Northern Gold Mining Inc. bulk sampling results

    Bulk Sample 1: 1050 kg. averages 11.44 g/t overall
    Bulk Sample 3: 155 kg. oversize and dust averages 16.94 g/t
    Total of the 3 Lots: 332 kg. oversize and dust averages 12.55 g/t

    TORONTO, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - Northern Gold Mining Inc. (TSX-V NGM) announces
results from its Fall 07 power-stripping and bulk-sampling program on its
Bourkes Mine property located in Benoit Township in north-eastern Ontario. The
Bourkes Mine is situated 22 kms north-west of the gold-mining camp of Kirkland
Lake, Ontario. The mine was in intermittent production from 1918 to 1947.
    The Fall 07 power-stripping and bulk-sampling program was proposed to
open the mineralized zone immediately north and south of the capped Bourkes
Mine shaft to confirm mineralization. A power-shovel stripped and exposed the
zone for 11 metres immediately north of the shaft and for 17 metres
immediately south of the shaft. The mineralized zone was visually continuous
for the entire lengths of the stripped area with irregular Quartz-Carbonate
Veins of widths of 20 cm. to hairline within 1 metre of a strong shear. Five
areas were chosen along the stripped length both north and south as
representative areas to blast for bulk sample collection. The certified
Polymet Labs, Cobalt was chosen to crush and assay the bulk sample.

    A total of 3051 kg. was collected overall to produce the following

    Bulk Sample 1:
    Fines = 977 kg. @ 11.40 g/t
    Oversize = 27 kg. @ 9.50 g/t
    Dust = 46 kg. @ 13.06 g/t

    Bulk Sample 2:
    Fines = 887 kg. @ 2.90 g/t
    Oversize = 28 kg. @ 1.28 g/t
    Dust = 77 kg. @ 8.50 g/t

    Bulk Sample 3:
    Fines = 854 kg. @ 3.16 g/t
    Oversize = 38 kg. @ 16.88 g/t
    Dust = 117 kg. @ 16.94 g/t

    The results confirm the presence of potentially economic gold
mineralization near surface at the Bourkes Mine and gives indication of a high
gold nugget factor for the Bourkes ore as previously suspected from historical
reports. This sample can not be considered representative of the entire mine
volume due to the relatively small area stripped in this program and small
volume of rock recovered. The Company is also contemplating an underground
de-watering and re-habilitation program to systematically test the Bourkes
Mine. In anticipation of dewatering and rehabilitation the company has filed
for an advanced exploration permit.
    The Bourkes Mine bulk sample was collected by a Company field crew, in
which material was blasted, hand loaded and sealed into barrels that were
subsequently same day delivered to Polymet Labs, a division of PolyMet
Resources Inc., P.O. Box 699, 1 Presley Street, Cobalt, Ontario, P0J 1C0,
Canada ( This material was subsequently crushed, split,
riffled and assayed by standard fire assay techniques in three work lots. Work
protocol ensures that all sampling circuits were previously cleaned & purged
of contaminants. Sampling of the lot fines was taken from a sampling tower
extracted subsample that represents 0.25% of the entire bulk sample lot.
    Results of this sampling program and the sampling procedures have been
reviewed by R.V. Zalnieriunas P.Geo. an independent consulting geologist who
is the "Qualified Person" as defined by NI 43-101 for this project.
