Northern Empire Commences Exploration Program On Richardson Project, Alaska

Vancouver, B.C. – July 11, 2016 – Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSXV: NM) (the “Company” or “Northern Empire”) today announced the commencement of an exploration program on the Company’s wholly owned Richardson Project, located in the Richardson gold district near Fairbanks, Alaska. 

The first phase “Phase 1” of the 2016 exploration program has been budgeted at approximately $500,000 over a period of 6 weeks.  Phase 1 will consist of approximately 500 soil samples, 300 meters of trenching, prospecting, 100 line kilometers of ground magnetic surveying, four line kilometers of Induced Polarization surveying, and re-logging of historic core holes, with the goal of delineating drill targets. 

Highlights from Northern Empire’s 2015 exploration program at Richardson include:

Rock grab samples from outcrop in the Democrat Pit zone assays including:

  • 71.2 g/t Au and 48.6 g/t Ag
  • 4.6 g/t Au and 111 g/t Ag
  • 2.0 g/t Au and 233 g/t Ag
  • 5.88 g/t Au and 6.09 g/t Ag
  • 1.78 g/t Au and 67.3 g/t Ag

2015 soil sampling discovered anomalies that will be followed up by trenching in this year’s program. Additional soil work will be done to expand existing targets and also to define new targets, for potential drill testing.

Richardson Project

The Richardson Project is an exploration stage gold project, held 100% by Northern Empire Resources Corp., located 115 kilometers southeast of Fairbanks and 40 kilometres northwest of Delta Junction in east-central interior Alaska.  The 113km2 property has seen significant exploration work in the past with 3,654 rock samples; 3,542 soil samples; 39 core holes; 52 RC holes; trenching; and bulk sampling, completed by previous operators.  This work has identified multiple gold targets at Richardson, including the large gold footprint targets at Democrat Pit, Shamrock, and Northwest Camp, which offer multi-million ounce discovery potential within a 'drive-to' proven Alaskan gold province.
