EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2010) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that, subject to final TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 9,470,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit and 4,464,000 class "A" common shares issued as "flow-through shares" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) ("FT Shares") at a price of $0.25 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,010,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit consisted of one class "A" common share of Northern Tiger ("Common Share") and one-half of one transferable share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share for a price of $0.30 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance, subject to earlier termination in the event that the closing price (or closing bid price on days when there are no trades) of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.40 for 20 consecutive trading days. 

The FT Shares and Units were sold to qualified purchasers in reliance upon exemptions from the prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities legislation. The net proceeds from the Offering will be used primarily for exploration on existing properties, and for general corporate purposes. The FT Shares, the Common Shares and Warrants comprising the Units and Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are subject to a four (4) month restricted period which expires on September 4, 2010.

In connection with the private placement and in accordance with regulatory requirements, the Company paid certain arms-length parties an aggregate of $123,700 cash and granted an aggregate of 571,100 non-transferable share purchase warrants ("Finder's Warrants") to acquire 571,100 Common Shares. The Finder's Warrants are exercisable at a price of $0.23 for a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance, subject to earlier termination in the event that the closing price (or closing bid price on days when there are no trades) of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange exceeds $0.40 for 20 consecutive trading days.

The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted the Offering and finder's fees.
