Northern Tiger Resources Silt Survey Identifies New Gold Anomalies at 3Ace Property, Yukon

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2011) - Northern Tiger Resources Inc. ("Northern Tiger" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:NTR) is pleased to announce that an extensive silt survey program on its 3Ace and Sprogge projects has identified multiple new prospective gold target areas. A total of 12 new drainages returned significantly anomalous gold in silt values in excess of 35 ppb (90th percentile) up to 113 ppb.

"The Company's exploration effort to-date has focused on a relatively small core area – covering only 2% of the 225 km2 land package," says Greg Hayes, President of Northern Tiger. "The strong results of this silt survey demonstrate that the 3Ace/Sprogge properties are very prospective for additional gold discoveries."

A total of 420 silt samples were collected over the 225 km2 3Ace and Sprogge properties. Twelve new drainages (outside of the core mineralized zones already being explored by the Company) produced significantly anomalous gold in silt results (>35 ppb or 90th percentile of the Company's property dataset). These samples also exceed the 98th percentile (18 ppb) of samples taken in the Yusezyu Formation by the Yukon Government's Selwyn Basin regional stream sediment survey. A map showing the silt anomalies will be posted on the Company's website at

Initial follow-up prospecting on four of these drainages has already led to one new copper showing and two new quartz vein showings (one bedrock and one in talus float). The new quartz vein showings consist of abundant quartz veining in quartz pebble conglomerate with accompanying disseminated arsenopyrite - similar to mineralization being explored in the Main and Green Zones. Assay results from these showings are pending.

This News Release has been reviewed and approved by Dennis Ouellette, B.Sc., P.Geol., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Silt samples were analyzed by Inspectorate America Corporation of Richmond, British Columbia, using a 30-gram fire assay, and a 50-element ICP with aqua regia digestion analysis.
