OTTAWA, Jan. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce that it has staked a new PGE prospect in Quebec. The property, which is located approximately 100 kilometers southeast of the town of Radisson, covers a 7 kilometer stretch of a peridotite dyke that has a total strike length of about 20 kilometers. The claims were strategically acquired in the middle portion of the dyke where the body widens and the rocks are zoned from a peridotite core to a gabbroic margin. Confirmation of claim registration is pending from the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources and Wildlife.
Very little known exploration for PGEs has been conducted on this portion of the dyke. An EM (electro-magnetic) survey is being planned for later in the winter.
Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval Northern Shield will issue 50,000 common shares to an individual as a finder's fee regarding the acquisition of the property and will issue a further 50,000 common shares to such individual on the second anniversary of the acquisition provided Northern Shield still maintains an interest in the claims.
Acquisition of the property was overseen by Christine Vaillancourt, Chief Geologist for Northern Shield and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
