Northstar Gold Intersects Additional Near Surface High Grade Gold at Miller Gold Property

May 28, 2021

Northstar Gold Corp. is reporting additional fire assay and metallic screen results from drill hole MG21-56 at the Company's 100%-owned Miller Gold Property, situated 18 km southeast of the town of Kirkland Lake and Kirkland Lake Gold's Macassa SMC gold mine.

Partial results from drill hole MG21-56 in the Allied Syenite Gold Zone include:

  • 6.6 g/t Au over 117m between 14m and 131m encompassing the Veins 1 - 4 zones, including 175 g/t Au over 0.6m (previously released) between 14m and 14.6m, 24.9 g/t Au over 1.5m between 43m and 44.5m, and 1,170 g/t Au over 0.5m between 69.5m and 70m depth (previously released) in drill hole MG21-56 within the Allied Syenite. - See Table 1 for complete assay results.

These results include metallic screen analysis of two samples with previously released fire assays (Northstar News Release dated May 4, 2021) hosting spectacular gold-telluride vein intercepts in the Vein 2 and Vein 3 zones grading 175 g/t Au and 1,170 g/t Au respectively. A total of 143 sample assay results are pending for the lower portion of drill hole MG21-56 and 295 sample assay results are pending for drill hole MG21-55, drilled 80 metres to the south.

During the period March 15th - April 27th, 2021, Northstar drilled 1,990 metres (8 holes) in a Phase IIA program following up the 2020 near-surface bulk-tonnage Allied Syenite Gold Zone discovery (2 holes), near-surface confirmation drilling of the historic gold-telluride No. 1 Vein (2 holes) and 4 holes targeting geophysical and machine learning anomalies. Mineralized intercepts were obtained in all 8 Phase IIA drill holes. It is regrettable the Company is experiencing chronic COVID-19-related delays receiving results from the assay lab. Northstar will continue to report assay results as they become available.
