VANCOUVER, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Northern Vertex Capital Inc. (TSX.V:NEE) ("Northern Vertex") is pleased to announce results from an additional 7 holes of its 27,000 foot drilling program on the Moss Gold-Silver Project situated in the historic Oatman Mining district in Mohave County, Northwestern Arizona.

States Northern Vertex Chief Geologist Dr. Bob Thompson. "We are very pleased and encouraged with current assays from drilling that continue to meet or surpass historical drill results where 30 to 50 meter intervals of 1+ gram gold were reported. Significantly, six of the seven holes (table below) returned intersections of 1+ gpt Au equivalents, and the 3+, 4+ and 5+ gpt intervals portend high-grade zones within the deposit, further demonstrating the consistently and geologically robust nature of the Moss epithermal gold-silver system."

Assays received from holes 22 through 28 further validate and build on results reported May 19th, June 22nd and July 21st (2011) for the first 21 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.
