With regard to Mr. Hetman and Mr. Parsons joining the Company, we are extremely pleased and excited to have both these individuals joining our staff. They both bring tremendous enthusiasm and experience which we know will complement well with our current, excellent staff. With the addition and re-organization of the Company’s management structure, Northern Superior is now poised to embark on its most exciting exploration year to date. The hard work completed through 2011 has identified and developed three exceptional gold projects to a point where the Company is looking forward, with tremendous anticipation, to the results of the planned 2012 drill programs. These projects include the Ti-pa-haa-kaa- ning, New Growth and Croteau Est gold properties.
