VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 6, 2021 / Northern Lights Resources Corp. ("Northern Lights" or the "Company") (CSE:NLR)(OTCQB:NLRCF) is pleased to announce an update to the ongoing core drilling program at the Tin Cup Prospect on the Company' 100% owned Secret Pass Gold Project in Mohave County, Arizona.

Drilling has been completed on two drill holes, TC21-02 (175 metre total depth) and TC21-03 (230 metre total depth). Drilling is continuing on the third hole, (TS21-04) currently at a depth of approximately 80 metres. The initial drill program of four holes at the Tin Cup prospect is expected to be completed in early December.

CEO, Jason Bahnsen, commented "Our initial 4-hole drill program at Tin Cup is going well and is expected to be completed in early December. Initial drill results are encouraging with strong mineralization evident in the drill core received to date. We have now dispatched the first hole to the assay lab and will release the results when received in early 2022."

The drill holes completed to date (TC21-02 and TC21-03) intercepted zones of moderate to strong mineralization within the altered andesite and rhyolite dikes. The mineralization of fracture fill and disseminated pyrite occurs within sections of moderate to strong hematite and propylitic alteration with weak to moderate sericite and silicification. Brecciated and gouge filled fault zones were encountered in both drill holes with disseminated pyrite present. Gold mineralization at the Tin Cup is primarily associated with the northwest trending structures and splays, predominantly in the andesite and margins of the rhyolite dikes.

The core samples from the first drill hole (TS21-02) have been sent to Skyline Laboratories in Tucson Arizona for assay.

Seven exploration drill holes have been approved at the Tin Cup Prospect (total 1,350 metres planned), see Table 1. Initially, 4 drill holes out of the permitted holes will be drilled (TC21-02, TC21-03, TC21-04, TC21-06), targeting the confirmation of historic high-grade mineralization that was identified by historic reverse circulation (RC) drilling in the 1980s.
