Siga Resources Acquires Montauban Gold Tailings Claims

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2011) - (OTCBB: SGAE)

Mr. Edwin Morrow, President of Siga Resources Inc, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Montauban Gold Tailings Claims in Quebec, Canada. The tailings deposits are from the previous production of the Montauban lead-zinc-silver deposit.

Under the terms of the agreement, Siga has acquired the tailings for the issuance of 10,000,000 shares of restricted common stock of Siga Resources at a deemed value of $2.00 per share. Siga has also granted a 1.5% Net Smelter Royalty to the seller, Laguna Finance of Zurich, Switzerland.

The property is located within walking distance of the village of Montauban les Mines, about 75 miles west of Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

A report by Jean Depatie, BA, MSc, Senior Economic Geologist dated February 1982 filed with the Ministiere de L'Energie et des Resources, Gouvernment du Quebec, said, "The total estimated tonnage of tailings sampled is about 400,000 short tons. The results of analysis show average gold values of 0.0416 ounces per ton, silver values of 2.72 ounces per ton, and zinc values ranging from 0.36% to 2.64%."

The report makes it obvious that the tailings had a comprehensive drilling program of 169 holes comprising over 200 samples to delineate this tonnage and define the gold and silver values of this deposit.

Siga Resources will be conducting verification testing and metallurgical studies to develop the recovery method to maximize the recovery of these metals. Siga plans permitting of the production of these tailings and will announce a start for production when it is determined.
