Sarissa Resources Shareholder Update

OAKVILLE, ON--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - Sarissa Resources, Inc. ("Sarissa" or "the Company") (PINKSHEETS: SRSR) is pleased to provide a general company update to inform shareholders of ongoing initiatives.

Recent activities have focused more on the corporate and strategic front as opposed to exploration. We have continued making progress on those activities, addressing capital markets, corporate and financial matters, as well as potential strategic initiatives, with the input of our professional advisors. Though we will continue ongoing exploration operations in furtherance of the development of our mineral properties, indeed we recently announced an expanded exploration program for our Shining Tree gold claims, it is the measured opinion of our management and professional advisors that enhancing the financial markets profile of our Nemegosenda project at this stage of our development will best suit the interests of our shareholders. Further, it is important to complete the professional analysis of the Nemegosenda project as we move forward in our review and negotiation of potential strategic opportunities.


The Company's geological advisory firm prepared an updated 43-101 technical report in September of this year on the Nemegosenda property. This report has been filed at The next phase of the Company's evaluation will be to complete a resource estimate covering the main Hawke (D) Zone of the property, which will likely be followed by a project scoping study. Additional exploration will focus on the South East Zone, and on identifying other potential areas of interest within the large land position we have accumulated in the area.

The properties comprising the Nemegosenda property are held in a wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary. We have recently changed the name of this subsidiary to Nio-Star Corp.

Shining Tree

Diamond drilling is expected to commence early in 2011 to test further underground from the area covered by the initial drilling program that had returned encouraging results. An independent technical report will be prepared covering the property. We are also evaluating different scenarios that will allow us to have the potential value of this property recognized, including the possibility of spinning out the property into a separate gold company.

Capital Markets Matters

We have been working with our financial advisors and consultants with the goal of improving the Company's presence in certain capital markets around the world. This and certain other initiatives are focused on improving our corporate and listing status. 

Strategic Initiatives

All of the above referenced activities will enhance our ability to create or identify strategic opportunities that accelerate and intensify the realization of the value of our mineral properties. We have been engaged in various discussions regarding strategic initiatives that would help to optimize shareholder value. As Sarissa moves forward on these and other corporate fronts, please understand that the interests of your management team are aligned with the interests of our shareholders. We look forward to providing specific updates on our initiatives, as specific developments occur.
