Northern Shield Resources Identifies Layered Intrusion Indicator Minerals at its Eastbank Property in the James Bay Lowlands.
Ottawa (April 29, 2008) – Northern Shield Resources Inc. ("Northern Shield") (TSX-V: NRN) is pleased to announce the results of reconnaissance till sampling from its Eastbank property located within the western James Bay Lowlands in northern Ontario.
The samples returned various minerals and rock fragments that may be indicative of the presence of a layered mafic/ultramafic intrusion at Eastbank. These include chromite, chrome-bearing clinopyroxene, orthopyroxene, chrome-bearing andradite, olivine, nickel- cobalt bearing loellingite and fragments of gabbro. Olivine and nickel-cobalt loellengite are easily weathered and disintegrate quickly and hence their presence in the till sample suggests proximity to source.
