2017 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario, November 8, 2017,Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP) (OTCQB: NSUPF), is pleased to announce that it has completed evaluation of all geoscientific data derived from the Big Dam area, Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning (TPK) gold/ silver/ copper property, north-central Ontario. This exercise was critical in defining five high priority gold and silver mineral target areas (see Figure 1). All targets are associated with a large, district scale gold system that strikes at least 35km east to west across the Big Dam and New Growth parts of the TPK property (see Northern Superior press release, December 6, 2011). Thousands of gold grains (most pristine- indicating relative proximity to source) were glacially transported from the surface of the bedrock forming a geologically unique and very large gold grain-in-till dispersal apron (minimum 6km wide, 11km long; see Northern Superior press release, June 21, 2010). Embedded within this apron are several highly anomalous gold and silver-bearing boulder dispersal trains indicating multiple gold and silver targets (see Northern Superior press release, October 18, 2017).

Observations Critical in Defining High Priority Mineral Targets:

  1. identifying and properly measuring the orientation of mineralized shear zones previously undetected within historic drill core;
  2. identifying and establishing the orientation of key structures from the Company’s proprietary airborne magnetic and ground induced polarization surveys;
  3. tying the observations derived from (a) and (b) to the distribution and concentration of pristine gold grains in the gold grain-in-till dispersal apron;
  4. incorporating the gold and silver-bearing boulder dispersal trains into the targeting; and
  5. applying the Company’s general knowledge of gold emplacement mechanisms derived from observations of several gold discoveries already made within this area of the property (Table 1).

A diamond drill program of approximately 12,000m of drilling, or 40 holes (average length 300m), is proposed to test specific gold and silver targets and evaluate past discoveries within these five high priority areas. Northern Superior intends to initially drill Target Area #2, as it is the most prospective of all the targets. Drill priorities may change during the course of the drilling program, pending results.

Table 1. Summary of press releases highlighting key previous discoveries at the TPK property.

Note:These early discoveries were essential in progressing the exploration program within the Big Dam area to current status: highly prospective drill targets have been identified and are ready to drill.

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: Through the re-evaluation and integration of several layers of geoscientific data, five highly prospective areas (of many), within which gold and silver mineral targets are defined, will be drilled in the upcoming diamond drill program. These areas offer an exceptional opportunity to unlock the gold and silver potential of the Big Dam part of the TPK property. Additionally, Northern Superior looks forward to releasing further information on the highly prospective gold, silver, copper targets in the Annex portion of the TPK property when it becomes available (see Northern Superior press release, October 11, 2017).
