Northern Empire prioritizes drill targets at Richardson


Last updated 11/13/2016 at Noon

Northern Empire Resources Corp. Nov. 7 provided results from the summer exploration program at its Richardson gold project in Interior Alaska.

This program included 277 line-kilometers of ground magnetic geophysical surveys and the collection of 1,297 geochemical samples.

Northern Empire said the geophysical work confirmed the Richardson lineament, a mineralized structural corridor at Richardson, and identified several north-northeast structures that the company has recently identified as possible controls of high-grade mineralization.

Chip sampling along one of these structures returned 32 meters averaging 5.73 grams per metric ton gold.

"We look forward to our 2017 program where we intend to follow up on the highest priority targets with drilling," said Northern Empire President and CEO Michael Allen.

Roughly 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Delta Junction, Richardson hosts multiple gold targets - Democrat Pit, Shamrock and Northwest Camp.

Northern Empire said these prospects just north of the Alaska Highway offer the potential for a multi-million-ounce gold discovery within a "drive-to" proven Alaska gold province.
