About Us

Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSXV: NM) (OTC: PSPGF) is expanding and discovering heap leach gold deposits in Nevada. The Company presently has initial resource statements on four heap-leachable deposits at the 100%-owned Sterling Gold project, including the high-grade, fully permitted Sterling Mine. Using a 0.3 g/t cut-off the pit constrained inferred resources on the property total 947,000 with an average grade of 1.26 g/t Au. For further information on the Sterling Project, please refer to the technical report on the Sterling Project dated July 12, 2017, found on the Company’s website and SEDAR. The Company is well-financed and is aggressively drilling all four deposits in 2018 to increase resources and explore for new discoveries on the district-scale land package. Founders and management have a track record of increasing shareholder value through discovery, project development and M&A in leadership positions at success stories such as Newmarket Gold, Kaminak Gold, Underworld Resources and International Royalty Corp.

Northern Empire Completes Geophysical and Geochemical Surveys on Richardson Project Multiple Gold Mineralized Structures Identified

Vancouver, B.C. – November 7, 2016 – Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSXV: NM) (the “Company” or “Northern Empire”) today announced the results and interpretation of 277 line kilometers of ground magnetic geophysical surveys and 1297 geochemical samples (including 10% Quality Control) on the Richardson Project, located within the Fairbanks Mining District of Alaska. 

The geophysical survey validated the known Richardson lineament, and additionally, identified several north-northeast structures that the Company has recently identified as possible controls of high grade mineralization.  One of the geophysically identified structures coincides with recent sampling results, 32 m at 5.73 g/t Au from chip channel sampling as announced on October 18, 2016.

The compilation of this year’s geochemical survey and existing significant datasets generated by Northern Empire and previous workers, when combined with the geophysical survey, has defined several high priority targets. 

Anomalous gold values showed both a strong relationship with underlying structures defined by the 2016 Mag Survey as well as clear associations with pathfinder elements generally associated with the Intrusive Related Gold Model.  Maps showing the results of the geochemical and geophysical survey can be found on the Company’s website.  http://www.northernemp.com/projects/richardson/ .

Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director of Northern Empire commented, “The 2016 program at Richardson has exceeded our expectations.  Work to date has identified a 2,000 meter north-northeast  gold in soils anomaly with a coincident geophysical structural complex. An additional 2,000 meters of the geophysical signature is poorly covered by soil data. A second mineralized structure trending northwest has been identified with coincident elevated gold in soils over 1,000 meters with an additional 1,000 meters remaining to be evaluated.  We look forward to our 2017 program where we intend to follow up on the highest priority targets with drilling.”

Geochemical Survey Details

1297 soil samples were collected on the Richardson Project during the 2016 summer campaign. 10% of submitted samples were inserted QAQC samples (1166 soils, 52 blanks, 39 field duplicates, and 40 standards). All samples were delivered to ALS in Fairbanks, Alaska for preparation including drying and sieving to 80% passing 180 mesh. Prepared samples were sent to ALS in Vancouver or Reno and analyzed using ME-MS41W and Au-AA23 (fire assay).

Soils samples were collected at even depths using a power auger with all samples collected at 50 meter spacing along lines that varied from 100 meter spacing on established targets, to 600 meter spacing as a first pass over reconnaissance targets.

Magnetic Survey Details

The magnetic survey was conducted using GEM Systems’ GSM-19T proton precession magnetometers, operating in the WALKING data acquisition mode with a sampling rate of 1 second, along pre-programmed traverses uploaded to a WAAS equipped Garmin 64S handheld GPS unit for subsequent navigation, with the time clocks of both synced at the start of the day. The day’s data acquired was corrected for the diurnal variation of the earth’s magnetic field by comparison to data collected by a similar magnetometer set up as a stationary base, quality checked and stored. The final data set for the survey – a compilation of the many days of traversing – was subsequently sampled at a two-metre interval and smoothed using a low pass filter.

Richardson Project

The Richardson Project is an exploration stage gold project, held 100% by Northern Empire Resources Corp., located 115 kilometers southeast of Fairbanks and 40 kilometres northwest of Delta Junction in east-central interior Alaska.  Multiple gold targets have been generated at Richardson, including Democrat Pit, Shamrock, and Northwest Camp, which offer multi-million-ounce discovery potential within a 'drive-to' proven Alaskan gold province.
