OTTAWA, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern
Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce that it has completed an airborne
VTEM over its Faint Hope gold project in northeastern Ontario. The survey was
completed by Geotech Airborne Ltd. at 150 metre spaced lines and totaled 171
line kilometers. Further modeling of the data is underway.
The property is being explored for Homestake or Eleonore-style gold
mineralization and is located on an unexplored regional lineament which may be
a continuation of the Casa-Berardi Fault. A very distinct gold anomaly occurs
in till samples directly south of the property in association with
arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite (copper). Northern Shield also intersected
several gold anomalous boulders while drilling a kimberlite target nearby in
"Although we remain focused on our PGE projects, the Homestake-style
geochemical signature emanating from the property which covers a large,
distinctive target merited further investigation," explains Northern Shield
President and CEO, Ian Bliss.
