VANCOUVER, Aug. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX.V:NEE) (OTCQX:NHVCF) is pleased to announce additional underground channel sample results from the Moss Gold-Silver project in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona. Channel samples were taken at 5-foot intervals across the 'back' (roof) of the 1921 Hill No 2 X-Cut located 250 meters east of the Allen Shaft-Office X-Cut workings.
States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson, "These exceptional results demonstrate the potential for high-grade ore at Moss. A 24 m intersection of 4.9 gpt material provides excellent potential for higher grade averages and enhanced future profitability. When combined with results from the Allen Shaft-Office X-cut workings located 250 metres west, along strike of the deposit (NRs June26th and July 17th, 2012), an increasingly clear picture of grade consistency and continuity emerges."
