RENO, Nev., Oct. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — We are pleased to report that insiders and principals of NuLegacy have subscribed for/committed to 44.23 million units (C $1.1 million or 44.23%) of the Company’s non-brokered private placement of 100 million units at a price of C$0.25 per unit for gross proceeds of C$2,500,000, announced on September 12th, 2023 (the “Offering”). The initial closing of the Offering is scheduled for the last week of October 2023.
Our marketing will now focus on accredited investors, close friends and business associates with the final closing expected on or before November 14th, 2023.
Fall drilling program: We are starting this fall’s planned drilling program of five holes with “great expectations” that one of them will return a “discovery” intercept. Ms. Nancy Richter, our exploration team leader, expressed her view as,
“With this configuration of holes, we should either hit a good intercept or be close enough that the alteration and geochemical analysis1will vector us in the right direction.”

Field update: Under the supervision of our Exploration Manager, Mr. Charles Weakly, our logistics contractor (Legarza Exploration for road building, maintenance, etc.) started preparations as scheduled on October 10th, and our driller, Envirotech, will mobilize onto the property on or about the week of Oct. 30th, 2023; thus we expect the initial couple of holes to be ready for assaying (following logging and assay preparation) in mid-November just after closing the Offering.
