2011 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario (December 19, 2011) Northern  Superior Resources  Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce  that  visible gold was intersected  at four intervals within  two of six drill holes completed  thus  far during the Company’s fall drilling program on its Croteau Est gold property, Chibougamau Mining District, west‐central Québec.

This now makes five locations  where the Company has identified  visible gold within the 120 m wide Croteau‐Marco deformation and alteration corridor. The first visible gold occurrence within  this corridor was previously reported from the mineralized Marco shear zone in Trench‐ 03 where a channel sample adjacent  to the visible gold occurrence returned  92.57  g/t gold over one metre  (see press release October 12, 2011). Both the Marco and Dede shears occur in all four trenches completed over the Croteau‐Marco deformation and alteration corridor defining a strike length of 330 m for these two these shear zones, which remain open along strike (see press release September 21, 2011).

Visible gold was intersected  at three different  locations  within  drill hole  CRO11‐05,  collared 10.0 m east and 125 m south of the gold bearing zones that  were reported previously in Trench‐ 01 (Dede Zone 3.23 g/t gold over 12.3 m and  Marco Zone 2.11 g/t gold over 11.0 m‐ averaging equivalent of 1.9 g/t gold over 33.8  m, see press release September  21st,  2011).  Visible gold was intersected  within  three milky white quartz veins: the first between 173.90 to 175.0 m (1.1 m intersection), the second between 182.6 and 188.5 m (5.9 m intersection) and the third within a centimeter vein at 240.15 m (all widths are not true widths).

Visible gold was intersected  at 28.4 m and was observed along the margin of a 3 cm wide quartz vein within drill hole CRO11‐06. This drill hole was collared 50 metres west of CRO11‐05. (Note: samples have been slabbed and submitted  for assay).

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “To have discovered rock bearing visible gold at five locations along a strike length of 125 metres so early in our fall exploration programs is very exciting. Although we do not understand the relationship and geometry  of these gold occurences yet, we look forward to continuing our drill program on this property to better define and extend these zones, open along strike in both directions and at depth. The Company’s 2012 winter drill program will also test new targets to the east of these discoveries along this fertile deformation  and alteration  corridor which extends 8 kilometers across the Croteau Est gold property to the adjacent Gwillim gold mine (see press release August 24, 2011). It is important for our shareholders to understand that the Croteau Est gold project is one of three important  and exciting exploration programs that  Northern Superior Resources will be focused on through 2012.”

Figure 1. Location of completed and proposed diamond drill holes for the 2011  fall diamond drill program, trenches through overburden to bedrock. Trenches uncovered two mineralized shear zones (Marco and Dede) that were traced 330 m across all four trenches. These zones are open along strike, both directions.

Within CRO11‐05 the upper milky white quartz vein (173.90  to 175.0 m) is hosted within a mineralized (approximately  5% pyrite) carbonated  and silicified schist unit. Visible gold specs are present  along both contacts of the vein containing approximately one percent disseminated pyrite and trace chalcopyrite. The second vein located (182.6 to 188.5 m) is also hosted by a mineralized (approximately 5% pyrite) carbonated and silicified schist unit containing short intervals of highly altered porphyry dike  above and below the vein. The visible gold is present at several locations within micro fractures of the quartz vein which also contains  approximately  5% pyrite and chalcopyrite. Gold grains are generally less than  1.0 mm in size although larger spcecs occur. The third vein (centimeter  thick, 240.15  m) is part of a zone extending from 240.0 to 248.0 m that  consists of quartz veining in a carbonate sericite schist with up to approximately 2% disseminated pyrite.

Within CR011‐06  the  quartz vein which the  visible visible gold is associated with (28.4 m) crosscutts a strongly sericitized and silicified quartz porphyry dike. This porphyry dike was intersected in the hole from 18.0 to 35.1 m, however, the veining and silicification is strongest  between 26.0 to 35.1 m: a 9.1 m intersection that also contains approximately 2 % disseminated pyrite.

The current diamond drill program is part of a planned 25 hole, 5,000  m program that  Northern  Superior intends to complete by the end of the second quarter 2012. Northern Superior operates the Croteau Est property under an option agreement (see press release, August 23, 2011).

The Company’s Qualified Persons (“QP”) for the Croteau Est gold property are Donald Boucher, P.Geo. and Michel LeBlanc, P.Geo. As QP’s, Mr. Boucher and Mr. LeBlanc have prepared or supervised the preparation of the scientific or technical information  for this program and has verified the data disclosed in this press release.

About Northern Superior Resources Inc.

Northern Superior is a junior exploration company focused on exploring for gold and diamonds in the Superior  Province  of the  Canadian  Shield.  The  Company  is  actively  exploring  for gold  within  two important  gold districts: the Stull‐Wunnimun  in Ontario and the Chibougamau in Quebec. The Company has a number of 100%  owned properties (see Company web site, www.nsuperior.com) within these districts that  were identified and developed from the Company’s extensive geoscientific data base and from which additional gold exploration projects are being generated. The Company is currently seeking to option‐out a number of these properties.
