Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that, subject to final TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, it has closed a brokered private placement of 8,622,200 class A common shares issued as "flow-through shares" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) ("FT Shares") at a price of $0.55 per FT Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $4,742,210. The private placement was initially announced on February 14, 2011 and contemplated raising gross proceeds up to $3,000,000.

"We are pleased to be closing another significantly over-subscribed private placement," says Greg Hayes, President of Nothern Tiger. "We are now very well financed to follow-up our high-grade gold discovery at 3Ace with an aggressive 2011 exploration program, as well as continue to advance our other promising Yukon projects."

The FT Shares were sold to qualified purchasers in reliance upon exemptions from the prospectus and registration requirements of applicable securities legislation and are subject to a 4 month restricted period. The net proceeds from the Offering will be used primarily for exploration on the 3Ace Property in the southeast Yukon. 

In connection with the private placement and in accordance with regulatory requirements, the Company paid Casimir Capital Ltd. a 6% cash commission and issued non-transferable share purchase warrants ("Broker's Warrants") to acquire 517,332 class A common shares. The Broker's Warrants are exercisable at a price of $0.80 for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance.

The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted the Offering and broker's fees.
