Northern Tiger Resources Repurchases Back-In Rights on Sonora Gulch Property, Yukon

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 27, 2011) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Capstone Mining Corp.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Minto Explorations Ltd. ("MintoEx") to extinguish the back-in rights MintoEx holds on the Sonora Gulch Property.

"With a nine square kilometre gold-in-soil anomaly, multiple gold intercepts in drill holes and a recent independent NI 43-101 Report recommending 16,400 metres of drilling, we believe that Sonora Gulch has significant exploration potential for intrusion related gold mineralization and porphyry copper-gold," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. "This transaction with MintoEx eliminates any uncertainty as to the future ownership of Sonora Gulch and unencumbers this key asset for future business opportunities or development."

When Northern Tiger was formed in 2008 it acquired five Dawson Range properties from MintoEx that covered copper mineralization and exploration targets thought to be similar to those found at Capstone's Minto Mine. At that time Northern Tiger and MintoEx entered into a Regional Exploration Alliance Agreement and MintoEx was granted certain back-in rights to Northern Tiger properties within a 50 kilometre radius of the Minto Mill. Now, at the request of Northern Tiger, and in order to unencumber the Sonora Gulch property, MintoEx has agreed to sell the its back-in rights in that property in consideration of $200,000. Northern Tiger shall satisfy this payment through the issuance of 421,052 common shares at a deemed issuance price of $0.475 per common share. The Regional Exploration Alliance remains intact, and MintoEx retains their back-in rights on other projects within 50 kilometres of the Minto Mill. The transaction is subject to approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Northern Tiger Resources Inc. (NTR: TSX-V) is a Canadian-based resource exploration company focused on gold and copper exploration in the Yukon. The company has a portfolio of gold and copper focused projects in the Yukon, including 3Ace (high-grade gold discovery made in 2010), Sprogge, Sonora Gulch and five properties prospective for Minto-style high-grade copper mineralization. Through its exploration alliance with Capstone Mining Corp.'s wholly owned subsidiary, Minto Explorations Ltd., Northern Tiger benefits from a wide range of experience, knowledge and capabilities from early exploration to mine production.
