Siga Resources Announces Lucky Thirteen Placer Progress

CARSON CITY, NV--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2011) - Siga Resources Inc (OTCBB: SGAE) is pleased to announce that it has now received all the raw results from the 9 bulk test pits completed in late summer and fall on the Lucky Thirteen property. More than 8,000 cubic yards were excavated and processed during the program, generating approximately 50,000 pounds of gold bearing black sands. With the raw assays in hand, Siga is modeling the tested area, and via metallurgical studies, determining an appropriate method to upgrade the wash plant concentrates and recover the fine flake gold inherent to the deposit. While too early to precisely predict production grades, Siga expects to see production levels for alone in the range of $25 to $50 per cubic yard at current price levels.

During the testing, Siga has also qualified the gravels as acceptable for the concrete and other aggregate markets, and plans for pursuing and enhancing this aspect of the Lucky Thirteen revenue stream are underway.

Siga will report on the ongoing feasibility study in the near future.
