Northern Empire Drills 123.93 meters of 1.41 g/t Gold at the Daisy Deposit; Sterling Gold Project, Nye County, Nevada

Vancouver, B.C. – Monday, February 26th, 2018Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSX.V: NM, USOTC: PSPGF) (the “Company” or “Northern Empire”) today reported drill results from the Company’s 100% owned Sterling Gold Project located in Nye County Nevada.

Hole ID From (m) To (m) Facies Length (m) g/t Au
D18-003C 67.88 191.81 all 123.93 1.41
 Including 134.97 173.22 oxide 38.25 3.09
 And 173.22 188.95 mixed 15.73 1.45
 And 188.95 191.81 oxide 2.87 2.48
  1. Fire Assays Reported
  2. Hole numbers ending in “C” are core
  3. True thickness estimated to be approximately 90-95% of interval length

Michael G. Allen, President and CEO, stated, “D18-003C is the first of at least 10 exploratory, resource expansion, and infill holes that we plan to drill into the Daisy Deposit as part of our 15,000-meter program.  The exceptional grade of these results is very encouraging. All of the mineralization from 67.88 to 173.22 meters down the hole was oxidized, as was the final 2.87 meters of mineralization. For the high-grade core of the deposit, where we cut 38.25 meters of 3.09 g/t gold, cyanide solubility assays averaged 90% of fire assay, indicating that the Daisy deposit may be amenable to open pit mining with heap leach recovery of gold. Based on the exceptional drill results to-date at the Sterling Project, the Company plans to mobilize additional drill rigs to the Project shortly. Currently rigs are working on the SNA and Secret Pass deposits. In addition, field crews are mapping extensions of the known deposits, as well as new targets within the Project.”

About the Daisy Deposit

The Daisy Deposit is located in the footwall of the Flourspar Canyon Fault and is the westernmost of the known deposits within the Flourspar Canyon Trend. It is a sediment-hosted gold deposit with a Carlin-type geochemical signature. The Daisy Deposit contains an inferred resource of 174,000 oz of gold at an average grade of 2.12 g/t Au.

Northern Empire owns three deposits with 43-101 resource estimates within the Fluorspar Canyon Trend: Daisy, Secret Pass, and SNA, which are part of the Crown block of claims within the 141 square kilometer Sterling Gold Project, which also includes the permitted Sterling Mine. Northern Empire intends to aggressively explore the Crown block due to the excellent potential for additional discoveries and potential to expand the existing resources.

Sampling and QAQC Procedures

Samples were submitted to ALS Global in Reno, Nevada. Gold grade was determined by Fire Assay with Atomic Absorption, and Gravimetric Finish as well as Cyanide Soluble methods. Most ALS geochemical laboratories are registered or are pending registration to ISO 9001:2008, and several analytical facilities have received ISO 17025 accreditations for specific laboratory procedures. Northern Empire inserts a series of standards, blanks and field duplicates into the sample stream as part of its quality assurance and quality control procedures which are continually monitored by the Company.
