Northern Tiger Resources Reports Visible Gold in Sonora Gulch Drill Core

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 18, 2008) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce positive results from the first four holes of the 2008 diamond drilling program on the Company's 100% owned Sonora Gulch gold-silver-copper property, including a 4.8 metre intercept with visible gold grading 2.31 g/t gold, 19.8 g/t silver and 0.737% copper (Hole SG-08-25).

"We are excited by the new style of gold mineralization encountered in the Nightmusic Zone" says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger Resources Inc. "We are also considering additional assay testing to address the potential nugget effect associated with the visible gold."

The Sonora Gulch property is characterized by multiple styles of gold mineralization and a gold-bismuth-tellurium geochemical signature. The project is located in the Dawson Range gold district in west-central Yukon Territory within 25 kilometres of a seasonal access road and within 40 kilometers of Sherwood Copper's Minto copper-gold mine access road and soon to be completed hydro power line.

Sonora Gulch Drill Program

The 2008 program consisted of 2,238.3 metres of diamond drilling in 10 holes testing three major target areas at Sonora Gulch. It also included detailed soil and silt geochemical sampling, mapping and prospecting across a large area of the Sonora Gulch property, and on Northern Tiger's other Dawson Range properties.

The first three holes of the 2008 program, SG-08-23 through 25, targeted the Nightmusic Zone, while the fourth hole, SG-08-26, targeted the Jupiter copper-gold geochemical anomaly. Results are pending for three more holes targeting the Nightmusic zone, and for three holes targeting the Amadeus Zone, located more than two kilometers to the east of the Nightmusic Zone.

Hole SG-08-23 returned a 2.0 metre intercept grading 5.09 g/t gold from 113.3 to 115.3 metres. A 2008 surface sample of quartz veining from previously trenched material returned a value of 1.105 g/t gold.

Hole SG-08-24, collared about 75 metres to the northwest of SG-08-23, returned a 28.0 metre intercept from 73.5 to 101.5 metres grading 0.606 g/t gold with 6.0 g/t silver. This intercept includes a 4.0 metre sub-interval grading 1.428 g/t gold from 73.5 to 77.5 metres.

Hole SG-08-25, collared 145 metres to the southeast of SG-08-23, returned a 4.8 metre intercept grading 2.31 g/t gold, including visible gold, with 19.8 g/t silver and 0.737% copper. Several shorter mineralized zones of gold +/- silver and copper mineralization were encountered within this hole, as well as a 1.4 metre interval from 160.0 to 161.4 metres grading 2.82% zinc.

The fourth hole, SG-08-26, which targeted the Jupiter anomaly, was collared 650 metres south-southeast of SG-08-23. Elevated gold and silver values, anomalous copper and strongly anomalous molybdenum values were returned across the length of the hole. Results include a 2.0 metre intercept from 216.5 to 218.5 metres grading 1.18 g/t gold and 81.9 g/t silver.

Important intercepts from the first four holes are listed in Table 1 below.
