Northern Tiger Resources NI 43-101 Technical Report on Sonora Gulch Property, Yukon Recommends 16,400 Meter Drill Program

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce receipt of a National Instrument 43-101 compliant Technical Report on its Sonora Gulch Property in the central Yukon, Canada. The report is authored by Robert Page, Ph.D., P.Geo. of Watts, Griffis and McOuat Limited (WGM) who reviewed our data and provided a report on progress at Sonora Gulch since Northern Tiger acquired the project in 2008. The report recommends a drill program of 16,400 metres to test targets for both structurally or lithologically controlled gold-silver mineralization and for bulk tonnage porphyry mineralization. The report will be posted on www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.northern-tiger.com.

"WGM's recommendations support our belief that significant exploration potential remains at Sonora Gulch," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. "Our work to date has outlined an extensive mineralized system at Sonora Gulch and demonstrated that ore grade gold-silver mineralization is deposited in favourable environments. We continue to believe that Sonora Gulch is a compelling exploration property located in a sought-after jurisdiction, and will be initiating discussions with potential strategic partners with the appropriate capital and technical expertise to aggressively advance the project."

WGM concludes that Sonora Gulch remains underexplored considering the scale of the mineralized system and its location in a prospective gold belt. Potential for discovery of structurally or lithologically controlled gold- silver mineralization is considered highest. In addition, there is also potential for discovery of bulk tonnage porphyry mineralization. The recommended drill program totals 16,400 metres, and is designed to test both types of targets.
