VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 20, 2011) - CAPELLA RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:KPS)(PINK SHEETS:CPSJF) ("Capella" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding (the "MOU") dated July 19, 2011 with Celtic Tiger Minerals Explorations Inc. ("Celtic") to set out terms for the purposes of acquiring and exploring certain mineral properties throughout Atlantic Canada.

President, Mr. Richard Bachman stated, "The Company is moving forward with this transaction to increase shareholder value by leveraging its Atlantic Canada mineral properties with a motivated local partner. Capella will focus its exploration activities on its Chilean and Peruvian gold properties."

Capella will then convert its interest in those properties into 3,500,000 common shares ("Shares") of Celtic.

Following this, the Company will sell to Celtic a 100% interest in its Wentworth property in exchange for 7,500,000 Shares at a deemed price of $0.10 per Share, with the Company maintaining a 2% NSR.

Additionally, the Company and Celtic will enter into an agreement whereby Celtic will purchase certain surplus assets from Capella for $350,000.
