  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, “These results represent the first drilling into the SNA deposit by the Company. We are pleased with the results as they demonstrate that the deposit remains open for further expansion, and the mineralized intervals are slightly broader than modelled. Step out hole SNA18-012 demonstrates the deposit remains open for expansion.  The rig continues to drill Carlin-type exploration targets to the east and west of the SNA deposit as well as north towards the past producing Motherlode Mine.”



About SNA



The SNA deposit is the easternmost of the 3 deposits controlled by the Company within the Fluorspar Canyon trend. The SNA Deposit is an inferred resource totalling 126,000 oz grading 1.03 g/t Au at a 0.3 g/t gold cut-off*. SNA is described as a Carlin Type deposit hosted within Devonian Carbonates in the footwall of the Fluorspar Canyon Detachment Fault.



The SNA deposit is located approximately 400 meters to the south of the past producing Motherlode Mine, and may represent a southern extension of that mineralization. The SNA deposit is located approximately 4.6 km to the northeast of the Daisy Deposit where on February 28, 2018 the Company released the results of hole D18-003C, which returned 123.93 meters grading 1.41 g/t Au and is approximately 3.3 km northeast of the Secret Pass Deposit where on March 20, 2018 the Company released results from hole SP18-003C which returned 70.07 meters on 1.79 g/t Au.



Within the Fluorspar Canyon Trend, Northern Empire owns three deposits with NI 43-101 compliant resources*: Daisy, Secret Pass, and SNA, which are part of the Crown block of claims within the Company’s 141 square kilometer Sterling Gold Project. Within the Sterling Gold Project, the Company also controls the permitted Sterling Mine. Northern Empire intends to aggressively explore the Sterling Project to both expand existing resources and make new, additional discoveries.

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.
