Northern Vertex Provides Exploration Update

Airborne Magnetics Survey Identifies Multiple Blue Sky Targets

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/14 -- Northern Vertex Mining Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NEE) (OTCQX:NHVCF) is pleased to provide an update on the Company's property wide exploration plans and opportunities on its Moss Mine Gold-Silver property located in Mohave County, Arizona, USA.

Recent interpretation of an airborne magnetic survey carried out on the Company's Moss Mine property has shown that magnetics are effective in helping to map potential mineralized structures on the property - the resulting surveys are attached. Both magnetic highs and lows correspond with known mineralized structures on the Company's property. Highlights of this interpretation are:


--  The main Moss resource and hosting structure lies along a well-defined
    magnetic high and importantly shows there are 3 kilometers of unexplored
    potential on the one structure. 
    
--  The current Moss resource sits along 1500 meters of strike exclusive of
    the 3 kilometers of untested structure. 
    
--  Including the Moss structure there are 9 magnetic linear anomalies
    associated with known mineral occurrences or historic workings
    indicating potential for hosting new discoveries along these structures.
    
--  One of these structures includes nearly 6 kilometers of the mapped
    extension of the structure hosting the Gold Road deposit which produced
    nearly 500,000 ounces at 0.32 opt gold. 
    
--  In all, there are approximately 21 kilometers of potential strike length
    along these structures defined by the magnetics. As well as the
    magnetics, field mapping and the abundance of historic mineral
    occurrences and old workings were used to interpret the data. 
    
--  Several other linear magnetic lows and highs occur across the property
    and require ground work to determine if they are mineralized. 
    
--  Historic production in the Oatman District is recorded at 2.2 million
    ounces gold production with 2 million coming from the United Eastern,
    Tom Read and Gold Road mines at a combined average grade of 0.59 opt.
    gold. The principle ore bodies in these mines occupied strike lengths of
    130 meters (450 feet) to 1160 meters (3800 feet). These are outlined on
    the attached chart.

In conclusion, this new data, and the implications of its interpretation, indicate that the exploration potential of the Company's Moss mine property - with 21 kilometers of structure to be explored - is very good. Given that the Moss Mine structure contains 654,000 ounces of M+I AuEq (see below for a detailed breakdown and assumptions used) and 82,000 ounces of inferred (see below for the details and assumptions used) along 1500 meters of mineralized structure and that the United Eastern, Tom Reed and Gold Road mines produced over 2.0 million ounces along a combined strike length of approximately 2 kilometers of mineralized structure, the Blue Sky exploration potential of the Moss mine property can be considered highly prospective. The Company is designing an exploration programme to assess this potential to run concurrent with completion of the feasibility study and development of the Phase II - Operations phase of the Company's business plan..

Dick Whittington, President & CEO Northern Vertex Mining Corp., states, "The Moss Mine property is in a highly prospective area for gold discoveries. This new data highlights the potential for further discoveries on the Company's Moss Mine property. This is pure "Blue Sky" right now but this type of airborne magnetics, along with site mapping, in a region of extensive historic workings, has been the foundation for many successful early stage exploration programmes."

Ongoing Activities:

The Company's operations currently focus solely on the leaching of gold from the pilot plant leach pad operation. The Company continues to exercise fiscal responsibility and has reduced costs, corporately and in the field, in order to preserve cash in the current market environment. Work on the Feasibility Study continues with the immediate focus on reviewing and enhancing the Company's block model based on the most recent drilling (see News Release dated October 17, 2013); and additional geological information made available as a result of the Company's Phase I - Pilot Plant operations.

Qualified Persons:

The foregoing geological disclosure has been reviewed and verified by James McDonald, P.Geo. Mr. McDonald is a director of Northern Vertex. and a Qualified Person ("QP") for the purpose of National Instrument 43-101 (Disclosure Standards for Mineral Projects).

Moss Mine Mineral Resource Estimate:

The Moss Mine deposit is an epithermal, brecciated, low sulphidation quartz-calcite vein and stockwork system which extends over a strike length of 1,400 meters and has been drill tested to depths of 200 meters vertically. The Moss mineral resources as estimated in the Company's recent preliminary economic assessment as outlined in the Company's News Release dated June 18, 2013, are as follows:

--  Gold equivalency is based on a silver:gold ratio of 50:1 and assumes
    100% recovery of all metals. 
--  A 0.30 g/t Au cut-off grade was used. 
--  Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated
    economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the
    Mineral Resources estimated will be converted into Mineral Reserves
    estimates. 
--  Mineral resource tonnage and contained metal have been rounded to
    reflect the accuracy of the estimate and numbers may not add due to
    rounding. 
--  Resources were based on 36,805 meters of drilling in 658 exploration
    drill holes and 530 meters of channel sampling. There were a total of
    7,677- 5 meter composite samples used in the estimation of gold and
    silver. MMC used Inverse Power Distance (ID3) as the preferred
    estimation technique for the Moss Project. 
--  MMC capped gold assays, prior to compositing 5 meter samples, at 17
    grams per tonne and silver at 140 grams per tonne in order to limit the
    effect of high grade outlier grades in the estimation of mineral
    resources. 
--  MMC applied Industry Standards in the selection of the drill hole and
    assay information gathered from historic and current exploration
    programs in its determination of Measured Mineral Resources, Indicated
    Resources and Inferred Resources.
