NPN INVESTMENT GROUP ANNOUNCES INITIAL DRILLING COMPLETE ON DIVIDE
September 6th, 2007, VANCOUVER, B.C. – NPN INVESTMENT GROUP (the “Company”) (NPN-TSX: V) announces today that an initial drill program has been completed on its recently announced Divide Property in Alaska (see press release dated August 16, 2007) with joint venture partner and operator, Millrock Resources Inc (MRO-TSX:V) (“Millrock”).
As reported by Millrock, “Five holes totalling 1,841 feet (561.1 metres) were drilled to test an exceptional soil anomaly that has been found to exist on the Divide claims. The anomaly measures over 8,000 feet (2,600 m) long and 2,000 feet (660 m) wide. The strongest portions of the anomaly, which exceed 200 parts per billion gold over a broad area, had not been previously drill tested.”
“Millrock has elected to submit the entire core from mineralized intersections for analysis in order to avoid the possibility of gold loss during splitting or sawing. While no visible gold was observed, gold loss has been a problem at this property and at the nearby Rock Creek mine, currently being constructed by NovaGold. All core has been logged and photographed, with depth markers showing and visible. In the interest of full disclosure, Millrock also notes that the core was logged in part by David Lajack, a principal of NPN Investment Group, and in part by Philip St. George, Millrock's vice-president of exploration. A sample quality control/quality assurance program is in place. The core has been kept in a secure location. Samples will be sealed for delivery to ALS Chemex in Fairbanks, Alaska. Each sample will be screened for metallics, and a two-assay-ton aliquot will be used for a fire-assay atomic absorption finish. Core that is not sampled will be retained as a geological record, and coarse rejects will be retained for review and further analysis if necessary. Results are anticipated to be available in late September.”
The quoted contents of this press release have been prepared by Mr. Gregory Beischer, Certified Professional Geologist, President and CEO of Millrock Resources Inc. Mr. Beischer is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
The Divide Property is located in the prolific Cape Nome mining district about 27 miles (45 km) north of Nome, Alaska.
