Northern Tiger Resources Finalizes Option Agreement on 3Ace Gold Property

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that an Option Agreement has been signed for the 3Ace Property, located in the southeast Yukon, Canada, formalizing the terms previously outlined in a Letter of Intent (see News Release dated March 5, 2010).

The 3Ace Property is being acquired from Mr. Alex McMillan (the "Vendor"), a long standing Yukon prospector, who recently discovered a quartz vein containing abundant quantities of free gold on the property (see picture). Historic work on the property has also identified a number of large gold-in-soil anomalies that warrant further exploration.

"We are very pleased to have the definitive agreement signed for the 3Ace Property," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger Resources. "We can now turn our attention to planning a program to both evaluate the existing high grade gold occurrence and also develop a model to explore for similar occurrences on the property."

The Option Agreement, which is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, provides Northern Tiger with an option to earn a 100% interest in the property. To complete the option, Northern Tiger will be required to make cash payments of $500,000, issue 2,000,000 shares and incur $700,000 in exploration expenditures, all over a four year period. All shares issued shall be subject to resale restrictions prescribed by applicable securities laws and the polices of the TSX Venture Exchange. An annual advance royalty payment of $45,000 will start on the 5th anniversary of the agreement and continue until the commencement of commercial production.

The Vendor will retain a 2% net smelter return interest (NSR) on the property. If a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate in excess of 500,000 ounces of gold at a grade greater than 5 g/t is defined on the property, the Vendor's NSR will increase to 2.5% and the vendor will receive a bonus payment of $300,000 (in cash or equivalent Northern Tiger shares). If a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate in excess of 1,000,000 ounces of gold at a grade greater than 5 g/t is defined on the property, the Vendor's NSR will increase to 3.0% and the vendor will receive an additional bonus payment of $300,000 (in cash or equivalent Northern Tiger shares). Each 1% of the NSR can be purchased by Northern Tiger for $2,000,000.
