Sudbury, Ontario, December 6, 2017,Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP) (OTCQB: NSUPF), is pleased to report the results of its August 2017 till sampling program on the Annex portion of the Company’s Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning (TPK) property. This portion of the property encloses one of two, district scale mineralized systems that are recognized for their gold, silver and copper potential (see Northern Superior press release, October 11, 2017).
The Annex portion of the property, like the 35km long, east-west striking, district scale gold system associated with the Big Dam and New Growth portions (see Northern Superior press release, December 6, 2011), is host to thousands of gold grains (most of which are pristine, indicating relative proximity to a bedrock source) which form the very large Keely Lake gold grain-in-till dispersal corridor (minimum 3km wide, 13.5km long; see Northern Superior press release, October 25, 2011; Figure 1). Embedded within this corridor are several highly anomalous gold, silver and copper-bearing boulder dispersal trains indicating a variety of multiple gold, silver and copper targets (see Northern Superior press release, October 11, 2017).
Geoscientific Information Critical in Defining High Priority Mineral Targets, Annex Portion, TPK Property
- recovery of large numbers of gold grains from multiple 10kg till samples of up to 1690 grains per sample, of which 99.5% are pristine (see Figure 2: gold grain values normalized to 10kg table feed).
- clearly defined cut offs of the head and lateral distribution of Keely Lake gold grain-in-till dispersal corridor (see Northern Superior press release, September 14, 2011; October 25, 2011; Figure 1).
- multiple well defined gold, silver and copper targets identified from the distribution and concentration of:
- gold, silver and copper- bearing boulders (see Northern Superior press release, October 11, 2017; Figure 3);
- gold grains, primarily pristine in shape; and
- till geochemistry.
- application of the Company’s knowledge of gold emplacement mechanisms derived from gold discoveries made previously by Northern Superior in the Annex area (see Northern Superior press release, June 26, 2012).

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “Similar to the work program recently completed in the Big Dam area(see Northern Superior press release, November 8, 2017), re-evaluation and integration of several layers of geoscientific data for the Annex area has identified 22 highly prospective targets where the potential for gold, silver and copper mineralization is seen to exist. The work to date indicates the potential for multiple targets in the Annex area and an exceptional opportunity to unlock the gold, silver and copper potential of the Annex area of the TPK property.
