2011 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario (September 21, 2011) Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that visible gold was observed while channel sampling a quartz veined alteration zone with disseminated pyrite in Trench-3 of the Croteau Est Gold Property, currently under option. Channel sample assay results from the first trench 80 m west of the visible gold occurrence returned 1.9 g/t gold over 33.8 m.   These shear structures are associated with the Dede gold showing where several grab samples returned gold values from 2 to 15 g/t gold (see press release, August 23rd, 2011).

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “We are very encouraged from the results of this first phase of exploration on the property. Observations to date suggest that there is excellent potential for a gold-bearing system within the property. Mineralized shear structures observed thus far are contained within a wide (~2.0 km) deformation corridor of stacked and en echelon shear and alteration zones which includes the well-known Faribault Fault which may be associated with the Gwillim Mine located 8.0 kilometers to the east which the Croteau Est property ties onto. Trench-1 is located 1.0 kilometres south of the original Croteau Est gold showing, on the south side of a major shear zone where intense deformation and alteration was observed over a width of 120m.”

These reported assays from Trench-1 are derived from two mineralized zones consisting of <1% up to 8% pyrite, ±chalcopyrite and ±arsenopyrite. Channel samples from zone 1 (Dede zone) returned 3.23 g/t Gold over 12.3m, the second zone (Marco zone) returned 2.11 g/t Gold over 11.0m. When both the Dede and Marco zones are combined with the low but gold bearing material between the two zones an assay of 1.93 g/t Gold over 33.8m is derived (see Table 1).

Within a very short period of time, 24 trenches have been excavated through the overburden exposing altered and mineralized shear zones. The four trenches over the Dede and Marco zones cover a strike length of 330m and is open in both direction. Twelve hundred bedrock channel samples have been collected and submitted for geochemical analysis. A dipole-dipole IP geophysical survey has been complete and results are pending. A ground magnetic survey is in progress and the Company intends to commence diamond drilling on the property shortly after all assays are received and geophysical survey interpretation completed. Drilling is expected to start during the fourth quarter of 2011.

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.
