Northern Superior Initiates 2014 Summer Exploration Program, Croteau Est Gold Property, Quebec

SUDBURY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/14 -- Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: SUP) (the "Company" or "Northern Superior") announced today that the Company has initiated its planned summer exploration program on the Croteau Est gold property, west-central Quebec. The program will include prospecting, mechanical trenching, channel sampling, and bedrock mapping.

First results include the discovery of fine grained visible gold ("VG") observed within sheared and silicified sulphide-rich samples collected from three different sites within a high-grade shoot exposed in Trench 5, located within the properties Croteau-Bouchard Shear Zone ("CBSZ").

Objectives of the 2014 Summer Exploration Program


a.  Continue to refine and develop high-priority targets identified from the
    2014 winter- spring reverse circulation (RC) drill program with the
    objective of prioritizing for the next phase of core drilling.
b.  Refine the lithological and structural controls of a plunging, high
    grade gold shoot previously defined at depth from core drilling (Table
    1) within the CBSZ. This shoot was exposed by projecting the plunge
    mineralization to surface where it is exposed in Trench 5. From
    preliminary work completed last fall Northern Superior reported assays
    in this zone of 16.35 g/t Au/1.25 m and grab samples up to 68.7 g/t Au
    (see Press Release, November 12th, 2013). This zone represents one of at
    least five similar high- grade zones defined from core drilling
    completed to date within the CBSZ.

The Property

Northern Superior has identified four structural and lithological models that may control the distribution of gold mineralization on its Croteau Est property:


1.  Shear zones and associated high grade gold mineralization developed
    along east- west reverse faults in conjunction with:
    a.  Quartz- feldspar porphyry dykes contained within the shear zone, and
    b.  Dilational jogs characterized by high-frequency of quartz veining;
2.  The intersection of east- west shear zones with northeast-trending
    faults (i.e. similar geological settings in this mining camp include:
    Joe Mann, Cooke, Norbeau, Gwillim deposits);
3.  Intersection of east- west shear zones with the axis of F2 folds
    (specifically folded mafic gabbros) (i.e. examples in this mining camp
    include the Springer, Perry, and Robitaille mines); and
4.  Intrusion-related gold mineralization based on the recognition of an
    approximately 2 km x 2 km magnetic- high in Opemiska Group sediments.
    Recently, it has been determined that the major unconformity-bounded
    Opemiska Group sediments have potential for syenite- associated
    disseminated Au- mineralization similar to deposits elsewhere in Abitibi
    (e.g. Young-Davidson, Malartic, Cote Lake) based on:

--  Age correlation between Opemiska Group and Timiskaming- style basins in
    the Abitibi;
--  Age of deposition of clastic sediments is contemporaneous with the high-
    K andesites and alkaline plutons in the Chibougamau area; and
--  Spatially associated large structural breaks/ regional faults (e.g.
    Faribault Fault), occurring near boundaries between lithological
    domains/ unconformity boundaries (Roy Group volcanics/ Opemiska
    sediments), near the base of the sedimentary package.

The Company looks forward to reporting the results of its summer exploration program in the coming months.

About Northern Superior

The Croteau Est property is one of four mineral properties that Northern Superior is actively exploring. The other three properties (Lac Surprise, Grizzly and TPK) also represent regional-scale exploration programs, either 100% owned and operated by Northern Superior, or Northern Superior having the right to earn a 100% interest in the properties. Exploration to date has identified numerous drill-ready targets for gold, copper and silver mineralization on the Ti-pa-kaa-haa-ning ("TPK") property in northwestern Ontario, gold/volcanic copper-zinc-silver and magmatic nickel-copper-platinum-palladium mineralization are targeted on the Grizzly property, and shear-hosted gold on the Company's Lac Surprise property, both located in west-central Quebec.

The Company's Qualified Person ("QP") for the Croteau Est property is Ron Avery (P.Geo.). As the QP, Mr. Avery has prepared or supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information for this program and has verified the data disclosed in this press release.

Northern Superior is a reporting issuer in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol SUP.
