SUDBURY, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 23, 2019 / Northern Superior Resources (TSXV:SUP)(OTCQB:NSUPF) ("Northern Superior" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of a 12 hole, 4,400 metre (m) core drill program on its 100% owned Lac Surprise property in west-central Québec. A key purpose of this program is to confirm the western extension of the Renard Gold Trend from the neighboring Nelligan Property onto the northeastern part of the Lac Surprise Property.

Yesterday, both IAMGOLD and Vanstar Mining Resources Inc. ("Vanstar"), IAMGOLD's partner on the project, announced an initial 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate of 3.2 million inferred ounces of gold for the Nelligan Gold Project, (see IAMGOLD/Vanstar press releases, October 22, 2019).

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO states: "We are greatly encouraged by this recent announcement by IAMGOLD/Vanstar and the definition of 3.2 million inferred ounces of gold on their neighboring Nelligan Property. We look forward to reporting the results of our drill program once forthcoming assay results are received."

About the Lac Surprise Property

The Nelligan Gold Property is tied onto the northeast side of the Lac Surprise property. Vanstar describes the gold deposit on the Nelligan property as part of a "vast auriferous system offering a potential of multi-million gold ounces" (Vanstar PowerPoint presentation, May 2019).

Northern Superior believes, based on the following, that this gold system likely extends west onto the Lac Surprise property:

  1. Lithologies associated with the Nelligan gold deposit extending west onto the Lac Surprise property;
  2. Gold grain and gold geochemical-in-till dispersal trains defined, emanating from this lithological package on the Lac Surprise property;
  3. Gold showings discovered within this same lithological package, with grab samples collected from the Black Phoenix gold showing assaying as high as 19.9 g/t gold;
  4. Four west to east anomalous geophysical trends identified within this lithological package, defined from an induced polarization and magnetic survey completed in 2016; and
  5. Establishing that at least one of these anomalous geophysical trends is gold bearing, confirming that a hydrothermal gold bearing system(s) occurs within this part of the property: defined by a five core drill hole (1185m) program completed in 2016.
