VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - El Tigre Silver Corp. (the "Company" or "El Tigre") (TSX VENTURE:ELS)(PINK SHEETS:EGRTF)(FRANKFURT:5RT) is pleased to announce it has signed an option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Martin Lopez Lauterio (the "Owner") of the surface land and tailings, to exploit the extensive surface tailings which resulted from the former Lucky Tiger Combination Gold Mining Company mine in the Sierra El Tigre. The tailings are located on the concessions that are part of El Tigre's 430 square kilometre concession ownership in Sonora, Mexico.

Under the terms of the Option Agreement, the Company through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Pacemaker Mining SA de CV, will have up to two years to evaluate the tailings and design a procedure to extract the contained silver. In order to exercise its option, the Company will pay the Owner $20,000 USD upon signing of the Option Agreement and has agreed to spend $30,000 USD in engineering work during the two year term. At any time during the initial two year phase, if the Company decides to proceed with the option, the Owner will receive a further payment of 100,000 common shares of the Company. The Owner will also receive a royalty of 10% of net profit on the tailings project,which will be calculated as gross proceeds from the sale of mineral, metals and concentrates net of all costs including, smelting, refining, penalties, assay cost, arbitrage, shipping, insurance, trade tax, foreign tax, exploration, engineering, depreciation and amortization and generally all costs to obtain the minerals from the tailings.

It has been historically reported that the El Tigre Mine operated between 1903 and 1938 and recovered over 75 million ounces of silver at an average grade of 40 ounces per ton. The evaluation program will systematically drill and sample the tailings to better estimate the tonnage and the grade.
