Northern Empire Resources Corp. (TSX-V: NM) today announced results from seven holes drilled at the Sterling Gold Mine, located at Northern Empire’s 116 square kilometre Sterling Gold Property in Nye County Nevada.
Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director stated: “These results highlighted the shallow, high-grade oxide resources of the Sterling Mine. Several holes from this recent program hit significant mineralization at the edges of the resource model, indicating the deposit remains open for expansion. We consider the results to date excellent, and they will inform our follow up exploration in 2018.”
|Hole#||From (m)||To (m)||Interval (m)||g/t Au*|
|STR17-009C||No significant assay|
|STR17-040||Hole Deviated from Intended Target|
Hole numbers ending in “C” are core
