Northern Gold Reports Channel Samples at Buffonta

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 12, 2014) - NORTHERN GOLD MINING INC. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) ("Northern Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of its summer field exploration program. During the field season of 2013 (May to October) the Company was active in exploring surface gold showings on several of its properties. This press release highlights the results from channel sampling at the Buffonta property, located south of the Garrison Project.

Buffonta Property (#5 Zone)

In 2013 the Company excavated the surface outcrop of the Buffonta #5 zone to complete geologic mapping and channel sampling. The Buffonta #5 zone is a shear hosted deposit along the Buffonta Turner fault. The zone has a known strike length of over 150m and has been traced at depth to over 120m. The #5 zone hosts a historical resource of 140,988 tonnes @ 4.82g/t (21,860 oz. Au)1. A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical resource estimate as current mineral resources nor is the Company treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources. Additional confirmatory drilling would be required to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource. A table of highlighted surface channel sample results from the #5 Zone are shown below:

Channel IDs Grade (g/t) Length (m)
B53-3 3.86g/t 1.0m
B54-1,2 5.21g/t 2.4m
B55-1,2 2.55g/t 2.9m
B56-4 3.31g/t 1.2m
B58-1,2,3 4.69g/t 3.1m
B59-4 2.26g/t 1.1m
B513-1,2,3 3.16g/t 3.1m
B514-1,2 2.68g/t 2.0m
B515-1,2,3,4,5 8.98g/t 5.1m
B516-1,2,3,4,5 14.09g/t 5.1m
B517-1,2 9.96g/t 2.1m
B517-7 2.46g/t 1.0m
B519-1,2,3 5.35g/t 3.0m
B520-1,2 3.54g/t 2.0m
B522-1 46.20g/t 1.0m
B523-1 21.40g/t 1.0m

Buffonta Property (Elbow and Roadside Zones)

In 2013 the Company excavated two additional surface outcrops to complete geologic mapping and channel sampling. The two zones are near to but not directly related to the #6 and #5 Zones on the Buffonta property. These two new zones the Elbow and Roadside have shown anomalous gold tenures and locally higher grade gold mineralization. A table of highlighted surface channel sample results from the Elbow and Roadside Zones are shown below:

Channel IDs Grade (g/t) Length (m)
BR5-2 1.36g/t 1.0m
BR6-3 1.50g/t 1.0m
BR7-3 2.38g/t 1.2m
BR8-1 1.83g/t 1.2m
BE-3 8.00g/t 1.0m

A map of channel results is shown on the Company's website at:

Martin Shefsky, Interim President and CEO of Northern Gold, comments: "This initial surface exploration work demonstrates near surface opportunities for higher grade mineralization, and will be a focus for a future drilling program."
