The Company has been able to quickly establish two National Instrument 43-101 Inferred Resources: the UCZ at Strawberry Butte which currently has an Inferred Resource containing 366 million pounds of copper in 7 MMT grading 2.4% Cu, 0.12% Co, and 12.3 g/t Ag using a 1.5% Cu cut-off grade – see News Release dated January 6, 2011; and the recently completed Inferred Resource estimate for the Lower Copper Zone massive sulfide at Strawberry Butte containing 256 million pounds of copper in 2.5 MMT grading 4.71% Cu, 0.06% Co, and 5.1 g/t Ag, and 0.35 g/t Gold using a 1.5% Cu cut-off grade – see news release dated August 17, 2011, bringing the total copper pounds to 622 million pounds at an average grade of 2.97% Cu. The Company is well on its way of reaching its objective of a billion pounds of Measured+Indicated+Inferred resources by the end of the year.

The Company has initiated a Preliminary Economic Assessment on the UCZ to determine project economics and continues collecting environmental baseline information in preparation for an environmental assessment report and submitting a permit application for an exploration decline.

About Sheep Creek

The Sheep Creek deposit is located approximately 17 miles north of White Sulphur Springs within two miles of U.S. Highway 89 along a well-maintained gravel road. The Sheep Creek property consists of approximately 12,225 acres of fee simple lands and mining claims in central Montana. The property contains sediment-hosted zones of massive sulfide mineralization originally explored by Cominco American Inc. and BHP during the 1980's and early 1990's. Historical drilling encountered significant zones of strata-bound copper sulfide with associated cobalt and silver mineralization in multiple, bedded massive pyrite horizons in the lower part of the Precambrian Belt Supergroup. This same stratigraphic unit hosts the famous Sullivan zinc-lead-silver deposit in southeastern B.C. In a short period of time the Company has been able to establish Inferred Resources on the Upper & Lower Copper Zones at Strawberry Butte (please see Company News Releases dated January 6, 2011 & August 17, 2011). The Company continues to evaluate several tabular mineralized zones along a four kilometer strike length. The Company has three drill rigs on site and will continue drilling over the course of 2011.

Tintina is preparing an advanced underground exploration proposal which includes an evaluation decline and ancillary facilities, all located on private land in Meagher County, for presentation to the State's appropriate authorities.

About Mining in Montana

Montana has been known as a mining state for a well over 100 years. Today, more than two dozen mining operations are active making mining a cornerstone contributor to the State's GDP. Tintina has met with State regulators and looks forward to presenting the Sheep Creek project as an underground mine with a small footprint located on private land. The project continues to benefit from broad local community support.
