2017 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario, October 18, 2017,Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP) (OTCQB: NSUPF), is pleased to release the following summary of high grade gold and silver assay results from boulder sampling programs completed in 2010, 2011 and 2017 on the Big Dam portion of the Company’s 100% owned Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning (“TPK”) gold/silver/copper property in north-central Ontario. The reader is reminded that the Big Dam portion of the property contains a previously defined gold grain-in-till dispersal apron. This apron is directly associated with the boulder trains described in this release (see Northern Superior press release, June 21, 2010).

Highlights of the Big Dam Boulder Sampling Programs
- Assay results range up to 94.2 g/t gold;
- Assay results that range up to 190 g/t silver; and
- Numerous gold and silver targets have been identified.

Summary of Sampling Program:
1) Recovery of several highly anomalous gold-bearing boulders.
Of the 842 boulders sampled within the Big Dam portion of the TPK property (484 in 2010, 103 in 2011, and 255 in 2017):

  • Nearly two-thirds of the boulder samples (543 samples representing 64.5%) contained anomalous gold values (> 50 ppb gold);
  • 106 of the samples (12.6%) contain > 1.0 g/t gold; and
  • 3 of the samples (0.4%)  contain > 34.3 g/t (1 oz/ton) gold.

The highest gold assay values from each year of prospecting in the Big Dam area compare very favorably with the highest reported gold-bearing boulder assays associated with Agnico Eagle’s Meliadine gold property, which have proven and probable reserves of 3.335 million ounces of gold based on 13.94 million tonnes at an average grade of 7.44 g/t gold (see Agnico Eagle Mines “Updated Technical Report on the Meliadine Gold Project, Nunavut, Canada”, February 11, 2015, listed on SEDAR). Table 1 compares Northern Superior’s highest boulder assay results from the Big Dam area with those of the Meliadine gold property.

2) Numerous gold mineralization targets identified within the Big Dam area of the TPK property. Figure
1 shows the distribution of targets identified by highly anomalous gold-bearing boulders on the property.

3) Recovery of numerous highly anomalous silver-bearing boulders.
Of the 842 boulders sampled within the Big Dam portion of the TPK property (484 in 2010, 103 in 2011, and 255 in 2017):

  • 37 of the samples (4.4%) contain > 1 g/t silver;
  • 5 of the samples (0.6%) contain > 10 g/t silver; and
  • 3 of the samples (0.4%) contain > 25 g/t silver.

4) Numerous silver mineralization targets identified within the Big Dam area of the TPK property.

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “This press release is intended to complement the recently released TPK Annex boulder assay data (see Northern Superior Press Release, October 11, 2017). As reported previously for the Annex portion of the TPK property, numerous high quality gold and silver targets are also found in the Big Dam portion of the TPK property, as outlined by boulder sampling completed in 2010, 2011 and 2017.”

Dr. Morris further states: “Gold and silver mineral targeting will be further refined by combining the boulder assay data with: 1) till heavy mineral and geochemical data (associated with the Big Dam gold grain-in-till dispersal apron); 2) a re-evaluation of existing geophysical data; and 3) re-interpretation of the structural setting for mineralization on the property based on re-logging of drill core from 2010 and 2011 drill programs (see Northern Superior Press Release, September 14, 2017). Northern Superior looks forward to presenting these refined targets in the near future.”
