Wednesday, Sep 06, 2017
Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield" or the "Company") (TSXV: NRN) is pleased to announce that its 2017 drilling program has been completed at the Company's Huckleberry property.  Nine holes totaling 3,201 metres were drilled, including one hole abandoned for technical reasons. Some core samples are already in process at the analytical lab and the remainder are in transit. Results and further details will be provided upon receipt and analysis of the assays. The drilling program was executed under the terms of the option agreement with South32 Limited, announced on June 7, 2016.

The drill-hole locations were selected to test the lateral and down-dip extent, as well as the nature of the Lower Olivine Websterite (peridotite) unit which is the principal host for the mineralization. Other drill-holes targeted surface mineralization in the Eastern Zone along with strong electromagnetic (EM) conductors.

The drilling program at Huckleberry was overseen by Christine Vaillancourt, P. Geo., a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
