Northern Tiger Resources Announces 3,000 Metre Drill Program at 3Ace, Yukon

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 24, 2012) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that a field crew has been mobilized to its 3Ace Project in the southeast Yukon where 2011 drilling returned results up to 4.6 g/t gold over 35.0 metres, including 106.2 g/t gold over 1.0 metre (see news release dated October 25, 2011). The 2012 exploration program will include 3,000 metres of diamond drilling, as well as additional surface exploration, including trenching, sampling prospecting and mapping.

"We are pleased to be heading back into the field to follow up on our successful 2011 exploration results," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. "The 2012 drilling program is designed to both expand the Main Zone mineralization and to further evaluate the kilometres of gold-in-soil anomalies that remain to be drill tested."

The drilling will commence in early June, and will initially focus on expanding the Main Zone along strike and down-dip. Gold mineralization at the Main Zone currently has a drilled strike length of 220 metres, and is related to a steeply dipping shear zone which hosts an en echelon array of vein segments that are linked by stockwork veins and breccias. The drill will then shift focus to testing a number of new gold targets on both 3Ace (extensive gold-in-soil anomalies over an area of 9 km2) and the adjacent Sprogge property (hosting a 3 km trend of mineralized occurrences and extensive hydrothermal alteration).
