Northern Shield Provides Updates on Idefix and Ikertoq properties; Intersects Reef-type Mineralization at Idefix, Quebec

Northern Shield Provides Updates on Idefix and Ikertoq properties; Intersects 
Reef-type Mineralization at Idefix, Quebec 
OTTAWA, Aug. 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern 
Shield") (TSXV: NRN) is pleased to provide an update on its 100% owned Idefix 
PGE (platinum group element) project in northern Quebec funded under the terms 
of the option agreement with Impala Platinum Holdings Limited ("Impala") and, 
the Ikertoq Ni-Cu-PGE project in Greenland. Northern Shield has the right to 
earn a 50% interest in the Ikertoq property under the terms of an option 
agreement with Greenland Gold Resources Ltd. 
Idefix, Quebec Update 
Fourteen drill-holes totaling 1501 meters were completed along with surface 
sampling (129 sawn channel samples and 90 grab samples). A total of 951 
samples of drill-core from the program have been sent for analysis. 
Twelve of the fourteen holes intersected various forms of disseminated, blebby 
and net-textured sulphides typically dominated by pyrrhotite with lesser 
chalcopyrite. In general, three styles of sulphide mineralization were 
observed in drill core: 
The Upper Zone consists of small patches of fine-grained net-textured
  pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite irregularly distributed over intervals
  generally ranging from 5-15 meters. Sulphide content over these
  intervals average on the order of 1-2% with local, shorter, higher
  content intervals. 

  The Reef-type Zone consists of coarse-grained interstitial pyrrhotite
  and lesser chalcopyrite. This zone is geologically distinct,
  generally underlained by vari-textured gabbro(norite) including
  portions that are pegmatoidal. The reef-type zones are generally
  between 0.3 and 1.5 meters thick. Sulphide content over these core
  intervals varies and is up to approximately 15%. 

  The Contact Zone consists of globules and blebs of pyrrhotite 1-3 cm
  in diameter, with "flames" of chalcopyrite often seen emanating from
  the globules. The Contact Zone generally ranges from 1 to 3 meters in
  thickness. Sulphide globules are irregularly distributed over these
  intervals and may reach up to 10% locally. 
The above mentioned observations are based on visual inspection of the core 
and without the benefit of analysis. Assays are pending and expected in two to 
three weeks. 
Based on last year's surface sampling, PGE mineralization at Idefix is known 
to be associated with relatively low concentrations of sulphides (~1-5% with a 
high of approximately 12%). Low concentrations of sulphides are typical for 
many PGE deposits such as the JM Reef at the Stillwater Complex, Montana and 
the Merensky Reef at the Bushveld Complex, South Africa. 
"We are very optimistic about the PGE potential of Idefix and are particularly 
excited about the identification of reef-type sulphide mineralization that was 
not recognized on surface last year" says Northern Shield's President and CEO, 
Ian Bliss. "This style of mineralization is highly sought after and what we 
had been looking for at Highbank. We have multiple zones and styles of 
mineralization and eagerly look forward to assay results and returning to the 
property for further drilling." 
Exploration at Idefix and in the surrounding region is being funded by Impala 
of South Africa under the terms of an option agreement signed in May 2012. The 
terms of the option and joint venture agreement allow Impala to earn a 50% 
interest in Idefix by making cash payments to Northern Shield totaling 
$300,000 over two years and incurring $3.2 million in exploration expenditures 
at Idefix or the surrounding area over three years, with total expenditures of 
$1,950,000 committed for the first two years of the agreement. The property 
expenditures are subject to a 10% project management fee payable to Northern 
Shield who is the operator of the projects. 
Ikertoq, Greenland Update 
Nine drill-holes totaling 2124 meters were completed along with surface 
sampling (73 grab samples) and regional mapping and reconnaissance. A total of 
355 samples of drill-core from the program have been sent for analysis. Six of 
the holes were drilled on the eastern portion of Target A, two into the 
central portion and one at Target B to the south of Target A. (see website) 
In Target A, irregularly disseminated pentlandite (nickel sulphide) was 
observed in dunite, peridotite and/or pyroxenite in five of the six holes in 
the eastern portion in lower than expected concentrations in association with 
trace pyrrhotite and chalcopyrite. In the two holes drilled in the western 
portion zones of coarser grained pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite and pentlandite were 
observed over intervals of 8 and 11 meters but again of overall lower 
concentrations than expected. Of particular interest is the PGE potential of a 
pegmatitic pyroxenite at the base of the intrusion with coarse disseminated 
blebs of pentlandite and pyrrhotite mineralization that was intersected in 
drill-hole IQ13-03. The drill-hole at Target B did not intersect any 
mafic-ultramafic rock nor mineralization. 
Conductivity measurements were also taken throughout the core and no 
measurements were observed that would explain the VTEM conductors even where 
pentlandite was present and despite the VTEM anomaly being intersected as 
modeled. Four-holes were surveyed with down-hole electromagnetics (EM) and 
several lines were also surveyed across both the eastern and western portions 
of Target A with the same method. 
"Target A has all the right parameters of a solid exploration target: the 
right geology, very strong airborne geophysical anomalies and the presence of 
pentlandite on surface and in nearly every hole. We are obviously disappointed 
in the lack of massive sulphide in the first phase of drilling but remain 
optimistic as nothing yet has been seen in drill core that explains such a 
strong airborne EM anomaly. We must also keep in mind that from what we see on 
surface, one does not necessarily need massive sulphides to get good nickel 
grades in these rocks. Interpretation of the down-hole and surface geophysical 
surveys is on-going and further exploration will be determined when all assay 
and geophysical results are in," says Northern Shield President and CEO, Ian 
Bliss. The drill and camp remain on-site at Ikertoq. 
Target L was not drilled though the area was mapped and prospected. Of 
interest is a pyroxenite unit (perhaps related to similar rocks observed in 
Target A) emplaced through sulphidic sediments. Grains of pentlandite were 
observed in several samples from this area. No mafic-ultramafic intrusive 
rocks were observed directly overlying Target C though numerous other 
ultramafic intrusive bodies were observed within the Ikertoq Property 
including near VTEM Targets D and H. A layered dunite-pyroxenite intrusion was 
also discovered within claims acquired by Northern Shield prior to the field 
The above mentioned observations are based on visual inspection of the core 
and without the benefit of analysis. Assays from Ikertoq that were expected 
this week are delayed due to transportation issues outside of Northern 
Shield's control. 
Northern Shield has met the first year expenditure requirement per the option 
agreement with Greenland Gold Resources Ltd. 
The exploration programs at Idefix and Ikertoq were overseen by Christine 
Vaillancourt, a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101. Samples 
from Greenland are being prepared by ALS Global in Sweden and then analyzed by 
ALS Global in Vancouver, BC, for Au, Pt and Pd by Fire Assay with ICP-AES 
finish and base metals by four acid digestion and ICP-AES. Samples from Quebec 
are being prepared by ALS Global in Val D'or, Quebec and then analyzed by ALS 
Global in Vancouver, BC, for Au, Pt and Pd by Fire Assay with ICP-AES finish 
and base metals by four acid digestion and ICP-AES. 
Northern Shield will release any additional material results from all assays 
once received.
