VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 6, 2017) - Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NM) (the "Company" or "Northern Empire") today announced filing "NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Richardson Gold Project, Richardson Mining District, Alaska".
The report was authored by independent Qualified Persons, R. Bob Singh, P. Geo, Curtis J. Freeman, P. Geo as well as the Company's Chief Geologist William Cronk, P. Geo.
The report is available on the Company's website at the following link http://northernemp.com/_resources/technical_reports/NM_2017_01_03_43-101_FINAL.PDF as well as under the Company's profile on www.sedar.com.
Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director of Northern Empire commented, "The technical report is the summary of the work to date on the Richardson Project. On a modest budget, our 2016 program made significant progress on the project in form of discovering new, and expanding known, geochemical and geophysical anomalies, as well returning significant gold assays from rock and chip samples. Assays from rock chip channel samples collected in continuous one-meter intervals across 130 meters returned high grade gold in bedrock, including 5.73 g/t Au over 32 meters. The structures hosting this gold mineralization are traceable with geophysics for several kilometres. We look forward to an exciting 2017."
The Richardson Project is an exploration stage gold project, held 100% by Northern Empire Resources Corp., located 115 kilometres southeast of Fairbanks and 40 kilometres northwest of Delta Junction in east-central interior Alaska. Multiple gold targets have been generated at Richardson, including near ready drill targets at Democrat Pit, Shamrock, and Northwest Camp, which offer multi-million-ounce discovery potential within a 'drive-to' proven Alaskan gold province. Recent work in 2016 utilizing bedrock geology samples, soil geochemistry and tight ground geophysics, has established the veracity of these targets as first order priorities for immediate followup in 2017, as well as other new targets identified within the 2016 exploration program.
