NCG Outlines Strategy and 2014 Work Plan

EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- North Country Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE: NCG)(OTCQX: NCGDF) ("North Country", "NCG" or the "Company") today announced the company's 2014 work plan, in conjunction with a near term strategy centered on underground exploration, bulk sampling and focused drilling designed to accelerate future project development at its flagship Three Bluffs Gold Deposit.

"Our work strategy, derived from ongoing geological analysis and the results of the high-level trade off and logistical studies announced January 22, 2014, is focused on cost effective activities which we believe will move the project towards our ultimate goal of becoming Nunavut's next gold producer," stated Brian Budd, President of North Country Gold. "We believe the value of the Three Bluffs project lies within what we have already discovered and that by focusing our efforts on understanding the geology and demonstrating the quality of the known mineralization we can better deliver on our mandate," added Mr. Budd.

2014 Plan

1.  Advance the project towards preparation of a possible PEA
2.  Geotechnical, acid-base accounting, engineering and logistical work to
    support bulk sample permit applications
3.  Focused drill program targeting the high grade hinge area slated for
    initial underground exploration

2015-2016 Plan

1.  Initiate Bulk Sampling Program
2.  Drill testing for potential resource extensions, new mineralized
    structures and regional satellite targets
3.  Ongoing environmental and engineering baseline studies

The 2014 work program will revolve around activities required to obtain the necessary information to prepare for and obtain the required permits to allow the company to initiate a 2 year underground exploration and bulk sampling of the Three Bluffs gold project planned in conjunction with focused drilling targeted at further delineating high grade mineralized structures identified to date. The company also plans to implement strategies to realize the potential of other assets within its property portfolio across the remainder of the Committee Bay Belt.

Three Bluffs Gold Deposit

The Three Bluffs gold project is a structurally controlled lode gold system hosted within oxide facies iron formation and greywackes. The deposit currently hosts a resource of 4.30 Mt at 4.91 g/t gold for 683,000 ounces gold (indicated) and 5.52Mt at 5.43 g/t gold for 965,000 ounces gold (inferred) (See press release dated April 23, 2013). To date, Three Bluffs has been drill tested along a strike length of 4.1 kilometres to depths of 500 metres below surface with gold mineralization persisting to depth where the company has identified additional mineral potential(i) comprising 4.5 to 7.5 million tonnes grading between 3.8 g/t and 7.3 g/t gold (see press release date April 23, 2013. (i)Estimates of the potential quantity and grade of additional mineral potential' at Three Bluffs are conceptual in nature as there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
