North­ern Su­pe­rior drills 0.7m of 72.9 g/t Au at Croteau

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Dr. Thomas Morris re­ports

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.
