Toronto, Ontario, Canada, February 21, 2024 – Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SUP) (OTCQX: NSUPF) is pleased to announce the nomination of Kyle Stanfield, a seasoned sustainability expert, as the Chief Executive Officer of its spinout company, henceforth known as ONGold Resources Ltd. (“ONGold”), which will take ownership of Northern Superior’s Ontario assets, namely the coveted TPK Project, the October Gold Project, currently under an Earn-in and Joint Venture Agreement with Evolution Mining Limited (ASX: EVN) (see press release dated November 6, 2023), Thorne Lake, Rapson Bay, and Meston Lake. ONGold is the resulting issuer from the previously announced transaction between the Company and 1348515 B.C. Ltd. (See press releases dated July 10, 2023, and September 6, 2023.)

Mr. Stanfield brings over 25 years of extensive experience in mineral exploration and project development with a particularly strong focus on project planning, indigenous consultation and agreements, as well as regulatory engagement. Mr. Stanfield has worked collaboratively with over 30 First Nations and Métis communities in Ontario and British Columbia in support of mineral resource exploration and project development. Earlier in his career, he played a pivotal role at the Musselwhite mine in Ontario, one of Canada’s largest mines currently operated by Newmont Corporation, consulting with the five Musselwhite Agreement signatory First Nations. In British Columbia, he was instrumental in leading the operational launch of the Tahltan First Nation environmental joint venture including facilitating an environmental training program for Tahltan elders and youth at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, his alma mater. In recent years, Mr. Stanfield spearheaded environmental assessments, indigenous consultation and permitting programs for both the Rainy River mine, located in Ontario and operated by New Gold Inc., as well as Argonaut Gold Inc.’s Magino mine, which recently achieved commercial production, also in Ontario.

Simon Marcotte, President and Chief Executive Officer of Northern Superior, commented: “We look forward to Kyle becoming CEO of ONGold. His extensive experience working collaboratively with both indigenous communities as well as regulatory agencies to advance mineral development brings tremendous advantages to our group. The selection of a leader in this field of expertise for this role underscores our profound recognition of the critical role that social responsibility and meaningful indigenous consultation play in both the early exploration and subsequent development phases. We are confident that he can adeptly guide the team to navigate these stages, steadfastly upholding his principles while engaging with stakeholders across Ontario, where immense value can be unlocked with the right approach.” Kyle Stanfield, nominated Chief Executive Officer of ONGold, commented: “Embracing sustainability isn’t just about meeting regulations; it’s about building relationships, fostering trust, and leaving a positive legacy. I’m honored to be presented with the opportunity to lead ONGold in this pivotal moment, where we can merge innovation with respect for indigenous communities and environmental stewardship to shape a future where responsible resource development thrives. I am deeply grateful to the management and Board of Northern Superior for entrusting me with this role and for their visionary commitment to sustainability and social acceptability.”
