VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2022 / Northern Lights Resources Corp. (“Northern Lights” or the “Company”) (CSE:NLR)(OTCQB:NLRCF) is pleased to announce an update to the exploration plan for the Tin Cup prospect at the Company’s 100% owned Secret Pass Gold Project in Mohave County, Arizona.

Following on from the success of the initial four holes completed, Northern Lights is planning to expand the exploration program at Secret Pass to include the drilling of three (3) additional holes at Tin Cup and two (2) drill holes at the FM Zone, which is located approximately 500 metres east of Tin Cup. All five (5) proposed drill holes are fully permitted. The drill holes statistics and significant intersections for the first four drill holes are sumarized on Table 1. The location of the recent drill holes and the planned drill holes for Tin Cup and the FM Zones are illlustrated on Figure 1.

Prior to initiating the second phase of drilling, Northern Lights is planning to complete a deep penetrating Induced Polarization (IP) survey over the claim area covering the Tin Cup and FM zones. This survey will explore to depths of ~400 metres and will assist in refining existing targets and identifying new drill targets associated with zones of high chargeability located along strike and to depth. With reference to Figure 1, the IP survey area will cover the gold anomay generated from the soil sampling program completed in 2021. This soil survey identified a significant gold soil anomaly approximately 1,100 metres in length and up to 400 metres wide as shown on Figure1.

Northern Lights CEO, Jason Bahnsen, commented “The initial drilling at Tin Cup has been very successful and has confirmed the presence of wide zones of gold mineralization. The next phase of drilling will test the Tin Cup mineralization at depth and further along strike. We also have two holes permitted to drill at the FM Zone where we are targeting vertical vein structrues similar to Tin cup. The proposed holes are fully permitted with drilling to commence pending financing and availability of drilling contractors.”

The first four drill holes completed at Tin Cup showed confirmation of gold mineralization from surface to a maximum depth of approximately 90 metres. The three additional holes planned have been fully permitted and will test the down plunge extension of the gold mineralization. With reference to Figure 2, drill hole TC21-06 is planned for 400 metres at a 55 degree dip to test the mineralizaton at depth. The other two drill holes TC22-07 and TC22-08 will test the mineralization along strike.

At the Tin Cup zone, drilling at depth will test the potential for an epithermal quartz vein system similar to the Oatman District. The geology of the Tin Cup zone shares similarities of the upper parts of the Oatman gold system. The Secret Pass drilling will target both the upper broad zone of stockwork veining and the deeper, more discreet ‘bonanza’ veining.

The drilling at the FM zone will target near-vertical mineralized structures related to the FM fault zone similar to the Tin Cup zone.

QA/QC Statement

Diamond Core (HQ size) was drilled by Godbe Drilling LLC under the supervision of Mr. Lee Beasley, QP for Northern Lights Resources. The core was split with the half core transported to Skyline Assayers and Laboratories (Skyline) in Tucson, AZ. Field control QA/QC samples, including standards, blanks, and field duplicates, were inserted into the sample stream at a rate of one field control sample every 20 regular samples. Samples received by the lab are logged, weighted and assigned into batches. Sample preparation begins with crushing samples to 75% passing -10 mesh. From this sample, 250 grams of material is separated using a riffle splitter which is then further pulverized to at least 95% – 150 mesh resulting in a pulp that is ready for analysis. Gold was determined by fire assay fusion of a 30 gram sub-samples with atomic absorption spectroscopy (method FA-01). Overlimit samples of gold ( greater than 5 g/t) were assayed by gravimetric means (FA-02). Skyline Laboratories is accredited in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ISO 9001:2015.

Competent Persons Statement

Information in this report relating to Exploration Results is based on information reviewed by Mr. Lee R. Beasley, a Certified Professional Geologist who is a Member of the American Institute of Professional Geologists, and a consultant to Northern Lights Resources. Mr. Beasley has sufficient experience which is relevant to the style of mineralization and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity which he is undertaking to qualify as a Qualified Person for the purposes of NI43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Mr. Beasley consents to the inclusion of the data in the form and context in which it appears.
