Sarissa Resources Inc. Nemegosenda Hawke Zone Drilling Update

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  Sarissa Resources Inc., ("Sarissa" or the "Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRSR), is pleased to announce further results from the recent diamond drilling programs on its 100% owned niobium property in northern Ontario. Three additional vertical holes were completed in the Hawke Zone to test for eastern extensions of the ore-zone originally identified by Dominion Gulf and confirmed by Sarissa's first drilling program. Further details on the Company's previous drilling can be found in the Technical Report (www.sarissaresources.com/media/Sarissa_Nemogesenda_Summary_Final.pdf) prepared by Billiken Management Services Inc. in July 2009.

Results for DDH-09-80 have expanded the previous known area of niobium mineralization in the Hawke Zone. This hole was collared 50 meters east of DDH-09-73 and drilled to a vertical depth of 271 meters. Significant intersections are as follows: 0.32% Nb2O5 over 74 meters (from 12.5m to 86.5m downhole), 0.32% Nb2O5 over 67.5 meters (from 103m to 170.5m downhole), and 0.46% Nb2O5 over 60 meters (from 191.5 m to 261.5 m downhole).

Mr. Scott Keevil, President, commented, "Sarissa's geological team is extremely pleased with these results in that they demonstrate that the Hawke zone, which occupies a portion of the northeast corner of the Nemegosenda Intrusive Complex, alone has the potential to host significant niobium reserves. To date, current and historical exploration work has only tested 2.8 kilometers of the 13.9 kilometers of the circumferential strike length of the Nemegosenda Intrusive Complex outer rim, consequently the exploration potential here is significant."

Further drilling results from the SE Zone program are expected shortly.
