November 22, 2017, Vancouver, B.C. - Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (TSX.V:NEE) (OTC-Nasdaq Intl.: NHVCF) (the “Company” or “Northern Vertex”) announces it has filed on SEDAR its Moss Gold-Silver Project, NI 43-101 Technical Report, Preliminary Economic Analysis, Extended Mine Life, dated as of November 22, 2017 (the “PEA”). The PEA results were previously disclosed in the company's news release dated October 9th, 2017. The PEA sets out the technical and economic viability of extending the Moss mine to include resources onto the Company’s adjacent un-patented mining claims. This scenario includes surface disturbance and an expansion of the mine facilities onto federal public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and would therefore require the submission and approval of a Mine Plan of Operations.

Kenneth Berry, President and CEO, stated: “This PEA is further encouragement of the scalability of production in the initial years as well as the potential longevity of the Moss Gold Mine. Eliminating the patented boundary constraints and increasing production to a peak of 60,000 gold equivalent ounces in year four, the PEA indicates the Moss mine project has the potential to measurably improve the economics stated in the Company’s Phase II Feasibility Study published in June, 2015. Management, in consultation with its board of directors, advisors and financial partners will review the merits of implementing this accelerated schedule at the Moss Mine on an expedited basis. To further expand our existing resources, management intends to conduct an aggressive exploration and resource expansion program during the first two years of production.”

The PEA was prepared by a team of independent consultants that included M3 Engineering and Technology of Tucson, AZ (process facility and site infrastructure design and costing), Golder Associates of Tucson, AZ (heap leach pad and waste dump), Mine Development Associates of Reno, NV (mine planning and production scheduling), and CDM Smith of Phoenix, AZ (project permitting). The PEA study team was managed by Dr. David Stone, PE, Project Manager for the Moss Mine Project.
The Company cautions that the PEA is preliminary in nature in that it is includes Inferred Mineral Resources which are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be characterized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
The foregoing technical information contained in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 (Standards for Disclosure for Minerals Projects) and reviewed on behalf the Company by James McDonald, P.Geo & Director for Northern Vertex, a Qualified Person.
