OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 2, 2021 /CNW/ – Northern Shield Resources Inc. (“Northern Shield” or the “Company”) [TSXV: NRN] is pleased to provide an update on the drilling project currently underway at its Root & Cellar Gold-Silver-Copper Project (“Root & Cellar” or the “Project”) located on the Burin Peninsula in southeastern Newfoundland. The Company can earn a 100% interest in the Property, which is being explored for epithermal gold-silver mineralization and porphyry copper deposits. The Property covers over 300 square kilometres.
To date, 11 diamond drill holes totalling approximately 2,200 m have been completed, with a minimum of two more drill holes planned (Figure 1). Over 500 core and surface rock samples have been shipped for analysis with assays pending for all samples. Gold-silver telluride minerals were noted as inclusions in pyrite along with lead selenides in a sample from the Conquest Zone sent for mineral identification utilizing a scanning electron microscope (SEM).
“We are very encouraged by the multiple zones of pyrite hosted in a strongly chlorite and silica altered hydrothermal breccia that were intersected in the Conquest Zones. Some of these are very similar to samples recently collected on surface and we look forward to the assay results and the last few drill-holes.
Ian Bliss – President & CEO
This drilling program is being overseen by Christine Vaillancourt, P. Geo. and the Company’s Chief Geologist.
