Sudbury, Ontario, May 13th, 2020: Northern Superior Resources Inc.

(see Northern Superior press releases, May 4, 2020 and May 6, 2020).

The Company confirms that it has commitments for the sale of: (i) 3,703,704 charity flow-through shares (the “Québec Charity FT Shares”) priced at CAD$0.54 per Québec Charity FT Share raising $2,000,000 and (ii) 1,149,426 charity flow-through shares (the “Ontario Charity FT Shares”) priced at $0.435 per Ontario Charity FT Share raising $500,000 (collectively, the “Offering”).

As stated previously, the gross proceeds from the sale of Québec Charity FT Shares and the Ontario FT Shares will be used respectively, to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (“CEE”) that are “flow-through mining expenditures” (as such terms are defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) on the Company’s 100% owned Lac Surprise and/or Croteau Est properties in Québec (with respect to the Québec Charity FT Proceeds) and on the Company’s 100% owned TPK property in Ontario (with respect to the Ontario Charity FT Share proceeds), each of which will be renounced to the respective subscribers with an effective date no later than December 31, 2020, in the aggregate amount of not less than the total amount of the gross proceeds raised from the issue of Québec FT Shares and Ontario FT Shares and respectively.

Dr. Thomas Morris, CEO states: “I am very pleased with the strong support this financing has received from several new cornerstone investors. Post completion of this financing the company will have over $7 million dollars in its treasury and will have the financial flexibility to be able to fully fund exploration programs on all 3 of our key assets (TPK, Croteau Est and Lac Surprise). To have procured the capital that Northern Superior has over the last two financings is a remarkable endorsement of the Company’s assets and ability to advance them to the next stage. We look forward to building on this momentum through the initiation of a $3.7MM TPK core drill program in Ontario as soon as Covid-19 subsides and to use $2 million dollars of the funds to be raised in this financing to unlock the tremendous value associated with our Québec assets.”
