest grade, and politically safest gold mines, producing circa 3% of the world’s gold. Seven of NuLegacy’s principals/exploration team members have contributed to the discovery/expansion of one or more of Nevada’s seven massive Carlin-style gold deposits.
