Northern Shield Stakes New Property Based on Séquoi Drill Program

OTTAWA, Jan. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield" or the "Company") [TSXV: NRN] is pleased to announce it recently staked a new property, containing 88 claims, in the Labrador Trough. The Company will primarily explore the new property for Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization.

In conjunction with the Company's main exploration programs in the region, a ground reconnaissance program will be undertaken on these new claims as soon as conditions allow. The Company's main exploration programs currently include further exploration at Huckleberry - funded under the terms of the South32 Option and Joint Venture Agreement (as per press release dated December 5, 2016), an intensive rock and till sampling program at Sé2 to prioritize VTEM targets for later drilling, as well as ground truthing of a VTEM anomaly at Idefix.

"The assay results from Séquoi are disappointing for us all; however, the presence of certain lithologies in one of the drill-holes directed us to stake this new claim block," says Northern Shield President and CEO, Ian Bliss. "We look forward to another active and exciting season as we aim to locate the source of the nickel and copper so prevalent in the nearby lake bottom sediment samples."

Northern Shield Resources Inc. is a Canadian-based company focused on exploring for platinum group element ("PGE") and nickel-copper-PGE deposits. The Company's management are known as leaders in grassroots exploration for Ni-Cu-PGEs, as well as their understanding of the magmatic systems that apply to such exploration.
