Sarissa Resources Announces the Acquisition of Additional Claims in Shining Tree Resources

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - May 27, 2011) - Shining Tree Resources Corp. ("Shining Tree Resources" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired an additional claim group in the Shining Tree area of Northern Ontario.

The new claim group is comprised of 5 claims of 16 claim units each, and is situated approximately 4 kilometers south-west of the Company's existing holdings. It is subject to a 2% NSR, of which 1/2 may be purchased by the Company for a pre-determined price.

Shining Tree Resources is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sarissa Resources Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SRSR) ("Sarissa"). As has been reported in a previous release, Sarissa expects that it will accomplish a spin-out of Shining Tree Resources to become a Canadian reporting issuer at the time of, or as soon as possible following, the spin-out, by declaring a dividend-in-kind of all the shares of Shining Tree to the shareholders of Sarissa.

The initial Shining Tree Property consists of 7 contiguous claim groups, approximately 1200 acres, in the Shining Tree gold area of Northern Ontario. The new claim group increases the Company's land holdings in the area by approximately 13 square kilometers.

The Shining Tree Properties lie within the southwest part of the Abitibi greenstone belt. The Abitibi greenstone belt is prospective for a number of mineral deposit types, including mesothermal lode gold deposits, volcanogenic massive base metal sulphide deposits and layered magmatic sulphide (Ni) deposits.

The Shining Tree area has been considered an under-explored area within a highly prospective region, due primarily to a land caution covering the area from 1973 until 1996. Previous exploration and diamond drilling on the property by Sarissa had returned positive results, as previously released, and Shining Tree Resources will further test these and other targets. In preparation for this next phase of exploration, a grid is currently being established over the initial 7 claim group.
