NMEX Provides Updates on Northside High Oil & Gas Drilling and Winnemucca Gold Property
SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 14, 2019 - Northern Minerals & Exploration Ltd. (Stock Symbol: NMEX) is pleased to announce the following update on the drilling of the Northside High Prospect in Louisiana and a report on the Winnemucca Gold Property:
Northside High Drilling Prospect:
The drilling contractor has reported to our Joint Venture Partner EnergyFunders that drilling operations began on August 1, 2019 on our Northside High drilling prospect. As of August 13, 2019 the drilling contractor reported they were drilling at 5,300 feet toward a target depth of 7,300 feet.
The Northside High Prospect is located in the Beauregard Parish of Louisiana, the Cockfield (Yegua) Sand. Notable wells in the area have produced in excess of 200,000 barrels from this formation. NMEX is participating in this well by acquiring up to 8% of the working interest.
Winnemucca Gold Property:
The Winnemucca Mountain Gold and Silver Property consists of a total 138 unpatented mineral claims, covering over 2,600 acres in Humboldt County, in northwestern Nevada. Humboldt County is the second largest gold producing county in the United States and hosts numerous past and producing gold mines, including the Getchell (Barrick/Newmont), Marigold (Goldcorp), Lone Tree (Newmont), and Twin Creeks (Newmont). The Property is located near the northern end of the highly productive Battle Mountain-Eureka mineral trend.
Recent exploration by NMEX including geologic mapping, rock sampling, and a CSAMT geophysical survey has identified a series of steeply dipping quartz veins and outcrops which appear to be associated with a major NNE trending structure correlating with the mapped vein system. The zone is offset by a series of sub parallel structures that are several hundred feet wide and 3,000-5,000 feet in length in the Swordfish Target area on the Property
Review of the results from historical exploration, in correlation with recent work is currently underway by NMEX with the focus of defining drill targets to further evaluate the potential for mining of the Winnemucca Mountain gold and silver Property.
