Sarissa Resources Inc. Nemegosenda Drilling Update

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Sarissa Resources Inc. ("Sarissa" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRSR) is pleased to announce preliminary results from the recent diamond drilling program on its 100% owned niobium property in northern Ontario. Three vertical holes were completed to continue to test for eastern extensions of the ore-zone originally identified by Dominion Gulf and confirmed by Sarissa's first drilling program, completed earlier this year. The previous drilling program had indicated a resource of 11,000,000 tonnes of 0.46% Nb2O5 material within the Hawke Zone (previously the D Zone) as outlined in the Technical Report prepared by Billiken Management Services Inc. in July 2009.

The three drill holes continued on the same pattern as the earlier program, at 50 metre step-outs. DDH 09-78 was drilled 50 metres east of DDH-09-77; DDH 09-79 was drilled 50 metres east of DDH 09-74; and DDH 09-80 was drilled 50 metres east of DDH 09-73.

Results for DDH-09-79 have been received back from the assay lab, and the results confirm that the Hawke Zone continues to the east of the Company's previous drilling. This hole was drilled to a vertical depth of 254 metres, of which 243 metres was sent for assaying.

Of significance, an overall grade of 0.42% Nb2O5 was returned over the entire 243 metres, including 72 metres grading 0.6% Nb2O5 between 94.25 metres and 166.25 metres.

Final results for DDH 09-78 and 80 are expected shortly.
