Sarissa Resources Inc., Nemegosenda Magnetic Anomaly of Potential Identified

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Sarissa Resources Inc. ("Sarissa" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRSR) is pleased to announce that another magnetic anomaly of potential has been identified on its 100% owned niobium property in northern Ontario. The newly identified area of interest lies to the south of what was previously thought to have been the southern boundary of the South East Zone.

The anomaly was identified through an independent interpretation of the Ontario Geological Survey's total magnetic intensity data from its Kapuskasing airborne geophysical survey and from the earlier ground and airborne geophysical work done on the property. The interpretation work was compiled by Francis L. Jagodits, P. Eng., Consulting Geophysicist. The target magnetic anomaly is approximately 400 metres south of previous drill holes within the South East Zone which, historically, had encountered significant values of Nb2O5 material. Follow-up on-site investigation of the magnetic anomaly shows high Total Count (CPS or counts per second) readings with a hand-held scintillometer. High Total Count readings have provided good indications of mineralization on the property in the past.

This target is of significant interest as its magnetic signature is similar to that of the signatures associated with both the Hawke Zone mineralized area (formerly the D Zone), and with that of the South East Zone. In both of these areas past and current drilling has indicated significant amounts Nb2O5 material. Sarissa's 2008 and 2009 drilling program has indicated a resource of 11,000,000 tonnes of 0.46% Nb2O5 material within the Hawke Zone, as outlined in the Technical Report prepared by Billiken Management Services Inc. in July 2009.

Based on the encouraging conclusions reached by Mr. Jagodits, the current drilling program being conducted in the South East Zone will be expanded to test this newly identified anomaly for Nb2O5 mineralization.

Scott Keevil, Sarissa CEO, commented, "Our technical team is pretty excited about this potential step-out. If drilling finds Nb2O5 mineralization there it could indicate a very significant extension to the South East Zone."
