Northern Superior drills 0.7m of 72.9 g/t Au at Croteau
NORTHERN SUPERIOR Resources Inc. has released results from the recently completed phase 2 drill program (October, 2017) at its 100per-centowned Croteau Est gold property in Quebec. Results from this drill program and those derived from a televiewer borehole survey on the phase 2 drill holes, will dictate the drilling strategy for a more extensive phase 3 program, intended to increase the existing inferred resource. Phase 2 drilling consisted of seven infill holes totalling 2,823.5 metres with an average depth of 403.4 m.
Highlights of the phase 2 drill program:
• High-grade intersections of up to 72.90 grams per tonne gold over 0.70 m;
• High-grade widths of up to 11.06 g/t gold over 9.10 m (including 43.75 g/t gold over 2.00 m);
• Mineralized widths of up to 1.99 g/t gold over 34.65 m (including 9.46 g/t gold over 2.35 m);
• Longitudinal and lateral continuity of mineralization from the current holes to Northern Superior’s previously completed holes;
• Identification of a second and important source of mineralization associated with flat-lying quartz veins that were untested by previous drill programs;
• Further evidence of high-grade mineralization occurring greater than 400 m vertical depth within the CBSZ was defined: 7.50 g/t gold over 7.95 m including 56.40 g/t gold over 1.00 m between 489.90 m to 497.85 m.

Dr. T.F. Morris, president and chief executive officer of Northern Superior, stated: “Results from the phase 2 drilling at Croteau exceeded our expectations beyond the originally intended goal of demonstrating structural continuity of mineralization associated with several high-grade, gold-bearing shoots known to be embedded within the CBSZ. We look forward to building on the success of the phase 2 program with the next phase of drilling.”
Phase 3 drill program
Phase 3 drilling has been initiated. The program will consist of approximately 14 holes or 4,700 m of core drilling. Drilling will focus on stepping out proximal to high-grade intervals and building on these results. The focus of the phase 3 drilling will remain on the upper 400 m of the currently defined inferred resource for the CBSZ in order to provide a coherent block model as a basis for an updated inferred resource calculation.
We seek Safe Harbor.
