Northern Shield Resources Inc. (TSXV: NRN) is a Canadian-based mineral exploration company previously focused on exploring for platinum group element (PGE) and Noril’sk style nickel-copper-PGE deposits in under-explored regions of Canada, primarily in the Labrador Trough of Northern Quebec.
The Company has taken the initiative to conduct much of its exploration in under-explored areas using a scientific, model-driven approach and has become known around the world as a leader in grass roots exploration for PGEs and the understanding of magmatic systems as it applies to exploration.
Northern Shield is led by Ian Bliss, President and CEO and Christine Vaillancourt, Chief Geologist. Under their guidance, Northern Shield has become known around the world as a leader in grass roots exploration for Ni-Cu-PGEs and the understanding of magmatic systems as it applies to exploration. Northern Shield has not only championed the use of simple geochemistry as a compelling exploration tool for PGEs but view it as a “risk reducer” in early stage exploration for both investors and explorationists alike. Geochemical vectoring was successfully used at Idefix and lead to the discovery at Huckleberry.
Utilizing the same approach, it has recently discovered a large low sulphidation epithermal gold system in Nova Scotia, the first of its kind in the province. The project is being explored through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Seabourne Resources Inc.
Northern Shield owns 100% of Seabourne Resources, a new company focused on exploration for gold and other opportunities in Nova Scotia at this time but looking to expand its scope to the other Canadian Maritime provinces.
