Northern Lights Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Northern Lights") (CSE:NLR)(OTCQB:NLRCF) is pleased to announce a summary of results achieved by the Company in 2020 and an outlook for 2021

While the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic has resulted in delays to permits and logistics associated with carrying out exploration work, during 2020 Northern Lights significantly advanced the Company's two flagship properties - the Secret Pass Gold Project in Arizona and the Medicine Springs Silver Lead Zinc project in Nevada.

Corporate Update

Northern Lights raised a total of $2.8 million during the year to fund project exploration and company overheads.

The Northern Lights team grew during the year with the addition of Project Geologist Paul Warren and the appointment of Shawn Balaghi as Manager of Investor Relations.

In December, Northern Lights listed and began trading on the OTCQB exchange. The OTCQB is expected to increase the Company's shareholding base in the US.

Project Update

1. Secret Pass Gold Project

During 2020, Northern Lights completed a Phase 1 Exploration program at Secret Pass. The Phase 1 exploration program included:

  • Evaluation and compilation of historic geological information into a GIS system.
  • Completion of drone aeromagnetic and photogrammetry mapping survey over the entire mineral claim area.
  • Reinterpretation of historic IP survey.
  • Geological and drainage mapping over entire mineral claim area.
  • Completion of 400 pan concentrate / screen concentrate sampling program over selected areas of alteration throughout the license area (assays pending). This survey will show background gold presence and highlight additional target zones.

In additional to the Tin Cup and FM Zones, Northern Lights has identified over additional 20 prospective targets for further exploration at Secret Pass.

Northern Lights is currently permitting the Phase 1 diamond drill program, 11 holes for a total 1,900 meters, at Secret Pass. The processing of the Phase 1 drill permits has been slowed by Covid-19 Pandemic but the Company expects to receive the required permits in the near future.

This initial Phase 1 drill program will focus on confirming the presence of high-grade gold mineralization identified by historic drilling and providing structural information as well as to test for the potential of continued mineralization at depth at Tin Cup.

Also, the Phase 1 program will include two holes at the newly identified Fiery Squid zone located approximately 2 km to the north of the Tin Cup zone. A historic grab sample from the dumps adjacent to the shaft at Fiery Squid yielded 6 g/t Au. The Fiery Squid zone is an intense sericite-altered, quartz-veined set of contacts developed between a swarm of rhyolite intrusions and host andesite situated in the middle of a 1000 x 500 metre zone of iron oxide alteration.

The Company is currently active preparing the workshop in Kingman Arizona that will be used for core cutting and logging.

Once drill permits have been granted, Northern Lights will immediately mobilize Altar Drilling from Tucson to the project site to commence the Phase 1 drill program. Secret Pass Project site is accessible year around for drilling and exploration activities.

2. Medicine Springs Project

The Medicine Springs Project, located in Elko County Nevada has potential to host a large-scale silver rich carbonate replacement deposit.

Work completed to date by Northern Lights on the Medicine Springs project includes an aeromagnetic survey, a 800 sample ionic soil geochemistry survey and detailed geological mapping. Northern Lights has identified a length of 3,000 m x 700m width silver zinc lead anomaly that will be a focus of upcoming drilling on the project.

On October 5, Northern Lights announced that it had entered into a Option/Joint Venture Agreement with Reyna Silver, a TSX.V listed exploration company. The geological team at Reyna Silver is led by Dr. Peter Megaw, a world-renowned geologist with proven expertise and track record of success in developing carbonate replacement deposits. Under the terms of the Agreement, Reyna Silver can earn up to 80% equity in the Medicine Springs Project by completing exploration expenditures of US$2.4 million and paying a cash payment of US$1m to Northern Lights by no later than December 31, 2023.

Northern Lights has a free carry for all project expenditures until Reyna Silver have spent a minimum of US$4 million on the project.

Chris Marcus: I'll be Stunned if Silver is Still Around US$25 in a Year

2021 kicked off on a strong note for silver, which enjoyed widespread attention and a price increase when the "silver squeeze" narrative grabbed mainstream media headlines.

What changed? Speaking to the Investing News Network, Arcadia Economics founder Chris Marcus said although it's turned out to be a historic year for silver, market manipulation has prevented further moves.

Marcus, who is also the author of the book "The Big Silver Short," pointed to comments from Jeff Currie of investment bank Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) and Rostin Behnam of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), saying they show how policies have been used to tamp down the price of the white metal.
