VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Oct. 18, 2016)  Northern Empire (TSXV:NM) today announced assay results from rock chip-channel samples collected from the wall of the historically mined Democrat Pit, in the south western portion of Northern Empire’s Richardson Property, a district scale gold project located near Fairbanks, Alaska. The rock sampling program was part of a summer program conducted by Northern Empire at Richardson, which also included 1298 soil samples (with 10% QAQC), prospecting and 277 line km of geophysics.
Rock chip channel samples were collected in one-meter intervals across 130 meters of the exposed Democrat Pit face. Samples results varied from a low of 0.016 g/t Au to a high of 90.5 g/t Au, and from a low of 0.23 g/t Ag to a high of 512 g/t Ag.
Select interval assay values from the Democrat Pit rock samples are as follows:

  • 5.73 g/t Au and 29.8 g/t Ag over a sample length of 32 meters from 98 to 130 meters
    • Including 6 meters of 18.33 g/t Au and 48.95 g/t Ag from 106 to 112 meters
    • And 3 meters of 20.84 g/t Au and 32.1 g/t Ag from 127 to 130 meters
  • And 2.57 g/t Au and 39.3 g/t Ag over 6 meters from 31 to 37 meters

Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director of Northern Empire commented, “We’re highly encouraged by the results of the sampling and wish to congratulate our field crews and thank them for their hard work. Sampling of the Democrat Pit shows the mineralization remains open as the first and final rock chip samples collected along the 130 metre line returned values of 0.31 g/t Au and 0.35 g/t Au respectively. The Company is still awaiting final results from soil and geophysical surveys which will guide efforts in 2017.”
