Sidon International Resources Corporation: Drilling Starts on Tanzanian Gold Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - SIDON INTERNATIONAL RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:SD) (FRANKFURT:SY7)

Sidon International Resources Corp. reports that it has commenced its drilling program on the company's MEG Property southeast of Morogoro in east central Tanzania.

Abby Farrage, Director of Sidon states, "This is a significant step forward for Sidon. To now be underway on this gold prospect in one of the most talked about regions in the gold world is something management has been working towards for many months. Management is optimistic about what this Tanzanian gold prospect will mean for Sidon's corporate growth in the near and long term especially when you look at how the market has embraced Canaco Resources Inc's significant drilling results in Tanzania."

The first hole is being drilled to intersect the vein mineral extension adjacent to the workings of the vein that the Primary Mining License holders have been mining has now commenced.

The first 27 metres of this hole were in the marble unit which is visible in outcrop to the east of the main mineralized ridge. At the contact from 27 metres, metasedimentary rocks were intersected with strong silicification and up to 10% pyrite, arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite, and chalcopyrite being observed. This zone is well above the artisanal mined vein (estimated to be at between 95 -100 metres down the hole) and represents a significant envelop of mineralization associated with the contact and the mineralized vein.

Sidon International Resources is a junior exploration company with interests in Saskatchewan coal properties, gold silver claims in British Columbia, copper gold claims in Nevada, diamond properties in the Northwest Territories, and significant potash acreage in Alberta.
