June 28, 2016 -Vancouver, BC - Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (the "Company") (TSX.V: NEE) is pleased to announce the commencement of a second reconnaissance and mapping exploration program on the Moss and Silver Creek Claim blocks in its Moss project area in Mojave County, Arizona. The 2016 program is designed to generate specific drill targets on vein trends previously identified, using reconnaissance rock sampling and geological mapping. The 2016 program focuses on the Moss & GVC unpatented claims and the Silver Creek claims to the east. This program is an extension of previous work and builds on the success of that program (News Release dated March 24th, 2015).
Dick Whittington, President and CEO, commented: "This is an exciting step in our ongoing efforts to outline the exploration potential of the Moss Mine Property. Numerous target areas have been previously outlined and our objective now is to take this work to the next step to define drill targets for a future exploration drilling program. This work, coupled with previously highlighted mine exploration potential adjacent to the main Moss vein system, will add to our exploration potential knowledge base. That is a key objective as we seek to both extend the Moss Mine life and enlarge our resource base".
Fieldwork will consist of geological mapping focusing on vein structures and structural intersections and collection of chip samples to infill the previous sampling as well as to sample new areas. The program will be sample intensive with an estimate of 300 grab and chip samples to be collected. Results will be integrated with existing geologic, geochemical and geophysical data to define future drill targets.
Drill sites and access routes for each drill target will be laid out to facilitate permitting of future drill programs. The ultimate goal is to position the Company to both replace ounces as mining progresses and add additional ounces to the resource base.
Six exploration target areas (see attached map) on the Moss and GVC unpatented claims will be investigated:
- Old Timer vein/stockwork system
- Old Timer South
- Western extension of Moss vein
- West Oatman vein/stockwork
- eastern extension of Moss vein
- Arrastre vein
Two broad target areas on the Silver Creek claims will be mapped and evaluated
- Florence Hill -- extension of Gold Road Structure
Work has commenced and results will be announced at the completion of the program. For further details of the exploration potential at the Moss Mine and on the Moss Mine Property, please, see the link below.
