Northern Gold Mining Reports 30,000 Meter Drilling Results from Garrison Gold Property

Northern Gold Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NGM) has announced assay results for three more new diamond drill holes in its ongoing 30,000 meter drill program at the Garrcon Deposit on the Garrison Gold Property.

The results include long downhole intervals of consistent mineralization, significant intervals of 1.0 to 2.5 g/t and a few higher grade intervals.

"Our 2010 drill program on the Garrcon deposit continues to produce positive results and adds to the potential of establishing an open pit mine. The recent drilling demonstrates both continuity of the geology and the mineralization as well as upgrading the resource quality with closer spaced infill drilling," said Martin Shefsky, President and CEO of Northern Gold Mining. "With these drill results and an aggressive infill drill program we will further define the mineral resource as well as test the strike potential of this large gold system."

GAR-10-20 was collared approximately on section line 11+00W and was drilled in a westerly direction to test Shaft Zone mineralization with a drill hole oriented approximately at right angles to most of the holes in the deposit. The hole was collared at a True azimuth of 242° and an inclination of -45°. The hole was stopped at a total length of 349.5 meters. Zones of mineralization in the hole are lower-grade than the nearby north south holes that GAR-10-20 passed near while traveling from its start at section 11+00W to the End of Hole at section 12+75W. This suggests that a north south drilling direction is a better drilling orientation to outline this deposit than an east west direction.

GAR-10-23 was collared approximately on section line 12+75W at a True azimuth of 160° and an inclination of -45°. The hole experienced little deviation as the downhole survey results indicate that the hole stayed within 12.5 meters of the section line for its entire length. The hole was stopped at a total length of 336.0 meters from which 329.3 meters of core were recovered below the casing. The mineralization is very consistent to a downhole depth of 330.0 meters, averaging 0.51 g/t. The hole has higher grade sections with the highest grade being 10.87 g/t over 1.0 meter. The best section of the hole is a 103 meter interval averaging .99 g/t from 117 meters to 220 meters. Mineralization in the top 100 meters of the hole is consistent with nearby holes GAR-56 and C06-06 while the next 125 meters of the hole is slightly better than nearby holes GD-85-4 and C07-03 and GAR-10-18. The bottom 100 meters is consistent with mineralization in those same holes.

GAR-10-24 was collared approximately midway between section lines 12+75W and 13+00W at a True azimuth of 350° and an inclination of -45°. The hole has a very slight deviation to the west. Total length is 120 meters with 115.8 meters of core recovered below the casing. This hole was designed to delineate the northern limit of the North Zone mineralization (described in 43-101 Technical Report filed on SEDAR Nov. 5, 2010). North Zone mineralization was delineated from 29 to 67 meters at an average gold grade of 0.97 g/t and has established the northern limits of the North Zone on section 13+00W. The limit is consistent with the Company's expectation. The mineralization is consistent in downhole location, but lower grade than mineralization seen in nearby holes GAR-48 and GAR-86-16. The mineralization is not consistent with the location of downhole mineralization, but is consistent in grade with mineralization seen in hole GD86-16 located 25 meters to the east.

GAR-10-20, 10-23 and 10-24 continued the delineation of new resources and the reduction in drill hole spacing which will assist in upgrading the quality of existing resource categories. Northern is continuing its ongoing 30,000 meter drill program and will be drilling with two diamond drills through the winter.

The technical aspects of this press release has been reviewed by Michael Gross M.S., P.Geol., Vice President Exploration for Northern Gold, who is the "Qualified Person" as defined by NI 43-101 for this project.
