Northern Empire Resources Corp. announces that it has staked an additional 489 claims in the Bare Mountain District of Nevada. With this staking, the Company now controls approximately 95 square kilometers of contiguous prospective ground in the prolific Walker Lane trend, an increase of over 50% over the original land position.
Michael G. Allen, President, CEO and Director of the Northern Empire stated, “We’re fortunate to be able to acquire such a significant addition to the Sterling Property through staking. After reviewing the data from our recently acquired Sterling property, we noticed that the same geological setting that hosts some of our deposits was open for staking. In addition, we’ve developed a high priority Carlin type gold deposit target, where the host rock is the productive Roberts Mountain Formation, and identified where the prospective target and host rocks trended onto open ground which we subsequently staked.”
Sterling Property Plans
The Company continues to compile data and develop exploration plans and budgets, and expects to begin exploration shortly. Already the Company has identified several high priority exploration targets and expansion potential for the known deposits. The Company’s exploration program will be a combination of resource and exploration drilling and grassroots work to ensure the newly staked ground is properly evaluated prior to drilling. These plans are subject to board approval.
