SUDBURY, Ontario, May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Northern Superior Resources Inc. (“Northern Superior” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SUP), is pleased to announce the completion of a 934 line-km helicopter-borne magnetic geophysical survey over its 100% owned Wapistan property, located in the James Bay Lowlands, Québec.

Dr. T.F. Morris, President and CEO of Northern Superior states: “The Wapistan property is situated within an emerging and important mineral exploration region in the James Bay Lowlands, Québec. The data derived from the airborne geophysical program conducted during April 2017 is critical as a first step in advancing our understanding of the geology of the property, assisting in:

  1. understanding the relationship between the 11 various showings discovered thus far on the property (see Figure 1, Table 1) to local bedrock structure and lithology;
  2. identification of highly prospective areas for the discovery of additional mineralization; and
  3. planning future exploration programs to capitalize on highly prospective areas of mineralization identified from the geophysical data and/or data review.”

Covering approximately 32 km strike length of a major structure developed in an Archean-aged volcanic-sedimentary package, the Wapistan mineral property is district in scale, consisting of 207 claims or approximately 10,408 hectares. These volcanic-sedimentary rocks within the Wapistan property host multiple gold and other precious metal occurrences (Figure 1, Table 1) in rocks similar to those associated with the Roberto Deposit (Goldcorp Inc.) and the Eau Claire Gold Deposit (Eastmain Resources Inc.), also located within this emerging mineral exploration and mining region.
