Northern Vertex Announces Underground Channel Samples Return Consistent 1.5+ gpt Gold Equivalent Grades Over Broad Intervals at Moss Gold-Silver Project in Arizona

VANCOUVER, July 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX.V:NEE) (OTCQX:NHVCF) is pleased to announce additional assay results from historic underground workings at the Moss Gold-Silver project in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona. Channel samples were taken at 5-foot intervals across the 'back' (roof) of drifts and cross-cuts on the minus 60 level in the vicinity of the property's Allen Shaft.

States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson, "We are very pleased with current results from channel sampling at Moss. Assays continue to demonstrate excellent continuity of mineralization both along and across the Moss Gold-Silver structure. The consistent 1.5+ gpt gold equivalent grades returned further demonstrate the remarkable uniformity of the Moss stockwork vein Gold-Silver system both on strike and at depth. Establishing continuity of grades along tunnels (drifts) and sub-drifts will play an important factor in future mine planning and development."

Initial results from the main Office x-Cut and Main East and west drifts were previously announced (see NR June 26, 2012) .  Results from secondary drifts and X-cuts on the -65 level are as follows:
