Gold Property Summary

Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning Gold Property

In 2008, the Company completed an aggressive exploration program at the Ti-pa-haa-kaa-ning project, including two diamond drill programs, an extensive overburden sampling program, bedrock and overburden mapping and an orientation induced polarization survey. Based on this work, encouraging exploration results were issued in January 2009 and included the discovery of a new gold showing and several gold-bearing ductile shear zones at the head of the gold grain-in-till dispersal apron in the Big Dam area of the property. The new gold showing consisted of several quartz-veins hosted by granodorite that returned 3.34 grams per tonne gold and 8.9 grams per tonne gold, both over 0.34 metres. This discovery indicated the presence of gold-bearing bedrock structures in the area up-ice of the gold-in-till anomalies, indicating a close proximity to the significant gold mineralization required to produce the very large pristine gold grain concentrations in the till.

Thorne Lake Gold Property

During the fall of 2008, the Company signed an Agreement with Sachigo Lake First Nations which allowed the completion of an overburden sampling program designed to better define a gold-in-till dispersal apron discovered on the property. On January 26, 2009, the Company announced the discovery of three gold grain-in-till dispersal trains on the property, two of which are very similar to dispersal trains extending south from the Sachigo River gold mine. One 10.6 kg overburden sample collected from the Thorne Lake property during last fall's exploration program contained 476 gold grains, of which 454 were pristine.

Wachigabau Gold Property

On January 21, 2009, the Company signed an option and joint venture agreement with Matamec Exploration Inc. to explore for all commodities on the Wachigabau property in the Desmaraisville area of west-central Quebec, with a particular focus on gold and base metals. Under the terms of the Agreement, Northern Superior can earn 50% of all mineral rights on the Wachigabau project property by spending $500,000 (the timing of which is at the discretion of Northern Superior) over three years, among other requirements. A total of $75,000 had been spent as of the fall of 2008 on a ground magnetic survey. The Wachigabau property is underlain by structures and geology associated with gold mineralization in the Bachelor Lake gold mine located 10 kilometers to the west and also overlies geology and structures associated with the Lac Shortt gold deposit 4.5 kilometers to the northeast.
