Mining News: News Nuggets: Northern Empire refines drill targets at Alaska gold property

Northern Empire Resources Corp. July 11 announced the start of a C$500,000 phase-1 exploration program at its Richardson gold project in Interior Alaska. Expected to take six weeks to complete, this initial 2016 program will include 500 soil samples, 300 meters of trenching, prospecting, 100 line-kilometers of ground magnetic surveying, four line-kilometers of induced polarization surveying;, and re-logging of historical core. Highlights from rock grab samples collected from outcrop in the Democrat Pit zone at Richardson in 2015 include: 71.2 grams per metric ton gold and 48.6 g/t silver; 4.6 g/t gold and 111 g/t silver; and 2.0 g/t gold and 233 g/t silver. Soil sampling in 2015 discovered anomalies that will be investigated with trenching this year. Additional soil work will expand existing targets and also define new targets, for potential drill testing.
