Northern Gold Intersects 7.41 g/t Au over 6.5 m at Jonpol East Zone

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2013) - NORTHERN GOLD MINING INC. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) ("Northern Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the 34 diamond drill holes from its surface diamond drilling program on the East Zone of the Jonpol Deposit of the Golden Bear Project, 100 km east of Timmins, Ontario. The 34 drill holes totaled 8,370 metres.

Drill assay highlights for the drill holes include:
  • 7.41 g/t Au over 6.5m (74.5 to 81.0m) GAR-13-291
  • 4.52 g/t Au over 20.0m (103.0 to 123.0m) GAR-13-293
  • 5.73 g/t Au over 7.4m (49.0 to 56.4m) GAR-13-294

Martin Shefsky, President and CEO of Northern Gold, comments: "This phase of drilling successfully intersected an area of high grade mineralization with significant widths in the Jonpol East zone that had previously not been tested. The drilling also suggests that portions of the East zone remain open at depth, with possible mineralized extensions down plunge to the east. "

Jonpol East zone Sections 11+25W to 13+75W

Drill holes GAR-12-256 to GAR-12-259 and GAR-12-271 to GAR-12-283 were all drilled in the Jonpol East zone and targeted above 200m depth from sections 11+25W to 13+75W. These holes were designed to test mineralization along the footwall contact between the Munro Fault and mafic volcanic rock to the north, near where historical drilling had previously intersected gold mineralization. While most of the holes intersected the footwall contact and a persistent horizon of graphite/sulphide mineralization many of the gold values were low. Drilling below this location has proven successful at depth suggesting an apparent plunge east.

Drill Hole GAR-12-255 was collared within the Garrcon deposit and targeted the Jonpol East zone along section 12+25W at an approximate depth of 350m. This hole successfully intersected mineralization within the Garrcon North zone, the Green zone and in the deeper section of the East zone supporting the interpretation that the mineralization plunges moving east.

Jonpol East zone Sections 14+25W to 17+75W

Drill Holes GAR-12-284 to GAR-12-290 and GAR-13-291 to GAR-13-294 were drilled in the Jonpol East zone and targeted above the 200m depth from sections 14+25W to 17+75W. These holes were designed to test for gold mineralization within the Munro fault; many of the holes were successful at intersecting Albite type mineralization hosted in green carbonate schist within the Munro fault which is typical of the Jonpol East zone. Drilling along sections 17+25W 17+75W successfully intersected an area of high grade mineralization in holes GAR-13-291,293 and 294. This region had previously been untested. Several areas within the Jonpol East zone remain open at depth.

Munro Fault Sections

Two holes were drilled an additional 1000m along strike of the Jonpol East zone and targeted the Munro fault. GAR-12-265 and GAR-12-164X were drilled along section 1+50W and intersected the Munro fault but it was significantly narrower than further west. GAR-12-164X was an extension of a Garrcon deposit drill hole and targeted a deeper section of the Munro fault. Both holes intersected mineralization in the hanging wall meta-sediments along one of the Green zone horizons but failed to intersect any significant values in the Munro fault.
