Northern Shield Provides Update on Exploration Drilling to Commence on Tempest Target

OTTAWA, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield") (TSXV: NRN) is pleased to provide an update on the exploration at Northern Shield's Storm Claim Group in the Wabassi area, northern Ontario. The Storm Claim Group, which is owned 100% by Northern Shield, consists of six claims blocks identified as Tempest, Typhoon, Blizzard, Squall, Gale and Monsoon.

The VTEM survey over the Wabassi Joint Venture property and over the Storm Claim Group is now complete and interpretation is on-going. Numerous VTEM anomalies are apparent within the Wabassi Joint Venture Property and Storm Claim Group. Of particular interest is a series of moderate to strong VTEM anomalies on Northern Shield's 100% owned Tempest property (part of the Storm Claim Group) that coincide with magnetic features. Such characteristics are typical of Ni-Cu-PGE deposits. Northern Shield has completed a ground pulse electromagnetic (PEM) survey over the strongest and largest target identified from the VTEM survey over Tempest property. Interpretation and modeling of both the ground and airborne data is on-going, but the results to date clearly indicate a strong conductor with an estimated strike length of 500-800 meters and a thickness of up to 215 meters. The top of the conductor is estimated to be at approximately 125 to 200 meters below surface.

Northern Shield originally intended to undertake a 1600 meter drill program at the Highbank Lake property in the summer which was delayed as a result of forest fires in the area. Due to the compelling nature of the geophysical target at Tempest, management prioritized the Tempest target for drilling. As such, Northern Shield will test this target on the Tempest property with two drill-holes (approximately 1000 meters) in early October. On completion of the drill program at Tempest, the drill will be moved to Highbank where one drill-hole will be undertaken in order to meet assessment requirements.

The drill program will be overseen by Christine Vaillancourt, Chief Geologist for Northern Shield and a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
