Northern Superior discovers gold corridor at Lac Surprise, Quebec

Share this article

Northern Superior Resources Inc. [SUP-TSXV; NSUPF-OTCQB] has discovered a 3-km-long mineralized zone north and east of the recently discovered Falcon gold zone (FGZ) on its large, 100%-owned Lac Surprise property located within the Chapais-Chibougamau area of Quebec.

This new mineralized zone is defined from drill core assays derived from three drill holes completed during the company’s 2022 spring- summer drill program and two historic holes completed in previous drill programs.

The new holes include: LCS-19-003ext. (1.15 g/t gold over 9.5 metres); LCS-22-063 (0.43 g/t Au over 3.1 m); and LCS-22-064 (0.17 g/t Au over 74.0 m and 0.14 g/t Au over 35 m).

Historic holes include: LCS-20-019 (2.90 g/t Au over 3.0 m); and LCS-19-012 (0.12 g/t Au over 24.6m) [Roi Zone]. These holes outline a large and highly prospective mineralized trend over a strike length of 3 km within the regional scale Opawica-Guercheville Deformation Zone (OGDZ).

In addition, Northern Superior announced a 6,200-metre (20 core drill holes) 2022 Q4 drilling program on the Lac Surprise property. This program will focus on two areas: 1) 3,100 metres focused on the company’s FGZ to better define the distribution and nature of gold mineralization ahead of a potential maiden resource in 2023. The second area will consist of 2,000 metres of core drilling designed to better understand the gold potential of the new mineralized corridor now defined north of the FGZ. This will be accomplished by infill drilling within the upper part of the Falcon Zone, to provide confirmation of grades, leading to a maiden resource calculation in 2023 (3,100m).

There will be further exploration drilling on the Opawica-Guercheville Deformation Zone, concentrating on the area near the intersections in LCS-19-003ext, LCS-22-064 and LCS-20-019 (2,000m) and exploration drilling northeast of the Amber Showing, where diamond drilling in 2016 intersected 0.82 g/t gold over 11.55 metres.

Dr. Thomas Morris, President and CEO, stated, “The Lac Surprise property continues to deliver exciting results for our shareholders with the discovery of this large, new prospective area north of the FGZ, highlighted by an extensive strike length of over 3 km. The discovery holes highlighted in this press release warrant additional drilling to vector into areas of potentially higher-grade areas of gold mineralization within this trend. It is critical to remind the company’s shareholders that the recently discovered FGZ was discovered from similar reconnaissance core drilling activity initiated in 2019.

The planned 6,200-metre drill program at Lac Surprise will build on our understanding of the gold potential of the impressive FGZ where all 31 holes drilled thus far to define it encountered gold mineralization. In addition, this core drill program will also assist the ompany in determining the extent and gold mineral potential of the newly discovered gold mineralized corridor announced in this press release. The company feels strongly that the potential for additional robust zones of mineralization like the Falcon Gold Zone are present.”

The Lac Surprise gold property is one of three key mineral properties 100% owned by Northern Superior. The company’s two other properties (TPK and Croteau Est) also represent regional scale exploration opportunities.
