Northern Lights Resources Corp. ("Northern Lights" or the "Company") (CSE:NLR)(OTCQB:NLRCD) is pleased to announce start of the 2022 exploration program at the Medicine Springs Silver Project ("Medicine Springs"), located in Elko County, Nevada, that the Company is exploring in joint venture with Reyna Silver Corp. (Reyna Silver
The 2022 exploration program at Medicine Springs will include a 5,000 to 7,000 metre drill program targeting the discovery of a large scale Carbonate Replacement Deposit (CRD) system. Drill permitting is underway and work is commencing immediately on additional field studies to further refine drill targets. Drilling is expected to commence in Q3/Q4 2022.
Norhern Lights CEO, Jason Bahnsen commented "We are delighted to have work underway at Medicine Spings leading to the upcoming 5,000 to 7,000 metre drill program. The Medicine Springs Project has the potential to host large scale CRD silver and base metals mineralizaton and we are looking forward to seeing the results of this initial drill program."
Under the terms of the Opton/JV agreement between Northern Lights and Reyna Silver, Reyna Silver are earning up to 80% of the Medicine Springs Project. Northern Lights does not contribute to project exploration expenditure until total exploration expenditures have exceeded US$4.0 million. (See the Northern Lights announcement dated October 5, 2020 for full details of the Option/JV agreement with Reyna Silver.)
In 2021, Reyna Silver conducted a Selective Jasperoid Sampling survey focused on the prominent NE trending, multi-stage jasperoids that cut across the property along the inferred principal hydrothermal fluid pathways. The results show zoning of Copper, Lead-Zinc, and Silver and are interpreted to indicate a multi-stage high-level mineralization center at depth. Comparison of the field data to Reyna's CRD continuum exploration model supports the idea that the full CRD spectrum is present within the Medicine Springs project area.
