Northern Lights Resources Corp. ("Northern Lights" or the "Company") (CSE:NLR, OTCQB:NLRCF) is pleased to announce the assay results from the four prospect drill holes that have been completed and the results of a rock chip sampling program completed on the northern portion of project claims. The Company also is announcing the commencement of a property wide soil sampling program at Secret Pass Gold Project in Arizona and the Medicine Springs Project

Secret Pass - Rock/ Soil Sampling Program

From January to February 2021, Northern Lights collected 77 rock chip samples from the vicinity of old workings outside of the Tin Cup Zone as illustrated in Figure 1. The assays results show a high concentration of gold associated with historical workings controlled along a northwest trending series of rhyolitic dykes intruding andesite and granite gneiss (see Table 1).

Significant gold values occur in a strongly altered and fractured zone that extends from Sam's Ridge to Boomerang Lake, a distance of 4000 metres. Limited surface exploration has been undertaken in this favourable alteration zone.

Out of the total number of samples taken over 39 samples assayed over 0.5 grams per tonne gold containing 12 samples assaying over 5 grams per tonne gold containing 5 samples assaying over 10 grams per tonne gold. The highest grade sample assayed was 26.7 grams per tonne gold.

The rock chip samples were assayed at Skyline Laboratories in Tucson. Rocks were fire assayed for Au and Ag with a gravimetric finish with a detection limit of 0.005 and 0.1 grams per tonne respectively. A second sample split was digested in Aqua Regia and analyzed for a 49 element suite by ICP-MS.

On August 19, the company commenced a 900 soil sampling program over the entire license area at Secret Pass. Once collected the samples will be sent to SGS Laboratories in Burnaby, British Columbia for assay using Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) and interpreted at SGS Lakefield, Ontario. The soil sampling program is being completed on a 50m x 200m grid spacing.

Secret Pass Drilling Update

The Company has received assays from the four holes drilled at Secret Pass (Fiery Squid, Fluorspar Ridge, 9 Second Shaft) that were completed, from April to July 2021 as illustrated in Figure 2.

The two holes drilled at Fiery Squid encountered gold mineralization. The holes drilled at Fluorspar Ridge and 9 Second Shaft did not report any material gold mineralization.

Fiery Squid drill hole #1 encountered mineralization at a depth of 56.2 metres that assayed 9.09 grams of gold per tonne over a sample width of 0.90 meters. This intersection is associated with a thin fracture of manganese with the presence of small grains of visible gold as reported by the Company on May 5, 2021.

Drill hole #2 at Fiery Squid encountered three mineralized intersections with gold values associated with a hydrothermal breccia zone contacts in the upper portion of the hole. The reported assays from this zone included 1.92 g/t gold over 0.9 metres from 21.76m to 22.66 metres, 3.15 g/t gold over 1.0 metres from, 27.3m to 28.3m and 3.74 g/t gold over 0.9 metres from 29.4 to 30.3 m.

The Company has secured the services of a drilling contractor to complete the permitted drill program at the Tin Cup Prospect. Northern Lights is permitted to drill a total of seven holes at Tin Cup where historic reverse circulation returned grade intervals of up to 40 grams per tonne. Drilling at Tin Cup is planned to commence in Q4 2021.

Northern Lights CEO, Jason Bahnsen commented "While we were hoping for better results from the four prospect holes we drilled at Fiery Squid, 9 Second Shaft and Fluorspar Ridge, the outstanding surface sampling results highlight the presence of high-grade gold in the prospect areas drilled. These sample results, combined with our upcoming MMI soils program, which is now underway across the entire project area, will assist in building an overall geological model for the project and identify additional gold anomalies for future drilling. The Company is looking forward to beginning drilling at Tin Cup in Q4."

Medicine Spring Silver Project - JV with Reyna Silver Corp

The exploration program at Medicine Springs Silver Project in Elko County, Nevada, Reyna Silver currently has a team on the ground at Medicine Springs completing a rock sampling program focused on the identification of jasperoids for mapping the potential mineralization footprint on the project area. Approximately 700 samples are being collected across several previously identified anomalous areas.

Northern Lights is exploring the Medicine Springs Project in joint venture with Reyna Silver Corp. (TSX.V: RSLV) with Reyna having the option to acquire 75% of the project by completing total exploration expenditures of US$4 million (Northern Lights 25%).

Should You Invest in Silver Bullion? (Updated 2022)

Investing in silver bullion has pros and cons, and what’s right for one investor may not work for another.

Interest in the silver market tends to flourish whenever the silver price increases, with investors beginning to wonder if it is the right time to add physical silver to their investment portfolios.

While silver can be volatile, the precious metal is also seen as a safe-haven asset, similar to its sister metal gold. Safe-haven assets can protect investors in times of uncertainty, and with tensions running high, they could be a good choice for those looking to preserve their wealth in difficult times.

What Was the Highest Price for Silver? (Updated 2022)

Like its sister metal gold, silver has been attracting renewed attention as a safe-haven asset.

Although it continues to exhibit its hallmark volatility, many silver investors believe that a bull market is on the way for the precious metal. Experts are optimistic about the future, and as a result, some market watchers are putting forth price forecasts and asking themselves, “What was the highest price for silver?”

The answer reveals how much potential there is for the silver price to rise. Read on for a look at silver's historical moves, and what they could mean for both the price of silver today and the white metal’s price in the future.

When Will Silver Go Up? (Updated 2022)

It’s no secret that the silver market can be incredibly volatile. From September 2021 to September 2022 alone, the white metal has seen price levels ranging from below US$18 per ounce to US$26.50.

Many investors are confused by the precious metal’s movement. After all, silver is a safe-haven asset that generally fares well in times of turmoil, and the past year has been packed with tense geopolitical events alongside the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Russian-Ukraine war, increasing oil and gas prices and rising inflation have further heightened global economic uncertainty.

Unfortunately, answering the question, “When will silver go up?” is tricky. Even seasoned analysts can’t tell the future, and it’s difficult to find a consensus on the topic of when it will exit its bear market and enter a bull market.

Could the Silver Price Really Hit US$100 per Ounce? (Updated 2022)

The silver price made waves in 2020 when it rose above US$20 per ounce for the first time in four years. Despite volatility, theprecious metal has managed to stay securely above that level in 2022.

Nonetheless, well-known figure Keith Neumeyer, CEO of First Majestic Silver (TSX:FR,NYSE:AG), has frequently said he believes the white metal could climb even higher, reaching into the triple digits.

Neumeyer has voiced this opinion often, most recently in a March 2022 interview with Kitco. He put up a US$130 price target in a November 2017 interview with Palisade Radio, and has reiterated his triple-digit silver price forecast in multiple interviews with Kitco: one in March 2018, one at the top of 2020 and another in May 2021.
