Northern Shield Resources Identifies and Stakes Vast Layered Intrusion Target in James Bay Lowlands

    OTTAWA, Nov. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern
Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce that it has identified and staked
what management believes to be a vast layered intrusive complex in the James
Bay Lowlands of northern Ontario. The property, which is owned 100% by
Northern Shield, currently covers an area of 700 square kilometres and staking
    The target is approximately 1000 square kilometres and is located
immediately adjacent to the Highbank Lake intrusion, which is being explored
by Northern Shield and Impala Platinum Holdings Ltd. for reef-hosted PGEs.
Identification of this possible layered intrusion called "Eastbank" by
Northern Shield is based on management's interpretation of the regional
magnetics and understanding of the regional structure. The magnetic bands of
the new target appear to merge with the layered intrusion at Highbank Lake
suggesting that the area may be underlain by a very large layered intrusive
complex composed of two lobes: the Highbank Lobe and the Eastbank Lobe (the
new property), which combine to cover an area over 1,500 square kilometres.
The fold pattern and magnetic signature suggest that the Eastbank lobe is
likely dominated by mafic-ultramafic rocks that commonly compose the lower
stratigraphy of a layered intrusion which are ideal targets for reef hosted
PGE-(Cr) and Ni-Cu-PGE deposits. (See Northern Shield's website for images of
the target).
    Northern Shield has also staked two distinct magnetic anomalies on the
fringe of Eastbank that have been interpreted as possible ultramafic bodies
with potential to host Ni-Cu-(PGE) massive sulphides.
    According to geological maps of the area, the Eastbank Target is covered
in most part, if not completely, by a thin layer of Paleozoic rocks
(limestone, sandstone), estimated to be about 75 meters thick. Both Highbank
Lake and the Eastbank target are located along a major terrain boundary that
forms the southern limit of the Oxford-Stull Geological terrain. This terrain
hosts an unusually high number of mafic-ultramafic intrusions that are very
fertile in PGEs including Big Trout Lake, Lansdowne House, Eagle-One (Noront
Resources Ltd.) and Highbank Lake. Following on the encouraging drill results
from the 2007 drill program at Highbank Lake, Northern Shield is looking
forward to continue its aggressive exploration of the Highbank Lake Intrusion
and the Eastbank property.

    Northern Shield is planning a winter exploration program at Eastbank
including an airborne geophysical program at the earliest opportunity.
