Sudbury, Ontario, July 16, 2019,Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP; OCTQB: NSUPF), is pleased to announce that it has completed the previously announced drone supported, airborne magnetic survey over its 100% owned Lac Surprise property, Québec.
Results from this survey will be integrated into the current geoscientific data base. The focus will be on the northern part of the Property, to further demonstrate the:
- westward extension of IAMGOLD Corporation’s (“IAMGOLD”) gold deposit defined on their Nelligan Property, tied onto the northeast side of the Lac Surprise property (see Figure 1) (see IAMGOLD press release, May 30, 2019); and
- potential for an economic gold deposit on the Lac Surprise property. Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. (“Vanstar”), IAMGOLD’s partner on the project, describes the gold deposit on the Nelligan property as part of a “vast auriferous system offering a potential of multi-million gold ounces”, (Vanstar PowerPoint Presentation, May 2019).
Northern Superior has already presented evidence that this “vast auriferous system” likely extends west onto the Lac Surprise property, by identifying and discovering:
- Lithologies associated with the Nelligan gold deposit extending west onto the Lac Surprise property;
- Gold grain and gold geochemical-in-till dispersal trains defined emanating from this lithological package on the Lac Surprise property (see Northern Superior Resources press release, January 27, 2014);
- Gold showings discovered within this same lithological package, with grab samples collected from the Black Phoenix gold showing assaying as high as 19.9 g/t gold (see Northern Superior Resources press release, February 6, 2019);
- Four west to east anomalous geophysical trends identified within this lithological package, defined from an induced polarization and magnetic survey completed in 2016 (see Northern Superior press release, March 9, 2017); and
- Establishing that at least one of these anomalous geophysical trends is gold bearing, confirming that a hydrothermal gold bearing system(s) occurs within this part of the property: defined by a five core drill hole (1185 metre) program completed in 2016 (see Northern Superior press release, March 9, 2017).
Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “Northern Superior is extremely pleased with the opportunity to advance our understanding of gold mineralization and demonstrate the potential for an economic deposit of gold on the Lac Surprise property. Gold mineral targets within the northern part of the Lac Surprise property will be selected from a review of the geophysical information derived from this drone-supported survey, combined with all other scientific information previously acquired for this part of the property. It is anticipated that these targets will be tested by a core drilling program beginning in the fall of this year.”
Dr. Morris further states: “The Nelligan gold deposit is associated with the northern contact between volcanic rocks to the north and sedimentary rocks to the south. Note that not only does this contact extend across the northern part of the Lac Surprise property, but so does the southern contact (sediments to the north, volcanic to the south). The Fox Showings were discovered along this contact, indicating the potential for a second target for additional gold mineralization associated with this lithological package within the confines of the northern part of the Lac Surprise property. This Property becomes even more compelling with the numerous showings and gold bearing shear zones identified within the southern part of the Property (see Northern Superior press releases, February 17 and October 5, 2015).
Lac Surprise Property
The Lac Surprise property is 100% owned by Northern Superior. This property is strategically situated within a very active part of the Chapais-Chibougamau exploration camp. This point is emphasized by IAMGOLD’s disclosed core drilling results from their Nelligan gold JV project (Figure 1; see IAMGOLD press release, May 30, 2019). The Nelligan property adjoins the northeastern side of Northern Superior’s Lac Surprise property. Several showings and gold-bearing structures have already been defined on the property (Figure 2; see Northern Superior press release, February 6, 2019).
