Northern Tiger Resources Identifies Minto-Style Drill Target on DAD Property in the Yukon's Dawson Range

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that exploration work on its DAD property has identified a strong geophysical anomaly coincident with a copper-in-soil geochemical anomaly that management believes has the potential to host high-grade copper mineralization similar to that found at Capstone Mining Corp's nearby Minto Mine. In addition, an airborne geophysical survey has identified a number of priority magnetic targets on the MEL property, located immediately to the north of the Minto Mine, which Northern Tiger plans to investigate with additional ground exploration programs in the 2010 exploration season. 

"The Gradient Array Induced Potential (GAIP) anomaly identified on the DAD property is similar in size, in orientation and in the overall tenor to the GAIP chargeability anomalies associated with the Area 2 and Minto North deposits located at the Minto Mine," says Brad Mercer, Director of Northern Tiger, and Vice President of Exploration for Capstone Mining Corp. "Also similar to Minto, the DAD anomaly lies in a similar geological setting within rocks of the Granite Mountain Batholith and is associated with favorable copper in soil geochemistry. It is now a drill ready target," he added.

Ground magnetic, induced polarization and resistivity surveys were completed on the DAD property by Aurora Geosciences Ltd. to investigate the source of anomalous copper-in-soil geochemical values. The surveys returned a distinct chargeability high anomaly suggestive of disseminated sulphide mineralization. The anomaly underlies all three of the survey lines, for a total length in excess of 300 metres. The chargeable zone is approximately 350 metres wide on the eastern end, and narrows to 200 metres as it plunges to the west. The anomaly remains open to both the east and west. Aurora's report recommends drill testing the anomaly for economic mineralization.

The DAD and MEL properties represent two of five properties that Northern Tiger initially acquired from Capstone. The five properties encompass exploration targets where previous prospecting encountered copper mineralization similar to that hosting Capstone's Minto Mine. In addition, Northern Tiger and Capstone have a Regional Exploration Alliance Agreement (through Capstone's wholly-owned subsidiary Minto Explorations Ltd.), which provides for input and cooperation on planning and executing exploration programs and long term strategies for the area, sharing of technical expertise to assist in exploration and project advancement, and access to Capstone's infrastructure to facilitate area exploration.
