Northern Freegold Announces New Gold Discovery Freegold Mountain Project, Yukon

Vancouver, BC: November 6, 2013. Northern Freegold Resources Ltd. (NFR: TSX-V, NFRGF: OTCQX) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new high grade gold occurrence and the completion of the 2013 exploration program at the Freegold Mountain Project ("Freegold"). The project is 100% owned by Northern Freegold (the "Company") and is road accessible, located 70 km west of Carmacks in the Dawson gold belt of southwestern Yukon.

An initial highlight of the 2013 program includes the discovery of a new high-grade gold occurrence named the Irene. This occurrence was discovered within a larger target area identified for follow-up as a result of an induced polarization survey completed by Northern Freegold in 2011. Thirty-four chip samples were collected from bedrock in six separate trenches at Irene. Five of the six trenches crossed the mineralized zone perpendicular to the suspected strike of the zone. Results included 11.30 gpt gold over 1.0 m, part of a larger 3.0 m interval which ran 7.11 gpt gold (see table below for complete trench results).

Attention was brought to the Irene area late in the program by local placer operators processing gravels in Guder Gulch. Upon inspection of the bedrock within the placer excavation, geologists found areas of extensive brecciation and alteration. A map of the Irene showing area can be found on the Company's website.

Irene Trench Result Highlights:

-------------------------------------------------------------- |Trench Name|Mineralized Intervals | |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-017 |0.93 gpt Au/6.5 m (including 3.57 gpt Au/1.5 m) | |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-018 |3.47 gpt Au/7.0 m (including 10.90 gpt Au/1.0 m)| |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-019 |2.24 gpt Au/7.0 m (including 3.05 gpt Au/3.0 m; | | |also including 4.82 gpt Au/1.0 m) | |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-020 |0.48 gpt Au/7.0 m (including 1.49 gpt Au/2.0 m) | |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-021 |7.11 gpt Au/3.0 m (including 10.1 gpt Au/2.0 m; | | |also including 11.3 gpt Au/1.0 m) | |------------------------------------------------------------| |TR13-022 |1.65 gpt Au/2.5 m | --------------------------------------------------------------

The goal of the 2013 program was to assess select areas of the property, east of the Nucleus and Revenue deposits, which have previously shown potential to host high grade-epithermal style gold mineralization, but have seen only limited exploration in recent years. A total of 216 rock samples and 1176 soil samples were obtained over the course of the 21 day exploration campaign.

Gold mineralization at Irene is hosted in veins and breccias at the contact between a granitoid stock and metasediments. Mineralization is currently believed to be controlled by a property scale structural corridor which parallels the intrusive-metasediment contact. This structural corridor is part of the Big Creek Fault zone. Mineralogy indicates that the occurrence has an affinity towards a low-sulphidation epithermal gold system. The current extent of the Irene Zone extends 80 metres along strike and remains open in all directions. Bedrock exposure in the immediate area is encumbered by extensive gravel cover. A map and table with detailed trench results is posted on the Company's website.

President and CEO, John Burges states, "We are very excited by this new high grade discovery and the potential implications it has on this under-explored area of the ~ 200 square kilometer Freegold Mountain Property. Irene represents a very prospective and high priority target for future exploration."

The company and its consultants are currently compiling and reviewing all data from the 2013 program. Further results from the exploration program will be released by the Company once data analysis and interpretation is complete.

All samples were submitted to ALS Minerals ("ALS") in Whitehorse for prep. Geochemical analysis was completed at ALS' lab in Vancouver. The following analytical techniques were used for all samples: ME-ICP41, Au-AA23 30 g Fire Assay and Au-GRA21 30 g Fire Assay for all samples >10 ppm Au. The Company's QAQC measures included insertion of external blanks and standards into the sample stream for all rock chip samples. A minimum of one standard and one blank sample was inserted for each trench. In addition, the lab was instructed to wet-sieve each sample prior to sample preparation in order to minimize contamination from placer gravels.

Northern Freegold engaged TerraLogic Exploration Inc. to oversee the 2013 exploration program at Freegold Mountain. Project geologist, Mike McCuaig, B.Sc. P.Geo., designed and managed the 2013 program. TerraLogic has been operating mineral exploration projects in North America since 2004 and has extensive experience in Yukon Territory.

Paul Reynolds, B. Sc. P. Geo., Vice President Exploration for Northern Freegold Resources Ltd., is the Qualified Person, as defined by NI 43-101, for the Freegold Mountain Project and has reviewed the technical information in this release.
