2022 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario, April 5, 2022, Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP), is pleased to announce the initiation of a 2,450 line-km drone-supported magnetic geophysical survey over its district scale (210 claim, 10,722 hectare) 100% owned Wapistan property, strategically positioned within an emerging and important mineral exploration region in the James Bay Lowlands, Québec (Figures 1 and 2).

This survey covers approximately 32 km strike length of a major structure developed in an Archean-aged volcanic-sedimentary package (Figure 2) and is critical in advancing our understanding of the geology of the property, assisting in:

  • Understanding the relationship between the 13 various showings discovered thus far on the property (see Figure 3, Table 1) to local bedrock structure and lithology;
  • Identification of highly prospective areas for the discovery of additional mineralization; and
  • Planning future exploration programs to capitalize on highly prospective areas of mineralization

identified from the geophysical data and/or data review.

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “Results from various prospecting programs have delivered very encouraging results, showing the potential for multiple deposit types. This high-resolution drone-supported survey is critical to enhance this information and plan our property-scale bedrock mapping and prospecting programs scheduled for the summer of 2022. The 100% owned Wapistan mineral property is an underexplored and regionally strategic mineral exploration property, with excellent nearby infrastructure, within Northern Superior’s exploration property portfolio.”

The Wapistan Mineral Property

The Wapistan property has the potential to host one or more of the following Archean mineralization styles:

  • Orogenic gold mineralization (Au-Ag±Cu);
  • Ortho-magmatic base metal mineralization (Ni-Cu-Co-PGE);
  • Iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) mineralization (Fe-Cu±U);
  • Copper porphyry mineralization (Au-Ag-Cu-Zn); and
  • Banded-Iron formations (Fe).

The volcanic-sedimentary rocks that make-up the 32km structure captured within the Wapistan property host multiple gold and other precious metal occurrences (Figure 3, Table 1) in rocks similar to those associated with the Roberto Deposit (Newmont Corporation, producing since 2014) and the Eau Claire Gold Deposit (Eastmain Resources Inc.), also located within this emerging mineral exploration and mining region.

The prospecting programs completed over two weeks in the fall of 2018 lead to the discovery of four new mineral showings (see Northern Superior press release January 29, 2019). The potential of the property is highlighted by excellent gold, silver, copper, zinc and lead assays including (Table 1): 1.42g/t gold over 1m (channel, ThreeGold Zone A); 15.4g/t silver over 3.05m (chip, Lac Shabudowan); 7.09% copper over 3.05m (chip, Lac Sabudowan); 760g/t nickel (grab, Poplar); 5.87% zinc over 0.61m (channel, Anomalie 3-40); and 0.55% lead over 0.61m (Channel, Anomalie 3-40).

Figure 1: The Wapistan property is situated within an emerging and important mineral exploration region in the James Bay Lowlands, Québec, hosting several recent mineral discoveries and developments.

Figure 2: Area covered by the current, high-resolution UAV, drone supported magnetic survey. The survey includes 2,450 line kms flown between 15- 30m above ground level. The area is easily accessible by highway with hydro lines either crossing the property or in proximity to it.
