Northern Shield Acquires Epithermal Gold Targets in Gaspésie, Quebec

Ottawa, Ontario (December 20, 2018) - Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield" or the "Company") [TSX-V: NRN] is pleased to announce that it has acquired, through map designation staking, two new gold projects in the Gaspésie region of Quebec. The projects were acquired within a structural and geological belt that runs from Newfoundland, through Nova Scotia, and into Gaspésie, Quebec. This same belt hosts the Company’s recently discovered epithermal gold system at Shot Rock, Nova Scotia, the Moosehead Gold Project in Newfoundland being explored by Sokaman Iron Corp., and the Hickey’s Pond gold occurrence, also in Newfoundland. The Company believes the potential for this belt to host both low and high sulphidation epithermal gold and related systems is only just being fully realized, providing significant opportunity for new discoveries in these under-explored regions.
