Vancouver, B.C. - Northern Vertex Capital Inc. (TSX.V:NEE) ("Northern Vertex") is pleased to announce results from an additional six holes of its 27,000 foot (8,300 meter) drilling program on the Moss Gold-Silver Project situated in the historic Oatman Mining district in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona.

The Company reports drill results from the along-strike distribution of the six cored holes provide additional evidence that the Moss deposit has a consistent and reliable distribution of gold and silver along its strike length. Composites from the core holes are being utilized to perform metallurgical and environmental testwork in support of the Project's feasibility and permitting. The independent testwork is currently underway at Kappes Cassiday and Associates metallurgical complex, located in Reno, Nevada.

States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson. "We are extremely pleased to see a distinct consistency and predictability of gold values materializing along the Moss stockwork gold-silver system's entire 5,000 foot (1+ km) strike length as we continue to meet or surpass historical drill results where 30 to 50 meter intervals of 1+ gram gold were reported."

"AR-76C, drilled near the eastern limit of the system, produced an impressive 24+ m intersection averaging 2.88 gpt gold equivalent -- including 6+ m averaging more than 8 gpt; AR-73C, located more than 1 km to the west, intersected 43.89 m averaging 2.76 gpt -- including 9.15 m averaging 5.22 gpt. The holes in between -- AR-72, AR-74 and AR-75 -- also yielded equally impressive values, highlighted by hole AR-74 which intersected 71+ m averaging 1.64 gpt gold equivalent -- including 12+ m exceeding 4.4 gpt". Further states Dr. Thompson

Assays received from holes 29 through 34 further validate and build on results reported May 19th, June 22nd , July 21st and August 16th (2011) for the first 28 holes of the phase 1 program.

Phase 1 drill results will be used in conjunction with the 305 historical holes previously drilled on the property between 1982 and 2008 to calculate an indicated resource that is NI 43-101 compliant.
