2014 News Releases

Sudbury, Ontario, November 3, 2014 – Northern Superior Resources Inc. (SUP:TSX.V) (the “Company” or “Northern Superior”) is  pleased  to provide  the  following summary of the  Company’s  2014  summer exploration program.

Highlights:

  1. Exposing one  of four  high grade gold shoots  within  the gold mineralized  Croteau-  Bouchard shear zone (CBSZ), with  the following distribution  of gold mineralization (See  Figure 1): a) two zones of > 10 g/ t Au, 2.5m x 2.0 m and 2.0m x 0.5m; b) enclosed by a halo of >5 g/ t Au, 7.0m  x 2.5m; and c) enclosed by a halo of gold mineralization  of >3 g/ t Au over an area of 8.0m x 3.0m.
  2. Defined the extension of the large, gold- bearing alteration  structural  corridor associated with the CBSZ on the property for an additional 9.8 km to the east.

The location  of the exposed  high grade shoot  in Trench 5 within the CBSZ was determined  through projecting its up- plunge orientation  to surface from  core hole drilling intersections.  The distribution  of gold- mineralization within the shoot was determined from samples collected from a detailed grid of channels cut  perpendicular to the trend (east- west) of the mineralization. This distribution does not include earlier grab samples  of 52.8 g/t Au, 58.8 g/t Au and 68.7 g/t Au previously collected from  the same zone (See  Figure 1 and Table 1). Other characteristics of this shoot are summarized in Table 2. There are at least three other such shoots  identified within the CBSZ from  core  drill programs  with similar or better grade characteristics.

The Company previously reported  significant gold mineralization  in both trench and drill hole intersections within the CBSZ (see  previous  press  releases).  However,  results  from  the 2014 reverse circulation drill program (see press release, May 7th, 2014) and follow-up summer mapping, prospecting and trenching programs on the  property now indicate that  the CBSZ is a part of a much larger gold- mineralized system.

The same structural and lithological components that are seen to control mineralization within the CBSZ have now been identified in the Target #2 (Trench 101), and Target #4 and #5 areas, 9.8 km east of the CBSZ (See  Figure  2 and Table 2).

Interpretations of proprietary airborne geophysical and structural  lineament  data further  tie the recent surface  mapping  and  trenching  results  to the geophysical  data,  which  extends  a  high  degree  of confidence to the continuity of structural zones on the property across areas where there is no outcrop or drill hole data.

It is important to note that the CBSZ shear-hosted,  lode gold- bearing system, also remains open along strike and is an order of magnitude larger (120- 150m wide vs. 5- 20m wide) than similar alteration/gold mineralized systems reported (and mined) to date in the Chibougamau- Chapais mining camp.

Northern  Superior has also defined the structural controls of the  mineralized system,  as well as the location of several potential  new areas of mineralization,  necessary to direct future  drill programs on the property.

Mineralization within the CBSZ is generated  by a combination of the following controls:

  1. Dilational  zones  generated  by  regional  east-  west  shearing  accompanied   by  reverse  thrust faulting and isoclinal folding;
  2. Physio-chemical and rheological controls  that  exist within  the  CBSZ at the contact between a series of felsic to intermediate  tuffaceous  sediments and basalt and gabbroic rocks; and
  3. The presence  of felsic intrusive dykes (feldspar porphyry dykes) that  act as loci for high grade mineralization within the CBSZ as seen in Trench 05 and reported  previously in drill holes testing the CBSZ.

Dr. T.F. Morris,  president  and CEO states: “We are very excited to have successfully exposed one of four high grade shoots  identified so far within the CBSZ. With 50 metre collar spacing from a limited number of drill holes  completed  to date within the CBSZ (44-holes),  the potential for more of these shoots certainly  exists.  As  a  result   of the 2014 exploration   program,  we  now   have  a  comprehensive understanding of the structural controls that exist on the property and recognize that the CBSZ is a small part of a larger system, as evident from  the  extension of the shear zone associated with the CBSZ a further  9.8 kilometres to the east.  The Company looks forward  to completing the compilation of all geoscientific data to identify specific drill targets for future  exploration in 2015.”

About Northern Superior

The Croteau Est property is one of four mineral properties that  Northern Superior is actively exploring. The other  three  properties  (Lac Surprise, Grizzly and  TPK) also  represent regional-  scale exploration programs, either 100% owned and operated by Northern Superior, or Northern Superior having the right to earn a 100%  interest  in the properties.  Exploration  to date  has  identified  numerous  drill- ready targets  for  gold, copper  and  silver mineralization  on  the Ti-pa-kaa-haa-ning (TPK) property  in northwestern  Ontario,  gold/ volcanic copper- zinc- silver and magmatic nickel- copper- platinum- palladium mineralization are targeted on the Grizzly property,  and shear- hosted gold on the Company’s Lac Surprise property, both located in west- central Québec.

The Company’s Qualified Person (“QP”) for the Croteau Est property is Ron Avery (P.Geo.). As the QP, Mr. Avery has prepared or supervised the preparation  of the scientific and technical information for this program and has verified the data disclosed in this press release.
