Northern Gold Intersects 5.47 g/t Au OVER 17.3 m at Jonpol Deposit
|Marketwire.com - Aug 29, 2013
TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 29, 2013) - NORTHERN GOLD MINING INC. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) ("Northern Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from 20 diamond drill holes from its surface diamond drilling program carried out on its wholly-owned Jonpol Deposit of the Golden Bear Project, 100 km east of Timmins, Ontario. The 20 drill holes totaled 5,984 metres.
Drill assay highlights for the drill holes include:
47.02 g/t Au over 0.75 m (108.60 to 109.35m) GGT-01
6.37 g/t Au over 3.00 m (328.0 to 331.0m) JP-13-09
5.23 g/t Au over 5.40 m (129.8 to 135.2m) JP-13-27
5.47 g/t Au over 17.30 m (84.0 to 101.3m) JP-13-28
Martin Shefsky, President and CEO of Northern Gold, comments: "These results continue to confirm the continuity and grades of the mineralized structures comprising the Jonpol Deposit. Eighteen of the 20 drill holes reported intersected significant gold mineralization, highlighted by a 17-metre interval grading over 5 g/t gold. Also, the potential for resource expansion exists with both the RP and JD Zones remaining open at depth."
Table 1 - Jonpol Assay Results * - These results are significant drill assays from 20 drill holes on the Jonpol Deposit. JP series drill holes are either infill into or step out from the known Jonpol Deposit resources while GT series drill holes are geotechnical holes designed to test ground or crown pillar stability.

Drill Holes GGT-01 and GGT-02 were geotechnical holes drilled along strike of the mineralization to test the ground stability of several cross faults that intersect the Jonpol zones. Both holes successfully intersected mineralization and the interpreted cross faulting. Drill hole JDGT-02 was drilled as part of a crown pillar support assessment in the JD zone west of the Jonpol mine shaft and portal. The geotechnical program was conducted in support of an ongoing closure plan development for the Jonpol mine. All geotechnical holes were drilled with HQ triple tube oriented core and geotechnical core logging was completed by Tony Gilman, M.Sc., P.Eng., of Terrane Geoscience of Halifax, NS.
JP-12-03, JP-13-07, and JP-13-08 were infill drill holes in the upper portion of the JD zone. JP-13-15 was drilled 50m below high grade intercepts in JP-12-04 (released March 26, 2013) and successfully intersected a broad zone of albite vein type mineralization along with minor visible gold similar to that intersected in JP-12-04. Exploration remains open down dip from this intercept.
JP-13-09 and JP-13-17 were drilled as infill holes in the JP Zone close to the existing underground workings; both holes intersected mineralization consistent with surrounding intercepts. JP-13-16 and 16a were designed to test the deeper extension of the JP zone but due to complications intersecting several strong fault structures the hole did not reach target depth.
Drill holes JP-13-12, 13, 14, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, and 28 were all drilled to infill the upper portions of the RP zone to the east of the Jonpol mine shaft and portal. Several of the holes intersected significant values and demonstrated good continuity with historical drilling on the RP zone. The RP zone is now being interpreted as the eastern continuation of the JP zone showing similar mineralogical characteristics. Exploration within the RP zone remains open to depth.
