NORTHERN SUPERIOR AND ONGOLD ANNOUNCE CLOSING OF SPINOUT TRANSACTION RELATED TO TPK AND ONTARIO PROJECTS

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April 30, 2024 – Northern Superior Resources Inc.  (“Northern Superior“, or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP) (OTCQX: NSUPF) and ONGold Resources Ltd. (formerly 1348515 B.C. Ltd.) (“ONGold”) (TSXV: ONAU) are pleased to announce that further to the news releases dated July 10, 2023, September 6, 2023, and April 2, 2024, ONGold has completed the previously announced acquisition of Northern Superior’s mining projects located in Ontario (the “Transaction”) following receipt of conditional approval to list the Common Shares (as herein after defined) on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”). It is anticipated the common shares of ONGold (the “Common Shares”) will begin trading under the symbol “ONAU” on the TSXV on May 3, 2024 (the “Trading Date”), subject to final approval of the TSXV.

ONGold has now completed the Financings (as hereinafter defined) for gross proceeds of $5.2 million and escrow release conditions of the ONGold Subscription Receipt and Finco Subscription Receipt (both as hereinafter defined) have been satisfied resulting in the issuance of 10,108,843 Common Shares. The Financings and subsequent conversions into Common Shares resulted in a deemed issue price of $0.51 per Common Share.

The Transaction was undertaken pursuant to the letter agreement (the “Letter Agreement”) dated July 10, 2023, between Northern Superior and ONGold. Following the closing of the Transaction, ONGold now holds a 100% interest in the Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning Project (the “TPK Project”), the October Gold Property (“October Gold Project”), as well as certain other exploration properties (collectively, the “Ontario Assets”) previously held by Northern Superior.

As result of the Transaction, Northern Superior now holds 35,686,686 Common Shares of ONGold or 72.35% of the issued and outstanding Common Shares.

Simon Marcotte, Chief Executive Officer of Northern Superior, stated: “The spinout of the Ontario Assets will allow Northern Superior and ONGold to unlock the considerable value of these world-class assets. Based on the Financings completed, the value of Northern Superior’s 72.35% interest in ONGold is $18.2 million, and we see a great opportunity for value creation as ONGold advances the TPK Project and deploys its Ontario strategy. ONGold is now well-funded and led by a highly experienced management team. Northern Superior will remain a strategic shareholder and support ONGold in the execution of its ambitious strategy.”

Rodney Barber, President of ONGold, added: “We are very pleased to have completed this transaction as we believe it is the first step to unlocking the value of the Ontario Assets. With a dedicated management team, we will be able to focus our time and attention on the large portfolio of assets in highly prospective geological environments. We are committed to working closely with our First Nations partners such that we uphold the highest standards of Indigenous consultation and work hand in hand to deliver economic opportunity and development to the communities at our projects.”

Financings

As previously announced on April 2, 2024, the escrow release conditions of all 5,882,356 subscription receipts (the “ONGold Subscription Receipt”) of ONGold have been satisfied and the proceeds from the purchase of the subscription receipts have been released from escrow (the “ONGold Financing”). As a result, the subscription receipts have converted into a total of 5,882,356 Common Shares in the capital of ONGold for gross proceeds of $3,078,605.56.

As previously announced on March 8, 2024, ONGold’s wholly-owned subsidiary 1462356 B.C. Ltd (“Finco”) closed its first tranche of its non-brokered private placement financing through the issuance of an aggregate of 3,575,901 subscription receipts of Finco (each, a “Finco Subscription Receipt”) at a price of $0.51 per Subscription Receipt for gross proceeds of $1,823,709.51 (the “Finco Financing”, together with the ONGold Financing, the “Financings”).

Today, ONGold and the Company are further pleased to announce that Finco has closed its final three tranches of Finco Financing through the issuance of an aggregate of 650,586 Finco Subscription Receipts for gross proceeds of $331,798.86. Together with the subscription funds representing the proceeds of the first tranche of the Finco Financing and interest thereon, ONGold received aggregate gross proceeds of $2,157,543.10 from the Finco Financing.

The Finco Subscription Receipts issued pursuant to the Offering automatically converted, without payment of any additional consideration or further action on the part of the holder thereof, into one common share in the capital of Finco (each, a “Finco Share”), as the satisfaction of certain conditions precedent have been met. The Finco Subscription Receipts were created and issued pursuant to, and are governed by, the terms and conditions of a subscription receipt agreement dated March 1, 2024 (the “Subscription Receipt Agreement”) between ONGold, Finco and Endeavor Trust Corporation, in its capacity as subscription receipt agent and escrow agent.

The net proceeds derived from the Financings will be used by ONGold to fund exploration and development of ONGold’s mineral properties, as well as for working capital requirements and other general corporate purposes. ONGold paid certain eligible persons (each, a “Finder”) a finder’s fee of $25,160.94 in cash, and 43,382 warrants payable upon closing of the Financings. Each finder’s warrant is exercisable for one Common Share at $0.51 for 2 years following the Trading Date.

The securities distributed pursuant to the Offering have not and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 or any U.S. state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States unless the securities have been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933 and any applicable state securities laws, or in compliance with the requirements of an exemption therefrom.

The Transaction

In connection with the Transaction, ONGold has changed its name from “1348515 B.C. Ltd.” to “ONGold Resources Inc.” (the “Name Change”).

Following the closing of the Offering and issuance of the Finco Shares, ONGold, Finco and 1477825 B.C. Ltd. (“BC Subco”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of ONGold, completed a three-cornered amalgamation under the laws of the Province of British Columbia, pursuant to which Finco shareholders (including former holders of the Subscription Receipts) received one Common Share in exchange for each Finco Share held, and Finco and BC Subco amalgamated (the “Amalgamation”). Immediately following the Amalgamation, the resulting entity, 1478091 B.C. Ltd. (“Amalco”) became a wholly owned subsidiary of ONGold.

The TPK Project

The TPK Project is a gold-silver-copper mineral exploration property, located in northwestern Ontario.  The TPK Project is comprised of 2,431 post-conversion cell claims covering an area 47,796 hectares within a highly favourable geological setting. The TPK Project hosts two large independent mineralized systems and is situated in Nibinamik First Nation and Neskantaga First Nation traditional territories.

Big Dam and New Growth Areas

The first gold-bearing area is contained within the Big Dam and New Growth areas of the property and is a laterally extensive mineralized shear system stretching 35 km across the southern portion of the property. Several phases of exploration have seen a property-wide airborne magnetometer survey completed, extensive surface till sampling and boulder tracing, prospecting, limited induced polarization (IP) and diamond drilling of 29,577 metres in 139 shallow holes.

Exploration Highlights in Big Dam Area

  • Discovery and definition of the gold grain-in-till dispersal apron: defined as 6 km wide by 11.5 km long, with gold grain-in-till anomalies up to 1263 grains per 10 kilogram till sample (see Northern Superior Resources press release, May 15, 2019). The size and scope of this dispersal train (one of the largest in North America) suggests multiple bedrock sources.
  • Discovery of several gold-bearing boulder dispersal trains returning gold assay values of up to 94.21 g/t Au.
  • Discovery of significant gold-bearing mineralization:
    • Drill hole TPK-10-004 returned 25.9 g/t Au over 13.5 m, including 46.0 g/t Au over 0.5 m,  139.4 g/t Au over 1.7 m, 749.0 g/t Au over 0.3 m and 127.0 g/t Au over 0.7 m (see Northern Superior Resources press release, February 27, 2018)
    • Drill hole TPK-11-013 returned 4.74 g/t Au over 6.8m, including 15.52g/t Au over 1.50m and 33.90g/t Au over 0.50m (see Northern Superior press release, April 13, 2011)
    • Drill hole TPK-13-030 intersected 59.60g/t Au, 92.30g/t Ag and 3.19% Cu over 0.50m
  • Discovery of eight gold-bearing shear/alteration zones, hosting up to 20 m wide intervals of anomalous gold values within envelopes of alteration and/or shearing within the Freure Lake Batholith (see Northern Superior Resources press release, May 15, 2019).

Annex Area

The second gold-bearing system is contained within the Annex area of the property. This system is defined by a gold grain-in-till dispersal corridor. As with the Big Dam dispersal train, the size of the anomaly and the distribution of pristine grains suggests multiple bedrock sources.

Exploration Highlights in Annex Area

  • Mineralized boulders returned assay values of up to 727 g/t gold, 111 g/t silver, 4.1% copper (see Northern Superior Resources press release, June 25, 2012).
  • Drill hole NG-12-003C returned grades of up to 4.62 g/t gold over 5.5 m, including 20.8 g/t Au over 1.0m (see Northern Superior Resources press releases, June 25 and 26, 2012).
  • Drill hole NG-12-005C intersected 13.40 g/t Au over 1.90m (see Northern Superior Resources press releases, June 25 and 26, 2012).

The October Gold Project

The October Gold Project is a district scale property consisting of 1,281 claims covering an area of 265km2 located in northeastern Ontario, 105 km southwest of Timmins and within the Swayze Greenstone Belt. The property is accessible via an all-season highway and network of forestry roads. This property is situated approximately 35km northwest of IAMGold’s Côté Lake project and approximately 50 km southeast of Newmont’s Borden Lake mine.

The October Gold Project is in the traditional territory of the Flying Post and the Chapleau Cree First Nations. The October Gold property is thought to occur on a western extension of the Cadillac-Larder Lake break, straddling an approximate 15 km portion of the Ridout Deformation zone. Aside from a favorable structural association for gold mineralization and close proximity to an operating gold mine and a second in development, evidence for economic gold potential associated with the property includes widespread anomalous gold values from surface sampling (up to 11.50 g/t, obtained by NSR) and previous diamond drilling and two strong gold soil gas hydrocarbon anomalies (1.5 km x 3.0 km and 2.0 by 2.0 km).

In October 2021, a multifaceted exploration program was undertaken to define drill targets including: i) initial geological mapping; ii) prospecting; iii) rock sampling and channel sampling program; iv) property wide LiDAR survey; v) surficial (Quaternary) geological mapping; vi) orientation biogeochemical and geochemical survey; and vii) a detailed property wide helicopter magnetic survey.

From August to October 2022, reconnaissance geological mapping and prospecting were carried out by NSR. Anomalous gold values up to 0.65 g/t were found in three new areas and the historic Woman River Showing was located and sampled, yielding assays up to 11.50 g/t Au. Also, grab samples from the southwestern part of the property assayed up to 0.55 g/t Au, 1650ppm Cu and 4100ppm Zn, in separate samples. These results suggest the property is prospective for both gold and base metal deposits. Consequently, ground magnetometer surveys were completed in two areas: the South Benton grid for 176.45 line km and the Mallard West grid, for 132.55 line km. In addition, 4 diamond drill holes were drilled, for a total of 853m to better understand the geology around the Ridout Deformation Zone. Although intervals of sericite and silica alteration and pyrite mineralization were encountered, no significant gold assays were returned.

Option to Evolution Mining

On November 6, 2023, Northern Superior announced that it had granted Evolution Mining Limited an option to acquire a 75% undivided interest in the Company’s October Gold Project (the “Option”) by incurring an aggregate of $7 million in expenditures and making cash payments totaling $1.1 million.

Other Properties

ONGold holds a 100% interest in additional Properties in northwestern Ontario, known as Rapson Bay, Thorne-Ellard and Meston Lake.  Together, these comprise 2,334 cell claims, covering 43,791 ha.

Work on these properties by Northern Superior in 2011/2012 consisted of an airborne magnetometer survey, till sampling, geology, prospecting, limited induced polarization (IP) surveys and diamond drilling. This work was highlighted by the intersection of 0.83 g/t Au, 3.07 g/t Ag, 0.55% Cu and 0.028% Mo over a core length of 52.5 metres, including 1.83 g/t Au, 6.65 g/t Ag, 1.08% Cu and 0.059% Mo over 18.0 metres in hole WB-11-008C on the Rapson Bay Property (Norther Superior news release, Jan. 11, 2012).
