(TSXV: NM) (OTC Pink: PSPGF) (the “Company” or “Northern Empire”) is pleased to announce the results of three diamond drill holes recently completed at the Sterling Mine, located within Northern Empire’s 125 km2 Sterling Gold Project in Nye County, Nevada.

Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director stated: “We continue to be impressed with the tenor of gold mineralization encountered at the fully-permitted Sterling Mine. In 2018, we will look to expand mineralization both here and at the Crown Gold Project, which hosts three distinct high-grade deposits.”

Hole ID From (m) To (m) Interval (m) g/t Au*
STR17-032C 104.55 109.85 5.30 16.52
including 107.59 109.64 2.04 32.46

including 115.88 117.96 2.07 6.42
  (1) Hole numbers ending in “C” are core
  (2) True thickness estimated to be approximately 75% of interval length

*Cyanide Soluble grade reported except for hole STR17-032C, which is reported by fire assay with and without gravimetric finish due to individual samples being higher grade than can be accurately assayed using Cyanide Soluble assay techniques (>50 g/t Au). Where available in hole STR17-032C, cyanide soluble grade averaged 84% of fire/gravimetric assay grade.
