OTTAWA, Sept. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern
Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce that it has identified
significant PGE-Ni-Cu mineralization on a new property, known as Q-1, it has
acquired, through staking, in western Ontario.
Northern Shield is in the process of conducting reconnaissance and due
diligence on numerous potential PGE and Ni-Cu-PGE targets and occurrences in
Ontario and Quebec as it awaits further results and exploration at Highbank
Lake, Wabassi and Faint Hope. A grab sample collected during reconnaissance of
one of these occurrences assayed 1.1 g/t Pt, 1.4 g/t Pd, 0.7% Cu and 0.1% Ni.
The sample was collected from a coarse-grained pyroxenite dyke, sill or
conduit. Follow-up sampling and mapping will commence next week. The property
is located near the Quetico fault and within a few kilometers of a highway.
The Quetico Fault has recently become important to PGE exploration as Magma
Metals Ltd's. PGE discovery near Thunder Bay, Ontario is located along this
fault zone. While Northern Shield continues to acquire and seek new PGE-Ni-Cu
properties and is very encouraged by the initial results from the Q-1
property, it remains focused on its flagship Highbank Lake PGE project in
Exploration was supervised by Christine Vaillancourt, a Qualified Person
under National Instrument 43-101. Rock samples were analysed by ALS Chemex
laboratories in Vancouver, B.C. for Au, Pt, and Pd by Fire Assay with ICP-AES
finish and 27 further elements by four acid digestion and ICP-AES.
Northern Shield is also pleased to announce it has engaged the
consultancy services of geologist, Mr. Jacques Babineau, to assist the Company
in acquiring new PGE projects. Mr. Babineau's 25 years experience in
exploration and project generation for Esso Minerals and INCO and his
knowledge of PGE and Ni-Cu-(PGE) environments applied to the definition of
high potential targets will be of great value to Northern Shield's continuing
acquisition of economically prospective grounds, specifically in Quebec.
