Share:

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2012) - NORTHERN GOLD MINING INC. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) ("Northern Gold" or the "Company") today announced results from 21 additional diamond drill holes and 3 drill hole extensions from its surface diamond drilling program on its 100% owned Garrison Gold Property, 100 km east of Timmins, Ontario. The reported holes comprise 10,056 metres from a total of 18,176 metres in 37 drill holes and 9 drill hole extensions completed to date in 2012.

Highlights include:

Jonpol East



-- 9.85 g/t Au over 2.0m (286m - 288m) GAR-12-224
-- 15.02 g/t Au over 2.0m (312m - 314m) GAR-12-224



Garrcon Deposit



-- 1.77 g/t Au over 166.0m (313m - 479m) GAR-12-114X (Extension of hole
GAR-11-114)
-- 59.13 g/t Au over 1.0m (256m - 257m) GAR-12-219
-- 601.82 g/t Au over 1.0m (142m - 143m) GAR-12-222
-- 6.08 g/t Au over 5.0m (53m - 58m) GAR-12-223



Hole GAR-12-224, collared on line 14+75W, targeted the down-dip extension of the Jonpol East Zone. The hole intersected two 2-metre intervals of 9.85 g/t Au and 15.02 g/t Au at depths of 286m and 312m, respectively.

Hole GAR-12-114X, collared on line 10+50W, is an extension of hole GAR-11-114. The hole extends mineralization at the Garrcon Deposit downhole an additional 15 metres, with an overall drill intercept of 166 metres grading 1.77 g/t Au.

Greg Gibson, President and CEO of Northern Gold, stated, "Today's drill results, including some of the hole extensions, confirm that the Garrison Property is host to two gold deposits the extents of which have yet to be outlined. Future drilling will aggressively focus on further delineation of both deposits on strike and at depth."

Table 1 - Jonpol East Assay Results (i) - The three drill holes in Table 1 targeted the Jonpol East Zone in an area of widely spaced drilling. Assay results show the down-dip Jonpol East Zone mineralized intersection in GAR-12-224 at 73 meters is about 40 meters wider than any intersection previously reported. Mineralization was also encountered in metasediments and ultramafic rocks outside the Jonpol East Zone.

Table 2 - Garrcon Assay Results (ii) - The drill hole results reported in Table 2 are significant assays from five drill holes stepping out to the west on the northwest side of the Garrcon Deposit. These drill holes are all west of Section Line 14+75 W and primarily target the westward extension of the North and Green Zones. High grade assays are cut to 34.0 g/t for comparison purposes.

About Northern Gold

Northern Gold Mining Inc. is a TSX-V listed, publicly traded junior resource company based in Toronto, Ontario, dedicated to the discovery and development of high value mineral deposits in the proven mining camps of Kirkland Lake and Timmins in north eastern Ontario. Northern Gold is focused on outlining two gold deposits at an advanced stage of exploration on its 100% owned Garrison Gold Property. The Company has recently acquired the Buffonta Property just 4 km southwest. In addition to the Jonpol and Garrcon gold deposits, the Garrison Property hosts several other gold mineralized showings, including the less advanced 903 gold mineralized area. Northern Gold Mining Inc. has historical mining infrastructure at both the Jonpol and Garrcon Deposits, is commencing exploration of the Buffonta Property, and continues to expand its land holdings in the region.
