Northern Gold Reports Hastings Channel Samples at Garrison Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 10, 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 channel sampling at the Hastings Zone, which is located on the western side of the Garrison Project.

Garrison Gold Property (Hastings Zone)

As announced on Sept 10, 2013 the Company acquired 20 patented mining claims that adjoin the western portion of the Garrison gold property from Lac Properties Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corp.

The Company's summer exploration program focused on surface mapping and channel sampling of the Hastings Zone; an underexplored high grade gold showing in the central portion of the recently acquired Lac Properties ground. The showing occurs in a similar Temiskaming type sedimentary host rock as the Garrcon deposit which lies 1800m to the east. The Hastings showing is a liner quartz vein and vein arrays striking north and steeply dipping. The vein system is open along strike to the north and along its southern extent is interpreted as terminating along the Destor Porcupine Fault. The mineralized vein system was traced on surface for over 120m and shows mineralized widths from 0.7 to 2.1m. A table of highlighted surface channel results are shown below:

Channel IDs Grade (g/t) Length (m)
H13-4 2.29g/t 0.7m
H14-4,5 3.47g/t 1.9m
H16-3,4 20.56g/t 2.1m
H17-4 3.23g/t 1.0m
H111-3 3.23g/t 0.7m
H113-3 4.14g/t 0.8m
H28-3 2.59g/t 1.2m
H211-3 12.0g/t 0.8m
H212-1 22.0g/t 0.6m
H213-2 4.74g/t 1.0m
H215-3 19.75g/t 1.0m
H216-3 8.04g/t 1.0m
H2S1-2 2.82g/t 1.0m
H2N1-1 5.00g/t 1.0m
H2N2-1 2.54g/t 1.0m

Martin Shefsky, Interim President and CEO of Northern Gold, comments: "The acquisition of the Lac property provides considerable upside exploration potential. These channel samples demonstrate that the Garrcon type metasediments could host additional stockwork mineralization going west, and will form the basis for additional future exploration in this area."
