Northern Shield Resources Inc announced field exploration has commenced at its Root & Cellar Property in Newfoundland in Canada. Root & Cellar is being explored for low-sulphidation epithermal type gold and copper porphyry mineralization. Northern Shield can earn a 100% interest in the Property subject to the terms of an Option Agreement signed on May 21, 2019. The exploration underway includes the collection of 1,000-1,500 soil samples from a grid measuring approximately 5.5 x 3.5 kilometres. The program will expand on the pilot-scale soil sampling program completed last year, which successfully identified gold and silver-tellurium-gold anomalies in the vicinity of the Conquest and Drop Zone showings respectively. The survey will also include the Creston copper showing. President & CEO Ian Bliss said "This phase of exploration at Root & Cellar is designed to bring the project up to being drill ready by the end of 2020, if conditions allow. Our focus at Root & Cellar is directed to both epithermal gold and copper porphyry potential. We will use the same methodical and model-driven approach to exploration here that brought us a successful discovery at Shot Rock."

An intensive mapping and rock sampling program will be conducted at the same time as the soil sampling, with the objective of delineating the alteration, mineralization and structure associated with the known occurrences. Abundant boulders and outcrops showing strong epidote alteration and evidence of acid leaching has been previously noted on the property. Mapping will help determine if this could represent the outer alteration zone of a copper porphyry system. There is growing indication that the Drop Zone and Creston Copper Showing are part of an up-lifted block whereby the top of a copper porphyry system could have been telescoped to the level of the Conquest epithermal gold showing. The Drop Zone itself may represent an intermediate sulphide vein system hosting silver-tellurium-gold +/- zinc, lead and molybdenum which are not uncommon in the upper periphery to copper porphyries.

Northern Shield Resources Inc. is a Canadian-based company focused on generating high-quality exploration programs with experience in many geological terranes. It is known as a leader in executing grass roots exploration program for Ni-Cu-PGEs and utilizing expertise and innovation toward working on other deposit types. Seabourne Resources Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northern Shield focussing on epithermal gold and related deposits in Atlantic Canada and elsewhere.
