Northern Superior to Redefine Inferred Resource, Focus on High Grade Shoots, Croteau Est Property, Québec

/EIN News/ -- SUDBURY, Ontario, July 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SUP), reports that it will focus on redefining the inferred resource on its 100% owned Croteau Est property, in Québec. The decision is based on results from the Phase I drill program completed on the property during Q1 of 2017 (see press release, May 9, 2017). Northern Superior has allocated a budget of $1.2 million to facilitate Phase II of the program, for approximately 8,000m of core drilling.

Redefining the current inferred gold resource originally reported on January 14, 2016, will require a detailed evaluation of structural controls to determine and re-affirm specific emplacement mechanisms and characteristics of the defined high grade, gold-bearing shoots (orientation, dip and width) known to occur within the Croteau Bouchard Shear Zone (“CBSZ”) (see press release, November 3, 2014). This effort will include:

1) internal re-evaluation of all related geoscience data including the determination of gold grade times thickness intercepts (associated values ranging between 14.3 to 362.1, (refer to Table 1) from 19 core drill holes completed within the central part of the CBSZ; 50m collar spacing over 600m);
2) determination of structural orientation of quartz veins and intrusive dykes that host high grade gold intercepts through an optical televiewer survey;
3) determination of structural controls and emplacement mechanisms of high- grade gold- bearing shoots determined from a detailed, independent evaluation of all related geoscientific data; and
4) re-evaluation of the structural data will also incorporate structural data from the trench mapping and channel sample assay data derived from several trenches across the CBSZ mineralization (Trenches: 01, 03, 04, 05; Table 2). This data was excluded from the inferred resource determination, (see press release, January 14, 2016), however, Northern feels that it has great relevance in modelling the geometry of ore shoots that extend from surface (Croteau Trench-05; see press release, November 3, 2014) to depths in excess of 535m vertical depth (drill hole CRO12-54; Table 2).

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “There is far more opportunity to realize additional ounces of gold associated with the CBSZ by focussing on the high grade gold shoots than by considering the deposit as a whole, which presented a relatively low grade, open pit model. Focusing on the high grade, gold-bearing shoots presents an opportunity to consider an underground mining operation,  which is more in keeping with most gold mining operations associated with Abitibi-related gold mines such as the Sage Gold Inc., Clavos Deposit, the Integra Gold Corp, Lamaque Gold deposit and the Osisko Mining, Windfall Lake Deposit. This re-evaluation would not exclude some consideration for limited open pit development where appropriate. Once the additional structural information is compiled, this data will be used to target and determine the down-strike and plunge continuity of high grade mineralized shoots. An 8,000m core drill program will then be applied in the latter part of 2017. We look forward to reporting our findings prior to commencement of the core drill program.”
